Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid says congressional lawmakers are discussing taking some action in response to the Koran burnings of a Tennessee pastor that led to killings at the U.N. facility in Afghanistan and sparked protests across the Middle East, Politico reports.
“Ten to 20 people have been killed," Reid said Sunday on CBS’ “Face the Nation.” “We’ll take a look at this of course. As to whether we need hearings or not, I don’t know.”
Sen. Lindsey Graham said Congress might need to explore the need to limit some forms of freedom of speech, in light of Tennessee pastor Terry Jones’ Quran burning, and how such actions result in enabling U.S. enemies.
"I wish we could find a way to hold people accountable. Free speech is a great idea, but we're in a war," Graham told CBS' Bob Schieffer on “Face the Nation” Sunday.
“During World War II, we had limits on what you could do if it inspired the enemy," Graham said, adding certain speech can “put our troops at risk.”
Is Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid a traitor?
Those are the facts: It's ok to burn the flag of the United States and the burning of the New Testament as well as the old Testament. It's ok to behead Jews because they are Jews and to kill Americans unless they convert to Islam. But it's not ok to burn the Koran in the United states because that would be offensive to Muslims all over the world. I don't know about this Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid who think that the freedom to express oneself against a people who are bent and working on destroying the United States as we know it today. Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid claims "I wish we could find a way to hold people accountable. Free speech is a great idea, but we're in a war," Graham told CBS' Bob Schieffer on “Face the Nation” Sunday. My conclusion is that if we are at war with the so called enemy the why are we taking to court the people who are brave enough to say it like it is? Is Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid out of his mind????
