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/
"...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."

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.
