Shouldn't Take An Op/Ed . . .

This should have long been obvious. Titled "Our prisons are fertile grounds for cultivating suicide bombers," the piece is just common sense, insofar as it lays out the ways that prison offers the "near occasion" for conversion to the most unwholesome brand of Islamic faith. It would be interesting to know how many American convicts emerge from prison as newly-converted Muslims -- but don't hold your breath waiting for a study that may well never appear.

Earth to any elected official wanting to incarcerate terrorists, say, in American prison rather than at Guantanamo Bay. This is one of the many reasons it's a bad idea.
