AP: Punked by Jamil?

AP: We stand behind our reporting.

Classification: UNCLASSIFIED

Curt:

From CPATT PAO:

BG Abdul-Kareem, the Ministry of Interior Spokesman, went on the record today stating that Capt. Jamil Hussein is not a police officer. He explained the coordinations among MOI, the Ministry of Health and the Ministry of Defense in attempting to track down these bodies and their joint conclusion was that this was unsubstantiated rumor.

He went on to name several other false sources that have been used recently and appealed to the media to document their news before reporting. He went into some detail about the impact of the press carrying propaganda for the enemies of Iraq and thanked “the friends” who have brought this to their attention.
AP did attend the press conference.

Ministry of Interior Weekly Press Conference

Thursday, November 30, 2006
By Brig. Gen. Abdul Kareem Khalaf Al-Kenani
Ministry of Interior spokesman

Press conference synopsis:

1. Media, especially satellite news channels, must adhere to
responsible practices:

a. MOI is monitoring coverage, and will insist on corrections to
false reports.

b. Unnamed sources should not be used. Two recently named sources
do not work for MOI. Contact MOI PAO for official information.

c. Rumors are rampant, and media should be careful to check with
official sources about information to avoid spreading false rumors.

2. MOI succeeded in a number of operations against terrorists in
Baghdad.

a. The Baghdad Sniper was apprehended, and information gained from
him led to the arrest of 30 others in his organization.

b. Two unauthorized “courts” that had issued death fatwas were
broken up.

c. A kidnapping cell, including one that raped a young girl, was
arrested.

Statement:

This press conference will cover MOI operations from Nov. 23 to 29, 2006.

Before we start the weekly briefing, I have some points to highlight and to remind the brothers that work in the media, especially the Satellite television Channels. We meant by this note to stress the ministry of interior’s intention that we believe in free press and truthful press, in order not to confuse what the free press presents and the misleading media show, where the latter’s intention is to make the situation in Iraq worse than what it is.

The press release issued by the ministry of interior has three main points: First, a warning to the satellite TV. Channels continue broadcasting false news, and based on that we have formed a special observation room to monitor these TV stations; the purpose of this unit is to determine the fabricated and false news that hurts and gives the Iraqis a wrong picture that the security situation is very bad, when the facts are totally different.

After the monitoring process, we will contact those TV stations by presenting them with the mistakes and errors they committed by broadcasting such false news, hoping they will correct these false reports on their main news programs. But if they do not change those lying, false stories, then we will seek legal action against them.

For example, we have some of the respected news outlets that deal with news fast and have a relation with many TV channels and the media in general, who distributed a story quoting a person called Jamil Hussein. Afterward, we searched our sources in our staff for anyone by this name– maybe he wore an MOI uniform and gave a different name to the reporter for money. And the second name used is Lt. Maythem.

However, all of you know that the ministry of interior has a large public affairs office and its official spokesman, and we are ready to answer any questions you may have. Therefore, you should contact MOI PAO for all your needs to get real, true news. Based on that, we strongly deny any relation with those two names. In order to serve you better and strengthen the relationship with MOI, do not take statements that have no meaning and do not represent any official. We would like this note to be helpful to you and any statement made by those persons to be ignored.

The second subject is rumors. The ministry received in a week more than 12 cases of claims, one stating 50 killed were there, 200 kidnapped here, 30 corpses found there etc. And when we dispatched our forces and investigators to the locations, we found nothing.

On this note, I would like to thank some of the brothers in the media who are cautious and take the extra step to make sure the news he gets is correct or not, by contacting the ministry to verify any news through us that they hear or receive. Not only (do we reply), but we also give them more detail than they expected, and we hope others will follow suit. Also, we ask our people, please do not take any news or give it credibility, except from a well-known source with a name and an address that is part of the security ministries, etc., such as a minister or police station commander. Or if it is from the MOD or MOI, the name of the officer, his rank, his unit, etc. It is not enough to say “a source from the ministry of interior.”

Doing otherwise, you will end up helping the spread of the rumors and make them reality, even thought it was a false rumor. This rumor business — if a large issue, it will take a long time to cover it, but the purpose of the rumors is to disrupt life and make the security apparatus busy with other things than its main tasks. We will end up following rumors instead of hunting terrorists and criminals.

The third subject is, this week the strikes we made against the al-Qaeda terrorist organization in Baghdad were many and very strong in Baghdad. Before my arrival to this press conference, I was informed that one of the three who were just captured or detained is Mazer Al-Jubouri, aka the Baghdad Sniper, and his group. He admitted many things that are very important and very dangerous and our forces used this information about his network and conducted raids in the past 24 hours and detained 30 terrorists.

