Hmmm, so what do YOU think? Is this latest news article a lot of hot air or...possibly a grain of truth about the great East Coast electrical blackout? And would we, the American public, even be allowed to know this IF it were true?
Al Qaida claims responsibility for blackout
Al Qaida's Abu Hafs Brigades has claimed responsibility for the blackout last week in the Northeast and Midwest United States. A communiqué by the Abu Hafs Brigades made reference to Operation Quick Lightning in the Land of the Tyrant of this Generation."
It was published as "the third communiqué by the "Brigades."
In the first, they accepted responsibility for the downing of an airplane in Kenya. The second accepted responsibility for the Jakarta bombing of the Marriott hotel on August 5, 2003.
The new communiqué says that in compliance with the orders of Osama bin Laden to strike at the American economy, the Brigades struck two important electricity supply targets on the East coast, according to the Middle East Media Research Institute. The Brigades say that they cannot reveal how they did it, because they will probably have to use the same method again soon. The communiqué also claimed that the operation was meant as a present for the Iraqi people.
Just a little food for thought...till I have time to write a full entry!
