Al Qaeda apologizes? Al Qaeda apologizes:
It’s something you don’t often hear from the leaders of a terrorist group known for violence: We’re sorry.
But that’s just what the head of al Qaeda in the Arabian Peninsula said in a video message Sunday, apologizing for a hospital attack in Sanaa earlier this month that left dozens of people dead.
The attackers were directed not to assault the hospital or mosque in an attack against a Yemeni Ministry of Defense compound on December 5, but one fighter made a mistake and attacked the hospital, leader Qassim Al-Raimi says in the video.
“We confess to this mistake and fault. We offer our apologies and condolences to the families of the victims,” Raimi said in the video, which was published by al Qaeda media outlet Al-Malahim. “We did not want your lost ones; we did not target them on purpose. This is not of our religion or our morals.”
Yeah. Not buying it.
