Al Qaida leader voices encouragement to Libyan rebels
Al Qaida is supporting the Libyan rebels. How deep that support goes is up in the air.
Nonetheless, a senior Al Qaida leader is urging the Libyan rebels to continue their fight.
This is exactly why I maintain that the US should stay out of these "revolutions" in the Arab world, and see who takes power when they are done.
We simply do not know who is supporting these rebellions, and certainly have no idea what the power base will look like in the end.
Better the devil you know than the devil you don't.
Especially in the Arab world.
