Roger that

Reader comment on item: The Enemy Within [and the Need for Profiling]

Submitted by Irving Weinsoff (United States), Jan 24, 2003 at 09:44

You are very precise about your event recognition, but this is only the tip of the iceburg. One problem we have is that the judicial system takes so long to make decisions about not only the Islamists, but almost every step in the process. The judges take weeks and months to render decisions on almost every topic from simple motions to jury selection to punishment. It's almost as if judges take no interest in trials and have to review testimony and law after trials and before trials. You would expect these judges to anticipate punishment during trial.

Thousands of Islamists have probably left the country or concealed themselves within Muslim communities to await instructions.
What's really troubling is that African-American US. citizens are often recruited into the Muslim community for terrorist activities. Many of them are solicited in jails and prisons or gangs after being offered money and drugs etc. The American people, I'm afraid, fail to face the reality of treason and glamour of being in a couple levels higher than street gangs with hopes of becoming leaders.
Keep up the fine work you are doing and I'm sure this will bring people around in the long run.
