Political Correctness

Posted in Media Bias,U.S.,War on Terror by Ryan on the May 21st, 2009

Perhaps CNN thought it was irrelevant to mention the Islamic religious affiliation of those planning to bomb a synagogue and shoot down a US military airplane.

The CNN article doesn’t once mention any sort of religious affiliation, desire to avenge muslim deaths, nor the desire to, “do jihad.”  I suppose it was not an important detail.

    Does it really matter what religious affiliation they were…although with a last name like Williams (assuming it’s not a pseudonym), I’m not thinking middle eastern.

    Before the FBI provided these “terrorists” with the neutered explosives, this group was just a bunch of guys with a common, albeit unreasonable, hate. Based on the article, it almost sounds as though these guys are victims of entrapment. Had the informant not provided the hardware, it would be much easier to view it otherwise.

    I would love to talk to some people who knew these guys and i would just bet that they were telling everyone that they were just normal peace loving muslims, building bridges in the light and killing people in the night.

    the problem biff, is that if i am handed a gun and try to use it “fake or real” it proves that my true desire it to use a gun to harm , your thinking is seriousely flawed. if it was not in them to harm people then it would not matter how many weapons of what kind they had, i own many guns and for some reason i am able to control myself,

    and i would bet you that the informant did not say, hey guys i got a bunch of c-4 you can have,,,,,,,,, i am sure that they had to ask for it , so that it would hold up in court, in the not to far future on of these groups will get thier hads on the real stuff, thank goodness our FBI is keeping tabs on these jackasses,

    Looks like hate crime to me……if it were really a group upset with US poilicy in Afgan why hit a temple? Confused L

    To not talk the religious affiliation of the four is to not talk about the facts. New organizations have an obligation to get the facts out there. CNN this was just bad reporting!

    Its fake. A planned drama to divert recent US troubles again to so-called terorism.
    Sounds like funny. Offering fake arms and then arresting.
