Muslems involved in the military's war on terror

Reader comment on item: The Guantánamo Arrests – What Do They Mean?

Submitted by Dennis Brown (United States), Oct 2, 2003 at 01:51

The threat posed by Muslem servicemen who subvert the military's war on terror should not be measured by comparing the number of Muslem military personnel either convicted or suspected of aiding the enemy with the overall number of Muslem military personel because most Muslim military personnel are not in a position to directly aid the enemy.

A more accurate analysis would be to compare the number of Muslem military personnel in sensitive positions who are either suspected or convicted of aiding the enemy to the overall number Muslim military personel in the same or similar positions. For instance, the number of Muslim translators suspected or convicted of aiding the enemy should be compared only to the overall number of Muslim translators. No doubt this would be far more accurate and alarming.
