Subject: Why does Al-Qaida operate in multiples of four???
Thomas    7/25/2005 6:08:18 AM
I've noticed that 4 seems to be a magic number to AQ. 1. There were 4 palnes in 9-11 (and I seem to remember each group had 4 members) 2. Madrid had 4 bomb. 3. London I had 4 bombs. 4. London II had 4 bombs - intended. 5. Sharm-el Sheik had 4 bombs (one dud in Cairo on a wrong date). Is there any explanation for this peculiarity?????

the average nut who signs up for this sort of thing cannot count past 4???? :-) OTOMH thought there was 19 hijackers for sept 11? there might have been a 5th guy for last week in London as they found another bomb abandoned away from the other 4 spots....

I thought about that: 9-11 I think they counted the "pilot" as extra. London no. 5: The leader/launcher.
