In today’s Washington Post there is a piece entitled Former bin Laden bodyguard is among ex-guerrillas in Yemen. Here is an excerpt:
"SANAA, YEMEN — When he served in the Afghan mountains as Osama bin Laden’s bodyguard, Nasser al-Bahri said, he was known as "The Killer." Today, Bahri is a business consultant in Yemen who favors Western-style pinstriped shirts, crisp slacks and black loafers. But his ideas are still radical: Ask him whether jihadists should kill Americans on U.S. soil and he replies without hesitation, "America is a legitimate target."
We have not gotten very far in telling our side of the story to the Muslim world, have we? Or is it maybe that they simply are not listening? Is this worth the lives of American servicemen and women? I did not think so either.
