Report: Al-Qaida Was Saddened By Keith Olbermannís MSNBC Firing
Daily Caller ^ | 3/21/12 | Jamie Weinstein

Posted on 03/21/2012 9:51:37 PM PDT by Nachum

When MSNBC discarded Keith Olbermann, al-Qaida mourned.

So reports David Ignatius, the Washington Post columnist who has gained exclusive access to some of the documents recovered from Osama bin Laden’s compound in Abbottabad, Pakistan.

In his Wednesday column in the Washington Post, Ignatius reported on the details of a 21-page letter to bin Laden written by al-Qaida media adviser Adam Gadahn. Though the letter was undated, Ignatius says that it was likely written sometime after November 2010.

Laying out the current media landscape for the now waterlogged terrorist kingpin, Gadahn, an American-born Jewish convert to Islam, lamented the “firing” of Olbermann from MSNBC.

Well that shocks me. After all the hard work he did defending America...I’d have thought for sure Oberdork was Islamic Enemy #1

That will look good on Olbermann’s resume. He’s got proof ‘terrorists like him’!

Gadahn also had nice things to say about CBS and ABC, also calling CNN Arabia "fair".

I'm sure those who run these outfits are proud to have impressed Bin-Laden's media advisor.

I am so so so so so so so so so so so so so so so glad that firing Olbermann didn’t include a firing squad. I’m so so so so so so so so so so so so glad.

Here’s another golden goose served up on a silver platter the GOP idiots will ignore. Instead they will scamper like the cowards they are to defend the media against (what they will likely term) this ‘obvious smear job’ by AQ......

Truth hurts and they can’t have that.

Newt wouldn’t scamper or defend the media. We KNOW that about him.

I mourned also!

I used to be able to piss directly on my TV set. But now I’ve got to walk out on the cold deck to pump my bilge on the flowers.

Cold out there - shrinkage factor!

I almost thought this was a gag story. Love the fact that the terrorists love Olberdork and the rest of the Lamestream. I can see why from the anti American crap they spew.

Keith Olbermann. al-Qaida spokestool of the year.
In honor maybe they will roast him ... then hang him from a bridge.

al-Qaida media adviser Adam Gadahn ... an American-born Jewish convert to Islam

As Mr. Spock would say, "Fascinating."

It does seem pretty clear that Islamists are not motivated by racial anti-semitism.

I guess Al-Qaida took an indirect shot at Fox News by not mentioning them...

“MSNBC (AKA) Voice Of Al-qaida in America”
______________________________________________

I thought PMSNBC replaced the old Radio Albania.
For those too young to remember, Radio Albania made
made the old Soviet Radio Moscow look like today’s
FOX news.
Every sentence had the term “Marxist/Leninist”
included.
I have to confess, however, I have yet to see MSNBC.
Fortunately, it is not available on my satellite.
Neither is Commie News Network, but I do get FOX, much
of which is too liberal for my taste, but the little Marxist
call it FAUX news, so it must be OK.

“ Gadahn hated Fox News,” Ignatius writes. “[H]e liked MSNBC but complained about the firing of Keith Olbermann; he had mixed feelings about CNN (better in Arabic than in English) and made flattering comments about CBS and ABC.

What are the differences between Libs and terrorists, again? LOL

Very true. Newt and Palin - both have proven that beyond doubt. As for the rest, their record as cowards is there for all to see. Their lack of pushback against the media, in fact their embracing of media memes is likewise there for all to see.
