Bette Midler has added her voice to those choosing to point the finger of blame for the Sept. 11 death of four Americans anywhere but Libya, and certainly not at the White House. Forget freedom of speech, forget due process — someone has to pay. Cher wants something to happen to Pastor Terry Jones, even though it’s not his film which supposedly incited the violence. University of Pennsylvania professor Anthea Butler wants Sam Bacile in prison now, even though he might not exist. Can’t we just throw someone in jail and forget this ever happened?
Once we’ve thrown this murderous filmmaker in jail, the riots will stop and we’ll be able to turn our attention back to our most pressing domestic issue.
