Al-Queda's "Victory"

I don't usually blog on weekends, but I read an interesting article this morning. It seems that al-Queda is taking credit for ruining the economies of the West, and feels that they are proving victorious in their cowardly acts of terrorism.

Now let me see if I understand this: The West (along with the rest of the world) is going through an economic downturn that is a part of the historical cycle. More severe? Yes. Many will have to curtail purchases and make some cuts in areas.

But al-Queda is hiding in caves -- staying one step ahead of being taken out. Many of their higher-ups already have been. And the price of crude has dropped -- drying up many of their resources. Also, the world seems to be committed to finding alternative fuel sources -- which will hurt al-Queda even more.

Seems like a hollow victory to me. Am I missing something?

I'm wondering how Islamic terrorists made Fannie Mae and Freddie Mac (among others) make bad home loans.

al Queda thought bringing down the twin towers would destroy the western economies. I wonder whether they have stopped to consider if they are better off today than before 9/11?
