Explosion in Texas oil plant - Al Qaeda to blame?

This could be a huge story. None of the American networks seem to be running with it yet, but the possibility of terrorist involvement can't be discounted at the moment. The next few hours will reveal a lot.

If it is Al Qaeda, it will show that they can still strike America, but it will also show that their capability has been severely downgraded. This won't have anything like the propaganda value of 9/11 in terms of illustrating radical Islam's ability to cause huge casualities to the Great Satan.

Alternatively, it could just be an accident.
