in response to reader comment: Anything but a Hero

Walid Shoebat by his own words claims that he was a terrorist . If that's the case he should be put on trial and sent to jail for the crimes he commited like all other terrorists. Why is walking free now? how come our goverment isn't doing anything about it. Why is he taking advantage of 9/11 and other terrorist attacks that have occured and are still occuring now by giving interviews and making money selling his books? I urge anyone who's reading this message and has the power to take action to prosecute this guy for what he did. He doesn't derserve to live among us.

Once a terrorist always a terrorist.

Daniel Pipes replies:

He uses the term "terrorist" somewhat metaphorically, in that he was intending to carry out a terrorist operation but never did.

Therefore, there is no need to arrest him.
