There is a statement signed by the "Al Qaeda in the Arab Peninsula" but it is not a claim of responsibility.
Saudi security forces have cornered suspected al Qaeda
There seems to be varying reports on this matter:
From FoxNews: "The Al-Quds (Jerusalem) Brigade claimed responsibility for the attack in statements posted on Islamic Web sites. One statement, signed
the "Al Qaeda (search) in the Arab Peninsula," said the attacks targeted U.S. companies and that a number of "crusaders" had been killed."
From CTV: " A statement, supposedly from Osama bin Laden's al Qaeda network, has claimed responsibility for the attacks."
Are the Al-Quds Brigade part of Al Qaeda?

More info has been released about the Briton who was dragged to death behind a car.
Apparently the Saudi police were not in very hot pursuit, if the gunmen had time to kill a man in front of his co-workers, tie his body to their car,
drive a mile down the road, and dump him near a bridge before escaping into the Oasis housing complex. What were the police and military doing while
this was going on? Presumably, all 4 gunmen were escaping in the same vehicle.
They seem to take pleasure in desecrating the bodies of Americans, but
only after they are already dead. This is obviously meant to horrify and outrage Americans, or show how brutal and savage they can behave. They
don't seem to be as savage as they would have us think however, since they don't usually torture our men while they are still alive. In fact,
Thomas Hamill was even given medical attention for an infected wound, by his captors.
I am not saying that they don't commit atrocities or murder innocent people, by any means. I am just saying that, for being the souless brutes,
with no conscience, that people claim them to be, most of them seem to have limits to what they will do (fortunately).
I wish there was more information about, "The suspected Islamist extremists later released eight of their captives, who reported that more than 50
people were still being held."
Why would they release 8 of their hostages, 7 of which are American, if it is Americans they want to kill? This development sort of squashes that
