I was a little aggravated when I read it but then you have to really reach deep down and admit that, yes, we have a lot of ignorant people in this country.

Bad Americans...Good Iraqis.
Americans are ignorant, stupid, hostage taking thugs.
We get it.

Maybe you should ask Alhassan if his mother or sister was ever sent to a rape room by the former leader? Does Alhassan wish his former leader were still alive and in power?

Forgive me for not getting gushy over this article.

BTW...isn't Skype an American company formed on American ingenuity? Isn't Microsoft? I'm not sure how such an ignorant country can survive without folks like Alhassan letting us know just how bad we really are.

He's right we are ignorant, we keep making laws protecting people like him, while hurting ourselves, like, we can't waterboard but, they can cut our freakin heads off. Now the city of Brookline, wants to make a law where illegals can vote, sounds like a plan to me. As for Alhassin I've got a good idea, why don't you and your friends go take flying lessons and you can fly a jet into some buildings, if anyone tries to stop you tell them you rights are being violated.
