Wait, an IMAM aided Taliban? That's Unpossible!

I'm so confused:

A 78-year-old south Florida imam was sentenced to 25 years in prison by a judge on Friday for funneling more than $50,000 to the Pakistani Taliban....

A U.S. citizen born in Pakistan, Khan was the imam at the Flagler Mosque, one of Miami's oldest mosques. He was arrested in 2011 along with two of his sons.

Prosecutors said Khan sent money to family and friends in Pakistan between 2008 and 2010 that was funneled to the Taliban, which they say used some of the funds to buy weapons.

And the best part:
Hafiz Kahn was convicted in March on four counts of providing money and support to the group, which the United States considers a terrorist organization.
You see, people who blow up little girls for the crime of going to school aren't objectively terrorists. It's just that the US considers them terrorists.

Who needs al Jazeera when you have Reuters?

Thanks to Lou
