Their whole point of their propaganda machine is to demonstrate that they're worthy interlocutors of us so rather than raising money they're trying to get our attention and demonstrate how sophisticated they are and win recruits. (Are there other examples of them being able to use such technologies?) Just looking at the increasing sophistication that the video tapes that are made by al Qaeda. (Where is destroying the Saudi government on the priority list of al Qaeda?) I think it's #1 for Bin Laden, it always has been. His desire to destroy the US is because he believes we prop up Saudi Arabia.
