A Breakup in Al-Qaida?

Ray Robison [1]over at the American Thinker has posted an encouraging report, that you will most likely not see in the mainstream media for another six months:

There are signs that the global Islamic jihad movement is splitting apart, in what would be a tremendous achievement for American strategy. The center of the action is in Pakistan and Afghanistan, the very territory which is thought to harbor Usama, and from which Al Qaeda was able to launch 9/11. Capitalizing on existing splits, a trap was set and closed, and the benefits have only begun to be evident.

There were already signs of a split, but recent events strengthen that trend. In March [2] and again in May [3] of this year I reviewed relevant South Asian media reporting to predict that the global Islamic jihad movement was cracking up. That theory focused on a split between the leadership of al Qaeda and the jihad groups that secure them in Pakistan such as the Taliban.

Ray gets into an extraordinarily deep analysis which I think you will find interesting, and encouraging.
