HARD TO BELIEVE | 2002-08-17

A Mexican came to the United States and killed an American law enforcement officer. So we're executing him.

Not only is President Vincente Fox of Mexico not apologizing to the officer's family, he is refusing to meet with President Bush as a protest against the execution.

A French citizen, Moussaoui, was in on the killing of three thousand American citizens. Does France apologize? No way. France is protesting our treatment of him.

Only a country ruled by respectable conservatives could do all the groveling to the Mexicans and the French that we are doing over these incidents.
