- HOW CONVENIENT. Personally, I think this is evidence that Osama is dead, and that the CIA is supplying these tapes for purposes of its own. (Not that there's anything wrong with that).
Glenn actually thinks the tape is a fake from the CIA? But he seems to think its okay for a US government agency to deceive us into thinking that bin Laden and Hussein are allied?
Why does Mr. Reynolds approve of his government lying to him?
Glenn links to one of his own columns on MSNBC (the "wrong" link) in which he says: "Of course, in wartime, everyone lies."
Yes Mr. Reynolds. They do. But you forget one thing: we are not at war yet
Lying in war is a useful tactic that can deceive the enemy into thinking you are one place when you are, in fact, in another. The point is that it is something you do to your enemy.
It is not
something you do to your own people. That is, you don't do it unless you consider your own people to be the enemy.
- But now that he's admitting a "partnership" with Iraq, it's going to be tough for people who've been saying "you can't even catch Osama" to deny this evidence. Heh.
I can barely make sense out of this sentence. The best I can make of it is that Glenn thinks that if this tape is genuine then it proves that bin Laden and Hussein are in cahoots. Which, as I described in this post
, is nonsense and only proves that Mr. Reynolds has no understanding of the Islamic mind.
