CNN Totaly In Bed With Islamic Terrorists ~ DESPICABLE!!

Saturday October 21, 2006

Please scroll down for update to this post.

CNN aired a terrorist sniper killing a US soldier. They blacked out the screen when the bullet hit, but that did not stop the sound or description that they went on to share.

According to CNN, “The graphic video of 10 sniper attacks was obtained by CNN -- through intermediaries --from the Islamic Army of Iraq, one of the most active insurgent organizations in Iraq.”

Video on CNN shows snipers' chilling work in Iraq

(CNN) -- Chilling scenes from a videotape made by insurgents show the work of snipers in Iraq, targeting and killing American troops, taking them down with a single bullet from a high-powered rifle.

The graphic video of 10 sniper attacks was obtained by CNN -- through intermediaries -- from the Islamic Army of Iraq, one of the most active insurgent organizations in Iraq.

In one scene, U.S. soldiers mingle among Iraqi civilians on a city street as a U.S. Humvee with a gunner in its turret stands guard nearby.

From a distance, possibly hundreds of yards away, a sniper watches for his opportunity to strike as a fellow insurgent operates a camera to capture the video for propaganda purposes.

In the video, street sounds mix with male Arabic voices as the sniper and his spotter talk off-camera.

"People are around them," warns the spotter, who seems to be operating the video camera. "Want me to find another place?"
"No, no," comes the reply, "give me a moment."

And then, the crack of gunfire is heard and the soldier in the turret slumps forward.

"Allahu Akbar (God is Great)!" is the exclamation as the sniper's vehicle starts and they slip away.

The deadly tactic is one the U.S. military also uses to take out insurgents.

Retired Gunnery Sgt. Jack Coughlin was one of the top U.S. Marine Corps snipers in Iraq and has written a book about his experiences -- "Shooter: The Autobiography of the Top-Ranked Marine Sniper."

"I have over 60 kills," he told CNN's Gary Tuchman. "We seek out the enemy and eliminate them with precision fire."

Tuchman used Coughlin's critical eye to analyze the Islamic Army of Iraq video.

Coughlin said the time lapse between the sound of the shot and the man getting hit indicates the gunfire is coming from about 300 to 500 yards away and probably from a higher angle.

But Couglin said he's sure this team of at least three people has been trained well because they're so calm.

"They have their stuff wired," he said. "They know what they're doing." (Watch the ex-Marine describe snipers' deadly work -- 2:46)

The 20-year Marine veteran said the kind of body armor worn by troops in combat can be effective against a sniper's bullet, and he added that there are other ways to defend against the horrifying attacks.

"The worst enemy of a sniper is another sniper," Coughlin said. "Our snipers are hunting these guys -- I guarantee you this is happening as we speak."

Coughlin added that, in many cases, the best defense is a good offense.

Lawmaker Outraged by Sniper Footage on CNN
SAN DIEGO — CNN has become "the publicist for an enemy propaganda film" by broadcasting a video showing an insurgent sniper in Iraq apparently killing an American soldier, the chairman of the House Armed Services Committee said here Friday.

Rep. Duncan Hunter (R-El Cajon) called for the Pentagon to oust any CNN reporter embedded with U.S. troops in Iraq.

"I think Americans like to think we're all in this together," Hunter said. "The average American Marine or soldier has concluded after seeing that film that CNN is not on their side."

Another UPDATE:
Armed Services Committee Chairman Calls For Removal of CNN’s Embedded Reporters

CNN recently aired videos supplied by terrorists inside Iraq showing snipers attacking American soldiers. As a result of this outrageous behavior, Rep. Duncan Hunter (R-California), chairman of the House Armed Services Committee, has asked for all of CNN’s reporters currently embedded with U.S. military units be removed.

The chairman of the House Armed Services Committee asked the Pentagon on Friday to remove CNN reporters embedded with U.S. combat troops, saying the network's broadcast of a video showing insurgent snipers targeting U.S. soldiers was tantamount to airing an enemy propaganda film.

