Why the secrecy?

I’m sure that Taj Khan knows far more about Islam than I do. Why then is he so secretive? Why doesn’t he tell us what he really wants?

On Saturday, he wrote: “We” have destroyed Iraq and must exit now.


The Sunnis and Shias are killing each other (they have been for centuries).

Mr. Khan, can it be that you would deny fellow Muslims the democracy that you fled to yourself? Do you really want the U.S. out of the Middle East and elsewhere? Do you really want Islamic hegemony?

Speak up; tell us what you really mean.

I suspect it is far more than a simple cut and run from Iraq.

Could it be that you are seeking regime change in the U.S. as well as in Muslim lands?

So are the terrorists/insurgents. That’s why we went to Iraq. Or have you forgotten?
