Dear Mr. Blitzer,
Yesterday, you and CNN were all over the story about the conviction of Khalid Ouazzani, an American citizen who donated money to Al Qaeda. While watching, it occurred to me that you do an excellent job of defining what is terrorism and what isn't. Here was a brown guy, a Muslim, who donated $23,000 to Al Qaeda for use overseas. Obviously, he's a terrorist, and you took care to make that clear throughout your broadcast.
There was also a sentencing yesterday you didn't mention. The guilty man's name is Pastor Robert Joos. He's guilty, along with two others, of sending a mail bomb to The Scottsdale City Diversity Office. It was opened by the diversity officer, Don Logan, who sustained major injuries from the explosion. Additionally, one of Joos's congregants, Timothy Coombs, is wanted for the sniper slaying of the officer who arrested Joos--Coombs shot him, pro-life style, through the policeman's kitchen window while he was making a dish of ice cream.
You didn't report that, yesterday. Indeed, you and CNN haven't reported on Joos or his cohorts at any time. And that's why it struck me that you have a keen eye for spotting who qualifies as a terrorist and who doesn't. Khalid Ouazzani, who's swarthy and Muslim, is a terrorist. Pastor Joos, who's blonde, white, and Christian, isn't.
Is that how it works?
