School for Terrorists

We (Australia and the U.S.A) are in Afghanistan fighting to squash the training grounds of terrorists. Meanwhile, a school for terrorists exists undisturbed and free to operate under the patronage of Abu Bakar Bashir. Bashir was prosecuted but never convicted of terrorist activities because of lack of evidence.
And here we have the crux of the problem with how to deal with terrorism. Without evidence we only have intent and ideology. Intent and ideology do not constitute a crime. Not yet anyway.
If we cannot overcome this obstacle, we be stuck in a war of attrition for a very long time.

Discouraging, isn't it?

A while back, I wrote about a Muslim school in the U.S. that is funded by tax payer dollars.
