Reader comment on item: [Beslan Atrocity:] They're Terrorists - Not Activists

Submitted by Allan Grant (United States), Sep 7, 2004 at 14:20

Regarding today's article, you forgot to mention the best one of all, (well maybe the second best after 'Activists') that was on NPR's ATC last week. It was an introduction to a report of the murders: The announcer called them, "an Armed gang."

I tried to find the audio archive but only the actual report was on their site, not the intro.

My jaw dropped on the drive home!
