MORAL EQUIVALENCE UPDATE II: Let's do an experiment. Take the following quotation from this Washington Post report:
"Entering the cities, refugee camps, searching, arresting terrorists, catching explosives . . . we don't have anything else we can do," a senior Israeli security source said, speaking on condition he not be identified. "We have to go on with this activity as far as we can. We can't sit inside restaurants in Israel and wait for suicide bombers to attack."
Now, let's switch a few words:
"Entering the [training] camps, searching, arresting [and killing] terrorists, catching explosives . . . we don't have anything else we can do," a senior [American] security source said, speaking on condition he not be identified. "We have to go on with this activity as far as we can. We can't sit inside [New York and Washington] and wait for suicide bombers to attack."
Now, whose anti-terrorist campaign was it President Bush was calling "unhelpful" yesterday?
