Accused Conspirator, Si! Accused Marine, No!

Bill O’Reilly really pegged it Thursday on The O’Reilly Factor when he noted that Ahmed Omar Abu Ali, an American citizen, and a Muslim, who allegedly conspired to assassinate President Bush, received editorial support from major U.S. newspapers, but the Marine charged with shooting an enemy combatant in Fallujah a few months ago got no such support.

How do we explain that? Why do American (so-called) newspapers take up the cause of a Muslim with al Qaeda ties who is tied to a conspiracy to assassinate the President of the United States, but not speak out on behalf of a Marine accused of murder in a combat situation?
