I'm trying to figure out why you call this a "screed against Islam". All he is doing is pointing out who is leading and who isn't in a particularly bad week for America. But by all means, leap to defend the Muslims...even if they aren't being attacked.

Even so, the point of the column was to highlight the lack of leadership in the WH and the House of Rep. So I'm happy you are taking such a sober, measured approach and calling for calm while conservatives are busy rounding up Muslims to waterboard.

BTW, I never heard the incubator story. There was plenty of factual atrocities from Saddam's regime that needed no creative embellishment.

I don't leap to the defense of Muslims. But I also don't jump to conclusions quickly after these events. We have to learn what propaganda, false flag operations, atrocity embellishment and religious hyper-characterizations are inherent in past, current and future events. An example is the media claiming Saddam Hussein's soldiers were overturning premature baby incubators. They didn't do that, but we heard about it...prior to the war.

Carnage in Boston, ricin in Congress and devastation in West, Texas make this the worst week in years for the U.S. That the parents of some of the victims of Newtown were disappointed in the Senate yesterday adds to the gloom, and the president’s unbelievable timing for his fit of pique Wednesday added to the sense that the country is, genuinely, leaderless.

President Obama could not have known that a fertilizer factory would blow a couple of hours after he went on his rant against people who disagree with him. But he could not have not known that all day long...
