Andrew Sullivan wrote regarding Noam Chomsky's comments on Bin Laden:
Oh, and "uncontroversially, Bushs' crimes vastly exceed bin Laden’s." Uncontroversially. It's that word that proves you are listening to a fanatic.And I think Sully's right, but just because Chomsky says its uncontroversial, doesn't mean it is. So why doesn't Andrew make that easy argument? Who knows, maybe Andrew looked at the number of dead people between "them" and "us." But I know what the real point is that no one else will say: it's easier to kill the asshole that kills innocent people, turtles, anything really to promote their bake sale; rather than a nice guy who accidentally kills innocent people.
