The roots of terrorism

Posted By on Fri, Jun 5, 2009 at 6:11 AM

The NY Times, too, has talked to the lawyer for the man accused of killing a soldier outside a Little Rock recruiting center. Add an FBI agent to the list, along with Yemenis, for radicalizing Abdul-hakim Muhammad.

The lawyer, James E. Hensley Jr., asserted that the United States government had done nothing to free the man, Abdulhakim Mujahid Muhammad, 23, until his family, with the assistance of a Tennessee state legislator, intervened.

Mr. Hensley said an F.B.I. agent visited Mr. Muhammad in prison in Yemen, but only to tell him that the American government was watching him. “If you ever get out of this godforsaken place, we’ll hound you till the day you die,” Mr. Hensley asserted the agent said.

Alas, if true, they didn't hound him nearly enough.
