Sometimes it IS the fault of the schmuck with his finger on the trigger....

Christopher Hitchens:
"It is he, who I am taking as representative of a larger mentality here, who uses equally inert lingo to suggest that Maj. Hasan was 'pushed over the edge by his perception of the Iraq and Afghanistan wars.' That's a nice and shady use of the word 'perception.' Might it not be equally true to say that Hasan was all-too-easily pulled over the edge, having already signaled his devout eagerness for the dive, by a cleric who makes a living by justifying murder of Muslims and non-Muslims alike?"
