Why Do They Hate Us?

The LA Times printed an op-ed today that claimed:

"Bush is wrong to say that foreigners hate us because of our values and freedoms." (emphasis added.)
The op-ed goes on to claim that the true reasons include issues such as US lack of adherence to the Kyoto treaty.
The transcript of Bush's speech however shows that he was actually talking about why the terrorists hate us. No one can honestly claim that bin Laden or al Zarqawi hated us because of Kyoto. On the other hand, the constitutional first amendment rights to, say, commit blasphemy or read Salman Rushdie are on the Islamists' list of reasons. The LA Times might have caught the error if they had fact checkers.
