The blogosphere is abuzz over conservatives’ charges that a logo being used by the Pentagon’s Missile Defense Agency looks very much like a fusion of the Muslim crescent moon and star and the Obama campaign logo. Some folks even detected a similarity to the Iranian Space Agency logo.
“New Missile Defense Agency Logo Causes Online Commotion,” said the headline on Drudge. Indeed it did. Our pal Frank Gaffney, writing on his blog, expressed alarm. “The Obama administration’s determined effort to reduce America’s missile defense capabilities initially seemed to be just standard Leftist fare,” wrote Gaffney, a senior Pentagon official in the Reagan administration. But “a just-unveiled symbolic action suggests, however, that something even more nefarious is afoot.”
