Morocco: 'Terror Cell' Busted

Daily Star

RABAT: Morocco said on Monday it has arrested eight people suspected of plotting attacks against strategic sites, less than a week after the kingdom announced it had dismantled a "terrorist" cell.

The latest arrests targeted a group called Ansar al-Sharia in the Islamic Maghreb, dismantling the cell whose eight members planned to "commit acts of sabotage against strategic sites," said an interior ministry statement.

The cell's targets included "sensitive buildings, security headquarters and tourist sites in several Moroccan cities," it added.

The suspects "were developing contacts with terrorist groups linked to Al-Qaeda," whose North African franchise[AQIM..ed] is active in the Sahel region and in northern Mali, the statement said.[More...]

Libyan Ansar al-Shariah[Partisans of Islamic Law] is responsible for the attack on the Benghazi compound and bragged to AQIM about it.

No bronco bamma, al-Qaeda is not on it's heels.

1 Doesn't matter if Al Queda is on it's heels or not. Islam isn't. Therefore there's many little Al Queda's in the works waiting to replace them. Someone is supplying the money, the weapons, the intell and it happens to be the sweet smiling moderate muslim down the street. Along with some extremely wealthy nitwits dressed in sheets and protected by guess who. But what the hell. We would be crazy to add them to Arab Springs list of conquests.
Between a rock and a hard place is where we're at.
Unless someone should decide to drill, drill, drill and start growing sugar cane by the square mile. Obama wouldn't like that.
