A challenge is demanded as well [as Batocchio at Crooks and Liars points out] from the Washington Post which owes the world an apology for this item. As James Fallows of The Atlantic notes:
Read it and weep. On the Post's site Jennifer Rubin first quotes the Weekly Standard, in a rushed item about the Norway horror:
We don't know if al Qaeda was directly responsible for today's events, but in all likelihood the attack was launched by part of the jihadist hydra. Prominent jihadists have already claimed online that the attack is payback for Norway's involvement in the war in Afghanistan.Then she goes on to argue on her own:
Moreover, there is a specific jihadist connection here: 'Just nine days ago, Norwegian authorities filed charges against Mullah Krekar, an infamous al Qaeda-affiliated terrorist who, with help from Osama bin Laden, founded Ansar al Islam - a branch of al Qaeda in northern Iraq - in late 2001.'
