Avoidable Mistakes are Inexcusable Ones

This story is simply ridiculous. We’ve been intensely engaged with the Muslim world for the past six years. In that time, the military hasn’t figured out that Muslims are touchy about the shahada (their declaration of faith)?

We’ve got an uphill battle with the Muslim world–literally in some cases. It’s not too much to ask that a little care is taken not to unnecessarily irritate them (seeing as how we might want to store up a little good will for those issues where we’ve got good reason to irritate them).
