Isn't Beck a mormon? I suppose that shouldn't matter if he's telling the truth but it makes me wonder the credibility of the sources he stands on to make such statements.
About their father's excuse that they were set up: Random citizens don't just get plucked out of nowhere and "set up." These boys whether or not they were "set up" they must have still been involved in some shit somewhere. Not to say they are the ultimate masterminds behind the plot, (we'll see...) but their hands aren't clean from fault, IMO.
Isn't all this talk just adding fuel to the conspiranut's fire? This is giving them the memetic oxygen they crave. The best thing to do is nod and laugh and slowly walk away.
I just saw a yayhole on CNN with his formula for preventing future Islamic terror attacks. He said that we get homegrown terrorists because we don't make Muslims feel welcome here in the United States.
Now, it seems to me that the terror attacks we've known have done so for religious reasons, not social ones. They feel they need to kill Americans in an attempt to151as they put it—defend Islam, when apparently all you have to do to offend Islam is to be non-Muslim.
The terrorists, for the most part, seem to come from a philosophy according to which Islam cannot coexist with any society not structured according to sharia law.
