    What's really surprising is that her boyfriend had no idea what she was planning...apparently didn't even know she was Muslim.

    We need a new Joe McCarthy to deal with these threats to World Security.

    Hang her for treason. Just like those other jack***** that joined AQ. She isn't worth the rope to hang her.

    Looks like a man to me

    :rofl: that killed me.

    Reading the story and seeing that picture though... she'd fit right in with the rest of society... pretty much anywhere in the world. Kinda creepy, hopefully this is just an isolated incident.

    I think you are just not understanding the issue. Isolating/prosecuting the criminals/terrorists doesn't solve the problem.

    What do you mean? I wasn't speaking at all about isolating/prosecuting the criminals/terrorist. I'm saying I hope that the problem itself is an isolated event... as in hopefully just this lady has been talked into doing such deeds and there are not others like her.

    Probably just another maladjusted / angry / disturbed person for who saw this particular 'cause' as their outlet. The overall numbers that end up in the news (like Adam Gadahn and Jihad Jane) seem to be small, but I wonder if some of the more 'traditional' US-based outfits (mostly extremest militia / supermacist movements, various cults, more exotic movements like the Symbionese Army, etc.) that recruit these types have seen their numbers fall off recently?

    I was once arguing against racial profiling with a colleague of mine. His was for it and his biggest argument was that "a blonde bimbo ain't exactly going blow up a building".

    I don't know about this blonde's sexual indiscretions, but she kind of almost did blow up a building...

    I hope this incident convinces people that racial profiling is an unnecessary evil.

    There will always be outliers.
