Hilary Clinton's statement
US Secretary of State Hillary Clinton has blamed failings by Nigerian leaders for increasing "radicalisation" among young Nigerians. She pointed to poor living standards and "unbelievable" corruption. She said she believed that bombing suspect Umar Farouk Abdulmutallab was "disturbed by his father's wealth".
Here's what she said "The information we have on the Christmas Day bomber so far seems to suggest that he was disturbed by his father's wealth and the kind of living conditions that he viewed as being not Islamic enough."
Disturbed by his father's wealth? What's wealth got to do with anything? He targeted America, not his father's mansion. There are plenty other rich Muslim men with sons who wouldn't do what Umar did, so I don't understand what she means by this statement. What do you think?
