We Wouldn’t Want People To Get The Wrong Impression

CNN covered the killing of the 12 Nepalese using the following quote

Jaish Ansar al-Sunna, which claimed August 23 to have kidnapped the 12 Nepalis, said they were killed “for their cooperation with the United States in fighting Islam and its people.”

But the headline and story from Skynews says”

NEPALESE HOSTAGES KILLED

A statement on the website said: “We have carried out the sentence of God against 12 Nepalese who came from their country to fight the Muslims and to serve the Jews and the Christians … believing in Buddha as their God.”

Reuters and the AP both use the same quote as CNN elsewhere in their story but CNN does not use the quote that Reuters and the AP use.

CNN does not want to say anything that would detract from the whole “Religion of Peace” thing.

Why doesn’t the press characterize these executions as what they are, war crimes and human rights abuses? That is exactly what these killings and the suicide bombings in Iraq and Israel are, why not call them that?

Because that would destroy the story the media wants to tell. It wouldn’t be very effective to support the Iraqi “insurgents” if they are war criminals, would it?

  1. Neither did they cover the carnage in Katmandu where the Nepalese people went on a rampage defacing a mosque and supposedly either burning a number of Arab airline offices or planes. Also the number of Arabian diplomatic missions they trashed. (oddly enough covered by NPR. Now THAT suprised me!)

    The “insurgants/terrorists/islamofascists” are their own worst enemy in pointing out just how crazy and insane they are to murder these poor people who have little choice where they can find work. Instead of trying to call them brethern, they kill ’em. Which shows the entire logic of Kerrys “lets all work together” solution to terrorism has not the faintest clue on how to deal with the illogical and ideological nightmare that terrorism is.
