A lot of weird details about this alleged American jihadi nurse story.

Starting with the title:

The American nurse, 19, arrested at Denver airport as she prepared ‘to join and fight with ISIS militant who seduced her on Skype and wanted to make her his wife in Syria’

A 19-year-old Denver woman has been arrested on terrorism charges for allegedly plotting to travel to Syria and join an Islamist extremist she had met online and was planning to marry.

Since when did we start cranking out nurses at 19?

Asperger’s? They’re blaming this on *Asperger’s*?

Apparently, that’s one excuse being bandied about for the “home-grown jihadi” that the FBI just snapped up in Pennsylvania (reading between the lines, it’s an open question whether this one would have been able to get to his target without shooting his own head off).  Speaking as a geek, I know people with Asperger’s*.  Last time I checked, it’s not a condition that encourages people to go around murdering other people.  To put it mildly.

*Also speaking as a geek, I know rather more people who have self-diagnosed themselves with Asperger’s, in lieu of obligating themselves to fully cope with the outside world.
