Clinic Notes: Terrorists Recruiting Asperger's Suicide Bombers?

Apparently, terrorists using the internet helped a British citizen with Asperger's plant a bomb in a restaurant. The bomb went off prematurely injuring the man with Asperger's and causing a stampede in the restaurant. Sentenced in the Old Bailey Court to 18 years in prison the suspect is now undergoing test in a mental hospital. Many of the children with Asperger's that I treat in my clinic have problems with social concepts so I'm not surprised that the terrorists were successful. I suppose this is an isolated incident?
