“The U.S. military is holding 20 people suspected of links Al Qaeda links, the commander of American forces said Tuesday. ‘Currently, we have about 20 who are suspected of being from Al Qaeda,’ L. Gen. Ricardo Sanchez told reporters. ‘We are still questioning them’ and have not determined absolutely whether they are members of Usama bin Laden’s terrorist organization.
“U.S. officials have said they suspect foreign volunteers, including some from Al Qaeda, have slipped across the borders into Iraq to take part in a ‘holy war’ against the U.S.-led occupation.”
I trust that these U.S. officials are going to explain to these volunteers that they have it all wrong: jihad is actually a spiritual struggle.
