Interesting article in the UK’s Guardian yesterday about how pleased Al Qaeda is with the “Arab Spring.” Former CIA boss in charge of pursuing Osama bin Laden, Mr. Michael Scheuer, says that the revolts in the Arab world are having a devastating effect on the intelligence networks of the US and UK.
