Al Qaeda's New Front

Who was responsible for the bombings in London? The Daily Telegraph addresses this lingering question. Responding with "Al Qaeda" doesn't do much to clarify things, as the article points out.

Also, several PBS stations are going to be running the Frontline program, "Al Qaeda's New Front," over the next few days. It contains a useful discussion of how and why spikes in Islamic extremism make Europe particularly vulnerable to terrorism, along with a refresher on the March 2004 bombings in Madrid.

Look for it (or watch it online).
