In my original post regarding Pfc Bowe Bergdahl, I’ve noted dismay over how someone could just walk away from a US camp located in the middle of Afghanistan. Later on, I criticized comments from Fox News correspondent LtCol Ralph Peters calling Bergdahl a deserter and claims by the right wing shill P.J. Tobias “confirming” it, as well as other right wing neocons calling for his head, mimicking the words of Peters.
Today, it’s been “reported” by Britian’s not-so-esteemed conservative tabloid Daily Mail (in an uncredited article) that the Taliban has announced that Bergdahl has “changed sides”, has changed his name to Mohammad and is training the Taliban forces in the fine art of making remote control bombs and ambush training.
This is, of course, the same Daily Mail convicted of libel time and time again. The same Daily Mail that pressed for WW1 and supported Hitler and Mussolini in the years prior to WW2.
This rag even has it’s own Facebook Page, detailing numerous alarmist stories it’s printed over the years.
Yet, the neocons of the world believe it’s words. Right now, a Google search shows tens of thousands of hits today detailing, well, actually copying the original Daily Mail story about Bergdahl.
And the neocon blogs and forums are just plain giddy over this “news”!
What the hell is wrong with our country when people believe Fox News, the Daily Mail, and swarms of scurrious other news sources out there as the gospel yet won’t believe our President when he says he’s a CHRISTIAN???
