Mark Thompson

A WRITER for Time Magazine, Mark Thompson, wrote a piece entitled, The Fort Hood Report: Why No Mention of Islam? In it he justifiably criticizes the U.S. military for being too politically correct. All along the career of Major Nidal Malik Hasan, there were clear signs that perhaps this man was a threat to his fellow soldiers and his country, but they were "studiously ignored" because of blind multiculturalism.

Accusing people in government of being willfully ignorant of the basic doctrines of Islam is usually something only bloggers do — not mainstream writers like Mark Thompson. It took courage to say something so politically incorrect, but it needed to be said (and still needs to be said, to as wide an audience as possible), as Thompson has done.

So we officially award Mark Thompson the Citizen Warrior Hero award. Thank you, PinkNeck, for the suggestion.
