|False Images, False Reality
Remember those images from Al Quaeda training camps in Afghanistan you saw on 60 minutes? You know, the ones they played over and over again on T.V. on all the news shows? Turns out they were provided to CBS by Jonathan Idema, the man who was convicted for running a private Abu Graib-style prison in Afghanistan, and even at the time, Special Forces experts considered them to be bogus.
An article by Stacy Sullivan Keith Idema's Operation Desert Fraud is compelling reading. Read It! (scroll down past the Bosox post)
Keith Idema sold a gullible media the information they craved, and they never mentioned the many doubts regarding the credibility of the source.
The same can be said of Iyad Allawi, the current president of Iraq, who, along with the Iraqi National Congress and Ahmed Chalabi, provided the Bush Administration with the bogus WMD claims that provided the Bush Administration with the justification for launching a premptive war for the first time in our nation's history.
Gullible Dupes or Partisan Hacks, you be the judge!
