Not Unexpected

The NeoCon was in Jordan last June, at the La Royal Hotel (Seen in the Photo in the background) right down the street from two of the hotels hit today in the heart of Amman (the Radisson and the Hyatt). The NeoCon can report first hand that the lack of real security on the premises was particularly apparent as any person could enter the hotel unchallenged, and any un-inspected vehicle could approach the front entrance/lobby area. It was certainly strange to the NeoCon at the time that there would be such a presumption of immunity. Jordan is a uniquely appealing target for radical Islam because it is viewed from their perspective as a "collaborator state" and easily penetrated by radical Arab elements that can blend in undetected. Very few people in the know will be surprised at these attacks.
