From the venerable Harper’s Index:

 

Three times as many Americans believe that attacks on civilians are sometimes justified (24 percent), as Pakistanis and Indonesians who believe that attacks on civilians are sometimes justified to defend Islam (eight percent).

 

Makes one wonder if the depoliticized and Bush-led America is still the shining light on the hill.

 

Makes one certain that Bush is an amoral, dangerous president.
