Great article Cal. I sat in shock when I read the original article at the beginning of the week. That one statement by an unnamed State Department official put our efforts to inform the world of the ideology that we are fighting back years.
I had to sit down and write about it also http://mywtfblog.com/2012/04/i-guess-i-missed-the-memo/
I end with the warning that the war on terror will be fought until we either defeat, or succumb to the ideology behind the terror. Our country has some difficult choices, and some very difficult discussions in our future; unnamed sources with silly comments only make the situation worse.
