    The problem as I see it is simple. You have a group of people in society that feel they have been shorted some how. So they look for answers, or something that will make them feel better about themselves. The concept of taking people that feel helpless and empowering them by making them feel that they belong to a group has been done before. So, now they become part of this group and they are told that "these people" are not believers like you and I so we need to get rid of them. This is a sad situation, and like some many times before you are giong to have people that can be manipulated to do things that they never would have considered growing up.

    The United States is going to have to take a serious look at how we handle security for this country, and that doesn't mean giving up our rights it just means that we have to hold people accountable.

    The FBI refused to take that case because they concluded he was mentally unstable and incapable of carrying out the attack.

    NEW YORK — U.S. authorities declined to pursue a case against an "al Qaeda sympathizer" accused of plotting to bomb police stations and post offices in the New York area because they believed he was mentally unstable and incapable of pulling it off, two law enforcement officials said Monday.

    New York Police Department investigators sought to get the FBI involved at least twice as their undercover investigation of Jose Pimentel unfolded, the officials said. Both times, the FBI concluded that he wasn't a serious threat, they said.

    The FBI concluded that the 27-year-old Pimentel "didn't have the predisposition or the ability to do anything on his own," one of the officials said.
