    to "Egypt Gives Al-Qaeda Its worst Nightmare." It's not a nightmare for the US.

    Otherwise an excellent diary making a very important point. It may be that al-Zawahiri and bin Laden will try to shrug off what happened in Egypt, but in the propaganda war against them they shouldn't be allowed to: we should be making the point, loudly and repeatedly, that terror tactics are unproductive at best, counterproductive at worst.

    Al-Zawahiri helped assassinate Sadat-- and succeeded only in giving Egypt 30 years of Mubarak.

    Al-Qaeda is IRRELEVANT to the struggle for democracy in the Arab world. Egyptians have just shown this.
