Sen. Lindsey Graham (R-SC): ‘Freedom Of Speech Is A Great Idea But We’re In A War’

(By Matt Schneider, Mediaite) - Republican Senator Lindsey Graham appeared with Bob Schieffer and joined others in condemning the actions of the Koran burning Pastor. However, Graham took it a step further, hinting that he would like to see Congress consider actions to limit such free expression by the Pastor and others in the future.

Lindsey Graham: “I wish we could find some way to hold people accountable. Free speech is a great idea, but we’re in a war. During World War II, you had limits on what you could do if it inspired the enemy. Burning a Koran is a terrible thing, but it doesn’t justify killing someone.”
