That Poor, Poor Guy

Yahoo! start page news has a truly heart-rending story of the unraveling life of a jihadi:

Not long ago, Faisal Shahzad had a pretty enviable life: He became an American citizen after emigrating fromPakistan, where he came from a wealthy family. He earned an MBA. He had a well-educated wife and two kids and owned a house in a middle-class Connecticut suburb.
In the past couple of years, though, his life seemed to unravel: He left a job at a global marketing firm he'd held for three years, lost his home to foreclosure and moved into an apartment in an impoverished neighborhood in Bridgeport. And last weekend, authorities say, he drove an SUV loaded with explosives into Times Square intent on blowing it up.
 It just brings a tear to your eyes.

They just cannot figure out how a guy who had it all could have such bad luck.

It can't be that when he decided to let his hatred consume him that all else was unimportant. He just had a run of bad luck and snapped.

Lone wolf style.
