Twisted Truth

Reader comment on item: Barack Obama's Muslim Childhood
in response to reader comment: K.H. Ahmed, agreeing with KHA

Infidel,

In a sense I stand corrected. I did not like my use of the phrase "twisted truth" it has a connotation that was not my intent - the truth is sometimes shaded or altered by the perspective of the observer and it is not their intention to "twist" it - It was poorly worded - sometimes I write too quickly and without proper consideration.

As to the "New History" like the book "The End of HIstory" it is all polemic - we make "History" - we make it each day- the belief that there is a great "other" out there scheming our demise is one that has gone on for centuries and history teaches us that the threat never really was what we thought it was - We hide behind our little slogans - pick our little tribes - push the hot button issues - and never ask the real questions - What does "Infidel" want for himself and his own - If we know that then we know what will make history.
