Oh ya, this guy has some big brass ones!!! LOL

Just surfing along and I found this little piece... "Terrorist Offers Hurricane Sandy Aid, US Says No Thanks..." 

I almost spit out my pop when I read that title. IMO, maybe the US should have said yes, then perhaps trace back where the money came from and nabbed us another most wanted terroist and put another big 'ol feather in our cap! 

   "The U.S. has turned down an offer of post-Hurricane Sandy assistance from one of the world's most wanted men, a Pakistani terror leader with a $10 million U.S. bounty on his head.

Hafiz Saeed, an Islamist militant who is alleged to have masterminded the 2008 Mumbai terror attacks that left more than 160 people dead, issued a written statement Wednesday saying his organization was willing to send supplies and volunteers to help the U.S. East Coast recover...."

Anyway, thats just a piece of the article. I wouild like to think he was dong it out of the good of his heart, but I doubt he has one.

  • It is kind of odd that a terrorist is offering to help us. They really should've tricked him somehow so we could catch him lol.

  • This is just to show how STUPID they believe us to be. He would have sent a bunch of terrorists over to blow things up and hurt us even more.

  • The hurricane happened before the election, there was concern about people who were affected by the hurricane to the polls.

  • Hey, money is money- let him give it to those who need it. Then if he's caught in the process, the reward money could be donated too!

  • But if he was offering his rebuilding skills, let's face it, he's simply not qualified. All he knows how to do is blow stuff up! :p
