Fox News Lies: ISIS Leader Released By George W. Bush!

Via: AATTP

The latest lie-riddled reporting on Fox concerns the circumstances of the capture and release of Abu Bakr al Baghdadi, the leader of the terrorist group, Islamic State of Iraq and Syria (ISIS). Fox and other conservative media outlets are endeavoring to place the responsibility for Baghdadi’s brutal march through Iraq on President Obama, but as it turns out, that is utterly false.

In yet another example of journalistic malpractice, the folks at Fox News broadcast a number of reports that got the most significant facts completely wrong. In order to do so, they relied on the assertions of a single, uncorroborated account, and failed to do the most basic follow-up with the people in a position to know. Representative commentaries include these by Fox hosts Jeanine Pirro and Megyn Kelly:

Fox News LIES:

Pirro: The head of this band of savages is a man by the name of Abu al-Baghdadi. The new Osama Bin Laden. A man released by Obama in 2009, who started ISIS a year later.

Kelly: We are also learning more about the leader of the terror group, a man described as the new Bin Laden, the heir to Bin Laden. It turns out he had been in U.S. custody until 2009, over in Iraq, when he was then turned over to the Iraqi government as part of our troop drawdown. And then he was released.

~~~

The TRUTH:

“Ibrahim Awad Ibrahim Al Badry, also known as ‘Abu Bakr al-Baghdadi’ was held as a ‘civilian internee’ by U.S. Forces-Iraq from early February 2004 until early December 2004, when he was released,” the Pentagon said in a statement. “He was held at Camp Bucca. A Combined Review and Release Board recommended ‘unconditional release’ of this detainee and he was released from U.S. custody shortly thereafter. We have no record of him being held at any other time.”

Pat Robertson unloads on Bush for latest Iraq crisis: ‘WE WERE SOLD A BILL OF GOODS!’

1

Televangelist Pat Robertson on Monday blasted former President George W. Bush for selling Americans a “bill of goods” before the Iraq invasion, which led to the violence that is currently sweeping across the country.

During his Monday broadcast, a viewer asked Robertson if there was a solution to the ongoing violence caused by an al Qaeda splinter group, ISIS, threatening to take over Iraq.

“Right now, what we did — and it was a great mistake to go in there,” Robertson explained, pointing out that Saddam Hussein’s “bomb maker” had said that the then-dictator “doesn’t know how to make an atomic bomb.”

And so to sell the American people on weapons of mass destruction, he had WMD and was getting [concentrated uranium] yellowcake out of Africa and all of that, it was a lot of nonsense,” the TV preacher said. “We were sold a bill of goods, we should never have gone into that country!”

“As bad as Saddam Hussein was, he held those warring factions in check, and he contained those radical Islamists,” he continued. “Fix it, no? It’s too late to fix it. It’s unfixable. Those simmering animosities have been there for centuries.”

In the end, Robertson reckoned that there would be conflict in Iraq until an Antichrist appeared before the Second Coming of Christ.

“They will continue to play out until such times that the Lord brings out of Babylon some evil Antichrist or something (Ann Coulter?),” he remarked.

‘Remember Me?’ – President George W. Bush

– GW Bush release 520 detainees from Guantanamo, and he GOT NOTHING in RETURN!

– Barack Obama got out LAST POW out of Afghanistan, which takes away the last viable excuse why we should remain in country.

Thank You, Mr. President!

ALL of Them (R-LA) – ‘GOP Morons of the Day’

Via: Think Progress

According to a Public Policy Polling survey, 29 percent of Louisiana Republicans say President Obama is more to blame for the botched executive branch response to Hurricane Katrina while just 28 percent blamed George W. Bush.

A plurality of 44 percent said they were unsure who was more responsible, even though Hurricane Katrina occurred over THREE YEARS BEFORE before Obama entered the presidency when he was still a freshman Senator.

don’t jump to conclusions:

Before you decide Louisiana has the dumbest GOP members; consider: Texas, Florida, Arizona. >>>
