Comment:Abdul Malik Mujahid's comments are honest, extremely refreshing and balanced. The Muslim world can only improve with more honesty and humble self-reflection and less criticism and saber rattling. On another note, we Americans should relish the goodness that has come from the last few weeks as we have seen our leaders demonstrate regret at wrongdoing, humility, and the resolve to hold those accountable responsible for their actions. This, not waving a big stick and talking down to the rest of the world, is what true leadership is all about.

Comment:Mr. Mujahid's essay on the American reaction was very much appreciated. As a former Army Intelligence officer --and now, a high school teacher, he has used a horrible act of inhumanity to demonstrate the strengths of this country.
As a note to him, I hope he may also convey that when I attended training both at Military Intelligence School in Arizona and the Officer's Candidate School in Georgia, it was drilled into us over and over again to NOT do the types of things that were broadcast two weeks ago. I cannot understand how ANY American officer or enlisted person can think those actions would bear any fruit or serve any purpose.
p.s. As a child, I attended Catholic school, and a nun used to say (when she saw evil in the world), "Oh the Devil is dancing tonight. " What they did was evil and wrong. May God forgive us all for that.
