We’re Dealing with Idiots

al-Qaeda threatens the EU again. Europeans cover their ears.

In a new audio message purportedly from Osama Bin Laden, the al-Qaeda leader threatens the EU over the re-printing of a cartoon offensive to Muslims.

The voice on it says the cartoon, re-published recently in all major Danish newspapers, was part of a crusade involving Pope Benedict XVI.
Oh that warmongering pope!

In fact what's sadder is that in view of this purported threat which "premiered" on Al Jazeera and is purported to be from "Ben" Laden, a search of Le Monde's archives, that "independant" news paper of record, yields something even sadder: a goofy bit of artist-dabbling-in-politicking taking a kind of one-man-show vainglory.
