I’m not into war talk, but I have been following this story enough to know what’s going on. I say that first, because I have friends on both sides of the coin: drop the subject or let’s beat it to death with a double-tap of the broom. I want to make it clear that I’m not on either side of that coin, so if an interesting story comes of this negativity, I’m going to look at it.
That said, I found this article fascinating because there is a very subtle shift in the way Al Qaida spokesmen sound. They used to sound like scary boogeymen, but now they sound like a faint echo. There is no energetic punch behind their words anymore. Anyone else think so?
