We here a lot about the "Islamic fundamentalists" who are a worse enemy that the Soviets ever were. The Soviet Union and to some extent China engaged the US through proxy battles such as the war in Vietnam and Korea. There was spying. They helped the Rosenbergs and Aldrich Ames set up shop. They did a lot of damage. But it was soldier vs. soldier and spy vs. spy.
The World Trade Center attack was an act of war. It was far worse than Pearl Harbor, which was a military target. The 9/11 attack was a deliberate act against civilians, timed to hit as many unarmed civilians as possible. It was not a regular criminal act. That is why Guantanamo is being used to try those who stand accused of masterminding this attack.
What happened last time 9/11 suspects were in New York City? Ask Louis Pepe, who suffered severe brain damage and complete blindness as a result of an attack by a gang of 9/11 suspects.
Fox News reported as follows on the cowardly attack.
"Pepe told FoxNews.com he worries that sending Mohammed and four of his alleged fellow 9/11 conspirators to New York could compromise the safety of the guards at the MCC prison. Keeping the prisoners in one location, he said, was especially dangerous.
"Could you imagine over there what they're gonna do, God forbid?" asked Pepe, now 52, who lost feeling in the right side of his body and most of his ability to speak. "After all these years, you'd think they should know."
On Nov. 1, 2000, Pepe was ambushed in the cell of Mamdouh Mahmud Salim — an alleged top aide to Usama bin Laden. Salim's cellmate, another Al Qaeda suspect, joined in the attack, which prosecutors say was an attempt to steal Pepe's keys to the cell block to free other prisoners and take hostages.
"They wanted to discredit the badge and what he stood for," Eileen Trotta told FoxNews.com. "After they plunged him in the eye with that makeshift knife, they did the sign of the cross on his chest."
Why were these individuals housed together? Why were they allowed to form a gang in prison, to store hot sauce in their cell, which they turned into the makeshift mace that they used on Louis Pepe?These are individuals who wrap themselves in the pages of the Koran and find justification for attempting to gang rape a man. This is what we are up against. We are up against an enemy that allows any abomination when it is done to an "infidel". This is the wonderful faith to which they wish to convert us.
Governor Patterson expressed the anger and frustration of many New Yorkers who dread the prospect of a long trial in the shadow of the World Trade Center ruins. Alheadlinenews reports as follows on Governor Patterson's remarks.
"This is not a decision that I would have made," the governor told reporters. "Terrorism isn't just attack, it's anxiety, and I think you feel the anxiety and frustration of New Yorkers who took the bullet for the rest of the country."
"We're still having trouble getting over it; we still have been unable to rebuild that site," he added, referring to the World Trade Center site. "And having those terrorists tried so close to the attack is going to be an encumbrance on all New Yorkers."
"Right up until three days before his bloody rampage, Hasan had repeatedly badgered his higher-ups, telling them that the shell-shocked soldiers under his care had confessed to "war crimes" and that they deserved prosecution, ABC News reported.
"The Army may not want to admit it, and you may not hear much about, but it was very big for him," one federal investigator said.
Col. Anthony Febbo, Hasan's superior, told investigators that, on Nov. 2, the troubled psychiatrist contacted him twice to discuss whether he could legally turn over evidence of what he called "war crimes" learned during his counseling sessions with war vets.
Hasan made a similar request in late October. And Hasan's direct supervisor, Capt. Naomi Surman, head of Fort Hood's Department of Psychiatry, said he raised similar questions in October, as well."
This is a man whose religion did not stop him from killing. This was a man who was a regular at the strip club near his military base. We are dealing with "cafeteria Muslims" who take the commandments they like, leave behuind the rest and dress up in devout looking clothing to wow the credulous infidels.
We are not at war like we were with the Soviets. This one is up close and personal. Every man, woman and child is fair game, if they are "infidels". Any Koranic law can be cast aside to demean and degrade us. Even adultery with a non Muslim woman can be committed with impunity. Although homosexuality is prohibited, raping a non Muslim prison guard is OK.
The American people seem to have a sense of righteous indignation when it comes to terrorists and terrorism. What about our government? There seems to be massive amnesia and blindness when it comes to the threat of Islamofascism. It may well be that the majority of those who call themselves Muslim are willing to abide by our nations laws. But millions abroad and many within our borders will stop at nothing to destroy us. Pretending this is not so will not protect us.
