Titillated terrorists take a walk on the wild side

No, that's not a title that turned up on Osama's jihard drive (at least, not that we know of). It's just a fact. Osama wasn't even the first terrorist to get exposed for his private proclivities.

9-11 hijacker Mohammed Atta was known around the Florida strip club scene, throwing around dollar bills and whooping it up with the infidel babes in spiked heels and little else. Word is his favorite was a little dish by the name of Barbie Ganoush.

Anwar al-Awlaki, the radical cleric who inspired Maj. Nidal Hassan and is on a US terror hit list now, has his alternate radical side. The handsome devil has been busted a couple of times over the years for trolling not for hookahs, but for hookers.

Maj. Nidal Hassan himself was frequently on the prowl at Starz gentlemen's club in Killeen, TX before he shouted "Allahu ackbar!" and murdered more than a dozen US military and civilians on America's largest military installation. The manager of the place reports that Hassan was sheikhing his booty there three times in the month before the attack.

Larger significance of all this? Your guess is as good as mine. But by now there is enough of a pattern to all this that OBL's relevation isn't particularly revelatory.
