Scheuer on Al-Qaeda in the Levant

The always must-read Mike Scheuer, former head of the Bin Laden unit and author of  Imperial_Hubris is doing a 4 part-series :

 that will assess the initial stages of the penetration of the Levant by al-Qaeda and other Islamist groups. This piece will look at Syria, and will be followed by analyses of the bleed-through from Iraq into Lebanon, Jordan, and Israel. The quartet of articles will seek to assess the validity of the recent claim by the state-run Syrian newspaper Al-Thawara that because of the war in Iraq “the [Levant] region is throbbing with terrorists.”

Here’s parts one and  two.  About a month ago, a friend of MediaShack published a long_piece in The National on the same topic.
