Abbottabad seems like a nice place

Well, I wonder if anyone I know has recently been in Abbottabad.  Seems like a nice place to visit, or just hide out and get away from the world.  They have a medical college there for women.  Oh, there was a report of a helicopter crash there at night, evidently on May 1st, and the sound of gunfire.

I'm sorry the correspondents on CBS and ABC I was watching tonight listed terrorist attacks and only mentioned ones against American targets (embassies, naval vessels, the 9-11 attacks), and didn't mention attacks in Madrid, London, or the many, many attacks in Iraq, and even attacks in Saudi Arabia, or perhaps they could have mentioned the attack in Mumbai.  This creed of terrorism has been a global phenomena.  They should have interviewed survivors of attacks whose family members were killed by "al-Qaeda in Iraq" as well as the American survivors of such attacks. The American news media is so hopelessly within a bubble in which only America matters.  'Abdu'l-Baha commented on this when it visited North America.
