Of all the bullshit things Slate has ever wrote, this one ranks very highly:
Still, 1 in 10 Muslims in Kyrgyzstan, the politically tumultuous Central Asian country and former Soviet state where the brothers spent about eight years of their childhood, say that it is “sometimes” or “often” justified, the survey shows. Extrapolating from Pew’s 2010 Muslim population estimates, that means about 500,000 Muslim Kyrgyzstanis hold this view.
Is this supposed to be a bad thing? Because if I were to poll 10 Americans if the deaths of Iraqi civilians was justified in order to remove Saddam Hussein, I'd bet anything that number agreeing would be much higher than 1.
