Terrorists Are As American As Apple Pie?

Yep, according to the democrat run Washington Post. In fact this very headline says it all.

Al-Jazeera, as American as Apple Pie

In a country's hinterlands, a distant region seldom visited by outsiders, a television crew investigates why so many residents are fleeing the area. When local officials catch wind of the crew's presence, they begin interrogating people the journalists interviewed, and pressure others not to talk.

That's where a team of reporters I supervise went to shoot a story about the Great Plains emptying out. When the sheriff of Crosby, a town near the Canadian border, heard about it, he contacted the U.S. Border Patrol. An agent soon showed up at the local newspaper, asking for the journalists' names. Other agents asked whether they "seemed like U.S. citizens."

The journalists are Peggy Holter, Josh Rushing and Mark Teboe. They are all experienced reporters, and they are all U.S. citizens. So what was it that raised officials' antennae?

The channel they work for: al-Jazeera.

Apparenty the Washington Post forgot about the 7 AMERICANS just arrested for plotting to blow up the Sears Tower. Peggy Holter, Josh Rushing, and Mark Teboe may not be "terrorists" but there is absolutely no question they are terrorist enablers. If you're going to work for the newspaper that al Qaeda uses to show the beheadings of Americans you deserve all the scrutiny that comes your way.

These "journalists" are Americans?
When the article states "we need to provide news from a broad range of perspectives and increase coverage of regions forgotten by US networks....people don't want to be seen on al-Jazeera..." And the "journalists" don't understand why. Americans who love and respoect their country certainly will not be seen on al-Jazeera, only the traitors. We should go back to the days of Benedict Arnold-remember what happened to him? All so-called American journalists who work for al-Jazeera should be placed in the same position. Or worse.

I think it's time that a muzzle be put on the media. They are one of the biggest reasons we are unsafe in this world today. We, at one time, were not told by the media what was happening until the process had either begun or was just beginning. As I stated in an earlier comment, we don't need to know everything that is happening. When the element of surprise is taken out the enemy is a step ahead. With their monitoring of all our tv news programs, newspapers, magazines, etc. There is nothing left for them to have to dig around for. It's right there in front of them.
