    Al Qaeda Apologizes For Yemen Hospital Attack

    CAIRO (AP) — In a rare public apology, the military leader of al-Qaida's branch in Yemen has said that one of his fighters disobeyed orders and attacked a hospital attached to the Defense Ministry during a December assault that killed 52 people.Qassim al-Rimi, commander of al-Qaida in the Arabian Peninsula, said in a video posted on militant websites that the attackers were warned in advance not to enter the hospital within the complex, nor a place for prayer there. But he said one fighter did.
    "Now we acknowledge our mistake and guilt," al-Rimi said in a video released late Saturday by al-Qaida's media arm al-Mallahem. "We offer our apology and condolences to the victims' families. We accept full responsibility for what happened in the hospital and will pay blood money for the victims' families."
    The apology seemed prompted by Yemen state television earlier broadcasting a video showing a gunman attacking doctors and other hospital staff. Several al-Qaida jihadis tried to dismiss the video as fake on militant websites, but the outcry apparently embarrassed the al-Qaida branch to the point of issuing an unusual expression of regret from the group.
    "We rid ourselves of what our brother did," al-Rimi said. "We did not order him to do so and we are not pleased with what he did."
    However, al-Rimi said despite the group making a mistake, "we are continuing with our jihad."

    I don't imagine in their acceptance of "full responsibility and quilt" that they will be surrendering to the authorities and putting themselves at the mercy of the court.

    Sounds like they have the same problem as the CIA drone operators. That Yemeni wedding party that got roasted might be looking for a little blood money, don't you think? One would think our murderers would have a little more class, eh?

    Nobody justifies murder quite as brazenly as religious zealots.

    If we can make everything fine with a few goats, this whole Mideast dispute could be wrapped up rather quickly with the US free of any guilt whatsoever.

    So where do the socialists in the thread come down on this - pro-terrorist or pro-innocent?

    Well, socialists and "theocratic terrorists" are both militant, authoritarian, and obsessive. It's a legitimate question.
