Saudi officials have announced the arrest of an unspecified number of al Qaeda members believed responsible for the recent bombings in Riyadh. One of those arrested, Ali Abd al-Rahman al-Faqasi al-Ghamdi, is a high-ranking al Qaeda member and is believed to have organized the bombings.
My favorite line in the Washington Post’s report: al-Ghamdi was among three men who “were arrested in an Internet cafe in the holy city of Medina.” Which neatly sums up the odd mix of medieval and modern that characterizes the Islamofascist terrorists.
In contrast to past investigations, most notably Kohbal Towers, American officials are describing the cooperation of the Saudi government as “superb.”
