MAN, THESE POOR CLOWNS CAN'T HIDE ANYWHERE:

Mali ex-rebels to tackle al-Qaeda areas (BBC, 7/20/09)

The main group of Tuareg ex-rebels in Mali has agreed to help the army tackle al-Qaeda's North African branch.

Both groups roam across the Sahara Desert and so correspondents say the deal could prove significant.

The agreement was brokered by Algeria's ambassador to Mali. Algeria is where al-Qaeda in the Islamic Maghreb stages most of its attacks.


When Salafist Arabs can't even hide in the desert you know the rout is on.
