Truth About Terrorism From The Boston Globe?Topics: Political News and commentaries
Given the liberal media's fawning, touchy-feely coverage of the Times Square Bomber and it's inclination to ignores the reality of the source behind 99% of the terrorist attacks on the planet, it is indeed a surprise to see Joan Vennochi, who Jay Tea over at Wizbang describes as one of the Boston Globe's more reliable liberals, "shockingly" acknowledges that the Time Square bombing suspect is, in fact, a radical Muslim and that the vast majority of terrorist attacks are carried out by radical Muslims:
AMERICANS CAN handle the truth. But when it comes to terrorist acts on American soil, government officials are reluctant to give it to us straight from the start.As Tea aptly notes, this is just about a half-step away from admitting that there just might be some tiny bit of merit to the notion of profiling - which is nothing more than applying common sense to resolving a significant threat to our safety and security. After all, just like the Globe's Vennochi points out, given our nine years of experience in the War on Terror - when you hear that a bomb is placed in cars, shoes, underwear by someone, or any kind of terrorist attack, the very first thought that registers in your mind is that a Muslim extremist is involved. So isn't it way past time for the media and our government pussyfoot around admitting the truth?
Instant analysis of the Times Square bomb scare kicked off with the usual official disclaimers: Don't presume a Muslim extremist had anything to do with it.
It was likely a "lone wolf" operation, suggested Senator Charles E. Schumer of New York, or, as New York Mayor Michael Bloomberg speculated, "somebody with a political agenda who doesn't like the health care bill or something." Janet Napolitano, secretary of Homeland Security, said it was being treated as a "potential terrorist attack" but it could be a "one-off" or isolated incident.
[...] Nine years after the terrorist attacks of Sept. 11 and the corresponding war on terror that American troops have been fighting in Iraq and Afghanistan, the average citizen gets it. Some Muslim extremists want to kill Americans and will keep on trying to accomplish their mission.
It's the first thought that registers when a bomb is placed in cars, shoes, or underwear by someone described as Muslim. What's so terrible about acknowledging that link? (Emphasis added)
