Al Qaeda apologizes for attack


Trust me, I'm The Doctor.
Al Qaeda: We're sorry about Yemen hospital attack - CNN.com

It is so odd to see a terrorist group apologizing for an attack. What had happened was the terrorists were instructed not to attack the nearby hospital or mosque. One of them made a mistake and attacked a hospital. This may be the first time I can recall any terrorist group apologizing and accepting responsibility for attacking an unintended target.

Qassim Al-Raim said:
"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."

I have to wonder if they are really worried about killing Muslims or Muslims turning against them. They called this a mistake, how do you mistake a hospital for a Defense Ministry compound. I'm sure compensation to the families is going to make everything alright.

They are desperate for support in Muslim nations so apologizing, I assume, is a way to make sure those countries don't turn on them

Still weird to read regardless though
