What does it take for us to get the message?

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

Submitted by Steven Hess (United States), Mar 27, 2003 at 17:10

Of course Sergeant Akbar will now enjoy the presumption of innocence and all the legal protections of the country he hates. And our PC military and media announced to sighs of relief that this was "not a terrorist act"...EXCUSE me?

Had the "resentful" Sergeant Akbar served in any the military of any Muslim nation, his life would have ended in the desert behind the tents he attacked. What does it take for us to get the message?
