Al Qaeda in Jordan

I've Been Thinking:
The first missile attack from Jordan to Eilat since 1968 took place today.
Three Katyusha missiles were shot inside the port city of Aqaba, Jordan today.
Jordanian intelligence recently interrogated several al Qaeda members who confessed to a plan to fire rockets at Israel from Aqaba.
Both Egypt and Jordan have serious al Qaeda cells working and planning and attacking, we have witnessed their work. Both countries are working hard to confront al Qaeda, but the threat is far from over. For these two Western-leaning Arab countries, like for all Western countries, this is only beginning.
There is one redeeming point: al Qaeda terrorists are terrible shots.
