Understanding the Enemy
The Volokh Conspiracy ^ | 27 Nov 13 | Stewart Baker

The latest Snowden leak story is in the Huffington Post. It says that NSA thought about exposing the hypocrisy of Islamic extremist recruiters by revealing their financial greed or predatory sexual habits. I’m quoted in support of considering such tactics, but the backstory of the interview may be more interesting.

When one of the authors, Ryan Grim, called me for comment, he said that while Glenn Greenwald was transitioning to his new Omidyar-funded venture he was temporarily publishing his Snowden leaks with HuffPo. So when he asked for my take on the NSA story, pretty much the first words out of my mouth were, “Why wouldn’t we consider doing to Islamic extremists what Glenn Greenwald does routinely to Republicans?” The story quotes practically everything I said to Grim except that remark, even though I returned to the point a couple of times and emphasized that it summed up my view.

I see some opportunity for sport, here.

That is, release some fake NSA data about Muslim extremist leaders, which exposes them as rabid, predatory homosexuals, whose lives gravitate between extreme violence and perverted, drug and alcohol-fueled homosexual orgies.

The higher up they are, the worse they are. So by the time one becomes a Mufti or an Ayatollah, they are so decadent that even goats run away in fear at the sight of them.

Wouldn’t that data be “unverified, but accurate” because “some people” feel that it is true, and “polls show that a “majority believe” that mooselimb beastiality, pedophellia and misogyny are major problems in the mooselimb community?

Quite likely, however, slanders to one side, it should target specific radical Muslims as being particularly perverted.
