The plot thickens! Maybe he's working for bin Laden. Nothing surprises me anymore.

Have you ever read the entire commentary, not just the excerpt? The writer doesn't have a Christian bias, he has a western democracy bias. His complaint is that intellectuals are always trying to find an alternative system for western democracy, (communism, pacifism) and that the movie Gandhi was pure fabrication. He has impressive journalism credentials. The commentary was republished in book form by Thomas Nelson (out of print) and used by many Christians, but Richard Grenier mentions something admirable in the book about Joseph Smith or Brigham Young, I can't remember which, and that's not typical of someone with a Christian bias.

We have to go deeper into this and find out why are these terrorists against us..

We already know why. This is pointless. We have to stop them before they strike again.

Indira Gandhi was Prime Minister Nehru's daughter, not Mahatma Gandhi's.
