The Al Qaeda 'Playbook' Revealed

From ABC News:

"U.S. intelligence is now in possession of a veritable "playbook" of al Qaeda operations -- from potential terror attack targets to information on international safe houses and top commanders -- thanks to the Navy SEAL raid that took down Osama bin Laden Sunday, officials told ABC News today.
"The cache of electronic and handwritten materials obtained by the SEALs includes numerous hallmark al Qaeda plots including attacks on infrastructure targets such as water supply and transportation including rail and air, in what one official described as a "strategic guide for how to attack the U.S." In the past, al Qaeda planned for attacks on water supplies have included an interest in mining dams and in poisoning water supply. Intelligence experts have also have found what appears to be information about safe houses around the world and about al Qaeda leadership."

Born Again,

If any Al Qaeda could be converted so that they changed their murderous, evil ways I would say try and convert them but they are so entrenched in their barbaric ways I agree with you about the only good Al Qeada being a dead one.

Most definitely! May God Bless George Bush, our Seals, troops, and may God keep them safe.

I fail to understand why the Obama administration doesn't keep their collective mouths shut about what they found in OBL's lair in Abbottabad. Let AQ wonder what we've got!

Now that AQ knows that we have "the playbook," AQ will move in different directions for which our national security will be unprepared.
