How can such depravity be excused, and treated with kid gloves? He was American, so the bastards killed him. They beheaded him.
Is that not a blunt enough message? What is it going to take for the media to understand that this

These are brutal, 12th-century thugs attempting to establish an Islamic empire, one or two or 3,000 murders at a time. Do we understand that yet?
