United States Marine Corps: “We’re looking for a few good men.”
al-Qaeda Terrorist Network: “We’ll take anybody.”
Suspected dirtybomber Jose Padilla’s rap sheet, before he converted to Islam and decided to bomb and poison his countrymen as Abdullah al Muhajir, included:
Chicago gang member
Florida assault conviction
Murder conviction, age 13
