Terrorist Attacks in Saudi Arabia
At least 50 people have been injured in gun and bombing attack in Saudi Arabia. Collin Powell will be visting the kingdom today. Signs point to al-Qaeda. If that's the case, it's their first major since the Bali bombings. Al-Qaeda might have thought that with the easy victory in Iraq our guard might have been down. They may have been right, but with al-Qaeda being a Wahabbi terrorist group and Saudi Arabia being the birthplace of Wahabbism, you know there were plenty of sympathetic Saudis willing to help with the attacks. The Islamist War is far from over.
