Western Exposure

Holy Crap. I was just reading an article about how exposure to our western culture doesn't seem to soften the beliefs of hard-core Islamists when I noticed that this guy...

(you remember him don't you, Khalid Sheikh Mohammed) attended my alma mater, Chowan College... a small Baptist college in North Carolina. Geez. He was a few years after me. When I was there, there was a large contingent of Iranian students, but it was before the fall of the Shah and they were mostly pro-West. Read more about this guy here.

I love how they give terrorists cute nicknames now.

If he ever gets out of jail, you both could meet up at some college homecoming event.

There were 5-6 Iranian students at Morris Harvey (UC) when I was a student there. I got to know 2 or 3 of them well, and they were very nice. If I ever heard one of them had become a terrorist, I would faint dead away!

When I first saw this shot on CNN I thought they'd made a mistake and captured porn star Ron Jeremy!
