So here we are with another Muslim country to accidentally kill women and children in and make them love us. Thanks, Glenn.
…she just doesn’t give up at a Press Conference (and the fact that she doesn’t get her answer is very revealing. Take a look:
To quote Glenn Greenwald:
She asks the prohibited question about the motives of Terrorists, and keeps asking as she receives complete non-responses, until they all just decide to ignore her.
Brennan’s answer — they do this because they’re Evil and murderous — is on the same condescending cartoon level as the “They-Hate-us-For-Our-Freedom” tripe we endured for the last eight years. Apparently, if Brennan is to be believed, Islamic radicals, in their motive-free quest to slaughter, write down the names of all the countries in the world and put them in a hat and then stick their hand in and select the one they will attack, and the U.S. just keeps getting unlucky and having its name randomly chosen. Countries like China, Brazil, Japan, Chile, Greece, South Africa, France and a whole slew of others must have really good luck. That Al Qaeda is evil and murderous and perverts Islam is a judgment about what they do, not an answer as to what motivates them.
So has anyone actually decided to look at what WE HAVE DONE?
