WAR: Silenced

I haven't weighed in here on the whole Mohammed-cartoon business and don't have time right now to pass on my thoughts, but check out Captain Ed elaborating on a column by the invaluable Jeff Jacoby on why the same media that has been afraid to show the cartoons has slavered attention on Dick Cheney's hunting accident.

A very good column by Jacoby but like Ryan here the U.S. people are still asleep and unfotunately it is going to take a few more wakeup calls before they truly realize the danger the West is facing.

I put together a documentary at my website. Much easier than reading a lot. Check it out at http://www.obber.com.

At least they were honest with their excuses. The problem is you can't be a journalist if you are going to hide from a story, regardless of the what terrorist may be lurking around the corner. This underscores the actual problem. These are the same people who would not blink about publishing and anti-Christian or anti-Jewish cartoon, picture or article. Then if there is an outcry claim First Amendment rights and censorship. They really do see the problem, they know there is potentially a real price to pay for anti-Islam journalism and they are not willing to take that chance. If you can't take the heat, get out of the kitchen.
