This person has been alive and dying for years since he was released on "humanitarian reasons" after being convicted of mass murder.

Just thought I would drop this in to show how laws work.

As frustrating as it is to think that either this guy managed to falsify an illness, or to have been lucky enough to be one of a tiny percentile who do go into remission for seemingly no reason at all; I would offer the following as a reason for celebration:

Our laws saw it fit to show mercy and human decency to someone who showed neither in his crime.

Any time that our society soars above the moral levels of terrorism and acts with compassion, we should feel very good about it.

It has been said there would have been possible economic consequences if he had not been sent home.

He was released on compassionate grounds,and allowed home to die based on the medical report. Now that he is in remission why don't they just send them back to prison.

Surely, this was a coordinated and well-executed plan that is only made possible with big time backing. And I feel for the loved ones of the 270 innocent people who died.

Cord, while that's all well and good and may put us above people like that, it does nothing to discourage further actions like that. Such people usually are thankful for the chance to act again. You'd be amazed how many insurgents in both Iraq and Afghanistan have been caught, given medical attention, fed, kept and qustioend a short time and then released (suually because the governments supposed to be helping us were cousins of them or somethign similar) only to have them continue making attacks and gettign caught repeatedly. Kill them and they stop. It's cold but true.

And if you kill them, then they become martyrs, and their sons and friends are inspired to continue.

Al Magrhri was in jail at the time of 9/11 and the London Bombings. His incarceration prevented nothing.

We have now been in the middle east for longer than it took to free the entire globe of the Nazi's, and there is no sign of a 'victory' whatever that means.
Its a part of the world that doesnt want our culture, our beliefs, or our idea of what is 'right'. And quite frankly, why should they? Its not like we have all the answers is it?
I just think we need to take a different approach to the problem - and I was pro the invasion for many years.

But that doesnt make any sense, because it was pretty obvious that should Maghri magically not die of terminal cancer, then the whole thing would blow up in public. That is a crap conspiracy wink

and I dont think the USA should shout too loudly about this sort of thing, since they kinda invented intel about Saddam having links to Al Quieda, and helped create imaginary wmd's so they could strong-arm the UN into a completely illegal invasion of Iraq.

Thats one hell of a glass house to be throwing conspiracy stones from wink

You would think that nobody was fighting terrorism until 9/11. UK has been fighting terrorists on our front doorstep for 40 years, but Americans called them 'rebel's' and donated millions to their 'cause'. whistle
