Understanding Arabic Helps When Trying To Understand Arabs

Something for the Osama bin Laden really does have a strategy file.
It may be comforting to think that the people who attacked us “hate us for our freedoms”, and that they have nothing more in mind than opportunistically striking when they can out of some kind of blind undirected rage. Alternatively it may be comforting to think that the people who attacked us did so because of our meddlesome foreign policy.
Unfortunately, “comforting” and “true” are not always the same thing.
