That actually reminds me a little bit of the situation with the guy (Bates?) over in Afghanistan who supposedly got drunk and slaughtered a bunch of civilians. I think he pleaded guilty in return for a lighter sentence but the set-up stunk, with his defender not being able to get at critical evidence and the stories not lining up (including witnesses who said there were TWO perps involved). He didn’t remember anything. I wonder if the drug interacts with alcohol, or if it can be taken with alcohol so that the person could be framed as being drunk.

There has long been a debate about which drugs were used by The Old Man of the Mountain, some say marihuana, some maintain it was opium, but the use of drugs to ‘cast a spell’ upon those who would be useful ‘assassins’ is an ancient practice:

And they came to Alamoot, the fortess of Senex de Monte, the Old Man of the Mountain, the King of the Assassins, the greatest wizard of all time. . .

Now this is the tale of the Old Man the Mountain.

Whenever within his dominions there was a fine young horseman, the Old Man would put a spell on him and draw him to the Castle of Alamoot, and outside of the castle sleep would come on him. And when he woke up, he would be inside the castle, in the wonderful gardens. And they’d tell him he was dead and in paradise. And paradise it would be for him what with the lovely women and the great playing on the flutes, the birds singing, and the sun shining, the crystal rivers and the flowers of the world. And after a while the Old Man of the Mountain would call for him, and tell him he was sending him back on earth again on a mission to punish Such-and-Such. And the Old Man would put sleep on him and a knife in his hand, and when he woke he would be outside the Castle of Alamoot. And he would start on his mission. And when he came back he would be readmitted to paradise. And if he didn’t come back, there were others to take his place.

The Old Man of the Mountain always kept one hundred and one assassins and four hundred and four women to tend them.

The man who shot up an Aurora, Colo., movie theater during a screening of “The Dark Knight Rises” last summer has reportedly converted to Islam and prays up to five times a day.

A prison source say the beard James Holmes sported in court last months represents his new-found faith. The source said Mr. Holmes has turned Muslim as a way of justifying his horrific crimes on July 20 which left 12 people dead and 58 people wounded, the Daily Mail reports.

“He has brainwashed himself into believing he was on his own personal jihad and that his victims were infidels,”

HAIR DYE

“The scholars have all unanimously agreed that it is a Sunnah for men to dye the hair of their head and beard with red colour. It is also considered a sign for Muslims”
