Swedish Foreign Minister Carl Bildt--another statesman laboring under the delusion that the gravity of his message is enhanced by its transmission on Twitter--has described the attack on Stockholm as "failed."
"Most worrying attempt at terrorist attack in crowded part of central Stockholm. Failed -- but could have been truly catastrophic," Swedish Foreign Minister Carl Bildt said in a Twitter message on Saturday.
A Swedish news agency and police said they received e-mail threats against the Swedish people 10 minutes before the explosions, which killed one person and injured two others on Saturday.
I guess he's right. A few Swedes more or less, plenty more where they came from. I'm sure the people who were injured will have forgotten about it by tonight.
