You've got questions? We've got ... your questions!

The Associated Press reports that Ayman al-Zawahri was to have an online interview to answer submitted questions from Al-Qaida sympathizers. Al-Qaida's media arm, Al-Sahab, invited questions last December with January 16 as the deadline for submission to an Islamic militant website. The questions disappeared soon after the deadline, and no answers have yet to appear.

One would-be militant asked: "I want to travel to join jihad and I sought my mother's permission, but she would not give it to me...Can I go without her permission?"

Jean-Paul Sartre, in Existentialism is a Humanism, noted that "to choose an adviser is nevertheless to commit oneself by that choice." Here's hoping that the young man listens to his mother.
