If any of you were worried that the world might actually be getting to be a safer place now that we've laid down the law in Iraq, have fear. Apparently, there are still at least three al Qaeda cells operating in Saudi Arabia. We know this because they managed to pull off three simultaneous suicide bombings. But wait, there's more: as of today, the State Department is closing our embassies in Saudi Arabia due to the heighted threat. And all of this comes after we announced that we will be pulling our troops out of the Kingdom, which is what al Qaeda said they wanted in the first place.

My favorite line from the Times article: "Both Saudi and American officials said the renewed threat against both countries would result in closer cooperation." Perfect, if there was anyone I was hoping we'd get closer to, it was the Saudi government.
