Area police continue to search for a man who they believe killed his two teenage daughters and left their bodies in a taxi at an Irving hotel.
Police sealed off a street and surrounded the man’s home in Lewisville for more than five hours Wednesday but found that Yaser Abdel Said, 50, a cabdriver, was not inside.
He is being sought in connection with the deaths of Amina Yaser Said, 18, and Sarah Yaser Said, 17.
Both victims died of multiple gunshot wounds, the Dallas County medical examiner’s office ruled Wednesday…
But will the West ever recognize the true threat? From LTC Joseph C. Myers, Army Advisor to the Air Command and Staff College:
"More importantly we have not studied Islamic Law and few have seen or heard of even the English translation of it that has been in print for years, none had at JSOU or had read a work titled Understanding Jihad, War and Peace in the Law of Islam or even The Quranic Concept of War...I can go on but let me be frank.
This failure of intellectual preparation is a leadership failure, and it is as the 9-11 Commission warned, a failure of vision.
We have spent much intellectual capitol revamping and analyzing our own doctrine as it relates to counterinsurgency...it's time we do our homework on the threat...We began on September 12, 2001 with "Islam is a religion of peace," which soothed ideological sentiments of many but has failed us strategically, short-stopped the objective, sytstemic evaluation of the threat doctrine..."Islam is a religion of peace" is fine for public policy statements, but is not and cannot be the point of departure for competent military or intelligence analysis...it is in fact a logical flaw under any professional research methodology...you have stated the conclusion before you have done the analysis."
