Times Square Bomber: Political Correctness as psychological disorder

How’s this for the headline of the year:  NY car bomb suspect cooperates, but motive mystery

The Onion? Nope.  The Associated Press.  Buried deep in the article we find: “A court hearing was canceled Tuesday in part because of Shahzad’s continuing cooperation with investigators, but authorities said they had shed little light on what might have motivated him.”

This is reported by the AP, even though three paragraphs down we find: “Once there [Pakistan], according to investigators, he traveled to the lawless Waziristan region and learned bomb making at a terrorist training camp.”

What were they teaching there?  Zen Buddhism?

There is little doubt that “political correctness” has become a disease that should be listed in the DSM IV.
