CNN.com is whoring for the NeoCons again..
Instead of just admitting the US military bombed a mosque, they have this in their lead story:

U.S. aircraft destroyed the wall of a mosque compound, according to a U.S. military source

A wall??

see it for yourself:

2. a wall of a mosque compound...
...haha, yeah, that's some twisted linguistics there.

Try, missled a mosque. Wait, no, that won't work...

"bombed the wall of a mosque-like compound structure"

"aggressively exploded the exterior surface of a mosque-like compound structure"

"took action which resulted in the deterioration of a compound structure many claimed to be mosque-related"

4. I like how they said....
a 500lb bomb was dropped on the wall.

500 pound!?!?!

They didn't have to hit the mosque directly with that payload!

...as if the gates of hell weren't open wide enough...

10. Yawn. So what else is new?
CNN being a Bushevik Toady (90% of the time) is nothing new, other than it is being taken to new an Orwellian levels lately.
