You're never gonna believe who's claiming responsibility for Saturday's attempted terror attack…
In a statement posted on the Internet, al-Qaida in the Arabian Peninsula said 23-year-old Nigerian Umar Farouk Abdulmutallab coordinated with members of the group, an alliance of militants based in Saudi Arabia and Yemen…
The group said Abdulmutallab used explosives manufactured by al-Qaida members. "He managed to penetrate all devices and modern advanced technology and security checkpoints in international airports bravely without fear of death," the group said in the statement, "relying on God and defying the large myth of American and international intelligence, and exposing how fragile they are, bringing their nose to the ground, and making them regret all what they spent on security technology."
I'm not sure is there's an Arabic equivalent of the phrase "People who live in glass houses…," but it's not as if their brilliant plan to explode a plane by setting his underwear on fire went off without a hitch.
Look, I'm just saying, it's one thing to attempt to murder several dozen innocent people because of your silly beliefs in mythological sky deities. But it a-whole-nother thing to go throwing around hurtful criticisms of our competence when your organization is just as hapless.
Can't we just agree that we're all idiots, and move on?
