This JTT quote from the mosque thread struck me as an example of obsession:
"MM's was an inane question, CI, because it was simply an attempt to divert the issue away from war crimes, crimes against humanity, genocide, ... ."
That is not the topic of the thread, much as JTT has tried to make it so, on that or many other threads. Much of the rest of the thread has been an interesting discussion of different viewpoints.
Adds, there aren't all that many people to my left...
(kidding, but there's an element of truth in it)
