Where's the outrage?

Ed Lasky
The world periodically condemns America for its supposed (and mythical) oppression of Muslims here in America. Recall the phony stories-trotted out by "human rights" groups, Democrat partisans, and international NGO groups that Muslims are dragged off the street and subject to prosecutorial pressures.

But now socialist-led Spain is literally rounding up political operatives of ETA, the Basque separatist group. The world collectively yawns.

Double standard? Since the Spanish leader has in the past criticized American policies, it is the height of hypocrisy to be engaging in this sort of oppression of politicians. No?
