I don't get why we first assume that whenever we're attacked we automatically assume that Al-quaeda is behind these attacks. I want to propose a radical change in thought. There are several different terrorist organizations out there and intelligence organizations and lone nuts that could carry out these kinds of attacks themselves. Why do governments like to blame Al-quaeda for everything? I guess Al-quaeda was responsible for all of those suicide bombings in Israel too... ha. I think this is getting old. We need to start seriously questioning what our elected officials say and we can no longer take them at face value for the truth and spoken word. Now even other governments automatically blame Al-quaeda for everything. They are a terrorist organization. I don't think they're responsible for everything however.
