Koran burning is the least of it

Obama urges Fla. pastor to call off Koran burning

President Obama urged a Florida pastor Thursday to call off a plan to burn copies of the Koran on Sept. 11, warning that such a "stunt" would amount to a "recruitment bonanza for al-Qaeda" and would endanger Americans.

Let's see: Our government invades two Muslim countries on questionable grounds causing civilian "collateral damage" fatalities in the hundreds of thousands. Repeatedly, initial investigations reporting that only insurgents or terrorists were killed have to be withdrawn when reporters or local officials produce evidence to the contrary. Prisoners are tortured and evidence points to it being a consequence of policy by higher ups but only a few low ranking troops, and no intelligence agents, are held to account. And NOW the President and a flock of Senators and Generals are concerned that the protests of an obscure Christian church might be a "recruitment bonanza for al-Qaeda"? Just what do our reality challenged officials think they've been doing for the last eight years?
