It seems like Al Qaida faces a threat just as deadly as American bombers: The bubonic plague.
According to this news report, the plague swept through a terrorist training camp in Algeria and killed at least 40 trainees. What's more, the disease might also be spreading to other terrorist camps around the world.
The story quotes one security expert as saying, “This is the deadliest weapon yet in the war against terror. Most of the terrorists do not have the basic medical supplies needed to treat the disease."
Somehow it seems appropriate that a group espousing a Medieval view of the world would be afflicted with a sickness that once ravaged the Medieval world.
