Al Qaeda's recruit

The Washington Post's article about Majid Khan from Maryland - one of the 'high value' detainees at Guantanamo - contained this odd statement from one of Khan's teachers
"It doesn't make any sense to me," said [Janis ] Sanford, who taught many of the school's foreign students. "I can't imagine it.

"He wasn't one of these kinds of fool-around kids. He just seemed serious. . . . He wasn't a light-hearted jokester."
He wasn't a light-hearted jokester? And, this makes it less likely that he could be a terrorist? I don't know, but I've never thought of Osama and the boys as a 'light-hearted', kidding around bunch of guys.
