Long Quote Of The Day | Main | Feds Indict Two In Anti-Aircraft Missile Sting
November 10, 2005

Was the Target of the Amman Bombing the Palestinian Authority?

The Purple Avenger notes that a brigadier general in the PA's military intelligence branch was killed in the bombing.

Is that a coincidence? Or was he the target?

Thanks to cutaway.

It Hardly Needs To Even Be Said Update: A CNBC news producer says that the Amman bombing casts doubt on George Bush's anti-terrorism policies.

I didn't know that the DHS now had a branch office in Jordan.

Just curious-- if Bush is responsible for the bombings in Jordan, is he likewise responsible for the lack of bombings in the United States itself?

No?

Didn't think so.

Arab Street Update: The Arab Street is angry. At Al Qaeda.

Three terror bombings that killed at least 56 people in Jordan's capital sparked furious protests against al Qaeda on Thursday after a Web site carried a claim that the group was behind the attacks.

Jordanians flooded Amman blaring car horns and waving the nation's flag to protest the suicide attacks at three hotels with Western connections.

Hundreds of angry Jordanians rallied shouting, "Burn in hell, Abu Musab al-Zarqawi!" after the terrorist group he leads claimed responsibility for the blasts.

A CNBC news producer blamed Bush for Jordanian rage at Al Qaeda, until he realized it was a good thing, and then he said "Hey, what's that big spider doing on your shoulder?" and quickly sneaked off the set.
