Innocent by degrees?

Both Bleugghh and Shrub went before the cameras yesterday and denounced the actions of the terrorists that destroyed lives and property in Istanbul. Both piously condemned the murder of innocent victims. And so they should. Terrorism cannot and must not be tolerated.
However, rhetoric about the innocent victims of terrorism, as spoken from the mouths of our wonderful Gruesome Twosome, to whom the innocent victims of the bombing of Iraq and Afghanistan were repackaged as as the more media friendly regretable-but-necessary collateral damage, makes their words ring very hollow indeed.
The words "glass houses" and "stones" spring instantly to mind.
