    Pa. woman accused of recruiting jihadists

    A Pennsylvania woman has been charged with joining a group overseas that sources said planned to kill a Swedish cartoonist whose drawings of the Prophet Muhammed provoked worldwide outrage.

    A federal indictment unveiled Tuesday alleges that Colleen LaRose, 46, of Montgomery County, Pennsylvania, called herself "Jihad Jane" and was also known as Fatima Larose. It says she agreed to kill a Swede on orders from unnamed terrorists and traveled to Europe to carry out the killing.

    Blond, blue-eyed jihadist.... tsk, tsk...

    she thought her appearance would help her move freely in Sweden to carry out the attack, the indictment said.
    it shatters any lingering thought that we can spot a terrorist based on appearance," U.S. Attorney Michael Levy said.

    Well racial profiling wouldn't have gotten that one then eh?

    I don't understand why people want to kill another man over a cartoon though. It may have been insulting or insensitive or whatever, but in the end it's just a cartoon. People need to put things in perspective.

    They say it's a small world but the cultures living on it might as well be from different planets.

    There is no understanding.

    Yeah. But on the same accord, I don't think it's beyond human comprehension to understand that murder for an insulting cartoon is a bit much of an overreaction. But I guess maybe experimentally it's saying it is. Unfortunate.

    This one was easy. The moron pretty much advertised it on the Internet. It's the smart ones we don't know about that worry me.

    I would tend to agree. makes good sense.

    But I just got through skyping my buddy who is a big shot for Chevron running these new-fangled super-oil rigs. He told me some stories about the people in New Guienea (sp?) he worked around. They have no concept of minutes, hours, days, weeks, and can't tell you how old they are. My friend pointed a laser pointer at one of them and the other damn near beat his friend to death trying to rid him of this evil spirit. True story.

    My point is, middle easterners think with a differnt brain than we do. I suspect they think, things that are logical to us in every sense, are just as foreign to their line of thought as theirs is to ours.

    Venus and mars. Impossible to relate.

    It's hardwired on both ends. How can that be fixed?

    Profiling isn't the only or end-all-beat-all tool. It's just one of many that should be employed with restrictive oversight and management. There's a way to intelligently do things and the not so intelligent way. Hopefully we can use the former.
    I think if Thomas Jefferson were looking down, the author of the Bill of Rights, on whats being proposed here, hed agree with it. He would agree that the First Amendment cannot be absolute. - Chuck Schumer (D). Yet, Madison and Mason wrote the Bill of Rights, according to Sheila Jackson Lee, 400 years ago. Yup, it's a fact.

    Those guys simply do not have the western perspective on these things. They are probably saying the same thing about us and how it should be obvious to us why we shouldn't do those things that piss them off so badly.

    Re: Pa. woman accused of recruiting jihadists

    Ummm...is it just me or does this woman seem a few keys short of a keyboard?

    Babbling about secret conspiracies and terrorists is a good way to get attention and dangling information about "secret terrorist groups" in a country where they are probably not going to to torture you seems like an attention scheme more than anything.
