Hi all,
      It is such non-sense coming out from people like Naom Chomsky and
other so called "intellectuals" that creates an very bad impression
about America outside. These people elevate Osama Bin Laden and such to
the same level of democractic countries like US, Israel and India. 

Theses assholes can't maintain even semblance of logic in their
statements. Read the following comments from Wall Street Journal
Online.

Stupidity Watch (http://www.opinionjournal.com/best/?id=105001713)
Linguist Noam Chomsky, whom the BBC inaccurately describes as a
"political philosopher" and "one of America's foremost intellectuals,"
appears to be confused about Osama bin Laden (See
http://www.opinionjournal.com/best/?id=105001713):

Mr Chomsky said it was "entirely possible" that Bin Laden did not know
about the 11 September attacks and that he could have just been
boasting in a videotape released by the US in December 2001 which links
the Saudi-born militant to the atrocities.

He also claimed that Bin Laden could be taken at his word because his
statements had been "consistent over time and very consistent with his
actions over a long period".

Wall Street Journal's comments:

So let's see if we have this straight. Bin Laden can be "taken at his
word" any time except when he's admitting guilt for the atrocities he
committed.

Regards,
Ashish
