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

Via: AATTP

1

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.”

I was never a ‘fan’ of Robert McNamara, but I do admire his COURAGE when he finally admitted the Vietnam War was wrong.

So, fuck you Cheney!

Senator Paul (R-KY): ‘Bomb Everybody Tomorrow’ Is ‘Typical’ Republican Policy

Via: Think Progress

“We shouldn’t be everywhere all the time. We should have a more defensive foreign policy, a less aggressive foreign policy. I think that would go over much better in New England than the typical ‘we need to bomb everybody tomorrow’ policy you hear from some Republicans…there were many Republicans that said let’s stay [in Afghanistan] forever,

there are still some in the Senate who want to for 100 years in Iraq and Afghanistan.”

Senator Ayn Rand Paul (R-KY)

http://thinkprogress.org/security/2012/09/10/819641/rand-paul-gop-bomb-everybody/

***

personal thought:

If John McCain had been elected president:

1. We’d still have troops in Iraq, and no time table for leaving Afghanistan.

2. We would have bombed Iran; and have been involved, probably on the ground, in Syria.

3. North Korea, don’t even want to think about that.

4. Our deficit would be trillions of dollars higher, because we would of spent the money on weapon systems the ‘Joint Chiefs of Staff’ DO NOT WANT!

~

Note: the Romney ‘defense advisors’ are the SAME neocon ass-holes who got us INTO Iraq.

****

As Senator Paul suggests (R-KY), ‘Keep the U.S. STRONG and SAFE, Re-Elect Obama/Biden!’

Aide: Romney values ‘Anglo-Saxon’ (WHITE) ties

Via: UPI

Mitt  Romney would restore  an “Anglo-Saxon” touch to U.S.-British ties that  President Barack Obama doesn’t value, an aide said as Romney was to arrive in London.

The presumptive Republican presidential nominee — who begins a weeklong trip  to Britain, Israel and Poland Wednesday — is better placed to understand the  “special relationship” (because he’s white) between the United States and Britain than Obama, whose  father was from Africa (because he’s black), the adviser told the British newspaper The Daily Telegraph in remarks the newspaper speculated might prompt accusations of racial  insensitivity (yeah, ya think?).

“We are part of an Anglo-Saxon heritage, and [Romney] feels that the special relationship is special,” the adviser said, adding, “The [Obama] White House  didn’t fully appreciate the shared history we have (SEE PHOTO).”

personal thought:

I spent ’04 and ’05 in the U.K., and the ‘anti-Americanism’ was very evident because many Brits felt the U.S. had suckered ‘Blair – the poodle’ into the war.

I believe for ther most part, I was able to convince them, I did NOT vote for Bush!
