It's one thing for Obama to support the mosque at ground zero, it's another for the former Solicitor General under the Bush Adm. whose wife was killed on the plane that was hi-jacked and crashed into the Pentagon on September 11th to support it...Olsen says: "We don't want to turn an act of hate against us by extremists into an act of intolerance for people of religious faith"...(Video)

His wife was reported to have called him from the plane after the hi-jacking on the morning of september 11th...
Not really outrageous. Ted Olson is a left wing liberal.
Dontchaknow Islam loves this guy for his blind stupidity?
First homosexual marriage now this. The guy has jumped the shark.

Ted needs to be checked out as he has become unbalanced. This is offensive, but even more offensive is his new role as spokesman for gay marriage. His participation in CAs proposition 8 is incredibly disappointing. Apparently this conservative no longer believes the will of the people, and believes in an all powerful ruling class.
For those who may have forgotten, or didn’t know..his wife was a FReeper...screen name “bko”..I enjoyed mnay a Freepmail correspondence with her. Her last book on Hillary had come out that summer, and we were tryign to arrange an “author’s night” for her at the Chappaqua Public Library”..it would have been a hoot!..A great lady..beautiful, intelligent, and gracious..she is sorely missed...
Wonder how he would feel about a memorial victory mosque being built adjacent to the Pentagon.
No one is objecting to them having the islamic jihad center..its just not right for them to put it at ground zero...its insulting to others. whats wrong with them trying to be a little considerate of the rest of the nation.
Somethin’s not quite with Ted. He also is behind the gay marriage debacle in California.
Ted has went to the other side.
Opinions are like ***holes, everybody has one. Remember, he was lead counsel on the anti-Proposition 8 case in California. He’s nowhere near as conservative as his late wife. He’s a Mitt Romney/Meghan McCain/Bushie RINO.
Not at all. It just shows that Olson is motivated by reason, logic, and the rule of law rather than blind emotion and hysteria.
What a wussified coward!
If it had been my wife, I'd be waging my own CRUSADE against these b*st*rds!
Is he becoming the new Arianna Huffington?
Muslims pray daily at Pentagon’s 9/11 crash site
Their death cult butchered your wife Ted.
Keep this idiot Ted away from any future conservative causes, he is clearly flake material now.
Evidently, his wife was a lot more conservative than he is, or her death put him over the edge or something.
He thinks it fine to have naked muslims swimming above the dead of 9-11?
He sure is, isnt he the lawyer for the “gay right” advocates in Cali? Barbara would be ashamed. Maybe they were a Carville and what is her name?? geez cant remember?
Oh. Mary Maitlan?
Where is the “Look! I’m an attention whore!” post?
A mosque at Ground Zero = religious tolerance.
Does Ted appreciate the irony in this?
Olsen’s a spokesman for gay marriage?
Maybe he went gay after moslems killed his wife, yet doesn’t mind being killed by moslems himself. Thus he supports the mosque aka toilet.
I can’t figure it out.
They know d@mn well that we're not intolerant of the peaceful practice of anyone's religion.
We're intolerant of triumphal mosques built on sacred sites.
We're intolerant of our tax money going to fly the imam around the world to try to secure funding for it.
We're intolerant of the slap in the face and the salt in the wound caused by just the very idea of building a triumphal mosque anywhere near the site where almost 3,000 innocent workers were incinerated for the sin of sitting at their desks working on a Tuesday morning.
We're intolerant of our elected officials siding with our enemies against us on this issue.
We're intolerant of a lot of things, but freedom of religion has never been one of them.
He’s with the Fags and the Jihadis. Now he just need to put in a room and let nature take its course.
If roles were reversed ....reminds me of cindy sheehan and what she did to her sons memory.
He’s just spouting the ‘we’re so tolerant’ line, favored by so many these days.
Probably the same he feels about the one being constructed in a field in PA, where the forth plane went down. Probably wouldn’t bother him a bit. Seems he’s on a quest to show how super tolerant and superior he is compared to the unwashed masses. The ruling class must have questioned his credentials.
Since his wife was killed in the plane that went into the Pentagon, I don’t see how his opinion really matters all that much in relation to the mosque at Ground Zero.
Guy is a moron, always was a moron. Remarried faster than K-Y Jelly slickens entry! I hope he rots in hell!
The fact that he has remarried may have something to do with his Leftward flip. New wives are generally more left-wing, as in Barry Goldwater.
Boy this guy sure got over his wife’s death rather quickly didn’t he..now he is posturing for the same muslims that slaughtered his wife. WOW Teddy, ya think you could have shown your wife a wee bit of more respect then that. Obviously Ted doesn’t remember seeing muslims from all over the arab world celebrating in the streets when the towers fell and passing out candy to children in the gaza strip
Olson is a traitor.
But then I suspect you agree with the 9th. circuit decision that claiming military medals you didn’t earn (stolen valor) is logical, reasonable and lawful.
Yeah he was making the rounds after making with the “it’s a religion of peace” jazz. I’m pretty sure those opposed out number the few for.
Ted has moved on to wife #4. Someone called Lady Booth. I miss Barbara every time I see her book in my bookcase.
“Not at all. It just shows that Olson is motivated by reason, logic, and the rule of law rather than blind emotion and hysteria.”
I’m not sure about that totally, but I am leaning that way. This mosque could be everything folks say, a victory monument to a death cult locally led by a terrorist sympathizer if not one himself. But if that is the only reason to block it, it is going to get built. It is America after all.
I am actually more upset about how the greek orthodox were treated. Ground zero is being hailed as some sacred piece of ground, but lets face it, this was no Pearl Harbor. We were caught with our pants down when we knew better, and if ground zero is a monument to anything, it is to that of the broken liberal NY government for letting it sit this long. Fill in the damn hole, put up a plaque to remember what happened there and build baby build!
Lately I’m driven to wonder if someone is blackmailing Olson with Special Old Photographs or something.
Ah Ted, being a sheeple we thank you for your support...all we want to do to extend our tolerance and peace to those who oppose us so in expression of our gratitude please allow us to escort you into our gas chamber in the name of Islam.
And to think Barbara changed her flights to stay home an extra day to help celebrate Ted’s birthday.
Sadly pathetic turncoat.
His elite friends have gotten to him. He is now making amends for Bush v Gore.
RE: “The fact that he has remarried may have something to do with his Leftward flip. New wives are generally more left-wing, as in Barry Goldwater.”
Dear God! Do we have anything to fear from Rush’s new bride, Kathryn????? Hopefully not; he’s been with her for a number of years already... still, there was that little matter of Elton John!
Build a “Victory” Mosque an the Pentagon grass right outside the impact area and see if he changes his tune.
However, I do believe in property rights and religious freedom and there is no conservative consistent view or opinion that can say they have no right to build it where they want to build if they own the property.
I said to my wife last night how long before family members start coming out in support of this, and lo and behold, here they are, amazing, such fools !!!
Barbara Olsen was to Ted Olsen as Mary Matlin is to James Carville.
