I read the letter of Noman Benotman from a link at Harry's Place. Had the folks in CAIR
displayed the frankness and candor of this correspondence the American Muslim community
would not be describing an atmosphere of hate.
The letter written is from a former fighter who spent time with Bin Ladden in Sudan and Afhanistan. It hits some of the same themes that the CIP has been saying for years
unequivocally. Terrorism hurts Islam far worse than bigots ever could.
What is perhaps more shocking is that Mullah Omar may not have known about 9-11 before it took place. Also there may have been those in Al Queda who wanted to avoid provoking the USA for fear it would respond aggressively. If this is true it is very interesting.
