Reader comment on item: When Osama bin Laden Becomes PC

It's simple:
If one kills thousands, we must undertake to understand his motivations, & work with him & his kind to see that their grievances are addressed.
If one offends someone or some group, but kills no one, then the heck with him, just take away his job.
God Save Al Qaeda, apparently.
