Steyn at his best. Key graphs:
Just for the record, I believe that a cell of Islamist terrorists led by Mohammed Atta carried out the 9/11 attacks. But that puts me in a fast-shrinking minority. In the fall of 2001, a coast-to-coast survey of Canadian imams found all but two insistent that there was no Muslim involvement in 9/11.
Oh, well. It was just after 9/11, everyone was still in shock.
Five years later, a poll in the United Kingdom found that only 17 per cent of British Muslims believe there was any Arab involvement in 9/11.
Ah, but it’s a sensitive issue over there, what with Tony Blair being so close to Bush and all.
The nutters are only part of the problem. The sleeping-sickness spreading deniers of the war are even more dangerous. See their comments to the post on Rumsfeld’s speech below.
