Al Qaeda Tape: Lessons To Be Learned?

Our dear friend al-Zawahiri put out another tape today, encouraging terrorists to kill more innocent people. Nice guy.

But one part of his tape said this:

Al-Zawahiri also bemoaned the lack of support for Al Qaeda-linked militants in Saudi Arabia, saying the mujahedeen had suffered "defeat" amid a high-profile anti-terror campaign by Saudi authorities.

"These idolatrous regimes achieve victory over us because each one of us wants to save his own skin and avoid harm for himself," al-Zawahiri said on the tape.

"As long as this malignant illness continues to survive within us, there is no hope for victory and there can only be more defeats, tragedies, disasters and betrayals."

Saudi Arabia, the birthplace of Al Qaeda leader Usama bin Laden, has been struck by multiple bombings and attacks since 2003 and has since waged a fierce crackdown against militants.

So, Al-Qaeda has been hurt enough in Saudi for them to consider themselves on the verge of defeat there. Good news, but I would like to know what lessons can be learned that can maybe be applied elsewhere. What tactics did the Saudis use? Can we do the same?
