WAR: The Belly of the Eagle

The Weekly Standard carries a scary analysis of the latest bin Laden audiotape, asking (on the assumption that it's actually bin Laden, which is at least open to debate), where and how he means to strike when he refers to the "belly of the Eagle." Perhaps this is undermined by the argument that bin Laden would target harbors, but let's assume that the message is a coded order. Picture the typical icon of the American Eagle superimposed on a map of the continental 48 states, and ask where the belly is. I'd say somewhere in Texas, no? A symbolic place to target, given the Texan who has scattered bin Laden and his organization to the four winds.
