In November 2007, the U.S. government sent two terrorists from Guantanamo Bay to Saudi Arabia to participate in an "art therapy rehabilitation program." This Christmas, those two terrorists sent would-be underwear bomber Umar Farouk Abdulmutallab from Amsterdam to Detroit with a bomb strapped to his nether-regions. Both Muhamad Attik al-Harbi and Said Ali Shari are Saudi nationals who have become leaders in Yemen's branch of Al Qaeda. Apparently, paints and crayons aren't the best tools to rehabilitate terrorists.
