CNN Airs Terrorist Sniper Killing US Soldier

CNN Airs Terrorist Sniper Killing US Soldier Del Williams

October 19, 2006

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.”

Are critics correct in their assessment that CNN is full of terrorist sympathizers? Well, after their report on “In the Footsteps of Bin Laden,” there might be a case.

Why did the terrorist feel confident in sending CNN the footage? They did not just receive one tape, but multiple; all confirmed in the validity of the actions that the sniper took.

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.

Whether someone agrees with the war or not is immaterial. The point is that some people have the audacity to kill our men and send our news organizations the footage to show of it. That takes a lot of chutzpah for any enemy that America has. It takes even more for an American owned company to broadcast.

I know that there is freedom of the press, but has CNN ever heard of decency? Do they think because they are “Friends” with the enemy that that will stop them from kidnapping one of their journalists? Perhaps it was just a showing to beat the competition, but maybe the competition has enough class not to show an American being gunned down by a terrorist.

The network should be shut down and the reporter involved captured and tried in Guantanamo. I wouldn't mind seeing a bounty placed on them. They need to get as much info from the reporter on the enemy as possible before they hang him.

"CNN IS the enemy."

True and even more true with CNNI. If all I knew about America came from watching CNNI I would never want to go there. Same story with the BBC. I can only hope that as ad money migrates to new platforms (Internet) these SOB's will be shown the door.

I knew they lost their integrity when they sold out to maintain access in Iraq back in the 90's, but this is revolting. It is sheer madness!

I'd boycott them on the sheer principle of it, but I haven't watched them in years.

If, however, cnn showed a picture of a US sniper taking out a TERRORIST, it would be labeled as the murder of an insurgent and calling for the human rights people to take action. I hope cnn can't pay the utility bill soon.

It's really too bad that the execs at CNN aren't more afraid of their fellow country men than they are of falling ratings or angry sponsors.

CNN is simply playing the role they are assigned in the Al Queda Information Warfare strategy. Showing how capable the Insurgents are is a way of creating fear in the minds of the American people. Yes they are effective at hitting and killing/wounding our personnel. But they are being stalked even as we speak and the ones with scoped weapons in their hands are engaged without hesitation even under the tight rules of engagement employed here.

This reminds me of the CNN policy of not showing reports of what went on in Hussein's Iraq because they didn't want to make him mad and lose their "access". And Operation Tailwind, another shining moment for CNN.

However, they apparently have no problem airing terrorist videos of our troops being killed. They are disgusting, revolting people at that network.

One can't watch anything except FOX. I had to endure NBC Nightly News a few days ago and it was foul. Yesterday I saw a bit of CNN and they were interviewing a soldier who was dissing the Bush administration. CNN is trying to demoralize the public, no doubt about. Their offices should be raided and they should be shut down until they turn over the sources that gave them this video. What would FDR do?? What a DISGRACE!!!!

The responses at the site are interesting.

I served in Iraq last year when the Texas Army National Guard was called to support Operation Iraqi Freedom. While serving, the soldiers had to put up with CNN's almost totally negative view of the war. None of the many positive events made your news program. I often said that "to CNN, if it's not blowing up - it's not news". Now, I am disgusted by CNN's decision to air this video. No amount of spin can justify the damage you have done to the families of soldiers serving our country during trying times. My prayers are with those soldiers serving now and their families. I will not forget your organization's callous approach to this story. No matter how you try to rationalize your decision - you did it simply for the ratings. You had a 'hot item' and could not resist. No, I won't forget. You might as well change the CNN logo to Al Jazerra.

I'll tell you what this Freeper's going to do:

I'm going to notify Direct TV that I what turner owned and affiliated stations removed from my package. This is includes:

CNN

Headline News

TBS

TMC

The enemies of the US could not make their stance any more clear. They hate us and want to destroy our ability to defend ourselves.

I urge other freepers to contact their service providers, whether Comcast, DishTV or most especially Timewarner and demand accountability.

I've been watching FoxNews for 4 years now. When I do peek at network news and the other cable news stations, I can't believe how blatantly bias they have become. I thought it was bad during 2000, but now it's actually beyond bias.. It's stepped over the line to Treasonous!

CNN. MSM

I think we have finally developed three letter swear words.

CNN was a willing mouth piece of Iraqis so they could keep their Baghdad office open - their words not mine.

CNN ran off a cliff in their rush to report on “Tailwind”.

There was an “urban legend” that CNN was highly upset with the military during DESERT STORM for being too successful. Seems they had to give back large sums of money because the war ended too early and they had to replace the higher costing war adds with lower costing peacetime adds. This was supposedly reported by a commissioned military officer on loan to CNN to learn the broadcasting business as part of his future duties.

There were also reports from the “Highway of Death” of news reporters reigniting fires to create a good background.

There were also reports from Vietnam about reporters firing up a hooch so they would have a good background.

There were reports of Vietnam era reporters willing to let their own countrymen walk into ambushes so they could maintain their “journalistic integrity”.

Yet, who provides us with our freedoms? CNN with their reporters and cameramen? Don’t think a video tape or disc is much of a counter to an AK-74, an IED, or a dull sword.

Yes, we have done what was though to be impossible - developed a series of three letter swear words.

It goes much deeper than ghoulishness. Airing this tape is part a concerted effort to turn Americans (and the world) against the Bush adminstration. That is a relentless drumbeat that CNN plays 24-7. As do all the other networks save FOX. No wonder the polls look so bad. It is treason, and nobody seems to do a damn thing about it.

If I were Fox News I would show 9/11 over and over for the next 18 days.

Preface it with:

The MSM feels it necessary to use Terrorists killing brave American soldiers as a political statement.

This is why the MSM is showing it: Roll Tape.

My email to CNN was sent last night.

It was hard to express in civilized words what I think about these money-grubbing, cowardly, amoral, treasonous, sick-minded bastards at the Criminal News Network.
