1. Al Qaeda has become a synonym for terrorist. How many
times a day do we hear Al Qaeda? Any attack becomes AQ did it. We get that all the time from Shrub. He has based his entire presidency on AQ. When have we heard him mention Osama bin Laden in the last couple of years? I have become so cynical I have begun to believe everything and nothing.

Responsibility Claim Is Posted on Militant Site

By THE ASSOCIATED PRESS

Filed at 9:05 a.m. ET

CAIRO, Egypt (AP) -- A group calling itself ''The Secret Organization of al-Qaida in Europe'' posted a claim of responsibility for Thursday's blasts in London, saying they were in retaliation for Britain's involvement in Iraq and Afghanistan.

<>''Rejoice, Islamic nation. Rejoice, Arab world. The time has come for vengeance against the Zionist crusader government of Britain in response to the massacres Britain committed in Iraq and Afghanistan,'' said the statement, translated by The Associated Press in Cairo. The AP was unable to access the Web site where it was posted, which was closed quickly after the reports.

The group al-Qaida in Europe claimed responsibility for the last major terror attack in Europe: a string of bombs that hit commuter trains in Madrid, Spain in March 2004, killing 191 people. Two days after that attack, a video was found in a trash can outside a Madrid mosque with a statement purported to be from the group's spokesman, called by the nickname ''Abu Dujan al Afghani.''

<>''We continue to warn the governments of Denmark and Italy and all crusader governments that they will receive the same punishment if they do not withdraw their troops from Iraq and Afghanistan,'' the statement went on.

It was signed ''The Secret Organization of al-Qaida in Europe.''

4. CNN reported that the "Al Qaeda Europeean Jihad"

or whatever they call themselves, said on their website that Italy and Denmark should get their troops out of Iraq. No direct threat of attacks was reported but I'm sure the Italians and Danes will get the message.
