Comprehend the Horror
Useful Infidels

There was one (and only one) report of dancing in the streets in Pakistani neighborhoods in New Jersey immediately after the attacks on 9/11. No mention was made at later news briefs. Since then, I've never thought of Pakistan as an ally or friend.

My father worked in Saudi Arabia at the time and the atmosphere in his office was so jolly one would have thought that they had won the Soccer World Cup.

CNN did a report from Pakistan shortly after 9/11. A reporter was interviewing a child and asked him in Urdu, "How did you feel?"

"Happy," was his reply with a wide smile on his face.

It's not just Pakistanis. Muslims -- most of them -- were glad and are glad when Americans get murdered.
