This is an interesting bit of speculation from the Wall St. Journal that touches on a question I've been interested in for a while. KSM is said to be a Baluch from Kuwait, which is a fascinating notion to me. The folks I've met who have Baluchistan ties have been princes of fellows. The so-called "Lions of Pakistan," they are a tribal people whose independence is carefully, and vigorously, guarded. How Baluchi ended up as leaders in al Qaeda will prove to be a fascinating story, whether or not Iraqi intelligence was involved as the article suggests.
