    Criminal Liberal Media Silent over Al-Qaeda Torture House

    [quote]NINE DAYS AFTER PHOTOS RELEASED, NETS AND TOP
    PAPERS SILENT OVER AL-QAEDA TORTURE HOUSE

    Yet Top Media Ran More Than 6,000 Stories on Abu Ghraib Abuses




    ALEXANDRIA, VA—The U.S. Defense Department released photos last week of an al-Qaeda torture chamber in Iraq, which showed various torture tools—blow torches, meat cleavers, hammers, drills, metal files—drawings of torture methods, and photos of actual victims found in another house in Karmah who had been burned, mutilated, and tortured in myriad ways.

    To their credit, CNN and Fox News Channel ran stories on the declassified material. Yet nine days since the material was released, neither ABC, CBS, NBC, The New York Times nor The Washington Post has run a story with the photos of this shocking evidence of al-Qaeda’s barbarism.

    Concerning the top media’s silence on the al-Qaeda torture chamber in Iraq, MRC President Brent Bozell issued the following statement:

    “The elite media’s liberal bias is abundantly clear in this case. U.S. soldiers raided several al-Qaeda safe houses in Iraq and discovered stacks of evidence about how al-Qaeda tortures its victims. The tools, the drawings, and the photos are gruesome and clearly show what type of enemy the U.S. is facing.

    “Yet most of the liberal media are deliberately silent. This is the same self-righteous liberal media that ran more than 6,000 stories and countless photos of Abu Ghraib and the abuse of prisoners there by several U.S. soldiers. Where are they now? Why will they not show the American people what al-Qaeda is actually doing in Iraq right now? Whose side are they on?

    “Al-Qaeda’s crimes are a thousand-fold more brutal than anything done by any derelict U.S. soldier. Yet it’s obvious now that the liberal media want to focus on U.S. misdeeds, and alleged misdeeds, and theoretical misdeeds instead of giving the truth to the American people.”

    Everyone knows AL_Q is scum, that's not news. When the US does similar at Abu Garib that's news because better is expected of us.

    What are you fighting for? the media to hold the US Military to the same low standards it holds terrorists to? We are supposed to be morally superior, when we aren't that's a story.

    It is not the least bit surprising --or interesting-- that terrorists who behead people on camera and kill innocents daily torture. Torture is the kind of thing people like that do.

    The U.S. has, throughout its history, been better than that.

    Our WWII interrogators never tortured, yet consistently got better intelligence from detainees than our current group does. The reason for that is that, under Bush, we've spent more time trying to legalize torture than we've spent trying to train interrogators to better usemore effective techniques.

    :huh:

    We also imprisoned thousands of innocent Japanese-Americans during WWII just because they had slanty eyes. Great example.

    This is the blurb from The Smoking Gun:

    [QUOTE]MAY 24--In a recent raid on an al-Qaeda safe house in Iraq, U.S. military officials recovered an assortment of crude drawings depicting torture methods like "blowtorch to the skin" and "eye removal." Along with the images, which you'll find on the following pages, soldiers seized various torture implements, like meat cleavers, whips, and wire cutters. Photos of those items can be seen here. The images, which were just declassified by the Department of Defense, also include a picture of a ramshackle Baghdad safe house described as an "al-Qaeda torture chamber." It was there, during an April 24 raid, that soldiers found a man suspended from the ceiling by a chain. According to the military, he had been abducted from his job and was being beaten daily by his captors. In a raid earlier this week, Coalition Forces freed five Iraqis who were found in a padlocked room in Karmah. The group, which included a boy, were reportedly beaten with chains, cables, and hoses. Photos showing injuries sustained by those captives can be found here.[/QUOTE]


    Damn, they are some brutal mother****ers.

    How about reminding the public of who we are really up against in the war on terror. With too many people it is "out of sight, out of mind". Stories like this should be brought to the forefront.

    I expect the media to report the news, let the readers judge the morality. Some people are too stupid or brainwashed to realize just how evil Al Queda really is. The media should not make assumptions.

    nah....covering men clad in women's underwear at Abu Graihb and indicting Marines for murder in Haditha is more fun and take a greater priority...

    Exactly. The Media needs to stop deciding for me what is or isn't news and just report the god damn facts. Report what the US does, and report what the enemies of the US does, with Prisoners.

    I can judge for myself how right or wrong the actions of the two sides are.

    But no. The Major Media today is simply not credible or objective enough to just report facts, they have to inject their own Politics and biases into the mix.

    Which is why any intyelligent citizen should know not to trust them at face value. Their interests are not the same as the interests of America.

    Once again, excellent response from our friend cr.

    Thousands and thousands of people, people who actually VOTE, sit at home all day and watch The View instead of reading news. Don't underestimate the stupidity of the American public.

    Are you married? Do you not talk to your mom or aunts? The View was ignored until Rosie became a member and Fox news hates her and that is why show became a topic. Rosie is a comedian and has a ton of stupid thoughts, but she has never backed down. I don't care for her, but she has done something very few female comedians have and that is become rich by her craft.

    She is proof to persons like J5 that anyone in this country can become rich, she is the capitalist dream.

    Exactly.

    According to Rosie O'Donell, the terrorists are just Moms and Dads like the rest of us. We have nothing to fear from them.

    Meanwhile Bush is the Devil........
