Media Refuses to Acknowledge Al Qaeda Torture
The Smoking Gun published a collection collection of Al Qaeda torture drawings last week.
Here are a couple of images found inside the Al Qaeda “safe house”:
Well, it’s been over a week since the story broke.
NewsBusters and the Media Research Center reported today on how the media responded to this rare find- an Al Qaeda torture manual:
To their credit, CNN and Fox News Channel ran stories on the declassified material. Yet nine days since the material was released, neither ABC, CBS, NBC, The New York Times nor The Washington Post has run a story with the photos of this shocking evidence of al-Qaeda’s barbarism.
MRC President Brent Bozell issued the following statement:
“The elite media’s liberal bias is abundantly clear in this case. U.S. soldiers raided several al-Qaeda safe houses in Iraq and discovered stacks of evidence about how al-Qaeda tortures its victims. The tools, the drawings, and the photos are gruesome and clearly show what type of enemy the U.S. is facing.
“Yet most of the liberal media are deliberately silent. This is the same self-righteous liberal media that ran more than 6,000 stories and countless photos of Abu Ghraib and the abuse of prisoners there by several U.S. soldiers. Where are they now? Why will they not show the American people what al-Qaeda is actually doing in Iraq right now? Whose side are they on?
I think it goes without saying, Brent.
