RIGHT ON RED4
Where The Left Takes A Turn For The Worse








According to the Guardian, Daniel Pearl's family has asked that Pearl's name not be used by the Presidential campaigns. This in response to a reference made to Pearl by Dick Cheney in a recent speech:
A sensitive war will not destroy the evil men who killed 3,000 Americans. The men who beheaded Daniel Pearl and Paul Johnson will not be impressed by our sensitivity.
I mean no disrespect to the Pearl family, and I am sympathetic to their wish, but Pearl's murder is a part of history now, part of the public record. This was not an ad or a bumper sticker; it was a campaign speech by the Vice President on the subject of fighting terrorism. I think it's a little unrealistic to ask the country to pretend Pearl's beheading is irrelevant to the public debate this year. But I would respect their wishes, nonetheless.
