Boo who?

The Washington Post reports an alleged assault on John Walker Lindh. First, the Flea is astonished at the Post's lack of cultural sensitivity given JWL's preference to be known as Sulayman Al-Lindh (or was that Abdul Hamid?).

Second is the closing line of the Post article:

Washington contends bin Laden was behind the Sept. 11 attacks.

Someone needs to edit these things more carefully. I cannot believe that line was meant to read Washington contends Osama bin Laden directed the attacks.
