....Moharam popped back up on the radar in 2011 in an interview someone with his name gave to a Daily Kos blogger in Kansas City during a pro-revolutionary protest against Egypt's authoritarian regime.
Moharam railed against Al Qaeda and Hosni Mubarak's regime and praised the U.S. at length. "We have the best land, the best freedom in the world," he told Daily Kos, in broken English. "Why we don't tell these people copy from us?"....
A Daily Kos blogger? I don't think the Los Angeles Times quite understands how things work around these here parts.

They certainly didn't bother to ask me. If they had followed the provided link they would have found my name so they could ask me, along with a photo of the interviewee which would have probably confirmed his identity to them.
