Social Justice and the case of Khalid Shaikh Mohammed.
For over 30 years Universities have taught students that the world has been victimized by the United States.
This indoctrination has produced a generation of liberal leadership which is morally guided by a perverse strain of social justice which argues that enemies of the US are really only guilty of defending themselves from the evils of American Imperialism.
There is a perspective within the administration, and government as a whole, which really feels that 9/11 was a justifiable and predictable response to over a century of culturally insensitive capitalistic exploitation of the 3rd world.
As the good Reverend Jeremiah Wright said, “American’s chickens have come home to roost.” Victims families? Bah! Who are the real victims?
The Obama Administration does not confine its definition of victim to those who died during the Khobar Towers attack or 9/11 alone because in the liberal mind the US is guilty of far far worse.
The (mostly) unspoken liberal argument is that people who attack the United States certainly have a degree of justification in their hatred of this nation.
The least the Obama Administration can do is extend this nation’s laws to the people who seek to destroy it.
