Day 68

Emotions fly at controversial hearing on Muslim Americans

This is going to be something I expect to be pondering over for a very long time.  I mean, these hearings most certainly do smack of McCarthy-like attitudes, and I thought so even before I read it in this article.  Yet, America is now dealing with a whole new type of foe, with new rules and new methods never before dealt with on a national level.  I've never believed that the ends justify the means, but I also believe we might have to rely on unorthodox avenues if we are to protect ourselves from those that seek to destroy us.  This is walking a fine line, and, as a nation, we must tread carefully.
