As if Al Qaeda “Management” has conference calls…

From the Daily Beast

“This was like a meeting of the Legion of Doom.”

Command structure

When asked about the possibility of al-Qaeda’s connection to the July 7, 2005 London bombings in 2005, Metropolitan Police Commissioner Sir Ian Blair said: “Al-Qaeda is not an organization. Al-Qaeda is a way of working… but this has the hallmark of that approach… al-Qaeda clearly has the ability to provide training… to provide expertise… and I think that is what has occurred here.”[52] On August 13, 2005, however, The Independent newspaper, quoting police and MI5 investigations, reported that the July 7 bombers had acted independently of an al-Qaeda terror mastermind someplace abroad.[53] What exactly al-Qaeda is, or was, remains in dispute. Author and journalist Adam Curtis argues that the idea of al-Qaeda as a formal organization is primarily an American invention. 

Glen Greenwald asks the obvious question:

Is the U.S. Exaggerating Qaeda Threat to Silence NSA Critics?
