Under intense questioning on Capitol Hill, Attorney General Eric Holder flatly refused to admit that "radical Islam" could even conceivably be a reason that a growing string of Muslims perpetrate terrorist acts against the United States.
The same Eric Holder who called Americans "a nation of cowards" for their attitudes about race, and called Bush administration officials "war criminals," has suddenly developed such delicate sensitivities that he is unwilling to concede that Malik Nadal Hassan, Umar Farouq Abdulmuttalab, and Faisal Shahzad had any ideological links. No, they just happen to be three guys with somewhat exotic names (sort of like Barack Hussein Obama). It's all just a crazy coincidence.
Most assuredly, the vast majority of Muslims are not terrorists. But when America's Attorney General is afraid to even say "Islamic radicalism" out loud...then the terrorists have won.
Mr. Holder, you either need to buy a vowel,
solve the puzzle, or get off the stage.
