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.
