"Everyone Has His Flaws." Terrorism Was This Guy's
The terror ring, created in prison via Saudi-funded programs, was on the verge of action when it was busted by a joint federal/local task force.
The jihadist who plead guilty today is Gregory Patterson, a 23-year-old college student. Patterson's attorney executed a spin session that would have dazzled a Sufi, as described in the OC Register:
[Patterson's] attorney, William McKesson, said his client was an easily impressionable youth who become involved with the terrorist group after he was "manipulated" and "abused" by [Levar Haley] Washington [who plead guilty last week].
Patterson – who lives in the South Bay, and took classes at El Camino College in Torrance and California State University, Northridge – was raised Christian but was studying Islam when he met Washington, who was a guest speaker at an Islamic center attended by Patterson, McKesson said.
"He led a typical middle-class lifestyle, he never was in trouble with the law,'' the attorney said. "But everyone has flaws, and his (flaw) was that he was a follower."
Yeah, that's all that's wrong with him; he's just a follower.
What sort of person becomes interested in Islam after 9/11, the Mohammed cartoons and teddy bears, the Daniel Pearl beheading, Ahmadinejad's declarations on the Holocaust and Israel, and the continuous news of Islam's misogyny?
Oh, just a typical, middle-class Christian kid, right?
He is a soldier of jihad, no different from any of the other crazies, really, who are nothing more than followers ... of Mohammed.
