How we see truth determines how accurately we see ourselves

The second principle from the Future Achievement International website is Achieve Personal Significance. This is where we look at ourselves and see where we are strong and where we are lacking. Sadly, groups like al Qaeda have such a twisted view of right and wrong that they think they are doing the world a favor by targeting innocents, cutting people's heads off, and the like. No self-respecting, God-fearing person would even consider those abominations to be righteous. Some of our soldiers have been criticized for what has taken place at sites like Abu Ghraib or Guantanamo. And not to belittle any crimes that were committed by our troops, but it isn't US military policy to mistreat the enemies we've captured. In fact, we have fed them well, made sure they have arrows pointing to Mecca, we feed them well. We have had extensive investigations into any possible abuses by our troops, and we're getting rid of those troops of ours who have not acted respectfully. I am quite sure that our soldiers in general go to bed feeling good and blessed by what they are doing, while the terrorists are being lulled into a false sense of security, both here on earth and for eternity.
