Hmmm... while I've been reading yesterday's paper, it's been a big news day. The local CBS affiliate's website is reporting both the bombing of the UN headquarters in Iraq and an alleged Al-Qaida claim of responsibility for last week's US blackouts.

US officials have asked FOX news viewers to take this claim with "a grain of salt." My question: how frequently has Al-Qaida taken credit for disasters that were later shown not to be of their making? I'm gonna go try to google it, but if anyone has shortcuts for me, I'd appreciate it.

EDIT: The BBC still doesn't have it, for whatever that's worth. Googling just found stories about W's state of the union, so unless someone else can come up with something, I give up.
