I wondered how long it would take for the Left to start blaming Bush for the Christmas Bomber. And it didn't take long.
One of the four leaders allegedly behind the al Qaeda plot to blow up a Northwest Airlines passenger jet over Detroit was released by the U.S. from the Guantanamo prison in November 2007, according to American officials and Department of Defense documents. Al Qaeda claimed responsibility for the Northwest bombing in a Monday statement that vowed more attacks on Americans.
American officials agreed to send the terrorist from Guantanamo to Saudi Arabia, where he entered into an "art therapy rehabilitation program" and was set free, according to U.S. and Saudi officials.

The screeds are two pronged. First that innocent sweeties have been radicalized by unjust imprisonment and secondly, Bush let the bad ones go along with the ex-sweeties.
Yeah, I know. You couldn't make this sh*t up but remember you are talking Lefties here, all of them suffering from Bush Derangement Syndrome made worse by the many failures of their demi-god, Obamie The Bower.
And when you ask them why they were just a few weeks ago screaming for us to release more they become angry and nasty.
But I have to admit that early on I was sure we could beat al-Qaeda with sex, drugs, rock 'n roll and skin tight blue jeans... I mean, who could think of jihad when sweet thing strolled by with that oh so nice roll of her hips? Problem is we haven't figured out how to get the blue jeans to the girls, much less the girls in the jeans.. and since failing to "just say no" doesn't mean special classes for pregnant students but stoning...
Well, that strategy isn't working out too well.
I also thought that the base problem was poverty. Give'em food, clothes and a way out and jihad would be a thing of the past.
And I was partly right but mostly wrong. Oh, the great unwashed will riot when called to do so by their radical Imams and kill their daughters for not wanting to marry their 70 year old cousin back home, but the real problems have not come from the Arab Street. The problems have come from the supposedly educated children of the middle and upper class. Check it out. The Christmas Bomber was a child of luxury. Look at the English and Scotland bombers. All middle class, most born in England. Major Hasan was born in the USA well educated and a Doctor. Then there was the university professor in FL who was tried and finally deported. The UNC student who decided to drive his car through groups of his fellow students. And just recently, the university student who killed his professor... and yes, members of the 9/11 terrorist team... and I am sure I have missed some.
I think that many young people are born with a desire to serve. To be members of a greater cause. To be a member of a special group.
We see it in high school cliches and sports, university sororities, joining the armed services and yes, juvenile gangs of thugs.
And never having been asked to sacrifice, sacrifice itself becomes the goal. We saw it in the 60's in hippy communes and groups composed mostly of middle and upper class kids. And we saw it later in the Kool Aid Massacre and in Waco.
And we are seeing it now in the attacks by the Muslim children of wealth and those born in the USA.
Simply put, the problem is that the radicals have turned wealth and privilege into an evil spectre. Recognizing they have done nothing except being born into wealth and privilege and not seeing the extremists shut down by their closed society they become easy targets.
The fact is that they are not being assimilated into western culture. Neither here, England or Europe.
And this is were the saying gets difficult. We have no choices. We must insure by whatever means necessary that in the US they assimilate or are tossed back to where they came from. And if the rest of western civilization doesn't follow our lead then we must get ready for a very long and very nasty war.
