Jordanian Plot Foiled


Jordanian intelligence foiled an al Qaeda plot to mount a suicide attack against a key civilian target, state television said on Wednesday.

“The intelligence department has foiled a terrorist plot of a group belonging to the al Qaeda network, of Iraqi, Libyan and Saudi nationals, to execute by a suicide bombing an operation targeting a critical civilian installation,” state television said.

Three Iraqis and a Saudi militant known as Turki Nasser Abdullah, 25, were part of the plot and were believed to be in hiding in an undisclosed neighboring country, state television said.

A security source told Reuters they had leads to indicate the four fugitives were in a secret hideaway in Syria.

Amman shares Washington’s view that Syria has become a conduit for anti-U.S. fighters heading to Iraq. But unlike Washington, Amman says there is no proof the Damascus government condoned such activities.

Hmm. Maybe Amman is wising up to Damascus’ intentions now.

    I am so tired of terrorism here, and terrorism there. Is this how the resto of our lives will be? If so, hoooray for globalism.
