    Curious. How can someone be one of "us" when he self-describes as one of "them"?

    Hehe. A religious attack, I think they mean. Ah well.

    Rare for them. I suppose their indignation will last...for a while, anyway.

    I think it's interesting that the word "terrorism" has come to mean "a religiously inspired act of violence by someone of Middle Eastern descent".

    When it is a Christian - if it is called Terrorism at all, it is qualified as "Christian Terrorism" or "Religious Terrorism".
    When it is Muslim, it's just plain "Terrorism" - the "Muslim" is understood.

    Did anybody see South Park last night? Brilliant episode, I have to say. One of the best political commentary episodes since the Walmart episode. In it, there is a tongue in cheek debate about the changing definition of the word "Fag". Terrorism, it would appear, is subject to the same forces.

    Mod Edit (hypewaders): I just wanted to stick in a link in for that episode. I just watched it meself. Laughs should be appreciated today. Here from the source:

    I'll have to watch it at home - the corporation thinks watching such things will waste my time and warp my mind.

    It probably will. But you gotta' do the things that bring joy to your life, even if they can be harmful.

    Curious indeed- But I expect national curiosity about this question will receive a swift closed-casket funeral with less than full honors.

    The jihadi blogs will be crowing victory about this one, I'm sure. Which raises other questions.

    GeoffP: "The jihadi blogs will be crowing victory about this one, I'm sure."

    Absolutely. This is one of the many things that have me pissed off about this whole situation.

    "Which raises other questions."

    Conveniently, these other questions will titillate the audience until the discomfort of a glimpse of the deeper aspects is forgotten; America can get back to externalizing what we're fighting a war against. Hassan was trying to turn his patients against the War Effort; Hassan was always our enemy, and his deployment was about to expose him; he's one of Them, not one of Us; no nutter hajji psychologist is gonna mess with the American Dream.

    He's a citizen. Even when he acts like somebody else, we cannot easily label him as something "alien". We are all aliens and people need to start seeing it that way.

    It's true, but the admission would end our wars.
