"One thing that the news covered well was that although there is no excuse for the atrocities that have been committed against these innocent U.N. staff in Afghanistan, there is also no excuse for the actions that provoked this religious war. "

This seems to be the conclusion of most of the coverage of this event. But isn't it odd to distribute the blame for 20 murders equally between the people who actually committed the murders, and some idiot on the other side of the planet? Who bears more responsibility? I think mollie at GetReligion did a good job exposing some of the silliness in coverage of this event.
