Conspiracy nut case? No problem, the Times of Oman will get you published!

Yes, the throbbing media organ that is The Times of Oman continued its great tradition of fearlessly printing the hard opinions that fly in the face of the established great powers.
This classic was published in today's edition in the letters section, where one Zainab Z. Navaee (from Al Khuwair) says that Al Qaeda, who claimed responsibility for the recent Algerian suicide bombing, is obviously an outfit of the US Intelligence services.


Yep. I KNOW! Now that you've read it, its obvious isn't it? Everybody knows that any and all ills that affect the Muslim nations are due to good ol' American Imperialism. (well, when its not the Israelis, Zionists, French or UK imperialists, etc etc). Especially such things as right-wing Islamic militants who have been fighting there for decades.

You gotta laugh.

    b. Any one of various other instruments, such as the electronic organ, that resemble a pipe organ either in mechanism or sound.
    2. Biology A differentiated part of an organism, such as an eye, wing, or leaf, that performs a specific function.

    4. An instrument or a means of communication, especially a periodical issued by a political party, business firm, or other group.

    I was thinking of making it 'Essa Al Zedjali's throbbing organ', but I thought that would've been too prone to potential confusion...
