Al Qaeda Claims Responsibility for Power Blackout

Al Qaeda has claimed responsibility for last Thursday’s power
blackout in the eastern United States and Canada, according to a
communique obtained by the Cairo newspaper Al-Hayat.

The communique, reported on the Web site Information
, said the brigades of Abu Fahes Al Masri hit two
power plants but did not specify how the sabotage was carried out.
‘We heard amazing statements made by the American and Canadian
enemies which have nuclear physics universities and space agencies,
that lightning hit and destroyed the two plants,’ the communique
said. ‘And we are supposed to believe this nonsense. If the
blackout occurred in one or two cities, their lie would have been
credible. But the fact is that the blackout hit the entire East and
part of Canada.’

The statement, which has not been verified by independent
sources, alleged that Osama bin Laden ordered the strikes ‘to offer
the Iraqi people a present. . . . The Americans lived a black day
they will never forget. They lived a day of terror and fear . . . a
state of chaos and confusion where looting and pillaging rampaged
the cities, just like the capital of the caliphate Baghdad, and
Afghanistan and Palestine were. Let the American people take a sip
from the same glass.’
