Political correctness is tying our hands

Reader comment on item: [President Bush and] Naming the Enemy

Submitted by Saeel (Canada), Aug 17, 2004 at 11:19

As mentioned numerous times in the past, the administration fears that it would offend Muslims by naming the enemy as Muslim extremists.

However, the question is not, "Are most Muslims terrorists?", as terror apologists would try to force on us. The question is, "Are most terrorists Muslims?" Regardless of your worldview, you have to admit that the answer is yes.

That's the message that the Bush administration should be pushing.
