Faster, Please!

Maybe if they Look and Talk like Americans...

Remember the kidnapping and subsequent murder of five Americans in Najaf not so long ago? Everyone was impressed that the terrorists had found blond guys to looked and sounded like Americans to beat the security system at an Iraqi stronghold. I kept asking myself, well, what if they were really Americans?

So this little note from the Houston Chronicle caught my eye:

A former Houston resident has been arrested and charged with training to fight jihad with al-Qaida forces in Somalia.

Americans are being recruited, trained, and sent into action all over the world.
