Pelosi, McCain Salute Al-Jazeera… Al-Jazeera Salutes Bin Laden

America’s worst Speaker, Nancy Pelosi, and Senator John McCain saluted the pro-Islamist Al-Jazeera Channel today.
The Politico reported:

At the opening night of the Al Jazeera U.S. Forum on Monday night, White House Press Secretary Jay Carney could be spotted milling among Al Jazeera top brass on the balcony of the Newseum while waiters passed non-alcoholic refreshments.

Over dinner, House Minority Leader Nancy Pelosi and Sen. John McCain praised Al Jazeera’s role as a catalyst in the Arab Spring uprisings before a room of journalists ranging from New Yorker investigative reporter Seymour Hersh to Ayman Mohyeldin, the face of Al Jazeera English’s reports from Tahrir Square.

‘I’m very proud of the role that Al Jazeera has played,” Sen. McCain said. “When that young man who was humiliated by the police in front of his friends and compatriots and family decided to burn himself to death, that would have been confined in earlier years to a single isolated incident, and it was Al Jazeera, it was Al Jazeera, that spread the story time and time again, so that it permeated the conscience, not only of the Tunisians, but of countries throughout the Arab world. So I congratulate you.”

Meanwhile… Al-Jazeera Channel saluted Osama Bin Laden in a special that aired after his death.

Al-Jazeera was the first to release several of Osama Bin Laden’s tapes over the years.
Truly he will be missed.

    McCain should retire now before he is declared senile.

    Couldn’t agree more………………

    Poor Mc Caine. While I respect him for his military service and for what he endured I have to wonder if the torture didn’t break his psyche in the long run. He is starting to approach Jimmy Carter territory.

    al Jazeera, the propaganda arm of al Qaeda…Like the rest of the so-called liberals in Washington, McCain has real trouble discerning friend from foe…

  • BillP

    I wonder what McLame will have to say after the Muslim Brotherhood and their legions of Al-Qaeda commrades take over North Africa and the rest of the Middle-East…

    What a lame-brain buffoon. Was there to be an upside with a President McCain vs Obama?

  • Sasja

    Aw, come on folks. The old fart was just praising Al-Jazeera on their fine journalism. The upside to a McCain presidency would be…..now just a minute…..I’ll get it. OK, McCain is found to be psychologically unfit and Palin would become president. But that is for fairy tales.

    McCain and pelosi should both just disappear into the sunset…you are both washed up..

  • L.E. Liesner

    I always knew that the North Vietnamese brain washed McCain. Wonder how many enemas it took, one or two. When I came home from Vietnam I was called a baby killer, but then I wasn’t captured.

  • AuntieMadder

    Pelousy and McCain at dinner with Al-Jazeera…hhmmm? Ol’ Newty must have been unavailable to escort Ms Nazi to dinner.

  • JimmyT

    Now Newt will have to salute mcCAIN for his open mindedness. But, he will oppose Pelosi!

    Pelosi is one of the slimiest creatures in contemporary politics. But what is Straight-talkin’ Johnny’s excuse?

    This is the jackass that millions of members of the Clueless Party thought should be their president in 2008. Of course, I’ve heard the Clueless clueless advocate Colin Powell, Condi Rice, and even Donald Trump. Some even wanted the Constitution changed so that the Sperminator could run. What a bunch of dopes. No wonder a black grifter sits in the White House living it up during the worst economic downturn in 75 years.
