Another commentary railing against the politicization of the fight against terrorism. This time from The Kansas City Star’s Mary Sanchez:
Sure, the young Nigerian failed to blow up that Detroit-bound airliner on Christmas Day. His mission foundered on his own bumbling and the quick action of crew and passengers in tamping the flames.
But considered from another perspective, he hit the bulls-eye. Killing people, by whatever means, is just the terrorist’s method. The goal is to disrupt, to strike fear, to sew discord among the enemy. And listen to us now, so willing to oblige.
