Re: Mr. Wallaces' comment

Reader comment on item: No American Muslim Terrorists? [A Reply to Spencer Ackerman]
in response to reader comment: All Terrorists Muslims?

Although the format of the postings is expositive rather than interactive amongst the posters, I would like to respond to Mr. Wallaces' note. Technically, he is correct, not all terrorists are muslim, however, the majority are. And most Americans recognize that even if he doesn't.

Humans are pattern recognizers, and in this instance, it is a foregone conclusion that most terrorists are muslim. Thats the pattern and if that is offensive, too bad. Its something called a fact not a politically correct whitewashing of the truth.
