This is one on of the worst posts I have ever read. First, we have no sound proof evidence that this was related to radical Islamic beliefs. Just because someone bombs something and has strong Muslim views, does not automatically make them Islamic terrorists. Does it seem to be the direction this is headed in? Yes. But I think we all, or at least I did, with the dc sniper case, that just because someone has a Muslim name and radical views doesn't mean it was acted out for that reason. The dc sniper was simply trying to make his wife's murder look random.

Secondly, cutting off limbs in retaliation is not what we as a country are about. If it was, I would leave. We also have the opportunity to learn much from this kid, yes he is essentially a child, about how this happens and why.

As someone who lived in the dc metro area during the shootings and who now lives in Boston and stood a mile from the finish and a mile from the shoot out and was asked to stay in my home for a day, most of us do not want him tortured, we do not want him immediately shipped off to Guantanamo. We want to see him go to trial. We want him to be encouraged to speak. That is not accomplish les by ripping someone's appendages off.
