Al Qaeda claimed responsibility for the bombing attempt on Christmas Day by the Nigerian national who was educated in London and Dubai.
Kind of feels weird knowing he was a Masters student in Dubai at the same time I was. If he was at the same uni I didn’t meet him.
I wonder if he was at Knowledge Village or Academic City?
I notice CNN has an article on their front page titled, ‘Yemem a safe haven for Al Qaeda’. Can’t help but think sarcastically to myself, ‘It’s desperately poor, has THE lowest population education levels in the world, and it’s right next to Somalia. Who would have guessed it was so vulnerable?
Sometimes CNN seems genuinely surprised at things that don’t seem a huge stretch to me.’
