— Islamist militants wearing Somali military uniforms stormed a hotel favored by lawmakers in the war-battered capital Tuesday, firing indiscriminately and killing 32 people, including six parliamentarians.

A suicide bomber and one of the gunmen were also killed in the brazen attack just a half-mile from the presidential palace. The attack showed the insurgent group al-Shabab, which controls wide areas of Somalia, can penetrate even the few blocks of the capital under the control of the government and African Union troops.

Tuesday’s well-planned assault came one day after al-Shabab warned of a new “massive war.” Sheik Ali Mohamud Rage, an insurgent spokesman, said the attack by members of the group’s “special forces” targeted government leaders, foreign agents and “apostates” at the $10-a-night Muna Hotel.

It occurs to me....maybe these were Christians that did this...

...but they called themselves Islamic to throw everyone off.

Maybe Muslims aren't really responsible for any acts of terrorism. It's all Christians going around posing as Muslims!!

Anyone got the number for CNN? It'd be useless to call Fox on this one...

Bozo, ivalueamerica, Beatrice are you with me???

Oh this is nothing; insignificant compared to the horror "Christian terrorists" are guilty of almost every day....

....according to some on this forum.

The problem is that there is a media conspiracy (probably headed up by FNC) to not report the carnage of the "Christian terrorists". (it also helps that Christians completely control all media.)

Of course George probably has a lot to do with this as well.
