The good news? An al Qaeda affiliate in Algeria may have bungled a biological or chemical weapons experiment and killed at least 40 of its members.
The bad news? Al Qaeda in Algeria, Morocco and Tunisia is the “most operationally capable affiliate in the organization right now” and it is working on biological or chemical weapons.
No wonder Obama is considering a loophole for enhanced interrogations.
UPDATE BY PATTERICO: Me, I’m just reassured to see that this particular branch of al Qaeda “maintains about a dozen bases in Algeria” and may already possess biological weapons.
Happy Inauguration, everyone!
