The Justice Department’s decision to try Khalid Shaikh Mohammed, the self-proclaimed mastermind of the 9/11 attacks, in a federal court in New York City has elicited several criticisms. Most are pointless, but one — the idea that it will give a terrorist a platform from which he could stir up support in the Muslim world for his radical views — is well taken.
Yes, there are many more sides to this battle than former president Bush is letting on, and many more than the news media is aware of or suspects. The World Trade Center bombings, the real mastermind of this plot was not he, no matter who they used to carry it out. He's capable of using the Arabs as the scapegoats but of drawing the Israelis in as well, playing both sides against the other and against the U.S. at different times to suit his shifting purposes. It's a tangled web he weaves!
Your politicians and rulers from the greatest to the least have become perverse and are the tools of rich men, whose policies are bought and sold in secret deals and whose sins are manifest before all. The pursuit of wealth and worldly riches, at the neglect of others in the world, or even to the neglect of your own soul.
