Guantanamo Prisoners to Fire Edelman
They just want attention. Don't encourage them. (NYT)
Of course you know, this means war.
"They have no regard for life, either ours or their own. I believe this was not an act of desperation, but an act of asymmetrical warfare waged against us."
Yes, an act of war as asymmetrical as a MySpace haircut -- reverse-psychological war, you might call it. It was an act of war so devious, so sneaky, that we can only imagine what the terrorists have in store for us next in this new phase of the Long, Long War. Perhaps a group of anti-American Saudi airline pilots will hijack planes, fill them with fellow jihadists, and run them into their own homes! A group of Iraqi insurgents might assassinate their favorite radical cleric! Al-Qaeda agents in the mountainous Pakistan border areas might detonate explosives at the opening of the caves they're hiding in, causing a cave-in that will permanently trap them inside and destroy the resolve and morale of international troops attempting to find them. Yes, this clearly was, as Deputy Assistant Secretary of State for Public Diplomacy Colleen Graffy told the BBC, "a good PR move." If this doesn't boost Mani bin Shaman bin Turki al-Habardi's album sales, nothing will.
