Very strange. As I recall within DoD, no counterterrorism action could be taken on "single source" intelligence alone. Action generally required two or more intelligence disciplines to initiate. Crediting a single source for dismantling networks seems a bit disingenuous.
And so what? Islam is not something you get at birh and cannot do anything about it like race, it is an ideology just like nazism, pre WWII japanese nationalism, communism, Democratic or Republican party affiliation being a fan of Madonna or a supporter of the Lakers.
I have every right of taking a close look to your ideas and if I feel they are evil not wanting to do anything with you, and if they are evil and if I think you pay them more than lip service and you are a danger for my beloved ones, I see no reason why I shouldn't take measures against you.
Matusitz said on the show that he refuses to be "politically correct just to please everybody."
"I think that in academia, I'm sure a lot of people don't share my views," he said. "But I also think that a lot of people share my views, but they're not as open as I am."
I like this guy already! Perhaps there is hope for Academia after all.
Oh no! Watch out! He's using an Assault Fact: He cites a statistic that indicates the vast majority of victims of terrorism were victims of Islamic terrorism.
"So when my colleagues tell me that Islam is a religion of peace, I tell them that Islam is a religion of pieces: piece of body here, piece of body there," he says in that video.
[Dawn] ATTACKING a funeral is diabolical by any standard, yet religious bully boyz in Pakistain have no qualms about using such bloody tactics to forward their aims. Though no group has yet grabbed credit, the suicide kaboom that targeted a funeral procession in Mardan on Tuesday bears the mark of myrmidon myrmidons, who have used similar tactics in the past. Over 30 people were killed, including Imran Mohmand, a provincial politician elected as an independent, but who voted for the PTI in the election for the Khyber-Pakhtunkhwa ... formerly NWFP, still Terrorism Central... Assembly's leader of the house. Police feel the politician was the target as he had already been receiving death threats. Over the past few days we have seen the scale of violence and level of ferocity the bully boyz are capable of, from the killing of two polio ...Poliomyelitis is a disease caused by infection with the poliovirus. Between 1840 and the 1950s, polio was a worldwide epidemic. Since the development of polio vaccines the disease has been largely wiped out in the civilized world. However, since the vaccine is known to make Moslem pee-pees shrink and renders females sterile, bookish, and unsubmissive it is not widely used by the turban and automatic weapons set... vaccinators in Swabi to the assault on a busload of women students and subsequent siege of Quetta's Bolan Medical College. These attacks show that religious bad turbans' targets are widespread and not limited to symbols of the state or security forces -- civilian non-combatants are equally fair game. By indulging in wanton violence the bully boyz are destroying the fabric of society.
Still, a state of denial regarding the bully boyz persists. Though PTI chief Imran Khan ... aka Taliban Khan, who is the lightweight's lightweight... condemned the Mardan bombing, other party leaders linked the attack to drone strikes. Believing such a theory will perhaps be a difficult task even for diehard PTI supporters. The PTI, as well as the PML-N, still believe in a negotiated settlement with religious bad turbans. They must make it clear how they will go about this. Who will they talk to and what will be the terms? Imran Khan's party in particular faces a moment of truth. It has already lost a provincial politician earlier this month when Fareed Khan was rubbed out in Hangu, also reportedly by myrmidons. Now, another politician linked to the party has lost his life. The PTI needs to come to terms with the bad turban threat and not offer far-fetched explanations that appear to justify myrmidon violence.
