    Damn. Americans have to refrain from giving into their frustrations and angers.

    This is from your linked article...

    Yosof Wanly said he knew Mohamed Osman Mohamud as a student at the center. Wanly said Mohamud started attending the mosque about a year and a half ago, but came on an inconsistent basis.

    "I knew him as a student," Wanly said. "He never discussed jihad and it's unfortunate because he is bringing attention to Islam in a negative way. It's unfortunate that this one individual brings negativity to the Islamic religion."
    First, I'd really be interested in knowing the background of his teacher. And two, this "one individual" is merely one among tens of thousands that bring Islam into a negative light. If they continue to pretend that their religious problems (and region) aren't the international menace it is, then they will encourage the average American (and European) to act as the ones above did. If they won't take out their own trash, then others eventually will. For this kid to behave as he did in the name of his religion, then others in this Mosque were encouraging him and fueling his rage attitude. They are also to blame and they themselves set up Islam to be dragged through the mud.

    I am wondering why Al Quaida is having that kind of impact on young people. Since 2009-2010 there have been a small number of young people who have been involved in terrorist activity.

    It's less Al-Queda and very much elderly Mullahs preaching hate.

    There are many different versions and visions of America. Each is equally valid for the people who subscribe to their vision.

    Islamic America is valid and legitimate. The problem is that some members of the community that considers itself Islamic America have heard the inspiring call of the greatest American Muslim in all of history. I refer to the New Mexico born and bred terrorist known as Imam Anwar Al Awlaki. He is the face of Islamic America.

    Unfortunately, the Ummah is more important to Muslim Americans than is solidarity with other Americans.

    Diversity of consciousness ensures that American unity can never be resurrected.

    Given that you're someone who often talks about human rights, I'm sure you were outraged about the Taliban even before 9/11.
    Neither Iraq nor Afghanistan attacked us on 9/11, in fact 15 of the hijackers were from Saudi Arabia. And most of the planning for 911 was done in Germany.

    President Bush said was going to get Osama bin Laden "dead or alive" which I supported. He gave up trying when his commanders let bin Laden get away at Tora Bora. Later Bush said he didn't care about bin Laden and didn't think much about him. So in essence President Bush said to the terrorists that needn't worry because the U.S. will not follow through.

    See, here's the problem: you don't understand the role that Afghanistan played in 9/11.
    People sleep peaceably in their beds at night only because rough men stand ready to do violence on their behalf.

    That's for saying nothing of value. Why did Bush abandon his pledged to get Osama bin Laden?

    Perhaps because Bin Laden is and has been hiding in the tribal communities of Pakistan and maintaining diplomatic relations with Pakistan requires support of the government without creating an environment where Bin laden and the Taliban and Al Qaeda would be able to topple Pakistans government? Perhaps because they (like your current god Obama) is smart enough to know that a military excursion into Pakistan would have devastating impact? Perhaps because by playing the current game of whack-a-Osama they rendered him relatively powerless and opted for inteligent response vs blind get him at all cost wisdom?
    Geez...Pete...you are a friqin world politics genius. Obama ought to hire you. You are TRULY wasting your talents hidden behind some keyboard somewhere with your vast knowledge.

    Perhaps they could have gotten when he was at Tora Bora.
