Not Good Enough. And

Reader comment on item: Identifying Islamists through Interrogations

Sorry, Daniel, but I can't agree with you.

First, I have a problem with the term "moderate". Moderate implies a middle ground between 2 opposites. We have Islamists on one side, but nothing on the other that I know, so what is a moderate...someone who supports terror, but just isn't active?
