Washington Post Shills for Terrorists

Not all terrorists are equally damndable, apparently.

The Washington Post has an article today on the Iraqi government’s plan to shut down the camp of the Mujaheddin-e Khalq, or MEK.  This is a violent Marxist organization that was designated by the State Department as terrorists in 1997 because of their long record of killing civilians (they also killed some Americans).  But the Post characterizes MEK as merely an “Iranian opposition group.”

The Bush administration -especially Dick Cheney –  loved and protected the MEK because the MEK ginned up information to justify threatening to attack Iran. The Post notes that “U.S. officials credit the MEK with providing information about Iran’s nuclear program.” 

The Post neglects to mention that MEK’s allegations turned out to be crap and were debunked by a National Intelligence Estimate in late 2007.

MEK sanctified U.S. aggression, and thus they were the good guys.  The Washington Post’s Middle East reporting continues its hallowed tradition of rising above the facts…

    Jim,

    I can feel the love over at Antiwar.com between “Darya” and the others. That thread is a perfect example of why the hell we need to stay out of that snake pit and takes those over here who want us there and throw them in instead.

    You know, what is funny that the same crew of patriotards who love to holler about dead Americans are silent when it comes to MEK and, as you noted, are willing to believe “America haters”.

    How I long for the days when one could simply hang out a shingle on K Street that said “Kill Them All With Creative Destruction” and watch the money roll in. Now one has to complicate things by saying “Kill Them All with Creative Destruction but do it with the Best of Intentions, in an Environmentally Sound, LEED Accredited Manner and include a Date of Withdrawal that May Be Adjusted Pending A Looksee at the White House Mood Ring.

    No wonder the Newspapers are dropping like flies.
