Wright’s “Blowback”

Here’s what the New York Times had to say about the Rev. Jeremiah Wright’s causal assessment of 9/11: “A useful and timely alert.”

Newsday had this to say: “[He] is on to something.” And from the Nation came this: “A straight-talking analysis.”

If Rev. Wright was guilty of anything, other than harshly speaking harsh truths, it was sins of omission. He failed (at least in the video segment I’ve seen) to exempt the actual victims of 9/11 from personal culpability. He also failed (again, in the narrow segment I’ve seen) to equally passionately denounce the always-unjustified horror of terrorism against the innocent.

  1. Didn’t Phil Mahr get blackballed after 9/11 for saying much the same thing?
