And the Truth Shall Set You ...?

From an MSN story:

"Maggie Gyllenhaal has waded into sensitive political waters by ... [saying] that the United States "is responsible in some way" for the [September 2001 terrorist] attacks.

A fan Web site devoted to Gyllenhaal was overwhelmed with criticism, forcing the site's editor to remove the ability to post messages "because it's gotten too outta hand."...

She also expressed her grief for "everyone who suffered and everyone who died in the catastrophe." "

YES!, it is true that we have angered the Arab world with unjust globalization policies and unrestrained capitalism, and Reagan and Bush I gave weapons and support to bring both Osama bin Laden and Sadam Hussein to power. Yep, that is certainly "responsible in some way."

It is also good to have the empathy to feel profound grief for the victims. The only thing that needs to be added to paint a full picture of the truth is to make clear that hateful fundamentalist religions, including the middle eastern islamists, and the US fundamentalist christian bigots, are wrong, dangerous, and at fault in the destruction they create.
