The UN Gets One Right

Given the news of the bombings of the HSBC Bank headquarters and British consulate in Turkey, it appears this yet to be released UN report is as they say, “spot on.”

UNITED NATIONS (CNN) — Some members of al Qaeda most likely possess portable surface-to-air missiles and may use them to target military transport planes, a U.N. report says.

The threat was among several findings detailed in the report by the United Nations’ al Qaeda and Taliban Sanctions Committee which also cited a shifting of the terror network’s strategy, a move towards “softer” targets and a warning the group was working towards a biological or chemical attack.

In regards to the missile threat, al Qaeda may now move away from targeting commercial air transport because of heightened security at facilities, said Heraldo Munoz, the Chilean ambassador to the U.N. and head of the sanctions committee.
