Using Retarded Children for Suicide Bombers
The blogosphere is reacting with a mixture of disgust and incredulity to reports that the terrorist groups in Iraq are using retarded people, often children, to carry out attacks. (See this post from Powerline as an example.) Of course, those of us who have observed the Palestinian terror groups know that this is a common practice. But it still reflects monumental hypocrisy and cynicism by the terror leaders. They are apparently having trouble convincing sane people that murdering fellow Muslims, and committing suicide, will get them into Paradise; rather than switch to a more palatable tactic, for example shooting attacks, they instead take advantage of the feebleminded. Scum.
