I find the accounts I’m reading of the capture and interview of the confessed Bali bomber, Amrozi, to be deeply unsettling. According to every story I’ve read, the terrorist laughed it up with Indonesia’s national police chief, and even congratulated the police on their cleverness in capturing him. He apologized for the trouble he’s caused his family, but seems completely unrepentent at having killed hundreds of people, and indeed seems to find it all quite humorous. All things considered, I prefer my terrorists sullen and bitter.
