Washingtonian Tells The Final Story of Danny Pearl

January 24, 2014


This is one of those posts that only will attract a few readers, but should be read by far more.

I recall exactly where I was when hearing the news that Danny Pearl was dead.  I was seated at the dinner table with my folks in Hancock, Wisconsin and the television news was on in another room.  The reporter made it known that Danny Pearl, one of the reporters who felt it important to head to the source of a story, in his case to report from Pakistan about America’s so-called war on terror, had been killed.

Reporters are too often maligned for the work they do, and not given the respect they deserve for the work they do to inform and educate.  Some, as the case with Danny Pearl, even die as a result of covering the stories we need to know about.

Washingtonian has simply one of those reads that will make you think, cry, and wonder what if as it tells the final story of Danny Pearl.

    The perverted savagery reflected so clearly in the slaughter of Mr. Pearl or in other events like the mutilation of fallen American soldiers in Fallujah speaks with remarkable clarity about the nature and character of Islamic terrorism and the necessity of the continuing war on terror.

    The time for anger has not passed.
