The self confessed murderer and thug Khalid Sheikh Mohammed is praised in "Daily Kos: The Eloquence of an Enemy Combatant" (taken down as of this writing).
...KSM delivered a closing statement in broken English that contains
eloquent statements about the nature of war and America’s predisposition to
KSM makes a statement that many in a liberal arts college would find
familiar; that it is often the winner of a war that dictates its history. If
Britain had beaten out the colonies in the Revolutionary War, he insinuates,
George Washington would not be a hero, but an ‘enemy combatant:’ a
He is saddened by the deaths of the 3000 civilians in Sept. 11,
especially the lives of children, but points out that America too, when pursuing
a target, will knowingly bomb houses with children and innocents inside.
Now we are calling killing terrorism, he says, whereas centuries

He is likewise preoccupied by making the point that Islam is not a
bloodthirsty religion. ...there are exceptions to injunctions against violence

For Christ's sake, if you boil this drivel down it is your basic "Can't we all just get along" statement after one has created murder and mayhem and attempting to deflect blame by blaming. KSM and this diarest have returned to 5th grade parlor tricks to excuse inhuman behavior.
No wonder Kos took this down. Not even a mother would buy this crap.
