HUGH HEWITT accuses Washington Post blogger Joel Achenbach of engaging in moral equivalence regarding Zarqawi and American forces in this post, but I have to say that I didn’t read it that way. To me, it seemed that Achenbach was juxtaposing the bestial approach of Zarqawi with the matter-of-fact tradesmanlike approach of the U.S. military.

Now some of the comments below Achenbach’s post, on the other hand, are just pathetic — but not surprising.
