"Ostrich Posture"

Reader comment on item: Terror & Denial [by Hadayat at LAX]

Submitted by Rudy J. Hedgpeth (Canada), Jul 10, 2002 at 07:55

An excellent article on the U. S. Governments impotent "Ostrich Posture" concerning the definition of terrorism, as this "Head in the sand" approach is only clouding the issue and making it easier for terrorists to ply their trade. Political correctness is now affecting our ability to see the obvious, which in the end will contribute to further acts of terrorism.
