Name that interviewee.

A CBS reporter posed the following question:
"You know that the president says Iraq is the central front in the war on terrorism, don't you believe that?" asked Mark Knoller of CBS, surrounded by a host of other reporters.
Now, guess who's response this was:
"No, because it's not true," ______ replied. "You know Iraq was no threat to the United States of America until we invaded. I mean they're not even a threat to the United States of America. Iraq was not involved in 9-11, Iraq was not a terrorist state. But now that we have decimated the country, the borders are open, freedom fighters from other countries are going in, and they [American troops] have created more terrorism by going to an Islamic country, devastating the country and killing innocent people in that country. The terrorism is growing and people who never thought of being car bombers or suicide bombers are now doing it because they want the United States of America out of their country."
Michael Moore? Not this time. Howard Dean? Not this time either.

If you guessed "a woman who sees her son's killer as a freedom fighter," you'd be right. It was her.
