One Week. Still No Apology or Remorse
It's Thursday now. Still, our President has not apologized or even offered a statement of remorse on behalf of the innocent victims who perished. Pakistan is pissed, and rightfully so.
Whether the strike successfully killed Ayman al-Zawahiri or not is totally unimportant in this matter. We killed 18 innocent people. We owe the world an apology, at the minimum.
Without showing any remorse, we have now become exactly what we detested four (4) years ago. In essence, we have become the terrorist.
Like I stated on Sunday, it makes no difference if a bomb is strapped to a person or falling from a plane, if we are killing innocent people without remorse, we have become the terrorists. Plain and simple.
Frankly, I've been amazed at how the blogosphere has been almost silent on this matter. Are people scared of being seen as some "Hanoi Jane" character? I don't care how I'm viewed. Right is right, and wrong is wrong. And last Friday, as a nation, we were wrong, BIG TIME! Our leader should step up and apologize. Our leader should show some compassion. And we should not be afraid to speak up for what is right.
