During a radio interview, Colorado Congressman Tom Tancredo suggested that in response to a nuclear terrorist attack that bombing Mecca would be on the table. I hardly feel it necessary to write just how irresponsible this statement is.
I am glad to see that extreme right of the blogosphere, for example Hugh Hewitt, has taken Tancredo to task for his comments. Hugh links to another blog by Donald Sensing with more links and commentary.
I'd only like to add what a ridiculous question for someone to ask a junior congressman. While he should have had the sense not to give such an equally ridiculous answer, it should be obvious that a junior congressman would have little to say in the matter of how the U.S. responded to a nuclear terrorist attack.
