America becomes enraged when one of her own dies at the hands of the enemy. Paul Johnson's murder is but another in what, unfortunately, may become a long string of high profile murders of Americans in the Middle East.
This up swell in sentiment raises questions about the 800 or so other Americans who have died in that region. Where is America's outrage at their death's? What's the difference in the relative indifference that we approach their deaths? Could it be that because "W" has censored the press from covering certain key elements of American deaths (like showing their flag draped caskets as they come home) that we are prevented from personalizing each American death so as to continue to give "W" a pass on his failed mission?
I bet you can guess what I think!
