CNN TV is reporting (not yet online) that a single U.S. soldier is suspected in the grenade attack on U.S. troops in Kuwait that left 13 wounded. It was an astonishing moment watching Aaron Brown receive this news on the air from the Financial Times' Charles Clover. Brown was incredulous and wore a pregnant expression, straining not to ask the obvious question: Was the soldier a member of the Religion of Peace?
UPDATE The answer is yes, the soldier is a member of the Religion of Peace. In a later CNN TV report (not online) the TIME magazine reporter embedded with the 101st Airborne said that the suspect (who confessed) had an "Arabic sounding last name" and apparently did it for political/religious motivations. CNN did not report the fact that the traitor was a Black Muslim
