My congratulations to the Obama administration

They successfully have obtained a guilty plea from Osama bin Laden's chef. Who, presumably, pled guilty to providing Compote of Mass Destruction.

  1. Here's another article about this guy with a different picture entirely:

  2. I guilty of enjoying this heat wave.

  3. What was he charged with? failure to poison the food while he had a chance?

    The desperation with which our gummint seeks a "victory in the war on terra" is beginning to annoy me...

  4. Well, Steve, he was charged with "material support of terrorism", despite the fact that he himself has never been accused of any terrorist act. He also served as bin Laden's bodyguard and did a tour of duty in Chechnya, so he wasn't *solely* bin Laden's chef, it was simply his primary duty when bin Laden was not traveling.

    The "material support" charge is one which can be levied against any of us, since the U.S. Supreme Court has ruled that the State Department can at any time rule that any organization is a terrorist organization without any oversight from the courts. Are you a member of the ACLU, or have you ever been a member of the ACLU? The ACLU has defended accused terrorists in court. That makes you a material supporter of terrorism. Just ask Lynne Stewart about that -- defending a terror suspect is material support, didn't you know?

    I have just one question: Do you feel more free now?
