Washington Post Liars Caught!
Atrios (Via Lew Rockwell) has caught the Washington Post attempting to
lie you into another war.
I had noticed a funny thing to make it into print in today's
Antiwar.com top story from the Christian Science Monitor (http://
www.csmonitor.com/2007/0410/p01s02-woiq.html) while reading it on my
radio show this morning. Dig this:
The U.S. military also issued a statement on Sunday calling the
operation in Diwaniyah, dubbed Black Eagle, a "great success" so far.
It said it detained 39 militiamen and killed an unspecified number. It
also has uncovered "many large caches of weapons", including
"factories" that make explosively formed penetrators (EFPs), devices
that Washington "accuses" Tehran of supplying to Sadr's militia.
You remember the EFPs right? The IEDs that are so powerful they got a
brand new acronym a couple months back? The ones that, as the
Christian Science Monitor notes above, the U.S. government has
"accused" Iran of supplying to the Iraqi Shia militias that America
and Iran are both currently backing?
Gareth Porter explains the truth about them here
Well, here was also this Israel Reuters piece from Saturday which
included the same information.
The Washington Post ran the story, but apparently one of their editors
(liars) realized this might reveal the holes in War Party claims that
these new "EFPs" must be coming from Iran. After all, here,
supposedly, is a whole EFP factory just a few miles south of Baghdad.
The paragraphs revealing Iraqi EFP-self-reliance were then excised
from Washington Post version of the story.
Red alert! Quick! Get out your Pravda-pen brand exacto-knives and get
to work before some damn blogger catches us admitting the truth in
contradiction to one more of our half-baked excuses for war against
Too Late. You're caught, discredited Washington Post liars. From
Washington Post version of the story, as captured by Google News:
Washington Post (April 7, 2007)
"Iraqi, U.S. forces sweep through volatile Iraq city"
Bleichwehl said troops, facing scattered resistance, discovered a
factory that produced "explosively formed penetrators" (EFPs), a
particularly deadly type...
That paragraph is now missing from that Washington Post version of the
story. But you do have this:
"The U.S. military said two U.S. soldiers died in separate
roadside bombings in the east and west of Baghdad on Friday. One of
the bombs was an explosively formed projectile, a particularly deadly
type of device which Washington accuses Iran of supplying Iraqi
Am I supposed to believe that this was anything but a deliberate,
premeditated act meant to deny the truth to people who may cite it as
a reason to not have a war and replace it with more government lies?
The Washington Post is forever disgraced and has been. This is just
another nail in their coffin.
To any Washington Post reporter who considers himself an actual
journalist, why not pick today to resign from that War Party
What? Do you think their reputation is going to get better from here?
