Washington Post Buries Al Qaeda’s Statement Concerning Jordan Bombings

You would think that this would be front-page, headline news:

“The insurgent organization al Qaeda in Iraq asserted responsibility Thursday for the blasts that tore through three hotels here the night before, the deadliest terrorist attack ever carried out in Jordan.

“‘After studying and observing the targets, the places of execution were chosen to be some hotels which the tyrant of Jordan has turned into a back yard for the enemies of Islam, such as the Jews and Crusaders,’" the group said in a statement.”

Oddly, the editors of the Washington Post must not have thought a statement from the terrorist organization that has declared war on America was very important, for they buried it on page A21.

Instead, on the front-page were articles about the housing market cooling, a woman who has robbed four banks while talking on her cell phone, and allegations that former House majority leader Tom DeLay (R-Texas) made a plea bargain before he was indicted.

Everyone has to have priorities.
