Dependable Erection

Where's your scarf, young lady?

Josh points out the obvious. Despite frothings from the likes of Michelle Malkin and the screaming loonies of the right that opponents of the Iraq War and George Bush's policies in general are conspiring with our Muslim enemies to bring Sharia law to the US, when push comes to shove, look who actually is happy to see Shari'a in effect here:
To defend itself against a lawsuit by the widows of three American soldiers who died on one of its planes in Afghanistan, a sister company of the private military firm Blackwater has asked a federal court to decide the case using the Islamic law known as Shari’a.

The lawsuit “is governed by the law of Afghanistan,” Presidential Airways argued in a Florida federal court. “Afghan law is largely religion-based and evidences a strong concern for ensuring moral responsibility, and deterring violations of obligations within its borders.”

If the judge agrees, it would essentially end the lawsuit over a botched flight supporting the U.S. military. Shari’a law does not hold a company responsible for the actions of employees performed within the course of their work.

If Shari'a saves Blackwater money, i guess it's OK then.

And you, where's your beard?
