America 'Responsible In Some Way' For 9/11, Says Actress
Maggie Gyllenhaal, saying 'America has done some pretty reprehensible things', made the comment at the Tribeca Film Festival. So, Maggie, let me see if I understand the equation properly: the U.S. has done some bad things (and it has: slavery, some of Kissinger's foreign policy decisions, Watergate - these are a few things that come to mind), so 3,000 innocent people just making a living at their office building deserve to be incinerated by terrorists. Did I get it straight? Moral relativism, folks - it's the single biggest threat to intelligence, and it must be fought whenever and wherever it's found.
