Pakistan's Terror Group (LeT) Upper Income Recruits

From the "let's pump more money into Pakistan to help the poor little ole impoverished from joining Lashkar-e-Tayyiba" files:

[MoneyJihad]Far from being impoverished orphans, the young men recruited by Pakistani terrorist organization Lashkar-e-Taiba (LeT) tend to be among “the best and brightest” of Pakistani society, according to a study released last month by the Combating Terrorism Center at West Point based on biographies of 917 LeT members.

The findings severely undercut British Prime Minister David Cameroon’s position that Western development aid to Pakistan improves education and reduces poverty which in turn prevents extremism.

The foreign aid is not preventing terrorist recruitment, some of the aid is stolen by Pakistani elites, and some of the aid is given to terrorist groups through Pakistan’s ISI spy service. There is no longer any justifiable reason to continue transferring taxpayer money from the West to Pakistan.

1 It sounds like LeT recruit from the same spectrum as the Scientologists. Can't have too high an IQ or too low a one, has to be right within a particular band so that they can manipulate the person to follow their teachings and hand over all their cash without realising they are being played for suckers. Maybe Osama got beamed down from Zorg's spaceship?
