Has al-Qaeda successfully brought US economy to the brink of collapse?
The current economic climate in the US appears to resemble certain political agenda outlined by al-Qaeda. Following the destabilisation of the global stock market in the 9/11 attacks, the US has drowned itself in debt (despite absurd amounts of public money continually being funneled into foreign policy expenditure), and is obviously now in very hot water.

Make of it what you will, but to me it seems that capitalism is specifically being targeted, with an intention to collapse US economy to the point where it can no longer pursue political, military, or financial interests in the Middle East.
