Which should have been done on 9/12 on every Moslem population center.
Obama won’t do that. Unless he takes a hit in the polls over this he’ll let it slide. So make a fuss when the beheading video hits youtube and hope it springs him into action or wait until 2013 for vengeance.

Aafia’s trial was a circus. She should have been tried in a military venue and executed immediately.

Wow, you can just smell the hypocrisy.
Thank you for the ping Velveeta.
While in custody, on July 18, 2008, prosecutors said, Ms. Siddiqui grabbed an M4 rifle from a police station floor and fired on Army officers and F.B.I. agents. She was shot in the abdomen.
I think I see the problem.

Prayers for this soldier. I am sickened to realize that this young man’s life may soon end brutally. Living in Idaho near his hometown makes it feel more personal to me. May God strengthen & redeem him.
