Washington Post Writer 'Cringes' at Sight of 'Vulgar' Americans Celebrating Bin Laden's Death

For the Washington Post’s Petula Dvorak the sight of American college kids celebrating the death of Osama Bin Laden outside of the White House gates, on Sunday night, was “almost vulgar.” In a May 2 column Dvorak described the scenes of joy as “one part Mardi Gras and two parts Bon Jovi concert” but then went on to say “It felt a little crazy, a bit much. Almost vulgar” and admitted: “my first reaction was a cringe.”

Dvorak, a “Metro” section columnist, then doubled-down on her hand-wringing, saying the U.S. students reminded her of “those al Qaeda-guys dancing on Sept. 11th,” before pondering: “Are we simply creating star-spangled recruitment tapes for a new generation of terrorists killing in the name of their new martyr?”

Dvorak even proudly tweeted her article saying the “Giddiness over bloody military op might leave some queasy.”
