A New Terrorist Threat?

Pakistanis are hunting Abdullah Mehsud, one of the most wanted and dangerous militants. Mehsud is Taliban commander with ties to al-Qaida. Where did he come from? See if you can guess. He was being held by the U.S. at Guantanamo for two years. Yes, that's right, a former Guantanamo detainee has turned to terrorism.
Experts say it's possible Mehsud was always a hardcore militant and deceived his captors.

"The other possibility is that the two years in captivity was itself a radicalizing experience," says terrorism expert Brian Jenkins.

A defiant Mehsud now claims he's avenging cruelty against Muslims. He vows to fight to the death against Americans and Pakistanis under American influence.
Oh great. Just what we need in this world, more terrorists. Howard Dean was right. We are no safer with Saddam out of power. John Kerry is right. Bush's disasterous handling of Afganistan and Iraq is creating more terrorist. The concentration camp at Guantanamo is actually creating terrorists.

Can we please fire this guy and elect someone with some brains who understands war.
