WTF is going on here? Today’s San Jose Mercury News has a very small report on page 8. I’ll look for the wire service it came from, and see if I can find confirmation online.
This is the entire article:
“Fewer Al-Qaida members than reported, FBI says
Senior FBI officials believe there are now no more than 200 hard-core Al-Qaida members throughout the world.
“Al-Qaida itself, we know, is less than 200,” said an FBI official, referring to those who have sworn allegiance to Osama bin Laden, the alleged mastermind behind the Sept. 11 terrorist attacks.
That figure, far less than recent media reports suggested were in the United States alone, is based on FBI and CIA reports.”
If this is an accurate report, I have to ask, WHAT THE F$$$ IS GOING ON HERE?
