JackStripper: Some many years ago I was watching the evening news when a bearded man appeared in a segment on his rise to power. He was living in France, outspoken and belligerent, preaching Islamic fundamentalism. He was ignored for the most part, especially by our intelligence. Over a period of time there were more and more stories, until the embassy in Iran was overtaken and this old man became supreme leader. No target in this fight against terrorism is inconsequential.
