Headline of the Day

From Page 1 of Sunday's Washington Post:
From Captive To Suicide Bomber

Accused of Being Little More Than a Low-Level Taliban Fighter, Abdallah al-Ajmi Was Held by the U.S. for Nearly Four Years. After His Release, He Blew Up an Iraqi Army Outpost. Did Guantanamo Propel Him to Do It?
Who knew the WaPo endorsed the Flip Wilson defense? Especially when a founding Al Qaeda member properly blames Bin Laden.

I like that "little more than a low-level Taliban fighter." Being a low-level Taliban fighter is good enough for me to lock someone up. Being a little more is thus obviously sufficient.

Agreed, 100%.

I vote we expedite his suicide intentions, meself.

Who are we to deny him his goal in life?

And, to do so, when we can so easily provide for it for the trivial expense of a rope and a yardarm? That sounds downright criminal.

And in these harsh economic times, what could be better than a good, cheap, but very effective way to make someone's dreams come true?

Now doesn't that seem like an utterly perfect, hopey-changey kind of policy?

That woman in California who had 8 children and how has a total of her to Bin Ladin. How many children is he leaving the world to continue his dastardly deeds in destroying people with different beliefs then he has? Why is this man considered sane within his own group of people? Is it because they are all insane?

I'll "wager 400 quatloos on the newcomer".
