Is "Muslim" a synonym for "innocent" in any language other than that used at CNN? Would we not be better off if the chattering classes assigned to words the meanings that we've all agreed upon? You know, in the development of our language.
Sounds like good old-fashioned American trial prep.
If we catch them...and don't have the sense to kill them on the spot...then they will be in the American judicial system, where remorse earns you points.
Under Obama's Rules of Engagement, there are unlikely to be any innocent Muslims killed by our Army...unfortunately there will be no guilty ones killed either!!!
It is time to end completely the use of the word "innocent" in these contexts. It is no more than an emotional trigger - i.e. bullshit.
I would also like to see an end to the use of "children" for 16-year-olds with guns in their hands.
