Rep. Pete King did an interview with Fox News yesterday updating the American public about the intelligence collected or not collected in the bin Laden compound raid, but he also reminded the public of these two blots on the records of Osama bin Laden's potential replacements to lead al Qaeda: one is Anwar al-Awlaki, who had been arrested for soliciting prostitutes, and the other is Ayman al-Zawahiri, who, as a doctor, molested young patients.

I'm not sure at what time in these men's lives they committed the crime, but it just goes to show that when you kill your conscience enough to be part of a group that calls for mass murder, the depravity is rarely isolated in just one area of your ethics code.
