"If ye love wealth better than liberty, the tranquility of servitude better than the animating contest of freedom, go home from us in peace. We ask not your counsels or your arms. Crouch down and lick the hands which feed you. May your chains set lightly upon you, and may posterity forget that you were our countrymen."

I'm Just A Poor Grey-haired Granny

Here's a poor-little-me woman's tale all the way from Australia courtesy of the BBC:
It wasn't me Guv

The Taliban was establishing what Rabiah Hutchinson thought was a true Islamic state so she wrote to the well-known benefactor of the free world, Osama bin Laden, offering to help in any way she could. She subsequently became quite a 'sleb' in 'the Afghan-Arab' world.

A very pleasant upright chap called Mustafa Hamid (who wouldn't harm a fly and is also known as Abu Walid al Misri) asked her if she would become his second wife. She maintains that when she married him she didn’t know he was a member of the governing council/shura of al-Qaeda and one of the senior leaders advising Osama bin Laden.

And she wonders why she's under surveillance? I just wonder why she was ever let back into Australia. This whingeing, delusional, Himalayan Blue-for-brains, old ex-hippie Aussie bint now has a book out detailing her experiences which is being promoted by BBC Worldwide.

It's just as well she's not British or my adjectival skills would be found wanting.
