Most of us know, when you're being questioned by the police, don't grab a weapon and go after them; if you do, you're likely to get shot. Ibragim Todashev never got the memo.

My Answer : What proof do you have to support your case ? The father of Mr. Todashev has made a complaint against the FBI for murdering his son in cold-blood and has presented photos as well as the testimonies of his neighbors which support his viewpoint. So what is your proof that he grabbed a weapon ?

What is your proof that he was not killed because of either his faith or his skin color ?

That idiot John Walker Lindh was taken prisoner off the battlefield, along with hundreds of other Muslims, mostly Arabs. Lindh is still in prison. Most of the Arabs have been released and have returned to jihad.

What is your proof that most of the Arabs have been released and have returned to Jihad ??? Were you part of the process ??

Pastor Saeed Abedini was thrown in prison by a despotic Islamic government (the system you put your money on) for the crime of being a Christian.

What is the proof to support your argument ? What is the proof that this man was not an agent of CIA and Mossad ?

Dr. Afridi got quite a sentence for such a petty criminal. 33 years.

This man Afridi was involved in corruption in the government-hospital where he was working in. He used government money to purchase medical equipments from the Pakistani government and then sold these equipments to the private contractors without putting them into intended use in his hosptial.

Now I do not know whether these practices are considered as corruption or legtimate business practices in the US but in much of the civilized world they are considered as corruption.

When you are involved in medical profession and perform such misdeeds then you are liable to be punished.

But, what the hey, she surely may not have ever proved to be as influential in changing history as much as Snowden or Assange or Manning, so it's OK, let's not be considered about such a petty criminal.

Can you please tell me of the contributions of some of these shadowy people like Abedini , Afridi or any other Tom Dick Harry that you name.

Can these contributions be any way comparable to the epoch shattering contributions that someone like Assange , Manning or Snowden has made ?

By the way it is interesting for people like you to show concerns for someone like Abedini. So where were your concerns when someone like Rachel Corrie or Furqan Dogan (both Americans ; one white and another non-white) were murdered in the cold blood ?

Islamic republic is at least this much merciful that guy Abedini (and that guy Afirdi) is alive and well. Rachel corrie and Furqan Dogan were not so lucky. So why you are silent when these two were murdered for their beliefs ?

That is hypocrisy Mr. Jeff.
