Jihadists Quick To Boast of Yet Another Failed Attack

Jihadists apparently are hoping to capitalize on whatever they can these days, successful or not.

Newsweek – In what appears to be the latest effort by Islamic militants to lower the bar for what constitutes a “successful” terrorist attack, extremists have publicly boasted of an attempted chemical attack on the U.S. Embassy in Paris. In a message posted earlier this week on a jihadist Web site, the previously unknown Abu Dujanah al-Khorasani Brigade claimed responsibility for sending what it described as “chemical letters” to the embassy. News reports from Paris said two embassy employees were examined and then released by a city hospital after handling a suspicious letter last Friday.

However, recent reports indicate the letters contained no tear gas or any other obvious toxin or irritant. So why are jihadist’s boasting of such incidents?
