Rosie O'Donnell, Khalid Sheikh Mohammed
I have not kept track of the MSM/DNC lies of 2006 or 2007 as I did in 2005. But I sometimes read of a new lie that is so blatant it cannot be ignored.
As noted by Debbie Schlussel, Rosie O'Donnell not only downplayed the confession of Khalid Sheikh Mohammed, she lied about his arrest, detainment and crimes. O'Donnell displayed the photo of Mohammed that was taken as he was arrested and claimed that this photo reflected years of torture by American authorities. According to Debbie, "she remarked that he doesn't look very healthy after three years in captivity under U.S. authorities."
photo taken at Mohammed's arrest
Everyone in the world saw this photo when Mohammed was arrested four years ago. As Joe Sobran commented at the time of the arrest - “This face is going to sell a lot of duct tape.” Rosie cannot pretend that she had never seen that photo before or that she believed the photo to be recent or to have been taken after Mohammed had spent time in captivity.
Rosie O'Donnell is lying. She is lying to energize her base - the lunatic/left fringe in this country. She is lying so that ignorant viewers will continue to pressure Washington to surrender in the war. After so many years of America enduring this war, there can be no other explanation and no excuse for such misinformation.
