And These Guys May Not Quite Be So Bad Either

Well, the government officials naturally would have a tendency to boast about every important terror related arrest. In the US after 9/11 that is to be expected. What we, the public, must remember though is that "arrested in connection with" is not synonymous to "found guilty of".

Apparently, the case of a terror cell in Detroit whose arrest was recently touted as a major success in the war on terror is falling apart. As I've already noted, so seems to be the case of Yaser Esam Hamdi who was captured in Afghanistan while allegedly fighting with the Taliban.

In short, not all the guys who get locked up are bad. Nor, of course, do all the bad guys get locked up.
