And, just for clarification...

Courtesy of Jenna (via Google Reader), we are reminded that al-Qaeda affiliates (e.g., al-Qaeda in the Arabian Peninsula, al-Qaeda in Iraq, etc) are not quite the real al-Qaeda Central (in Pakistan). For a brief primer, check out this post in a great Middle Eastern blog, The Majlis.

I almost think that renaming each regional terror organization "al-Qaeda" is actually a global misinformation and deception campaign against the West. And I'm not entirely sarcastic when I say that, either (note bin Laden's words, starting with "two mujahadeen fighters".
