Christiane Amanpour Claims There’s No Moral Equivalence Between Beheading and Chemical Weapons

“This is history coming out,” she says of her rant. It’s certainly something coming out alright.

Contrary to expectations, Christiane Amanpour, raised in Tehran by a Muslim father, is not actually on Iran’s side here. She’s on the side of bombing Syria.

And she claims that there’s no moral equivalence between beheading someone and using chemical weapons. That just goes to show that Christiane Amanpour doesn’t know the meaning of moral equivalence.

Scale matters. Weapons don’t except in terms of threat potential. A man who is gassed is just as dead as one who was beheaded by one her Jihadi pals.

But join Cooper Anderson, Christiane Amanpour, and a man who might be Andrew Sullivan, and the New York Times’ Charles Blow to interrupt and scream over each other about whether we should bomb Syria.

Exit question. Can anyone still pretend that Amanpour is an objective journalist after this?
