German towns? Now wait a minute. I thought we were supposed to believe this was all about Iraq, and if we just left there, there would be peace. Well, those who have been reading Jihad Watch regularly already know better. From Deutsche Welle, with thanks to Trupolitik:
An al Qaeda suspect arrested in Pakistan on Sunday night was carrying a computer with maps and details of German and Italian towns saved on its hard drive, according to Pakistani security sources.
Could Germany have been a target for a major terror attack? According to reports that a Pakistani terror suspect arrested in Faisalabad on Sunday, it could well have been.
The reports, attributed to information gained by the Associated Press from a Pakistani Secret Service employee, suggest that al Qaeda suspect Osama Bin Yousaf, the operator of a public telephone call shop, was caught in the northeastern industrial city in Punjab province in possession of the computer containing the details of four towns, a number of credit cards, dozens of CDs, three grenades and two AK-47 machine guns with ammunition.
Bin Yousaf has not yet explained why he had the plans of the four towns saved on the computer. Official refused to identify which towns were detailed on the computer.
