78. K&R. I heard some of the cable news today,
and more than once i heard the media whores talking about Wright blaming America. The whole "chicken's roosting" thing.

But wasn't it bin Laden himself who said basically the same thing? The excuse that he "hates our freedom" seems not so true when you read why he himself said why he's attacking us:

"Several months after being expelled from the Sudan, bin Laden issues his "Declaration of War Against the Americans Who Occupy the Land of the Two Holy Mosques." It reads, in part:

"Muslims burn with anger at America. For its own good, America should leave ... There is no more important duty than pushing the American enemy out of the holy land. ... "

That was the reason. America even had bases in holy sites, as I recall.
