President Obama & America, Reason has a message for you. In the form of an OP-ED piece by Maureen Dowd Let me be perfectly clear, Mr. Perfectly Unclear President: You cannot take such a stand on a matter of first principle and then take it back the next morning when, lo and behold, Harry Reid goes craven and the Republicans attack. What is so frightening about Fox News? Some critics have said the ultimate victory for Osama and the 9/11 hijackers would be to allow a mosque to be built near ground zero. Actually, the ultimate victory for Osama and the 9/11 hijackers is the moral timidity that would ban a mosque from that neighborhood. Our enemies struck at our heart, but did they also warp our identity? President Obama & America, Reason has a message for you, and many of us -- the sane, the dwindling reasonable and rational among us, agree with Maureen note: The war against the terrorists is not a war against Islam. George W. Bush understood this.