The tape, which came to the network through contact with an insurgent leader, was aired Wednesday night on "Anderson Cooper 360" and repeated Thursday.

The article continued:

In a letter to Defense Secretary Donald Rumsfeld, Rep. Duncan Hunter, R-Calif., wrote: "CNN has now served as the publicist for an enemy propaganda film featuring the killing of an American soldier."

The letter was also signed by San Diego-area Republican congressmen Darrell Issa and Brian Bilbray.

"This is nothing short of a terrorist snuff film," Bilbray said at a press conference held in San Diego.

CNN officials defended their decision to air the footage. ( GRRRRRRRRRRRRR)

"Our responsibility is to report the news," said Laurie Goldberg, a CNN spokeswoman. "As an organization we stand by our decision and respect the rights of others to disagree with it."

Wild Thing's comment.......

Oust them is the least they should do, charge them with aiding and abetting the enemy with use of known propaganda, they have always been the terrorist sympathizer. In WW2 if if there had been a cable news services like CNN we might all be speaking German today.

Democrat mind set.......Americans too sensitive to see videos of 911 but not to see Muslims pigs shoots soldiers. These cowards were afraid to show the Danish cartoons, even though it was the biggest story in that news cycle. Even though the story was HUGE!

The terrorists went and created that video for the whole purpose of propagandizing their viewpoint. So what do the total dopes at CNN do, they BROADCAST it! One of CNN’s analysts called the sniper attacks the most effective thing they have seen. “The deadly tactic is one the U.S. military also uses to take out insurgents”, according to CNN. They seem be telling them how good they are at using our strategies to kill our men.

I haven't been this angry in a very long time. An American soldier died for these bastards' "news value." What "value" is that, precisely? What does CNN "value" that can excuse this utter moral degeneracy? Is it the sort of moral equivalency that sees no difference between the son of a bitch driving a car bomb into a crowd and the Marine who dies to try to stop him? Is it "all the same thing" when looked at from the lofty heights of an editorial desk in Atlanta? What sort of a sordid, miserable excuse for a human being could manage to justify this outrageous glorification of murder and have the spit-shined brass balls to try to pass it off as "news value"?

This is from one of the soldiers that is in country right now regarding the CNN embedded reporters.......

"I hated those weasly little bastards. They were a huge hindrence on patrol. One more unarmed idiot to have to look out for. They would do incredibly stupid stuff to get footage in a firefight. I finally told my guys not to provide covering fire for then any more. Just let the f***er get his ass shot. One of them had an AK round go clean through his camera. He could not stop shaking for about an hour. Inside, we were lauging our asses off at him."

Update: October 24, 2006

Some of our awesome snipers in country in today's war with Islam. Faces blurred out for their protection.

Legendary snipers became the role models. Snipers such as Gunnery Sgt. Carlos Hathcock, a Marine sniper in Vietnam with 98 confirmed kills, Sgt. 1st Class. Randy Shugart and Master Sgt. Gary Gordon, two Delta Force snipers, who died in Somalia in 1993 trying to rescue a downed crew of a MH-60 Black Hawk during the battle of Mogadishu.

As you know I am a big supporter of our military and when I started this blog one of the links I wanted to make sure I had in my sidebar was a place online called It has been there since this blog began on September 21, 2005.

I am so pleased to see others supporting the efforts of the especially now after what CNN has done in their aiding the enemy with their showing of the video snuff film sent to them by the enemy. They just had to show it and not once but over and over again. We all wrote letters to CNN, phoned CNN (404-827-2600) and showed our disgust for what they have done and the stand they have taken to side with the enemy.

Here are some places at their site:


Items needed

Letters and photos from our snipers


Two years ago I ordered this dog tag from I keep it on my key chain. I loved it so much I ordered more to give as gifts to the troops in their care packages. I have ordered other things and donated, this is just one of the items they have.

