Why is it that the paragraph I quote below from Friday's paper is merely one inch on page A-4? It is a horror -- it should be plastered in great bold, black letters on the front page for us to see what some American authorities are capable of conceiving. "(A) student objected to the material"? Just one student? Who are the officers who designed and approved this course? Have they been investigated and charged yet? Why not? What else is our military doing that I don't know about and should? What does it mean today to be American? This is insane! Surely others care too. Please speak out.
"A course for U.S. military officers has been teaching that America's enemy is Islam in general, not just terrorists, and suggested that the country might ultimately have to obliterate the Islamic holy cities of Mecca and Medina without regard for civilian deaths, following World War II precedents of the nuclear attack on Hiroshima. The Pentagon suspended the course in late April when a student objected to the material."
