Mr. Pipes,

First, congratulations on your appointment by the President. It was a very smart and gutsy thing to do.

Secondly, I appreciate the newsletter. It certaintly keeps me informed.

My question; I just watched Fox 5 news (New York) where Mary Garofalo did a story on several of the 9/11 terrorists were caught on video at a NJ go-go bar drinking alcohol and receiving lap dances. One of the terrorists paid for many lap dances and one was thrown out of the bar for groping the dancer. How do you explain religious fanatics like these fellows engaging in such behavior? Isn't this type of behavior one of the reasons why these guys don't like America in the first place?
