Disappointed with this one

Reader comment on item: [Hasan Akbar and] Murder in the 101st Airborne

I usually look forward to Daniel Pipes' commentaries for their insight and wisdom. How sadly disappointed I was to read this piece.

"No one yet knows Akbar's motives, but ignoring that it fits into a sustained pattern of political violence by American Muslims amounts to willful self-deception."

Please. A handful of events spread out over thirteen years is a spit in the ocean. But I do appreciate Mr. Pipes' vigilance.

"As Sgt. Womack noted, the enemy has already managed to "get into our camp." Do we have the will to stop him before he strikes again?"

Okay. Let's cut to the chase, and bring on the police state. A free society is just too dangerous for the vast majority of cowering cowards among us. Something bad might happen!
