    I used to think the answer to this was Bin Laden, but after reading an article called "The Brain" (playboy's june issue), I switched my opinion to Khalid Shieikh Mohammed. Does anyone else agree with me? This guy was the mastermind behind so many terrorist attacks (incl. 9/11) that it made my head spin. It was also surprising to read that he received his bachelor's degree here in the States, with classmates describing him as a "class clown". Simply crazy, and scary when you think about it.

    Thoughts or opinions?

    We'll probably never know. He's probably either dead or a gibbering wreck by now.

    This is what happens when you get too involved in fundamentalism. Things change, you change, you become right, they become infidels, etc. etc. And I'm not just including religion ones. this is why I never go into the political forums.

    Are you seriously getting your current events information from Playboy?

    How did everyone overlook that fact?

    Just hope the guy doesn't suffer from kidney failure and has to cart around a dialysis machine. Then we'll never find him... ;)

    I wonder if this guy and bin laden are pulling a Sadam. I mean... the man lived in a hole, and not a spacious one.

    What are the good alternatives these days?

    Unfortunately there is no link to the article. But if it is well researched and uses credible sources of information, I'm willing to consider it.

    I had heard that before as well.

    OBL is a fundraiser and rabble rouser. Probably a reasonable field commander. He probably lacks the truly deviant mind needed to plan things like 9/11.

    Which doesn't say much...

    Fox new is a joke, c'mon guys.

    How about publicly funded news sources? Any TV "news" is simply for entertainment purposes, as they are funded by advertisers. Since they hold the money, they also get a huge say in what gets aired.

    This turns tv news into nothing more than tabloid entertainment, since most people in this country care more about useless crap like who Britney Spears' latest boyfriend is -- and they can't even name the head of the UN.

    I am not sure what advantage there is to publicly funded news since that makes it beholden to the government perspective.

    Just remember though that the National Enquirer broke the story on Clinton perjuring himself.
