It turns out that two of the terrorist leaders, now in Yemen, who plotted Abdulmutallab’s intended Christmas Day atrocity over Detroit, were released from Guantanamo in November 2007.

Their names: Said Ali al-Shihri and Muhammad Attik al-Harbi (since changed to Muhammad al-Awfi).

They were flown off to Saudi Arabia, there to be healed of the tragic affliction of their souls which, compassion junkies believe, compelled them to be torturers and killers.

The magic cure was ART THERAPY.

Yes. Designing tiles or whatever non-representational art Islam permits.

Michelle Malkin tells us more about them:

In January 2009, the two “rehabilitated” recidivists released a video vowing to wage jihad to “aid the religion,” “establish the rightly guided caliphate” and ” fight against our enemies.” One of the duo, Said Ali al-Shihri, is suspected of involvement in a deadly bombing of the United States embassy in Yemen’s capital, Sana, in September 2008.

So art therapy doesn’t work for terrorists?

Can we think of anything else that might be worth a try?

    Art therapy alone cannot change hearts and minds. What is need is a holistic approach. How about an intensive summer camp training in all of the following:

    self-esteem enhancement
    rebirthing
    aromatherapy
    drumming
    chanting
    yoga
    feng shue
    anger management
    weight management
    consciousness raising
    sexual dis-inhibiting
    ethical eating
    recycling and planet healing
    carbon awareness
    dream telling
    emotion sharing
    anti-stereotyping
    Traditional Native American dispute resolution rituals
