Reuters’ Terrorist Propaganda

Published by at 8:34 am under All General Discussions,Iraq

On a day of celebration regarding Zarqawi’s death, Reuters schleps for Al Qaeda in this despicable reporting:

Michael Berg, whose son Nick was beheaded in Iraq in 2004, said on Thursday he felt no sense of relief at the killing of the al Qaeda leader in Iraq and blamed President Bush for his son’s death.

Everyone who followed the story knows Nick Berg went to Iraq to do good, to do the work of a peace broker. It was an idealistic act, but it was his choice. The man who sawed his head of was probably Zarqawi himself, if not one of his thugs on his orders. Bush never ordered Nick to Iraq. He was not there as part of the US government. He was there because of humane values instilled into him by his family. His compassion towards others. Thus his father’s defensive act of reflecting his loss onto Bush.

His father’s grief is being crudely used by Reuters to bolster the anti-war left. And people wonder why the media is as popular in this country as Al Qaeda? Maybe if they stopped helping Al Qaeda through propaganda and leaking national security things would be different. Reuters has not excuse in preying on this man’s deep grief like this. They are vultures of the lowest kind.

John Stephenson at Stop The ACLU reports on the same news article.

Addendum:  More Rueters rooting for Al Qaeda:

The killing of Abu Musab al-Zarqawi removes the man who took Iraq’s insurgency to new heights of savagery but it also creates a martyr whose inspiration will mobilise new recruits.

Reuters is doing all it can to dampen the good news.  They sound almost desperate.

    Let’s not forget that Michael Berg is also running for Congress on the Green Party (read, Communist) ticket.
    With Al-Cin-Deh’s divorce being final and having so much in common with Michael Berg, can wedding bells be far behind?

    Reuters could have, and should have, also noted that Michael Berg is running for Congress as a Green Party candidate in Delaware:

    Michael Berg is a major nutcase. While I think Coulter was a bit overboard about the 9/11 widows, she is right about the left choosing victims to make their weak case, knowing that it is hard to respond to someone whose grief makes them, in the press’ eye, inviolable. I don’t feel that constraint…the man is a 100% fruitcake.

    AJ, Captain Ed and various other ”conservative” bloggers need to go to a Home Depot and buy themselves a clue-by-four.

    The notion of allowing activists (nope–they’re not grieving Mom’s or Dad’s, they’ve intentionally joined the political fray) to exploit their dead relatives as a way to set policy, without facing any criticism, is wrong.

    The Aftermath…

    The death of Al-Zarqawi inspired so much commentary that we can only scratch the surface, but here are a few links:
