Between this morning and now another bomb was set off in Thailand, this one in Yala. Six soldiers wounded outside the Islamic Bank. Thai Police suspect a police volunteer was the Muslim terrorist who set off the bomb and blew off his own arm during the jihadist attack. At the moment, the 'official' government line is that the injured officer must be interviewed before the police definitively declare he is a terrorist. The local Thai language radio station has already crossed the threshold and is calling the officer a 'hidden terrorist'.

BREAKING: Thai Police suspect police volunteer was Muslim terrorist - blows own arm off during attack.
Date of this report: August 6, 2012 1:10pm Thailand (August 6, 2012 12:10am New York time)
Date of attack: August 6, 2012 about 8am* Thailand (August 5, 2012 9pm New York time)
* Exact time of attack unclear. Multiple Thai news sources citing different local times.
In the USA and other countries how can Police, Military and Intelligence agencies stop the infiltration of Muslim terrorists into positions of authority, trust and knowledge? That question again comes to the fore after another incident where a trusted Thai government volunteer was severely injured in an apparent premature detonation of a bomb he was about to throw at passersby.
In the morning of Monday, August 6, 2012 Abdul Tolae Sukoh, 22, a village police security force volunteer in Narathiwat's Sukhirin district, lost his right arm when a bomb he was apparently holding exploded in his hand or as it was being thrown.
Although the Thai English language press is reporting the current 'official' government line that the injured officer must be interviewed before the police definitively declare he is a terrorist, one local Thai language radio station has already crossed the threshold and is calling the officer a 'hidden terrorist'.
We will update this story as more details become known. Here is the only current reference in the Thai English language press.
Police to question volunteer injured in bomb blast
August 6, 2012 1:02 pm (August 6, 2012 12:02am New York Time)
Police are to interrogate a village volunteer, who lost an arm in a bomb explosion in Narathiwat's Sukhirin district on Monday.
Pol Col Jongjairak Kongpao, a district police chief, said police wished to know all the details of the explosion from Abdul Tolae Sukoh, 22, a village volunteer from the district's Tambon Romsai.
Abdul lost his right arm when a bomb exploded in a roadside waterway in the district on Monday morning. He is now being treated at Narathiwat Rachanakarin Hospital in the province.
Jongjairak said evidence collected at the scene included pieces of home-made bomb in a fish can as well as part's of the victim's arm.
He said the interrogation was required to discover why the bomb was by the road. A home-made bomb would have to be triggered, so if the victim found the bomb, he should have alerted police, not trigger it. "It is possible that Abdul may have triggered the bomb and was about to throw at a passer by. The bomb exploded possibly because of its short fuse.
