Why is John Allen a respected Catholic journalist?

John Allen
 Perhaps it's time for a new eyeglass prescription?

Surely not for mush-mouthed lead sentences like this one:

"Even before the deaths of U.S. Ambassador Christopher Stevens and three other Americans in Libya on Tuesday, Pope Benedict XVI’s Sept. 14-16 trip to Lebanon shaped up as a high wire act."

The "deaths"?  Makes it sounds like they succumbed to the flu, whereas the Ambassador and other Americans were outrageously murdered in a premeditated manner, and the Ambassador's body was publicly defiled afterwards.   All the world knows this; why would Allen attempt to obscure facts, much less notorious ones?  Willful blindness like that displayed by John Allen never leads to wisdom or peace.
