Al-Qaeda's Latest Attack

London has been hit by a terrorist attack. The political fallout from this will be significant. First, the President was in country, attending the G8 meeting in Scotland. Second, this is one of our few allies left in the War on Terrorism, and there is no predicting how the British will respond to this. Third, this is right after the announcement for the 2012 Olympics.

Oh. At the time of this writing, nobody’s raised the threat level.
