Cynically Lying to America About "Film"

Oh, really?

“There was this private narrative you see in the intelligence community where they separate what happened in Libya from this YouTube clip and then you have this public narrative that you have from this administration.

And I got a hold of this Homeland Security Assessment. It talks about the scope of the demonstrations in the first week after 9-11 and what’s interesting to me is that this intelligence document makes no mention of the YouTube clip. So again, that’s sort of the private narrative but the public narrative from this administration has been that the clip has really prompted the assault not only in Libya but elsewhere in the Middle East.”  --Gateway quoting FoxNews

It's one thing to fabricate stories which protect troop movements, national security, yadayada.

It's another thing entirely to fabricate stories for political purposes, whether domestic OR international.  But then, "political purposes" are all that Obozo is now or ever has been concerned about.

It allows them to "justify" abridging Free Speech.

Jim said...

Which free speech was abridged?

Deekaman said...

How about the negotiations between the EU and Iran regarding criminalizing insults to Islam or their prophet? If you actually bothered to read the post, you would at least consider the possibility that this administration and the courts could abridge speech in such a manner.

So......Fox News is referred to as a "source"....being quoted? OK...

Dad29 said...

Like NBC's 'blazing fuel-tanks', Tim?

Or CBS' "Bush military papers", Tim?

Given the preponderance of the evidence at hand--such as the Libyan prime minister's comments on the situation--we have to conclude that the Fox source is correct.

It's a decision based on 'pattern or practice' principles.

Dad: You DO understand that only the alphabet networks tell the truth. No, really...they said so.

I'd venture Tim has not even bothered to turn on "Faux News" to find out. that's the kind of "open-minded" guy he is.

Jim said...

CBS was not the source of the Bush AWOL papers, Dad.

Deekaman said...

No, they just ran with the story. You say to-may-to.

Dad29 said...

Dan Rather, bozo.

Aw, Deeky boy, I'm the One Percent that balances the 99 percent.

I just enjoy tweaking Dad once in a while, as he enjoys tweaking me.

BTW, he's right and we agree about NBC's flaming gas tanks and Dumb Dan's railing about Bush's military papers.

Point is, you can't trust ANY of them, really....

Dad29 said...

The problem with all the networks is this: many times, they report what they know.

But it was Twain (??) who remarked that 'what we think we know just isn't so.'

Of course, there are some--a minority--who tailor facts to make a point.

Those would be NBC, CBS, ABC, and Pravda.

Tim Morrissey said...

Dad, you don't have Associated Press (which Russ Limbo refers to as "state-controlled AP) on your list?

Dad29 said...

1) Reading is hard.

2) Who reads AP? I get better insight from Calvin's comic strip.

Jim said...

Rather reported. He wasn't a source.

Bozo.
