Bombings in Tashkent

A group ed with al-Qaeda has taken responsibility for the attacks on the American and Israeli embassies in Tashkent. I don't have any comment on the ongoing investigation into what happened, nor do I think there is a connection between this and our decision to suspend $18 million in aid to Uzbekistan. However, I do think that if this had happened right after the Republican convention, some individuals would argue that the terrorists were trying to distract attention from Bush so as to help throw the election to Kerry.
