Look for the America-hating right wing to make hay out of any administration effort that doesn't comport to fictionalized TV-movies of superhuman, "Boorah!", Delta Force perfection.I'll be interested to see the backstory of Faisal Shahzad. I suspect that he's young, relatively affluent, fully westernized, and was naturalized pre-2001. I further suspect he fits the profile of the self-loathing Muslim ex-pat... Those between 20 - 35 who have been surrounded by western prosperity, but begin to feel guilty for such privilege and, oddly, over compensate by becoming radicalized and act out as a form of penance or "moral" purge.
