Boston Globe: Look in the mirror . . .

From an op-ed by Derrick Z. Jackson in the Boston Globe:
IN HIS INITIAL reaction yesterday to the London transit bombings, President Bush decried ''people killing innocent people." He said: ''The contrast couldn't be clearer between the intentions and the hearts of those of us who care deeply about human rights and human liberty and those who kill -- those who have got such evil in their heart that they will take the lives of innocent folks."

The piece goes on to say how hollow that must sound to Iraqis who have suffered the deaths of unnumbered thousands of innocents since the invasion It's a sobering read.
