Richard Reid: At Home With Al Qaeda’s Rosa Klebb

So says the Mirror, which has shots of “THE SHOE BOMBER IN HIS CELL”.

Al Qaeda’s Rosa Klebb is Richard Reid, currently serving 110 years in a US jail for trying to blow almost 200 air passengers to smithereens.

The Mirror says Reid “never once expresses remorse or regret for his vile crime”. Having read Reid’s history – mentally negligible and suggestible – there are reasons to believe he does not understand what his crime involved.

Reid can contain one idea at a time. Wake up. Get on plane. Put on shoes. Left. Right. Bomb. Socks? Bugger!

And sat in a prison cell, the 33-year-old Britain can only think of better things to come. What else can he do?

Writes Reid: “I had a couple of good dreams about my situation changing for the better in the not so distant future, so this is a blessing from Allah.”

He continues: “I place my trust in Allah that he will bring that into fruition and ask him to give me patience until the time when that occurs.”

Patience. 110 years. Patience…

Reid addresses his father Robin, a recovering drug addict living in a hostel: “I’ve without a doubt come over as a bit harsh to you – although I’m like that with pretty much everyone.”

Including those he tries to blow up…
