White House Press Release:
“It was not a religion that attacked us that September day. It was Al-Qaeda, a sorry band of men, which perverts religion.”
Looks like the “sorry band of men” still hold the once-mighty USA to ransom, after 9 years of feverishly diverting attention away from islam and muslims….

U.S. Has ‘No Strategy’ to Confront Homegrown Terror, Security Group Warns
The government has failed to anticipate the danger from homegrown terrorists, some of whom immigrated to the United States, and now faces the most complex set of threats since the Sept. 11 attacks, analysts on an organization headed by the two 9/11 Commission co-chairmen warned Friday.
Unveiling a new report a day before the nation marks nine years since the 2001 attacks, members of the National Security Preparedness Group saidÂ Al Qaeda and other terror groups are increasingly turning to U.S. citizens to carry out attacks on the United States. They cited examples where recruiters went after Somali populations and other groups living in the United States, saying that while the U.S. at one time may have thought its cultural “melting pot” would provide a “firewall” against radicalization from within, that assumption turned out to be false.
“The United States has failed to fundamentally understand and prepare for these threats,” group member Bruce Hoffman said. “Terrorists may have found our Achilles’ heel. We have no strategy to deal with this growing problem and emerging threat.” (Fox has more)
Speaking of Ransom:
(Reuters) – U.S. President Hussein Obama on Tuesday welcomedÂ Iran‘s release of American hiker Sarah Shourd and said he remained hopeful that Tehran would demonstrate “renewed compassion” by freeing two other Americans.
Stockholm Syndrome: American woman freed by Iran is grateful, humbled
Interesting to see Iran treated with kid gloves after they kidnap three hikers, psycho- torture the families, and allow one to be ransomed, further tormenting remaining victim’s families. All this is about as civilized as Pol Pot. Obama’s new dialog thing is working out for us.
