Blitzer and Military "Expert" Blaming the 40 Victims!!
Edited on Wed Apr-07-04 12:20 PM by stopbush
Un-fucking-believable!

I'm watching CNN, and they're discussing the US helicopter attack on the Mosque. (See yahoo/AP link below). What does Wolfie opine? "Is it possible that this wall was actually blown up by terrorists who are looking to blame the US forces and stir up religious passions among the Iraqis?" Dittohead retired military fuck agreed with Wolfie, natch!

This story clearly says it was a US attack. Fucking whores!!

I turned off CNN and booted up AA.

U.S. Hits Mosque Compound; 40 Said Killed
(AP) - U.S. Marines in a fierce battle for this Sunni Muslim stronghold fired rockets that hit a mosque compound filled with worshipers Wednesday, and witnesses said as many as 40 people were killed. Shiite-inspired violence spread to key cities in Iraq. The fighting in Fallujah and neighboring Ramadi, where commanders confirmed 12 Marines were killed late Tuesday, was part of an intensified uprising involving both Sunni and Shiites that now stretched from Kirkuk in the north to the far south

1. CNN is the Pentagon mouthpiece now...


No point in even watching it, just read White House press releases instead if you want the White House line.

2. yes, Wolf, that's possible
but why stop there? Why not hypothesize that every Iraqi death since the war began was a similar plot by the terrorists to make the U.S. look bad?

3. CNN - The most rusted name in news
You know, its not bad enough they let bushco's lies during run up to the invasion go unchallenged, repeating them over and over like the sorry whores they are, they even now try to spin this quagmire as somehow the fault of the invaded, rather than the invaders.

What we call "anti-American insurgents" Iraqis might call "freedom fighters."

We, after all, are in THEIR country, and we are there, by deadly force, on false pretenses.

4. And what pisses me off
Is the fact that CNN international broadcasts their propaganda throughout europe.

Blitzer's a tool for the Neo-cons and Likud lackies since his day as Jerusalem Post's Washington correspondent.

6. They are freaks...
why not just say, "The wall imploded because it believed in freedom, as opposed to the terrorists that sat upon it".

7. Wolfie got his start as a apologist for Israel
I think it was it at at the Jerusalem Post. So he is used to spinning things like "the orphanage was hit by IDF missiles, but it was their fault, blah blah"
