Ann Coulter Quote of the Week

"In response to Bush's ultimatum, Saddam's son, Uday Hussein, said Bush was stupid. He said Bush wanted to attack Iraq because of his family. And he said American boys would die. At least someone is finding The New York Times editorial page helpful these days.

In angry harangues largely indistinguishable from the one by Uday Hussein, the Democrats were also hopping mad at Bush. Sen. Joe Lieberman, D-Conn., spent 40 minutes detailing Saddam Hussein's manifest cruelties and violations of all human norms. Without breaking a sweat, Lieberman then said he could understand why the French were not bothered by these indisputable barbarisms: It was Bush's failure of 'diplomacy.' Bush, the clod, had failed to convince the inconvincible.

Sen. Tom Daschle, D-S.D., said: 'I'm saddened, saddened that this president failed so miserably at diplomacy that we're now forced to war. Saddened that we have to give up one life because this president couldn't create the kind of diplomatic effort that was so critical for our country.' Mostly, the Democrats were saddened that America was about to win a war.

When what they DON'T say tells you more than what they DO say

Here is the ABC news online story about the grenade and gun attack by a U.S. serviceman on his own unit that left one U.S. soldier dead and about a dozen seriously injured. The relevant portion is as follows:

"Word of the U.S. soldier's death came as military officials were questioning a member of the U.S. 101st Airborne Division, and searching for another suspect, in connection with the attack on leadership tents at a the division's Camp Pennsylvania in Kuwait.

'The suspect is an engineer from the engineer platoon that was attached to one of the infantry battalions,' said Col. Ben Hodges, commander of the 1st Brigade. 'He became a suspect when, of course, all of this happened and we tried to get accountability of everybody and we noticed that four hand grenades were missing.'

"Time reporter Jim Lacey told ABCNEWS he talked to an eyewitness who said grenades were rolled into tents that housed the leaders of the brigadier unit. A culprit, the witness told Lacey, shot the first two people who exited the tent.

"Besides the soldier who was killed, 13 were injured. Eleven soldiers were rushed to a field hospital.

"Max Blumenfeld, a spokesman for the U.S. Army V Corps, told The Associated Press preliminary information suggests the motive for the attack was likely resentment, but he did not further elaborate.

Here is the Washington Post treatment of the same story. The article is entitled "U.S. Soldier Held for Another's Death in Grenade Attack." And here's the relevant portion of this article:

"A U.S. soldier assigned to the brigade was in custody, the officials said. The soldier who was killed was not idenfitied.

Army sources said that soldiers from the 1st Brigade had loaded their vehicles and were preparing to move from Camp Pennsylvania when the grenades exploded at about 1:21 a.m. local time in the operations center, which is in a closely confined tent and usually manned by a couple dozen staff officers.

A soldier guarding a convoy of engineer vehicles was found to be missing, as were four grenades from the convoy's ammunition supply.

Roughly an hour after the grenade attack, a missile alert sounded and the missing soldier was discovered in a protective bunker. The soldier was arrested and was in the custody of the military police at Camp Pennsylvania

OK, now. There is, apparently, one other little fact that didn't make it into these stories. Now I only heard this on the Fox News Channel, so if it turns out not to be correct, I'll gladly retract. But here's the little tidbit that the Post and ABC left out:

The suspect is a muslim.

It strikes me in light of everything that has gone on that this is a not insignificant fact, and I wonder why it was omitted from these stories.

That was sarcasm. I really don't wonder at all.
