Al Qaeda Admits Saudi Refinery Attack

From the Associated Press:
Al-Qaida suicide bombers will attack more Saudi oil facilities, the terror group purportedly threatened Saturday in an Internet statement that claimed responsibility for the foiled attack on the Abiqaiq plant in eastern Saudi Arabia.

Two suicide bombers tried to drive cars packed with explosives into Abiqaiq, the world's largest oil processing facility, on Friday afternoon, but security guards opened fire and the vehicles exploded outside the gates, killing the bombers and fatally wounding two guards.
Is anyone surprised? With the Saudi oil refinery attack and the bombing of the Samarra mosque, al Qaeda has effectively declared war on fellow Muslims. I wonder how that will play out on the "Arab street".
