Good News: al-Qaeda Acquired Surface to Air Missiles From Libyan Arms Dump

Meet the new boss, same as the old boss.

Abdel-Hakim al-Hasidi, the Libyan rebel leader, has said jihadists who fought against allied troops in Iraq are on the front lines of the battle against Muammar Gaddafi's regime.

Mr al-Hasidi insisted his fighters "are patriots and good Muslims, not terrorists," but added that the "members of al-Qaeda are also good Muslims and are fighting against the invader".

His revelations came even as Idriss Deby Itno, Chad's president, said al-Qaeda had managed to pillage military arsenals in the Libyan rebel zone and acquired arms, "including surface-to-air missiles, which were then smuggled into their sanctuaries".

Last time I checked al-Qaeda wasn't exactly fighting for freedom and democracy, they fight to create the most oppressive form of Islamic state that can be imagined.

I hope the rest of the Libyans realize that if these folks take over you can just replace the face on the photo in your house with this guy's mug and go back to your business.
