    If its true that they claimed responsibility (and I have no reason to doubt that at the moment since it was reported that they did) and since they didn't do it at all it brings up a chilling train of thought.

    There was a delay after 9/11 before Osama bin Laden claimed that he'd ordered those attacks. Is it possible that he was just saying so? even though he didn't actually do anything?

    If it's common for Islamic jihadist groups to make these claims then what if the whole Afghanistan/Iraq "adventure" was absolutely, 100% based on a fiction?

    In any case, I'm off to see this other diary, to read what Free Republic jerks think of this horror.
