    Al Qaeda running scared???

    Has the news of US Special Forces finding all kinds of intel in OBL's hideout got the members of Al Qaeda running scared now?

    Al Qaeda member surrenders, Saudi Arabia says - Yahoo! News

    I highly doubt it. Maybe some of the wishy washy ones, but the true threats wont be.

    It'll be interesting to see it all unfold in the next coming months, but any member of Al Qaeda turning themselves in is always a good thing.

    I doubt that many will be turning themselves in, but I don't doubt that it has been highly disruptive to their operations as they probably don't know themselves what all has been compromised.

    I know that if my name was in Bin Laden's computer, I would be beating feet somewhere.

    Yep. Wouldn't surprise me at all if they had to abandon a few current plans, change locations, and sorta start over a little. I seriously doubt many will turn themselves in though.

    He was one of 47 on an interpol most wanted list.. I doubt they considered him a wishy washy nobody.

    Sounds like this guy was left out to dry by his group and/or they knew he gave the US intel and was going to eliminate him themselves for being a stoolie.

    I don't think that the truly devoted are necessarily running any more scared than they were when we started bombing them, but there is likely some that are seeing the US taking more proactive steps, and perhaps bypassing so called 'allies' to come after them in supposed safe-havens.

    What will be telling is watching the cockroaches scury now that the lights have turned on. more can be gathered by watching where they run then picking them up in flight.

    Nice.. I'm curious to see how the ones that surrender will be treated compared to one we capture.

    Think about it though, why run scared at this point if your whole goal is to terrorize. Doesnt fit the MO.

    I get your point.. I don't expect them to all give up now. I was just saying I don't think this guy was some unimportant nobody. I don't know the circumstances that caused him to do it, but good news nonetheless.
