Target: The Price of Oil

3 out of the 4 al Qaeda guerrillas in the Khobar, Saudi Arabia attack escaped. This is either a gross operational failure or an indication of fifth column force within Saudi security ranks.  For more background on understanding attacks on Saudi Arabia, see “Target: The Price of Oil” , “Target: Ghawar“, and “Journal:  Saudi Oil Defenses.”  I also think “Cascading System Failure” should be read given that these attacks are primarily, albeit indirectly, against global oil infrastructure.  I am working on a new post on Infrastructure take-down theory.  It should be up soon.  [John Robb's Weblog]
