Al who?

I just finished reading Holy War, Inc, which traces the life of Osama Bin Laden and the formation of Al Quaeda. One interesting aspect of the bearded one’s life is his habit of forming the terrorist equivalent of crushes on older radicals who affect his outlook and aims. Most prominent of these is Ayman Al-Zawahiri. The FBI want him, but relative to The Most Evil Man On Earth (TM) he hardly merits a mention elsewhere. A check on that top gauge of importance, Google, shows that al-zawahiri returns 70,900 results to bin-laden’s 4,190,000.

Just a warning that, even if OBL is caught in time for the US elections there’ll still be people out there determined to destroy America and, by extension, Britain. Though Tony and George won’t mention that, of course.
