The Hope? It's Not Going To Happen [Vinnie]

The Change? The first major hit from Al Qaeda on U.S. soil in over 7 years.

OSAMA bin Laden is planning an attack against the United States that will "outdo by far" September 11, an Arab newspaper in London has reported.

And according to a former senior Yemeni al-Qaeda operative, the terrorist organisation has entered a "positive phase", reinforcing specific training camps around the world that will lead the next "wave of action" against the West.

The warning, on the front page of an Arabic newspaper published in London, Al-Quds Al-Arabi - and widely reported in the major Italian papers - quotes a person described as being "very close to al-Qaeda" in Yemen.

Is the Yemeni credible? The blogosphere's renowned expert on Yemen, Jane Novak, says yes.

It's, like, 1976 all over again.

Update Some commenters are expressing their belief that Bin Laden is dead. That may very well be true. But it doesn't matter what we believe. What matters is what they believe.
