From our “We Could Have Told You This” Department, coming from the Herald, and RB:
AUSTRALIA could be the target of the next Jemaah Islamiah attack to be launched from possibly Indonesia or the Philippines, new intelligence warns….
Labor foreign affairs spokesman Kevin Rudd told Parliament yesterday new terror intelligence suggested the Philippines and Indonesia as likely launch bases for attacks against Australian interests.
Experts told Mr Rudd that JI was providing terror training to smaller outfits in the two countries and growing its membership base. “The reality is that JI is now acting more like al-Qaida,” Mr Rudd said.
Uh, could that be because they have exactly the same motivational ideology? Just wondering.
