Makes me think something did go wrong.
Don't need a 15 person team and a bone cutter to kidnap someone.

My way would not to put the political slant on this. OK you hate the liberals and BO, fine. We have the political thread for that rant.

I have my issues with the right wingers too. Both sides of the political spectrum are corrupt and dishonest. Thats for the political thread. Im just noting that the reaction to  his murder does play out differently according to where one leans on the political spectrum.

Not everyone brings politics into every thought they have.

I do get your point.

Some people bring politics into every thought while others bring race into every thought.

...and some do both or neither. The trick is to know the difference.  ;)

A lot of good stuff written here and echo my sentiments. In Islamic regimes and at times elsewhere, full democracy breeds terror.

Remember the arab spring eh? or the syrian revolution, they create vacuums for terror.

Saudi's would do well to ease up on things like women's rights, but terror is all that keeps egypt and Saudi Arabia in check

This whole thing is another reason why trust in the media is at an all time low. If they would have been honest from the beginning and said
You don't deserve to die based on your political leanings.
99% of people would agree.

Instead they made him into a "democracy and human rights advocate" while ignoring stuff like this;

I won't shed tears for the guy, but did he deserve to be murdered?

No.

My comment was solely about the media dishonesty in covering this story.
