Washington Post Smears Palin Again, Gets Facts Wrong Again, Doesn’t Check CNN or Youtube – Even Better, Idiots at Huffington Post Don’t Fact Check Either and Run With It

A good blogger tries to not take a newspaper or wire services report on face value, because lets face it, journalists are human and can get it wrong, many journalists get it wrong on purpose because they have an agenda. The Washington Post has been the worst offender when it comes to publishing out and oput lies about Governor Palin that anyone who fact checked for 10 minutes could discover the simple truth about.

Today on page one the Washington Post:

Palin Links Iraq to Sept. 11 In Talk to Troops in Alaska

By Anne E. Kornblut
Washington Post Staff Writer
Friday, September 12, 2008; A01

FORT WAINWRIGHT, Alaska, Sept. 11 — Gov. Sarah Palin linked the war in Iraq with the Sept. 11 terrorist attacks, telling an Iraq-bound brigade of soldiers that included her son that they would “defend the innocent from the enemies who planned and carried out and rejoiced in the death of thousands of Americans.”

The idea that the Iraqi government under Saddam Hussein helped al-Qaeda plan the attacks on the World Trade Center and the Pentagon, a view once promoted by Bush administration officials, has since been rejected even by the president himself. But it is widely agreed that militants allied with al-Qaeda have taken root in Iraq since the U.S.-led invasion.

ONE PROBLEM WASHINGTON POST, HER QUOTE MAKES NO REFERENCE TO 9/11!

AL-QAEDA HAS KILLED AMERICANS IN EMBASSY ATTACKS, ROAD SIDE BOMBINGS AND OTHER ATTACKS THAT HAVE NOTHING TO DO WITH 9/11. ON THE OTHER HAND, MAYBE THE WASHINGTON POST HAS NEVER HEARD OF AL-QAEDA OF IRAQ…….

Here is the full quote starting about four minutes into the video:

When you start going back out on missions you remember that for the rest of the time your there for THEM to fight for THEIR honor, This will be true on your mission as well wherever it leads you. All of you will also be there for THEM, you will be there in service to the same cause of freedom from tyranny and from violence, you will be there defend the innocent from the enemies who planned and carried out and rejoiced in the death of thousands of Americans. You will be there because America can never go back to that false sense of security that came before Sept 11th 2001.

Why did the Washington Post not include the full quote? Because when you see the full quote it is obvious that Palin is talking about the mission to defend the Iraqi people from Al-Qaeda. It is Al-Qaeda who attacked the World Trade Center twice. In fact the change of strategy that General Petreaus implemented with the surge was to stop only doing pinpoint strikes against Al-Qaeda in Iraq, but also to protect the Iraqi people form Al-Qaeda and that change in strategy worked, which is the exact mission Gov. Palin is explaining to her troops.

MAYBE THE WASHINGTON POST DOESN’T WATCH CNN:

U.S.: Letters detail infighting over al Qaeda’s Iraq mission

  • Story Highlights
  • Letters say leaders chide al Qaeda in Iraq over recruiting, moving “assets” into Iraq
  • Umbrella group Islamic State of Iraq accused of exaggerating in propaganda
  • One letter obtained in U.S. operation that killed Al Qaeda information minister
  • U.S.: Al Qaeda in Iraq operating with only a third of the fighters it had two years ago

BAGHDAD, Iraq (CNN)— Osama bin Laden’s top lieutenant has conveyed leaders’ dissatisfaction with al Qaeda’s operations in Iraq, according to the U.S. military, which says it has uncovered letters authored by the terror outfit’s No. 2 man.

Ayman al-Zawahiri allegedly wrote the March letters — which the military released Wednesday and which were translated by CNN — to Iraqi militant groups with ties to al Qaeda.

“It is in their own words. It is reflective of what they are saying about themselves,” said Brig. Gen. David Perkins, a spokesman for the Multi-National Forces in Iraq.

Al-Zawahiri conveys advice from al Qaeda’s chief, bin Laden, on how to improve the group’s performance and passed along dissatisfaction among al Qaeda members and leaders over a range of issues.

Complaints revolve around the group’s recruiting efforts, poor communication between al Qaeda central and al Qaeda in Iraq, ineffective and dishonest propaganda techniques, and the growing difficulty in moving “assets” from other countries into Iraq.

THIS STORY FROM CNN AIRED YESTERDAY…..

Not to be outdone by the Washington Post in hyped lies and stupidity here is the front page of the Huffington Post:

 

And finally the ultimate fact checker – the UNCUT video of Palin’s speech on Youtube! All HuffPost and WashPost Editors  had to do was look at YOUTUBE to see it was all a lie….

UPDATE: Michelle Malkin and other blogs like Hotair.com are all over this story – apparently the smart bloggers know how to do five minutes of fact checking.

UPDATE II: Bill Kristol is all over it as well:

Stupid or Malicious?span>
The Washington Post distorts Palin on page one.
by William Kristol

Kornblut’s interpretation of what Palin said is either stupid or malicious. Palin is evidently saying that American soldiers are going to Iraq to defend innocent Iraqis from al Qaeda in Iraq, a group that is related to al Qaeda, which did plan and carry out the Sept. 11 attacks. It makes no sense for Kornblut to claim that Palin is arguing here that Saddam Hussein’s regime carried out 9/11–obviously Palin isn’t saying that our soldiers are now going over to Iraq to fight Saddam’s regime. Palin isn’t linking Saddam to 9/11.

NOTE: To Washpost, HuffPost, Lynn Hoff etc etc.. those troops arent going over there to fight the Iraqi regime or Sadaam. Saddam has been out of the picture for five years. Welcome to 2008.

One Response to “Washington Post Smears Palin Again, Gets Facts Wrong Again, Doesn’t Check CNN or Youtube – Even Better, Idiots at Huffington Post Don’t Fact Check Either and Run With It”

  1. Lynn Hoff said

    Yes, Palin does link going to Iraq with 9/11… that quote in the Post article from Palin’s speech, AND her next sentence in the speech… do make that link.

    [Lynn, why do you try to BS the readers and insult our intelligence with these lies when the youtube video is right above your post that proves you wrong?

    Starting at 4 minutes into the video:

    When you start going back out on missions you remember that for the rest of the time your there for THEM to fight for THEIR honor, This will be true on your mission as well wherever it leads you. All of you will also be there for THEM, you will be there in service to the same cause of freedom from tyranny and from violence, you will be there defend the innocent from the enemies who planned and carried out and rejoiced in the death of thousands of Americans. You will be there because America can never go back to that false sense of security that came before Sept 11th 2001.

    It is exactly as we said. Palin is talking about defending the Iraqi people from Al-Qaeda. Al-Qaeda has been blowing up Iraqi’s way more than they have attacked Americans in Iraq.

    In case you are unaware, Al-Qaeda says that Iraq is the main front on the war on terror and has been fighting coalition forces in Iraq for several years now. I know this may seem as a shock to you, but here is a little piece of evidence from CNN that just might help to convince you: http://edition.cnn.com/2008/WORLD/meast/09/11/alqaeda.letters/index.html?eref=edition

    Lynn, you might also be unaware that it was Al-Qaeda who attacked the World Trade Center twice… or you might just be a liar.

    Again all, the L word is not one I like to use, but the lies have gotten so bold and so blatent, and the evidence is so clear that they full well know they are lying, that the simple truth must be told.
