By now you've read the stories about the latest Al-Qaeda threat against the USA, as delivered on Sunday June 1 by al-Qaeda spokesman Sulaiman bu Ghaith. There was a threat of this type issued about 3 weeks before Sept. 11. What's the purpose of this one?
Winds of Change starts with a careful look at al-Qaeda's strategic situation, then proposes a number of scenarios re: where al-Qaeda might be going with this threat and why. For instance, Donald Rumsfeld might want to be extra-careful on his trip to Pakistan.

Al-Qaeda isn't up to anything. They are like McCain, they thirst for publicity and love the sound of Chris Matthews saying their name!

I think they will try to bomb the White House again. They failed on the first attempt on the WTC but tried again and succeded big time. I think they will try again to get the White House. Whatever they do it will be big and terrible because anything less than the WTC would look like they are getting weaker instead of stronger.

And if they were to succeed, the end of life in the the middle east will cease to exist as they currently know it. The desert will glisten as if the sands had turned to glass.
I pray they aren't that stupid, but my logic tells me otherwise.
