We wrote here about the arrest of Houssein Zorkot, a third-year medical student who was apprehended in Dearborn, Michigan, with a loaded AK-47 and his face covered with camouflage paint. Zorkot maintained an Islamist web site on which he proclaimed his admiration for Hezbollah.
Today, the local newspaper in Dearborn reported that a laptop seized from Zorkot's home is being examined for any evidence of connections with terrorist groups. It also contains a fuller description of the circumstances of Zorkot's arrest than was published earlier this week.
Zorkot's arrest has gone virtually unreported. A Google News search indicates that it has been covered in the local Dearborn and Detroit newspapers. Fox News picked up the story within the last 24 hours. Beyond that, it has been reported only by Newsbusters, Spero News, the Christian Broadcasting Network and Power Line and a handful of other web sites that, for some reason, don't show up on Google News.
This is not technically a “Domestic” Terrorist in training scenario, yaknow ! He was just out to bag a buck or sumthin’ ..
Glenn Beck’s been talking about the jihadi “Perfect Day”. I think this a$$hole was going to carry out his part. I’d like to know more about his arrest. I know they had to taze him.
To paraphrase Shakespeare:
"I say we kill all the editors."
And I halfway mean it.
If that scrares you - his web site will terrify you.
Did you know that in Iran, after the fall of the Shah, marriage age for women was dropped from 18 to nine years old, and that's the law there today. At least, so says my husband who saw it on, of all things, a PBS special.
Wonder why Katie and Matt and other weighty journalists (*ack*) don't address that in their interviews with newsworthy figures from the Middle East: "Tell me, do you condone and support the continuation of laws that allow men to marry 9-year-old girls?"
A third-year medical student-shouldn’t he be on call in a hospital somewhere?;)
One has to wonder what more qualified applicant was turned down from Wayne State Medical School to let in this guy. They used to have a Psych Committee evaluate applicants in most Medical Schools. The least little neurosis and poof! they were out. And in the 70s, thousands of qualified applicants were turned down, many for PC reasons.
That's stupid. Don't know if I've ever had a non-neurotic doctor, and most have been good. Obessive-compulsiveness is a neurotic disorder, and yet in moderation, it is an excellent quality for a physician to have.
Remember, we are fighting them there so we don’t have to fight them here.
Perhaps for diversity’s sake, they wanted to reject neurotics to make more room for psychotics.

An acquaintance of mine got his MD from UCLA Medical School.
He said that for a few of his classmates, he was certain that they
must have gained admission by virtue of some amazing “life story”.
In a similar way that Rigoberta Menchu got her Noble Prize.
(by constructing a whopper of a fib).
Supposedly, diversity of the student body was the reason for the creation of the allopathic Michigan State University medical school. As I recall, the allopathic school doesn’t exist anymore, only the osteopathic school. I guess Wayne State took up the cause.
