FUN WITH ELLIPSES
he BBC covers "Jihad" Jack's kiss and tell story, which he recounted after his conviction in Australia on terrorism related charges. Mr. Thomas was so infatuated with jihad, that he actually legally changed his name to it. Read the original, I'm just having fun with ellipses here.
Australia's "Jihad Jack", convicted of receiving funds from al-Qaeda, says Osama Bin Laden does not like being kissed ...Blabbing about OBL's smooching preferences might not be such a good idea, but Jihad probably feels safe, going into jail and all.
Joseph "Jack" Thomas, who met Bin Laden three times in Afghanistan, discussed the al-Qaeda leader's preferences in an interview broadcast after his trial.
Bin Laden was "very polite and humble and shy. He didn't like too many kisses..."But how many would be too many, exactly? Surely this is information the terrorist community needs to know.
Thomas said an al-Qaeda operative, Khaled Bin Attash, told him Bin Laden wanted a "white boy" ... But Thomas said he would never have accepted becoming a "sleeper" ...A few weeks ago we heard how AQ was trying to get some "young Southeast Asian men" into the gang. Now we hear how "the Sheik" wanted a white boy for a sleeper?
As a child Thomas was rejected as a ballet dancer ...... so he became a Lobotomy Scar instead. No I'm not making that up -- that was the name of his punk band!
