War with terrorists or with ... Islam?

Glenn Greenwald is rapidly becoming one of my favorite writers. Yesterday he took a break from his intelligent criticism of Obama to write the first of at least two posts on the "Ground Zero mosque" (which is neither at Ground Zero nor a mosque, as various people keep pointing out). The essential point of Greenwald's column is that those who oppose the "mosque" (civic center) are basically forced to connect any random Muslim to the Al Qaeda.

By the way, as the complaints about the (misnamed) "Ground Zero mosque" rise to a wail, has anyone heard the name Osama bin Laden recently? Do we actually care about .... who was I thinking of ...oh, yeah, terrorists.
