The politically correct version of the September 11 attacks holds that the Muslim world rejected such violence as un-Islamic and condemned the attacks.  This is not true.  The Muslim world celebrated the attacks.

[VIDEO] GlobalPost CEO: James Foley’s Murder ‘Cannot Go Unanswered’

“I would say this: Something needs to be done to respond to this brutal murder. I think we have to take a stronger stand with the Islamic State.”

Via The Corner:

GlobalPost CEO Philip Balboni told MSNBC he is confident that the U.S. government “tried very hard,” and he has communicated with officials since Foley was kidnapped in November 2012. In light of Foley’s death, though, the government must do more, he said.

“I would say this: Something needs to be done to respond to this brutal murder.”

“I’m not an expert — I don’t know what exactly should be done — but this brutal murder of an American citizen cannot go unanswered,” he said…(read more)
