To be or not to be... a terrorist

I have two issues with these types of stories.

1 - If a person can be pushed by the FBI (whatever) to go through all of this shit and do all the steps of "being a terrorist" then this person is so weak minded they should be allowed on the streets.

2 - Parents and friends always seem to say, "he was a quiet boy, he wouldn't hurt anyone". Bullshit.

(adding)

"that he prayed five times a day" wtf? Who cares. Obviously praying isn't very useful.

Yeah. I think that might be the case. They have done it previously why not continue doing it? After all they get paid.

One man's hero is another man's terrorist. The FBI and others are well known for rigging evidence. They have to catch a terrorist once in a while to prove the war on terrorism is working. If they can't find a terrorist now and then---they'll have to make one.

The only possible thing the world needs saving from are those running it.

I believe this to be true.