Those terrorists executed several explosions in Palestine and Beirut streets, and the New Baghdad area. He also admitted that their base is in Diyala province, which supplied them with money, weapons and explosives. They are now under investigation and we think this cell or network has been dismantled.

This week also, we dismantled what are called “courts” in northern and southern Baghdad, and detained the two persons who issued fatwas to kill the people. Our force dismantled what is called the Omar network, this criminal network that used to exercise its criminal activities in southern Baghdad. And they admitted many things about other terrorist networks and our forces are pursuing them now, as well as other networks for kidnapping.

One of them, we regret, kidnapped a girl and used narcotics on her and raped this little innocent young girl. We captured those criminals and the little girl is receiving medical attention. This is not Iraqis’ culture. Just look how far down in debasement they have traveled. With regret, I told you that, because MOI activity does not hold in the media the position it deserves, and also to show the great sacrifice by MOI this week.

Curt has summarized the rebuttal from the AP as follows:


Typically they ignore the bigger point here. There is absolutely NO proof that this incident occured. They first told the world that four mosques were burnt to the ground and six men were burned alive. Then when they discovered (via Centcom and us bloggers) that four mosques were not burned, only one was and that one slightly, they changed the original story. They relied 3 sources who will not go on record, two that will. One of those has retracted his statement and the other (Jamil Hussein) has been shown to have lied about his employment.

The AP has no other evidence that this event occured.

I’d like to add the AP’s reply contained sneering remarks alluding to the legitimacy of the Iraqi Government. I find this to be the height of liberal arrogance:The AP breathlessly reprints quotes from its ‘sources’ without hesitiation – yet is quick to question and deride any findings by the Iraqi government. Hmmm…no bias here!

Hitler Jr’s Open Letter to the American People

It seems Hitler Jr is a big hit with the DU/DNC crowd. I wonder if they had input into the crafting of this letter written by the president of Iran?

As a citizen of the United States, let me respond to this ‘letter’:

Dear hitler jr. Mr. Ahmadinejad,

Allow me to quote from two women of your own culture who posses a deeper understanding of peace and Islam than you will ever know:

Golda Meir:

“We will have peace with Islamofascists when they love their children more than they hate us”

Irshad Manjii

Courage is not about being free of fear, Courage is the recognition that some things are more important than fear. One of the things that’s more important than fear, to me, is justice.

Put more simply: Bite Me.

Love and Kisses,
Skye (MidnightBlue)

P.S. God Bless the United States of America – God Bless President George Bush!

Et Tu, John Street?

Philadelphia - It was a somber and sad Mayor John Street yesterday who faced the bright lights, flashing bulbs and hot questions of reporters in the wake of his older brother’s federal indictment on charges of fraud, bribery and filing false tax returns.

Milton Street traded on his last name to obtain lucrative city contracts and failed to pay taxes on more than $2 million in income, federal authorities charged yesterday. They additionally allege Milton Street conspired with John H. Velardi, facilities director for Philadelphia Airport Services, a business set up in 2001 specifically to bid on airport maintenance contracts, and Matthias Schwabe, PAS facilities manager to defraud PAS and at least two other businesses.

Taqiyya and the MSM


Flopping Aces featured on a Day By Day Cartoon
Congratulations Curt, you so richly deserve this recognition :)

In the light of Flopping Aces revelation regarding news outlets using stringers sympathetic to terrorists causes to create a picture of exaggerated mayhem in Iraq; let’s review the Islamic concept of ‘taqiyya’ (fear, guard against):

In the Hadith Volume 5 , Book 59, Number 369, we see Mohamed make a specific provision for Muslims to lie if it will help them to kill an enemy.

Allah’s Apostle said, “Who is willing to kill Ka’b bin Al-Ashraf who has hurt Allah and His Apostle?” Thereupon Muhammad bin Maslama got up saying, “O Allah’s Apostle! Would you like that I kill him?” The Prophet said, “Yes,” Muhammad bin Maslama said, “Then allow me to say a (false) thing (i.e. to deceive Kab). “The Prophet said, “You may say it.”

This idea of deception is repeated in the al-queda terrorist manual. The following section echoes and reinforces the findings at Flopping Aces:


Lesson 18: Prison and Detention Centers.

A directive lists one mission as “spreading rumors and writing statements that instigate people against the enemy.”

If captured, the manual states, “At the beginning of the trial … the brothers must insist on proving that torture was inflicted on them by state security before the judge. Complain of mistreatment while in prison.”

