No new terrorist doctrine

More on the Saudi Arabia bombing.

The choice of the al Muhaya compound came as a surprise to counterterrorism officials. The compound houses almost exclusively, Arab and Muslim workers from outside Saudi Arabia. The dead include seven Lebanese, four Egyptians, one Saudi and one Sudanese.

A surprise? As I said in my last post, “it is well known in fundamentalist circles that Islamic ‘traitors’–those who side with the West–are hated just as much as, if not more than, Westerners themselves.”

Either counterterrorism officials aren’t doing their homework, or the news report is wrong. I think it’s the latter.
