HuffPo Contributor: ‘Why Should I Care’ About Death of Ambassador Stevens


Huffington Post contributor Sharmine Narwani took the occasion of the murder of our ambassador to Libya to launch into an anti-American diatribe that culminated in her asking why she is supposed to care about Ambassador Chris Stevens’ death or that of the other two killed with him.

Sharmine Narwani, who is also a correspondent for Al Jezeera and an associate at St Antony’s College, Oxford University, took to her Twitter account on Wednesday after it was reported that Ambassador Stevens was murdered by a rioting Islamist crowd in Benghazi, Libya.

100s of 1,000s of Arabs & Muslims slaughtered by American troops. Tell me again why I should care about whatshisname-plus-three?

Almost immediately Twitter followers began to attack the HuffPo blogger for her callousness. But Narwani was unapologetic. At one point she asked a detractor why he questioned her “logic” just because it was different from his. “His life,” she said of the ambassador, “does not hold any more weight than another.”

But here’s the actual logic to Narwani’s points. If she feels that ambassador Stevens’ death is somehow equal with everyone else’s and yet is so dismissive of his death, then logic states she is equally dismissive of all deaths. You can’t be dismissive of one death if you think all deaths are equal without being dismissive of all!

Logic is obviously not Narwani’s strong suit.
