And the Pelosi goes to . . .

Well folks, I've decided to dust off the "Nancy Pelosi Award for Idiocy, Simple Mindedness and Ignorance," and bestow it to this week's rightful owner: MSNBC's Chris Matthews

Take it away Chris!

Four years after 9/11 and the "crazy zeitgeist" that permeated the United States, most Americans have still not learned to know their enemies instead of just hating them, U.S. political journalist Chris Matthews says.

In a speech to political science students at the University of Toronto yesterday, the host of the CNBC current affairs show Hardball had plenty of harsh words for U.S. President George W. Bush, as well as the political climate that has characterized his country for the past few years.

"The period between 9/11 and Iraq was not a good time for America. There wasn't a robust discussion of what we were doing," Matthews said.

"If we stop trying to figure out the other side, we've given up. The person on the other side is not evil -- they just have a different perspective." (ed.-wait, hold on. He didn't just say that the people who make a living trying to destroy and kill every American and Israeli citizen from off the face of the earth just have a different perspective?) He said Bush squandered an opportunity to unite the world against terrorism and instead made decisions that have built up worldwide animosity against his administration.

Let me guess, Chris understands and feels what the terrorists really feel, right. I mean it must be the aggressive U.S. foreign policy decisions that have fueled their outrage right? Wrong.

If you're really interested in understanding the root causes Islamic terrorism, a root that can explain virtually all terrorist attacks across the globe for the past 50 years, you must read Victor Davis Hanson's Article "And then they came after us."
