Well personally I would choose Gerry Adans as being the scumbag father of terrorism, but thats my opinion. I am not trying to be patronising, so forgive me if it comes across as so, but you are wrong on your last point.............it's the rest of the world share a different opinion than the US. The rest of the world having vastly different media outlets, completly different ways of reporting - against one countries reporting which is known throughout the world to be self-serving, bias and insular. No disrespect, but your media does your people a great dis-service. It treats you as being stupid and then when many Americans do get into Political discusions with foreigners, generally it's realised after a while that your media doesn't exactly give the whole story. Im know Im not the first to say it and I certainly won't be the last.
