Americans are interrogating......"Americans"...?

The line up: Tommy Smith, Doug Winters, Johnny Gordon, Wayne Caruthers and Bill Kidd... oh, wait, those aren't their names, ARE THEY!! :-)
Here are the AMERICANS that have been called terrorists............Odd the media doesn't say "Pakistani Americans or Iraqi Americans". And, YES, I KNOW, I'm the one who's always bemoaning that we've become too HYPHENATED an America............but for THIS situation, when they use hyphens so much, why not now?

"The five men, students in their 20s from northern Virginia, were detained this week in the city of Sargodha in Punjab province, 190 km (120 miles) southeast of the Pakistani capital, Islamabad." At least the article does add "American MUSLIMS"..that's something. "MUSLIMS? Are you KIDDING ME? They'd be TERRORISTS? Oh, tie me DOWN. :-)"

Ya, they look like they're from Northern Virginia, don't they? :-)

JUST SAW THIS INFORMATION: A Muslim American father with Pakistani nationality turned the five in because his son was one of them and he didn't want them fighting American troops in Afghanistan. Nice. We need more like him.

Good for Dad.

Z said...

I thought so, too, sue. Definitely good. And good for America. And good for muslims.

Of course, the imam at the American mosque that Zamzam attended is saying what a normal fellow he was.

And his definition of "normal" is?

Linda said...

IMHO they should be brought back to America and put on trial. Maybe that is what is going to happen, and I've missed that part of the story.

Z said...

Always, the family of Hasan at Ft Hood said there was NO WAY he was radicalized and he'd NEVER do anything like that. typical, I guess.

Linda...I don't know the decision on these guys yet...maybe they'll take THEM to NYC, too..God forbid

Chuck said...

None of these guys seem to be radicalized.

Bloviating Zeppelin said...

Yes. We need more like that man, and more like Ted Kaczynski's brother as well.

Let's see: African-American...OK; Native American...OK; Japanese-American...OK; but let's not...no never...never refer to Pakistani-Americans or Iraqi-Americans. No, no, no. That would be prejudicial.

Why they look like they could be my bomb-making, jihad loving boys from next door.

Probably the biggest risk we run is this type of thing. These individuals get training in Pakistan ,come back here, and we're off to the races. People tend to forget, in the mad desire to show how all encompassing our culture is, that the bombings in the London subway system were perpetrated by the home grown variety of muslim.

Z said...

Joe..EXXXXXACTLY my point..well put.!

Hermit, it's probably the government's biggest worry...next to making sure Obama still looks good, of course. :-)

Ducky's here said...

So they use Facebook to hook up with radical groups in Pakistan. Guess they hadn't taken the "low profile" course yet.

What worries me is that the "A" Team may be out there and all we come up with is these morons.

Ducky's here said...

Let's see: African-American...OK;

------------------------

Right Joe, and I bet you were right there with the bed wetters when the Panthers were making waves.

Please, stop.

Z said...

ducky, you want to ignore the morons with plans like they apparently had in the meantime, or..?
are you a Black Panthers fan?

Ducky's here said...

Am I a fan of the Panther's. Not really, but I'm not a fan of those who think there hasn't been a violent element in every group Joe names.

Just putting things in an historic prospective.

... and as I said, these five morons are not the "A" Team. So don't let the apprehension of these "dangerous" teenage dimbulbs get us off target.

Z said...

Ducky, we still have to apprehend these thugs. Your comments sound like "move on, no story here"...not even close
