Lone Nut, My Ass!

Remember the mall bomber from right before Christmas, just another, “lone nut”:

Rockford Register Star

ROCKFORD — The man accused of wanting to kill holiday shoppers at CherryVale Mall has been linked to a man who allegedly supplied classified military information to London-based terrorists.

And authorities have used some statements made by alleged bomb-plotter Derrick Shareef to build their case against Hassan Abujihaad, who they say was the source of the leaked information.

According to a U.S. Justice Department affidavit,Abujihaad, who was arrested Wednesday, and Shareef were roommates in Arizona in 2004. (emphasis added)

Lone nut, right, and in WWII every spy or saboteur was a lone nut too, right? Every member of the French Underground were treated by the Germans as deranged followers of the Brie and Chardonnay club too! What fools we have become.

Update: I couldn't find any pic's of Derrick Shareef, but here is the AP's artist sketch.
