[B]Shama Khan has often been a poster-child for moderation and rational thinking among the Muslims here, compared to some of the radicals we've seen. So I am trying hard to understand what she is saying... is she really supporting Osama bin Laden? She just seems convinced that there's no real proof that Osama was the mastermind behind the attacks on America. If that can be interpreted as "support" for Osama, it can then be extrapolated as "support" for his ideology, which among other grand plans, includes harming America. So the point here is: does an American citizen have a right to support an ideology promoting harm to his/her own country?
I may have gone off on a tangent here; so perhaps Shama can explain this better.
While I disagree with Shama Khan's thinly veiled support for the fundamentalist cause I must say
she has a point here.

[B] As a great nation, our general responsibility is to look out for our interests. It is only natural that what is in our interests sometimes runs counter to sombody else. So the fact that we may support a regime in the Middle East without a positive human rights record, will certainly offend some. On the other hand not supporting that country may have other consequences that will offend others.

Duh! The Taliban. Have they been sleeping through this whole thing. The Taliban is backing and authorizing bin Ladens activities. That classifies them as terrorists also. The Taliban is curently in power in Afghanistan. Therefore we are striking at Afghanistan.
As well as working on finding the onesies and twosies like bin Laden himself and gang.
