If this news report is true, then good for President Bush! It might also explain why U.S. authorities are being extremely tight-lipped about it.
But remember, this is being reported by Al-Jazeera via the Jerusalem Post. Both The Jawa Report and Confederate Yankee think it is just the beginning of yet another Arab conspiracy theory and/or the usual media incompetence.
But, if it is true, then this report from Al-Khaleej , published in the United Arab Emirates, would then be extremely relevant, don't you think?
Nevertheless, if the Arab/Islamic world even thinks it is true, then what happened in the Syrian desert on September 6 was exactly the proper message that needed to be delivered to certain mullahs and delusional heads of state in the region.
Either way, it was a pleasant surprise.
