Politically Correct?

Bill Maher, host of ABC's "Politically Incorrect," is under attack. Sears and Federal Express pulled their sponsorships of the show. Viewers are angry. Several affiliates have dropped him. His show is teetering on the brink of cancellation, all because he said the terrorists who attacked the World Trade Center weren't cowards. Rather, he said, "We have been the cowards lobbing cruise missiles from 2,000 miles away. That's cowardly."

Mr. Maher is entirely correct, though his comments were poorly timed. The Clinton policy of risk-free symbolic strikes against Saddam Hussein and Osama bin Laden was cowardly.
