Got a Wail of a tale to tell you lads


In yet another bust of the non-stop middle east propoganda machine the blog Drinking From Home shows Hezbollah's use of the wailing women to manipulate public opinion. In this post DFH shows that the SAME woman is wailing outside of her demolished home on two different dates: July 22 and August 5th. If you click over to the post you will see that DFH goes to great lengths to show it is the same person by comparing facial a facial scar and a facial mark in the exact same place.

Building on the concept of professional wailers, DFH adds this post showing wailer after wailer. Some of these look like they might be the same person. In either case several of the photos are by the same Reuters photographer, Adnan Hajj recently fired for doctoring the smoke and aircraft photos. The scenes are very similar leaving little doubt that they were staged.

While Reuters did fire Hajj, they removed all his photos from public access making further investigation into the depth of the deception impossible for the public. Neither Reuters, nor the rest of the media seem to be putting much distance between themselves and these practices that are beginning to appear routine. With Jason Blair, the CBS forged documents and other caught media credibility gaps, one would think they would become rabid about rooting this out. I would admonish them to get serious about eliminating these practices or they will be the ones wailing before too long.

    Director: Lights, camera, ACTION!

    Wailing Woman: Waaaahhh!!! *sob*

    Director: CUT!

    ...

    Carolyn, I'm just not feeling the emotion. You really need to tilt your head back and wail like you mean it... like your children have been smooshed by rockets.

    Woman: WAAAAAAAAAAAHHHHHH!!!!

    Poll: 60 percent of Americans oppose Iraq war

    http://www.cnn.com/2006/US/08/09/iraq.poll/index.html

    So if you are not within the majority does that make you one of those Koolaid drinkers?

    One should try to get their info from other sources than those controlled by the Zionists and American Neo Conservatives, don't you agree with this premise?

    Is one of these questionable news outlets the same place the Bush Administration got their unrefutable evidence of Weapons of Mass Destruction in Iraq?

    bloodthirsty,

    Poll: 60 percent of Americans oppose Iraq war

    If your premise is that the majority thinking something is true makes it so, it is a false premise. It also overlooks the fact that at the time we went to war the majority supported it.

    So if you are not within the majority does that make you one of those Koolaid drinkers?

    Kool-aid drinking has nothing to do with the majority or minority. It applies to those who stick to a political agenda (notice I do not use the word principal) regardless of truth or facts. There is a distinction between sticking to principles and Kool-aid drinking, though they are often mistaken for each other.

    One should try to get their info from other sources than those controlled by the Zionists and American Neo Conservatives, don't you agree with this premise?

    The word Zionist flows so easily off lips that have imbibed Israel hating Kool-aid.

    As for your premise without the added name-calling gems, I think one should evaluate many diverse sources of information and attempt to wade through the garbage to find the truth. I can honestly say that I frequently do this.

    Is one of these questionable news outlets the same place the Bush Administration got their unrefutable evidence of Weapons of Mass Destruction in Iraq?

    The Bush and Clinton administrations got their information from the same sources. Both administrations argued for war and both took military action against Iraq because of it. While I think there were WMD or certainly the ability to easily reconstitute a WMD program, even though stockpiles have not yet been found it is now certain that Saddam will not pose a threat to use them.

    Bloodthirsty

    I suspect that one would find that nearly all americans would prefer that the troops in Iraq (and other presently peaceful nations)come home. I also suspect that most Americans do not favor "cut and run" as a solution to be preferred over "finishing the job".

    Is it possible that neither is the best scenario? If so, we would all need to be open to serious (rather than loud) dialogue and sufficiently free from blind bias to hear the other side. Yes, I am probably dreaming the impossible dream here.
