I don't agree with violence, but let me ask a question:

If you were held and tortured by a government after committing no crime, would you commit a terrorist act against the country that illegally held and tortured you?

No. And how do you know they committed no crime?

Reading your statement you are condoning the terrorists actions.

Well, isn't this what the Left, the ACLU and other terrorist sympathizing organizations have been harping on for years?

They pushed and pushed to get the "harmless" terrorists released and repatriated - and look what happens - this isn't the first time a released Gitmo detainee has been caught back on the battlefield.

AQ blamed the recent strikes in Yemen for their retaliation - is that not a valid reason?

Outrage As Feds Curb Shoe Bomber Prison Rules
By Jessica Fargen / Herald Exclusive | Sunday, September 20, 2009 | http://www.bostonherald.com | Local Coverage

Photo by AP


Airplane shoe bomber Richard C. Reid no longer faces severe limits on his prison activities or communications after the Obama administration quietly ended years of hard-nosed curbs against the British-born al-Qaeda terrorist.
This summer the Justice Department halted six years of measures that kept Reid from associating or praying with fellow jailed Muslim terrorists, and limited his access to the news media and pen pals.



Obama tried a different approach.....his comforting of terrorists failed.

good grief
I am so sick of hearing the attacks on the US are some how our fault
the people that went to work on 911 had done nothing
the people on the planes these ass holes used had done nothing
you can by into the bull crap that it is all our fault all you want to
Obama has done everything but to get down on his knees begging for the US to be forgiven
it sickens me to the core
this latest guy tried to blow up a plane with 300 people, think they were at fault??
good grief, where does this thinking come from???
