Good News: Guy Who Invited bin Laden to Afghanistan to Run for President

If Abdul Rassoul Sayyaf wins, it's time to nuke 'em:

The Philippine insurgent group Abu Sayyaf is named after him and he was mentioned in the 9/11 commission reports as "mentor" to Khalid Sheikh Muhammad, the operational mastermind of the September 11, 2001, attacks.

A conservative Islamic scholar, Sayyaf ran paramilitary training camps in Afghanistan and Pakistan in the 1980s and 1990s, and it was there he meet al Qaeda leader Osama bin Laden.

In 1996, Sayyaf helped bin Laden return to Afghanistan after he was ejected from Sudan. Bin Laden stayed in the country under the protection of the Taliban until the American-led invasion of late 2001.

Hooray democracy!

2 I sit here in the darkening gloom of another day and realize it's become some kind of hellish ground hog day.
Same d@mn sh it, different flogging day.
Theater, Circus and rumors of war.
I find that when things go bad, as things often do, and it looks rough, as it always seems to look, don't come crying to me cause...I do not give a duck.
OK guess what?
