#3 Islamist or Brigand? I would have said both but the article said back home he was dumped from a senior leadership position in AQ. Busted to brigand? Whatever the case, he is a thug and murder comes easy to him. He appears to be allied with AQ again.

One of these Algerian AQ-like groups is calling for the release of the blind sheik from the United States in exchange for hostages. Tell me these Islamists are as thick as thieves across this part of the world. The Muslim Brotherhood has also been trumpeting the message to release the blind sheik. When he was convicted of plotting the blow up of the WTC in the late 1990s (several people died), he should have been executed. Hanging him from the WH flagpole might have been appropriate. He either would have become a dead symbol of the grand jihad that would kick off or it would have put and end to a lot of $hit before it began.
