Pakistani community lends eyes & ears to find possible threats

(CNN) – It could be like gold in the fight against homegrown terror – community watch, in a Pakistani- American community. The neighbors involved say they're embarrassed by the attempted Times Square plot and tired of getting a bad rap because of a few bad apples. Our Susan Candiotti has a closer look at their efforts.

    Who is kidding who here? The CIA helped setup and create Pakistan's ISI who in turn created the Taliban freedom fighters, bankrolled them with free American taxpayer dollars and ton's of US military hardware including state of the art stinger anti-aircraft hand held missiles.

    And Pakistan is now spinning like Karl Rove for you to believe they actually care about the terror fighters they themselves helped train, equip and organize for decades since 1980? HA!

    By shunning evil people and evil leaders you starve them from what they seek the most, your fear and power over you.

    Sometimes you just have to take charge to control a situation. There are, I am sure, many more good Muslims than bad, however, we only hear/read about the bad ones. I am totally confident that those Muslims, that are tired of being lumped into the same bucket as those radicals, can and could help in many ways to eliminate the stain, and descrimination being put on all Muslims.

    This is the BEST thing the muslim and/or middle eastern folks could do to help us and help themselves.