From personal experience, don't let any media representative anywhere near soldiers in the field. They are not your friend and do not deserve any protection or cooperation. I wholeheartedly agree with that last assessment even to the point of taking them out before they can do any harm.

Posted by: Jack at October 21, 2006 02:04 PM

I was so enraged! I don't have much good to say about CNN to begin with but this was so over the top.
I emailed them ~ you betcha!
My blood is still boiling!

Here's what I don't get. When a 'video' is delivered to al jazeera and is aired, there is a plausible explanation as to why we don't know the source. So, how is it when we are at war, a US news organization can accept a video from the enemy without the that person being held and at least questioned as to the origin of said video?

You notice it wasn't delivered to FOX. The enemy knows who there friends are. That is the reason they are also urging voters to vote Democratic in the upcoming midterm election.

Accepting this propaganda from the enemy is wrong on so many levels it boggles my mind how it is allowed to continue. CNN can't say that this was an editorial decision at the highest levels and get away with that excuse.

This is treason, this is collaberating with the enemy, this is giving aid and comfort to the enemy, this is perverse, this is criminal, this is immoral, this is self serving, this is using our soldiers sacrifices to further CNN's liberal political agenda.

It has been apparent for a loooonnng time that CNN is in bed with the enemy. That is the reason they, so often, are the ONLY network allowed to cover conflicts inside enemy territory. Remember Peter Arnett during the first Gulf war?

THIS IS NEWS. How a purported "NEWS" organization has become a blatant tool of the enemy. There should be front page coverage of this, full investigations as to how CNN's "editorial" decisions are made, and how CNN is allowed to maintain an open conduit with the enemy.

SPONSORS,........Call, write, email, fax the sponsors of CNN. Let them know your outrage at the continuous assault on fair journalism and treasoness behavior of CNN. Contact CNN and demand the firing of the pukes that try to force feed the American people with their demented agenda.

Nothing will change unless we change it. Katie Couric is learning that lesson over at CBS. It's time to sight in CNN and advocate a complete boycott of that network and theor sponsors.

If the election turns out favorable for the democrats, CNN will take much of the credit. When the war is lost, CNN will assign the blame to the Republicans. They continually burn the candle at both ends. It's about time they get burned.

Jack, I agree.

I will never agree to the press in a war. The military has guys that can do it and it is not necessary to have the media there to mess things up.

Posted by: Wild Thing at October 21, 2006 06:21 PM

YankeeMom, I emailed CNN too. Glad you did too.

Posted by: Wild Thing at October 21, 2006 06:22 PM

Billy, I sure do remember Peter Arnett and what happened. Thanks for mentioning it. We must never forget these things ever.

I agree it is important to write letters.

Posted by: Wild Thing at October 21, 2006 06:26 PM

In my opinion any reporter from any US news media that is with the enemy while he is killing Americans and does not attempt to stop it, is the enemy and should be killed on sight, that simple, no questions, if’s, an’s or butts, or excuses not to. Cancel their ticket. As for showing film given to them of American's being killed the way that CNN did, they are taitiors to the Republic and should be tried as same. Start with top management and work your way down.

John 5 AMEN I agree!

Good article folks-- I'm just browsing the internet finding blogs on this subject and voicing my opinion that CNN is the scum of the earth and deserves to lose their broadcast liscence over this. Thank you for bringing this despicable topic to the attention of the public to let them know how derranged and vile CNN really is! CNN thinks the fact that some emailers with equally foul ethics agreeing with them gives them liscence to post their garbage on the internet. CNN will justify selling out American soldiers and their families with a gusto that turns the stomach every time!

Hi Nazareth, nice to meet you. Thanks and thank you for the link.

