And This Was a “Failed” Terrorist Attack How?

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.
