Hedgecock reads from Iranian propaganda to say Obama supports Al Qaeda



On Dec.14 of 2012, right wing talk show host Roger Hedgecock of KFMB in San Diego, CA reported the "remarkable news" that the Obama administration had "secretly" sent 3000 US troops back into Iraq and 17,000 "are about to go in." Hedgecock never named his source, referring only to "the press report" and "this press account", but what he read was verbatim from a report by the Iranian state media outlet Press TV, which is the only source to be found for the supposed troop movement. Hedgecock used the Iranian state media report to charge that Obama plans to invade Syria in order to install a pro-Al Qaeda government as part of his charge that Obama has "switched sides" in the war on terror.

The press report from Press TV, the Iranian state media outlet, is here: http://www.presstv.ir/detail/2012/12/09/277127/3000-us-troops-secretly-return-to-iraq/

Full text:
"...Today, the remarkable news, that troops of the US military have, and I'll quote from the press report, secretly entered Iraq. ... Troops include US Army officers and 17,000 more are set to secretly return to Iraq via the same route, that is, through Kuwait."

"So what is going on? 3000 troops in Iraq, 17,000 more, this press account says, are about to go in. Well, what's going on is, we're going to get into another war, in Syria.

"But this time we're going to be on the right side! We're going to be on the side of Al Qaeda, the winning side! (Laughs) I have to somehow joke and laugh about this because how tragic is this?"
...
"What about it, folks on the left? What about it, anti-war left, what about it, academics, uh, war for oil, uh, war for, whatever. Your president is gearing up for what looks like, hope I'm wrong, a new war in Syria.

"Unless they can get Assad out of there quickly, and get Al Qaeda in power quickly, like they did with the Muslim Brotherhood. Get Mubarek out so we don't have to send in our troops.

"Put the Muslim Brotherhood in power, so they can fulfill their dream, first stated in the 1920s, of reestablishing the caliphate, um, the caliph leading a united Muslim nation dedicated to the overthrow of all other governments and the extension of the realm of Allah to the entire globe, and the imposition of Sharia law on all people. That's the side we're on now.

"And yesterday I posited all that to Congressman Duncan Hunter. I said, listing all these things, does it sound to you, have we switched sides in this war on terror? And he said, yes we have. Just like that, he said yes we have.

4. I don't think that's accurate.

His indictment was on felony charges but his conviction was for misdemeanors, I believe (either way he left office in total disgrace and was obviously playing games with campaign funds and personal funds). If you can show that he is a convicted felon, please do, I would appreciate it.
