Legacy of Terror

I was trolling around CNN's site this evening and found this article about the father of one of the 9/11 hijackers praising the actions of the 7/7 London bombers. From the article:

El-Amir said the attacks in the United States and the July 7 attacks in London were the beginning of what would be a 50-year religious war, in which there would be many more fighters like his son.

He declared that terror cells around the world were a "nuclear bomb that has now been activated and is ticking."

Interestingly, when the CNN crew requested another interview with him, El-Amir told them it would cost them $5,000, which he would promptly give to "someone to carry out another terror attack." CNN declined; apparently, their policy is to not pay anyone for interviews. I wonder, however, how many less-scrupulous media outlets are out there willing to pay for such interviews.
