“A spade is a spade,” began the argument in Steve Sherman’s guest opinion that ran in these pages two weeks ago. Sherman went on to say that political correctness allowed U.S. Army Major Nidal Hasan to fly under the radar before going on a killing spree that took 13 lives.
I found his assertions excessively spacious on several levels.
For one thing, Sherman claims that Nidal’s shouting of “Allahu Akbar” proves that he is an Islamic terrorist. Seems like one of the boys in the Columbine shooting wore a cross. Does that make him a Christian terrorist?
