"Three Cushion Shot"

Via Michael Ledeen, via Andrew M Garland, via Samizdata:
"...bin Laden doesn’t want to admit defeat in Afghanistan, and Egypt might appear too big for a small organization like al-Qaeda, and so there’s an internal rift... Which gives bin Laden’s enemies inside al-Qaeda a motive for betrayal, either on their own or via the Pakistanis who have been protecting them all these years.”
Was it a deal? That would explain a lot of things.
