Eye off the ball

Smash made me think today…

While a majority of the public is watching with anticipation the results of the Michael Jackson trial or worried about the fate of a lone teen missing while on vacation in Aruba. A little story has appeared in the press of a couple of California men arrested on charges of lying to federal agents

Hamid Hayat told federal agents he attended a jihadist training camp run by
al-Qaida in Pakistan for six months ending in 2004, where he went through
weapons and explosives training and was schooled in ideological anti-American
rhetoric, according to a federal criminal complaint filed in U.S. District Court
in Sacramento.

2004? It’s funny how fast attention slides and what matters more to the average guy on the street. I wonder what we’re going to do about these al-Qaida camps? I didn’t join back up to chase down Saddam, I want Bin Laden, not news of his death but a body to put on display. Even with us at war, this one person is responsible for more deaths then all the troops lost after 2 years in Iraq. Don’t forget that for a second.

Thanks Smash for the reminder.
