Newsweek Meets 21st Century War - Austin Bay

Newsweek Meets 21st Century War - On Point Commentary by Austin Bay "We have enemies looking for 'operational opportunities' on a global scale. Al Qaeda has sympathizers who are cued to react to Western news reports that 'insult Islam.' The 'fifth-columnist' throws the first stone. If he can get a couple of bored teenage boys to throw a second and third stone, he's done his job. Al Qaeda gets another 'the Muslim street is angry' story and perhaps a bloodbath.

Is this a fanciful scenario? Indian military analyst Bahukutumbi Raman claimed the Afghan riot riots in the wake of the Newsweek phony story were incited by 'well-organized agents of the Hizb ut-Tahrir terror gang.'

Welcome, Newsweek, to the 21st century -- and 21st century war."
