Obama Says Koran Burning Endangers Our Troops

Today, during an appearance on Good Morning America, President Obama spoke out against Florida pastor Terry Jones' plans to throw Korans into a bonfire on the ninth anniversary of the September 11th attacks.

President Obama called Pastor Jones' plans "a stunt" that could "greatly endanger our young men and women in uniform who are in Iraq, who are in Afghanistan."

I, for one, agree with the President.

However, I also think the presence of Islamists in the U.S. military also greatly endangers our young men and women in uniform who are serving on military bases on U.S. soil. But President Obama warns us against jumping to conclusions and won't draw them even when it is staring him right in the face.

I would give President Obama's comments greater weight if he were to acknowledge that Islamic fundamentalists are at war with us and that "diversity" takes a back to seat to the safety of our troops at home and abroad.
