European Left Flys Into Another Snit; Pilot Error Blamed

Glenn Greenwald of Unclaimed Territory has been bashed recently (richly deserved) in these pages. But Greenwald's post about the European Left's reaction to the Tookie Williams execution is a must-read:
Whatever the proper definition of the term “anti-American” is, it exists in grotesque abundance throughout the European Left. It was difficult to read yesterday’s Associated Press article reporting on the so-called “outrage” among “Europeans” towards Arnold Schwarzengger’s refusal to grant clemency to mass murderer Tookie Williams without feeling a good amount of outrage of one's own.
I encourage you to go read the whole thing. Thanks to Tracy S. for emailing me a link to Greenwald's post.
