Refusal To See What Is In Plain Sight
The multi-culti Left assign the mark of bigot to all who recognize the Islamic commonality of world terrorism. Yet, profiling is a common process as man intakes information and seeks an explanation and a conclusion through logical comparisons. Mark Steyn finds we have gone nowhere in preventing another 9-11 when so many refuse to address the commonality of the terrorist.
9-11 was no "failure of imagination" as described by NYT Thomas Friedman. Steyn explains:
Islamist terrorists had indicated their interest in U.S. landmarks, and were known to have plans to hijack planes to fly into them. But men like John O'Neill could never quite get the full attention of a somnolent federal bureaucracy. The terrorists must have banked on that: After all, they took their pilot-training classes in America, apparently confident that, even if anyone noticed the uptick in Arab enrollments at U.S. flight schools, a squeamish culture of political correctness would ensure nothing was done about it.