Posted by: Wild Thing at October 22, 2006 02:15 AM

Thanks Wildthing, this topic really got my blood boiling & I don't get too riled up over things really- I do have strong opinions, but somethign like what CNN did was simply over the line of moral and ethical decency, and what makes me even more angry is their denial that they did anythign wrong. I don't so much mind when news organizations have liberal ideology, as most all opinions have some merrit to them, but when they resort to despicable tactics to advance their anti-Bush agenda, that's going too far. I really wish liberal media would jusat stick to the news and opine without all the angry vitriol, but that's asking too much I guess.

Posted by: Nazareth at October 22, 2006 12:47 PM

This rhetoric coming from the same Neo-con-artists who posted the RNC commercial called "The Stakes" which is a pro-Al Qaeda promotional video at no cost to the terrorists, designed to promote terrorism and incite terrorism for votes. Bin Laden and the Al Qaeda must truly appreciate that the RNC is making their terror videos for them. THATS DESPICABLE! For God's sake you fools, think for yourselves for a change will ya?

Syntax, your conspiracy theory does not work, try another one.

First of all all the Republican party does not own CNN, and all CNN had to do was say NO, they even could have announced they had a video if they wanted to in some sick way BRAG about an in with the terrorists. Then all they had to do after that was make a statement..such as...... " we are not going to air any of these snuff films from the Islamic's, we support our troops in harms way and will not give in to the seeking of help with the propaganda of the followers of Islam."

See how easy that would have been. But they just couldn't do it. Nope, nada it isn't in their DNA to say that, think it or make such a statement.

CNN is very much on the side of our enemy, sad, outrageous and true.

Well so much for fair and balanced. I sent CNN
an e-mail saying they were aL Jazeeras lap dog
and if that wasn't the case then show som tape
of our Snipers at work...So much for the Clinton
News Network and for Syntax Liberals go through
life with Knee pads,Chap stick and Rectal lube
always on the take and never giving anything in

Wow, what an interesting compendium of willfully blind redneckery you've got going on here. It reminds me of that passage in the Bible where Jesus is speaking to Benfolio and he clearly says;

-"Mine son, thou must always remember to be a racist, intolerant asshole who cheers for war, death and suffering, for yours are the footsteps that will shape the world. Also, gay people are fags. Amen."

You guys are great. Anyway, just wanted to say hi, but I've got to go because Osama Bin Laden and I are performing a flag-burning, inter-racial abortion in twenty minutes and he hates it when I'm late. Later.

Once in a while I watch CNN for a short while just to see what and how they are reporting. It only takes a short while before something anti-American pops up on their broadcast. I just don't understand why so many well off Americans want to destroy the very cause of their prosperity and freedom.

Posted by: TomR at October 24, 2006 11:59 AM

Lol- Syntax by golly- you've hit onto something here- Brilliant! The GOP owns CNN and runs stories 24/7 that hurt the Bush administration and causes the public to turn against President Bush- They've hired Keith Olberman to attack the President and malign the presidency in a viscious manner that has poll numbers dropping despite the fact that the economy is growing, the deficit is falling etc.

President Bush hired CNN to show a terrorist snuff film to undermine his war on terror- absolutely brilliant.

Think for ourselves? O.K Mr DNC talking points- will do.

I have to go back to the quote from one of our snipers when he was asked by a reporter if he "felt anything when he shot an insurgent".
The sniper replied, "Yes, sir... recoil".
I usually visit the CNN website during the day to see what they're up to. I will never go there again. I can't wait until someone in our government gets the balls to start charging these orgainzations and individuals with treason.

I know you think you're funny, and maybe even clever, but you're just a hole in the air, a posturing, self-regarding dickhead. Maybe your tired irony and buffooneries get you dates with the frosh at the student center, or at the juice bar when you stick out your tongue and pretend to be a sex organ, but around here you need something more. We aren't your failed, disappointned parents, so we don't need to patronize you, you putz. Work on those lefty cliches a little more, jackass. You left a few out; maybe the ganglion inside your skull can handle it.
