If former Taliban spokesgoon Sayed Hashemi is tossed out of Yale - where he’s trying to upgrade into a degree-granting program - he can probably get a job as an editorial writer at USA Today. That’s a fair guess based on their editorial today.
The editorial is a gooey morass of liberal psychobabble, decrying America’s lousy diplomacy in the western world. It says — and I’m not making this up — that allowing Hashemi to stay at Yale is a “…rare opportunity to promote mutual understanding…” that might be “…torpedoed by shortsighted opposition.”
The editorial labels the Taliban regime “bizarre” without adding any other facts or adjectives. Terrorist and murderous come to mind as some essentials USA Today omits. It also apologizes for the unapologetic Hashemi, saying some of his widely publicized remarks were “naive.”
USA Today should be embarassed. The Taliban were - and are - terrorists with American blood on their hands. Hashemi has never renounced the Taliban, apologized for the help it gave (and may still be giving) to Usama bin Laden or repented in any way.
Why anyone should wish to promote “mutual understanding” between Radical Islamists and America is quite beyond understanding. In this case, it’s beyond parody. The Taliban and the evil ideology it and other Radical Islamists follow must be destroyed. Is that simple enough for USA Today to understand? Probably not.
A man of faith in a godless age is hitting Americans where it hurts.

The debacle of this president’s administration is both a cause and a symptom of the decline of American values. Unless Congress impeaches him, that decline will go on unchecked. An eminent jurist surveys the damage and assesses the chances for the recovery of our culture.
It won’t take long for conservatives to scratch this presidential wannabe off their 2008 scorecard.
The American Christmas, like the songs that celebrate it, makes room for everybody under the rainbow. Is that why so many people seem to be hostile to it?
Was the President done in by the economy, or by the politics of the economy?
