Krauthammer on Gitmo

leave a comment »

For those who might still be weeping over the detainees at Gitmo and the alleged Koran abuse, Charles Krauthammer wields an effective cluebat.

Moreover, what were the Korans doing there in the first place? The very possibility of mishandling Korans arose because we gave them to each prisoner. What kind of crazy tolerance is this? Is there any other country that would give a prisoner precisely the religious text that that prisoner and those affiliated with him invoke to justify the slaughter of innocents?

If the prisoners had to have reading material, I would have given them the book “Portraits 9/11/01” — vignettes of the lives of those massacred on Sept. 11. Why this abjectness on our part? On the very day the braying mob in Pakistan demonstrated over the false Koran report in Newsweek, a suicide bomber blew up an Islamic shrine in Islamabad, destroying not just innocent men, women and children, but undoubtedly many Korans as well. Not a word of condemnation. No demonstrations.

Read it all.

Update It’s Gitmo day apparently. Here’s Michelle Malkin.

A good friend recently acquired some kittens. He says they only intended to get two, but I count three in the pictures. They are a quite adorable set of littermates. This is Phillipa and Lymond:

And this is Sybilla:

Current Lord of the Manor Tristan apparently alternates between “glowering” and “apoplectic.” I suspect he’ll come around – three such hotties will no doubt melt the old curmudgeon’s heart. Daphne and Chloe, however, could not be reached for comment.
