Today, the Panty Bomber--Umar Farouk Abdulmutallab--will stand before a US District court in Detroit and be arraigned like a common criminal instead of standing before a military tribunal and being adjudicated like the enemy combatant that he is. Given the planned criminal trial for 9/11 planner Khalid Sheikh Muhammad, this isn't a surprise, however.
Leaving that aside, I must commend a group of protesters who plan on protesting in front of that court building: a group of Muslims who are indeed asserting that Abdulmutallab did not act in their name—something I suggested.
"We're telling the terrorists we're Americans. If you want to kill Americans come kill us," [Majed Moughni] said.
"We're going to send you back to the caves of Afghanistan because you don't belong in a civilized society.
May God protect those people.
