Reader comment on item: Why the Left Loves Osama [and Saddam]

Dr Editor: In the context of the nexus between the Islamists and the left let us not forget one major connection. A lot of left consists of university professors in the United States and other democratic countries. These professors make a living by getting published and winning grants and it is a lot easier to get published and win grants if you are politically correct than you are utterly honest. We would like the entire world to be objective and honest but that is just being naive. The real world has vested interests.
