CNN: Reporting the News or Supporting the Terrorists?
It's bad enough that Islamic terrorists videotape their snipers shooting American servicemen and women. It is unconscionable that an American-based news network would televise such propganda.
Recently, CNN received video footage from Islamic terrorist groups that contained scenes of terrorist snipers killing American service personnel. If CNN's own news crews had collected this video footage, then there may have been a way to construe that such footage was newsworthy. But under no circumstances would a reputable news organization take video footage that could never amount to anything other than propaganda and broadcast it.
The clear intent of the terrorists in producing such video is to demoralize the American people and their allies. Interestingly, instances of such video have been produced nearly from the beginning of the war in 2003. Does it make you wonder why CNN would pick now to put such information on the cable airwaves? Not me. It's election season!!!
I have seen terrorist sniper video footage before, found by military friends on the internet. It is nauseating to watch and disgusting to think they would film their debaucheries. I stopped watching after the first few seconds. The snipers and their cohorts chanting demonically over and over "Allahu Akbar, allhu akbar..." repulsed me. God may be great, but he does not countenance the wanton killing of innocents, including American service men and women, whose job it is to help Iraqis achieve peace and liberty.
A man recently called into the Michael Medved radio talk show and informed the host that his son had been killed by a sniper in Iraq some months ago. They were not sure, but it haunted the man, and obviously more so his wife, that they may have seen their son's death on CNN.
CNN is irresponsible. CNN has been caught up in the wave of moral relativity that has caught hold of the masses of people who at first stand for nothing, and then so often come to stand for the wrong thing as they notice the emptiness in their lives caused by being lukewarm.
In this case CNN is not reporting news (everyone knows that American service men and women die nearly daily in the service of the Iraqi and Afghani people). In this case, rather, CNN's major motivation for airing this disgusting footage is to support the terrorists.
