Cab Driver Gets 13 Years for Supporting Somali Terrorists
It was just yesterday that Democrats on the House Homeland Security Committee were complaining that hearings into homegrown terror were Islamophobic and that there really is no homegrown terror problem.
I wanted to say something like facts are like cryptonite to the stupid, but that just isn't true. One can believe all sorts of fantastical ideas in the face of overwhelming evidence. For instance, the Congressional hearing on a homegrown terror support came on the same day this happened: Former cab driver gets 13 years for supporting al Shabaab.
We also saw this week Nidal Hasan banned from his own court martial hearing because he won't shave his beard. The guy who murdered 13 of his fellow servicemen thinks that Islam demands the beard. And the killing.
But there's no homegrown terror problem and I'm banning myself for being an Islamophobe.
