The Making of a Terrorist...often Born in the U.S.A.

This one was born in Kuwait and was educated and spent many years living in the U.S.A. Believe it or not, he spent his first semester at a Baptist college in North Carolina before transferring to North Carolina Agricultural and Technical State University majoring in mechanical engineering. He spent some time in an American jail and then moved on to eventually confess to the beheading of Daniel Pearl and to being one of the 9/11 masterminds...

This one was born in the U.S.A., went to Virginia Technical University, joined the Army who paid for his medical schooling, internship and residency eventually promoting him to major, while, at the same time, he was becoming radicalized at a Falls Church, Virginia, mosque by our next terrorist, who prepared him to become the famous Fort Hood shooter.

This terrorist, "the bin Laden of the Internet", was born in New Mexico, and went on to get his B.S. in Civil Engineering at Colorado State University, an M.A. in Educational Leadership (following in his father's footsteps, I suppose...NOT!), and worked on a doctorate degree at George Washington University. He then decided upon being an imam. He is the mentor to the Fort Hood Shooter and the Underwear Bomber and God only knows how many other terrorists-in-training in Yemen...a country which comes up quite a bit lately!

This one started out as Carlos Bledsoe and eventually became Abdulhakim Mujahid Muhammad and, it seems, he was also arrested and jailed in Yemen at one time for using a Somali passport...funny thing...that connection with Yemen (after reading in the first article that "Bledsoe was not part of a larger group nor was his attack part of a larger conspiracy" - that spiel is starting to sound familiar). Then we go and close our embassy in Yemen instead of keeping a presence there so that we have eyes and ears in that country. Why would our president order such a closing? Bledsoe attended a radical mosque in Memphis, TN, and seems to also have had a financially well-to-do self-employed parent who owned a Touring Company. It doesn't appear he was formally educated at university.

You know this terrorist as David Headley, but he changed his name to deceive's actually Daood Sayed Gilani and he's responsible for the terrorist attack in Mumbei., India, and he is also from a very wealthy family - his mother is actually a socialite.

This terrorist, Mohammed Atta, was one of the ringleaders of the 19 9/11 hijackers. Born in Egypt, educated at the Technical University of Hamburg, he became radicalized in a mosque in Hamburg. These mosques must have imams and leaders like Jeremiah Wright at the helm because it doesn't sound like they're learning about peace, joy and a love for God there. They seem more like terrorist training camps!

And, lastly, we have the Underpants Bomber whose father has the wealth, position and power of someone like the CEO of Bank of America. Mr. Underpants studied at all the best private schools and, it would seem, his father made the mistake of sending him to Yemen to study Arabic. He couldn't study Arabic somewhere less radical or have afforded a private tutor? a country where we have less than a population of 1% that practice the Muslim religion (or approximately 300,000) does it make more sense to profile male Muslim men who are 18-30 years of age whose ideology may lead to the downing of one of our airliners or to inconvenience some 600,000,000 people who fly into and out of the U.S.A. each year? I would volunteer to be scanned if I fell in to the small percentage which could bring danger upon our flight as I wasn't raised to believe that because I was born and raised in this country that my rights supersede those of everyone around me. What do you think? And, do you think we should be investigating a little more deeply these so called 'mosques' in America, especially the ones known for their radical leanings and tendencies? And, I am not a TSA expert, but I would take the time to go through the list of those that have the millionaire visa and I'd make sure I checked into the backgrounds of all of them immediately and thoroughly!