This past weekend media outlets worldwide reported this AP story:


BAGHDAD – Revenge-seeking Shiite militiamen seized six Sunnis as they left prayers yesterday, drenched them with kerosene, and burned them alive while Iraqi soldiers did nothing to stop the attack, police and witnesses said. At least 87 bodies were found across Iraq yesterday. Police Capt. Jamil Hussein said Iraqi soldiers at a nearby army post failed to intervene in the burnings of Sunnis, carried out by suspected members of the Shiite Mahdi Army militia, or in the torching of four Sunni mosques and slaying of at least 19 other Sunnis, including women and children, in the same northwest Baghdad area.

Through Curt’s diligent efforts, it has been revealed by Centcom that Capt. Jamil Hussein, the one and only source for alot of this mayhem reporting is NOT a employee of the Ministry of Interior nor is he a police Capt. Additionally, The Multinational Force confirms that only one mosque was attacked not four as reported by AP:

Contrary to recent media reporting that four mosques were burned in Hurriya, an Iraqi Army patrol investigating the area found only one mosque had been burned in the neighborhood.Soldiers from the 6th Iraqi Army Division conducted a patrol in Hurriya Friday afternoon in response to media reports that four mosques were being burned as retaliation for the VBIED attacks in Sadr City on Thursday.

Has the MSM been punked by taqiyya-practicing Muslims? Or has the media adopted the tactics of this ancient Islamic tradition to spread their own ideology?

UPDATE: The AP has responded to this challenge of the veracity of their story by declaring it “frankly ludicrous”.

Not Seen on CNN……

CARACAS, Venezuela — Hundreds of thousands of Venezuelans jammed a major highway intersection Saturday to show their support for presidential candidate Manuel Rosales, vowing to vote the incumbent Hugo Chavez out of office in Dec. 3 elections.


Shouting “Dare To Change!” and waving red, yellow and blue Venezuelan flags, marchers departed from various points in the city of 5 million and converged on the Francisco Fajardo Highway, where they danced to Venezuelan folk music booming from loudspeakers and chanted anti-Chavez slogans.

The crowd filled the highway and overpasses and extended far down several converging streets while Rosales spoke from a stage in the middle of the masses.



NOTE: BBC NEWS quantitfies the turn out of this march: “Tens of thousands of people have marched through the Venezuelan capital…”

Hundreds of thousands to tens of thousands…is this an example of the journalistic interpretation of the truth?

BSG Notes


Jamie Bamber, the actor who portrays Lee ‘Apollo’ Adama on the highly acclaimed Sci Fi series Battlestar Galactica, has been selected as one of People Magazine’s Internet’s Sexiest Guys.

Michael Trucco, the actor who portrays Sam Anders on Battlestar Galactica, announced at a Stargate Convention that he has signed on as a regular cast member of BSG. Still no word of when the character of Dualla will be pushed out an airlock.

It looks as though in January, my Friday BSG post will be moving to Sunday. TV Guide is reporting and the Chicago Tribune has confirmed. Starting January 21, the SCI FI Channel will resume Season Three of the show at 10 p.m. Eastern and Pacific on Sunday nights.

Return of the Draft: Episode 2

WASHINGTON – Americans would have to sign up for a new military draft after turning 18 under a bill the incoming chairman of the House Ways and Means Committee says he will introduce next year.

Charles Rangel D-N.Y., said Sunday he sees his idea as a way to deter politicians from launching wars.

“There’s no question in my mind that this president and this administration would never have invaded Iraq, especially on the flimsy evidence that was presented to the Congress, if indeed we had a draft and members of Congress and the administration thought that their kids from their communities would be placed in harm’s way,” Rangel said

Guess he didn’t get the memo about
Prince Harry or the one regarding the half a dozen members of Congress who have had kids serving in Iraq.

Here we go again, Charlie is proposing legislation to reinstate a military draft. Don’t forget that Charlie introduced this publicity stunt before, in 2004, and voted AGAINST his own bill when it came to the floor.

A military draft for 18 year olds is a one-size fits no one idea. How effective is a fighting force composed of teenagers who really aren’t interested in a military career and are there because they had no choice in the matter?

Some have argued that a compulsory two year conscription along the lines of a ‘peace corp’ roster of activities will instill a sense of camaraderie and pride amongst these young citizens. I whole- heartedly disagree; the military has the primary responsibility of fashioning highly trained and motivated soldiers. No small task by any metric, and not everyone is called to this service. The military is not a nanny service for moody teenagers who are only there because it is compulsory – this is not what the military does best, and this will only drive the best out of our military.

I get that there are many young adults that lack direction in their lives, a common trait of youth. Is the preferable solution that a government institution should dictate the direction of their lives for a given period of time? How about encouraging them to join, of their own free will, organizations such as these:


Peace Corp
World Teach
City Year
Pueblo Ingles
Philadelphia Cares
Mayor’s Commission on Literacy
Global Volunteers
Child Family Health Intitiative
