"If ye love wealth greater than liberty, the tranquility of servitude better than the animating contest for freedom, go home and leave us in peace. We seek not your council nor your arms. Crouch down and lick the hand that feeds you, and may posterity forget that ye were our countrymen." - Samuel Adams

Apparently a group called Aden-Abyan Islamic Army is claiming responsibility for the attack on the French tanker.

The Aden-Abyan Islamic Army, in its statement received here Thursday, said one of its "squadrons" attacked the supertanker Limburg, which was "going to supply the (US Navy) Fifth Fleet for striking the brothers in Iraq."

It said the actual target had not been the French ship but an unnamed US Navy frigate which was in the area, adding that this made no difference "because the unbelievers' nation is one."

Seems kind of sketchy. When these things happen there will be plenty of groups that want to claim responsibilty. But, you never know until it is investigated.
