What’s Missing?

Here is the Washington Post story on the detention of Faisal Shahzad, the suspected bomber in New York — or at least a person of interest.Here is the Wall Street Journal story on the same.The man is a naturalized American citizen from Pakistan and was detained as he was trying to fly to Dubai.Guess what words are not mentioned in either story?If you guessed “muslim” and “Islam” pat yourself on the back. Neither this administration nor the media wants to foster any resentment toward the violence inspired by that religion.Only tea partiers are violent.I guess this guy was really angry about healthcare reform passing. It really is pathetic that you’re more likely to see the words “racist” and “Republican” together in the newspaper these days than “terrorism” and “Islam”.
