Yahoo! National News - Wed, 05/06/2015 - 00:47

(Colorado Judicial Department via AP, Pool, File)CENTENNIAL, Colo.

Soofi's story appeared to trace a familiar arc for some Western Islamists - disappointment, alienation, and a search for belonging that ended with the embrace of militancy. Friends in Pakistan, who studied with Soofi at the elite International School of Islamabad, were stunned to discover that police had identified him as was one of the attackers.
