In what can best be described as a "setback" for Osama bin Laden, a man I barely know and certainly have no meaningful ties with, a worldwide poll shows support for terrorism declining among Muslims. The cause for this is unclear, but it's probably because so many other Muslims have died in terrorist attacks.

A perfect example of this is the suicide bombing here in Baghdad a few days ago. American troops were handing out a candy when some moron in a car loaded with explosives crashes into the crowd and blows himself up. What the hell was he thinking? I'm sorry, but that's the kind of publicity the insurgency doesn't need.

On the other hand, it was in a Shiite neighborhood, so.... No, no. It's still bad.
