"He Was Good to His Mother"

To put the Hassan Fattah brand of psuedo-journalism into perspective, Daniel Pipes expounds on "how Islamic killers dissemble" in his weblog.

Noting a previous entry in his blog from 2003, Pipes notes that cynical spin, of the kind the clueless Fattah gobbled up whole for the New York Times, is commonplace in the aftermath of terrorist attacks. Pipes notes "the common pattern whereby family and friends of those accused of Islamist murder invariably respond with astonishment and praise the accused."

This is yet another subject for the Empty Suit, the Times's AWOL Public Editor Barney Calame, to not deal with in his cobweb-covered weblog and once-in-a-blue-moon column.
