Jennifer Rubin's Fear Mongering on Oslo

Jennifer:

Picture above is Anders Behring Breivik, suspect in the tragic attacks in Norway.  Doesn't appear to be a member of the al Qaeda network nor an Islamic radical jihadist.

The alleged killer of 91 people in a bombing in Oslo and mass slaughter at a Norwegian Youth Camp appears to be a right wing, Christian fundamentalist -- according to reports emerging now about him.

James Fallows has called for an apology from The Washington Post and you for the piece in which you decided to exploit this tragedy to bash those in Congress, including Senator Saxby Chambliss (R-GA), for supporting budgets cuts across the nation's spending portfolio -- including in defense.

Perhaps you should link the extremist violence from right wing fanatics, Christian religious zealots within our countries -- within the US, within Norway, and elsewhere -- to your pet causes.  Would at least be more technically correct.
