Submitted by Tammy Hall (United States), Jun 17, 2003 at 20:22

My brother was murdered by Hassan Akbar, and I want to know why this happened?

He has destroyed our lives; my brother was a good man. I don't know what to do, I want answers , details, pictures, anything. He killed my brother and I want to know why.

Daniel Pipes replies:

First, please accept my condolences for this horrid, senseless murder. Second, the "why" is the easy part. Sgt. Akbar's allegiances changed and he viewed his comrades-in-arms instead as his enemies.
