Why couldn’t we catch the Boston Marathon bombers? Here’s Exhibit 1.
Not only can’t we catch Muslim terrorists, we can’t even talk about them. I guess we’ll just have to wait around until the Buddhists or the Amish fly two planes into the World Trade Center and then the FBI can put the ad back up with their faces on it.
The FBI says it’s pulling some advertisements off buses in the Seattle area, after some people complained that they stereotyped Muslims.
The ads, which began running this month in connection with a State Department program, features pictures of 16 men wanted around the globe for terrorist activities below the words: “Faces of Global Terrorism.”
Among those criticizing the ads was U.S. Rep. Jim McDermott of Seattle, who suggested they gave the impression that “terrorism only comes from one religion or one color of people,” and said the ads might increase the risk of hate crimes against Middle Eastern, South Asian and Muslim Americans.
And ignoring and covering up Muslim terror increases the risk of Muslim hate crimes like the Boston Marathon massacre and September 11. But that doesn’t matter. It’s only Americans getting killed in Muslim terrorist attacks. Not people who really matter.
