Regarding the Death of Ambassador Christopher Stevens & Co.

There are a number of things that the murder of Ambassador Christopher Stevens and two embassy staffers brings to my mind, but I am confident that by the time I get to writing about them, much, much smarter people will have eloquently commented on the topic accordingly.

Quickly, though:

  • Don’t forget that perpetrating violence in the name of religious fervor, be it by Christians, Jews or Muslims, is the ultimate dick move.
  • While I would hope that the two guys with zero foreign policy experience try to have a little class by not spinning this devastating incident, it appears that they are incapable of holding their tongues.
  • I totally agree with Dave Weigel: “Sweet Jesus do I ever miss Hitchens.”
