Al-Qaida following in U.S. footsteps offering rewards
The Kansas City Star
Someone needs to tell al-Qaida’s leadership that by offering rewards for the deaths of Americans it is following in the footsteps of the country it hates the most.
Al-Qaida nevertheless put a $160,000 bounty on the head of a U.S. ambassador and $23,000 reward for anyone who kills an American soldier inside Yemen, The Associated Press reports. That reward thing is so American.
The U.S. when George W. Bush was president had a bounty of $25 million on the head of super-terrorist Osama bin Laden for planning the Sept. 11, 2001, terrorist attacks. President Barack Obama ended that with the death of bin Laden in 2011.
Al-Qaida needs to come up with something more original such as delivering flowers to it foes as a peace offering in the New Year.
