American Muslim Congressman to be sworn in

... on Thomas Jefferson's Koran.

Thomas Jefferson, though, did have some issues with Arab corsairs on the Barbary coast.

Ironically, Morocco was the first country to officially recognize the independence of the United States of America.

"...Jefferson’s willingness to use force had triumphed in America’s first war on terror in the Middle East."

OMG, so the "war on terror" goes back some 200 or 250 years! It was the mercenaries at the Coast of Barbary who were terrorizing the world; not the enslaving and extermination of millions of Africans, Asians and Latin and NAtive Americans (and the pillaging of their homelands) by the Europeans and early Americans! Bill Bennett's selective reading of history is only second to that of GWB in its intellectual and political rigor!
