Clarifications

Greetings from the city of Brotherly Love. Awoke yesterday to see the latest Al-Qaeda dog and pony show – this time featuring a thug they call “Azzam the American.” He and Zawahri thundered that Americans needed to convert to Islam “before it’s too late.”

This is good. It’s so clarifying. Like the forced conversion of Centanni and his cameraman, it leaves even the dimmest observer in no doubt about the nature of the conflict.

Oops, just a minute, I spoke too soon. Just heard the anchor on CNN asking whether Zawahri might not just be asked for understanding. As Dave Barry would say I AM NOT MAKING THIS UP.
