The New, Improved Al Qaeda
Unforseen consequences (except they weren't unforeseen):
U.S. intelligence officials now have a better understanding of what the leadership of a revamped, decentralized al-Qaida looks like, says the NYT. It is younger, better trained, less likely to have ties to the struggle against the Soviets in Afghanistan, and more likely to include members from a variety of nations. Authorities say camps in remote tribal areas of Pakistan were key to the network's resurgence.
Isn't it interesting how the thing you resist, persists? Couldn't be more true with Bush. The more he fights against al Qaeda, the bigger and better it gets.
