Gadhafi daughter Hana's death in '86 all a hoax?
Washington Post ^ | 8-26-2011 | Elizabeth Flock

Well, duh. It was another case of the MSM taking the word of a dictator and becoming propaganda outlets for the enemy. Happens time and time again.

Just like Freepers taking the word of Dana Millbank, Politico, CNN, NPR, the Nation, and The Atlantic. :)

12.58 This is a passport photo of Hana Gaddafi, the adopted daughter the autocrat claimed had been killed as an infant during a Nato bombing raid, uncovered by the Irish Times from the Gaddafi compound.

Ouch! She may have survived, but that NATO ugly bomb did a lot of damage.

How many decades have liberals pounded Reagan with this lie? I guess they just say “oops” and be done with it?

I’m not being fair to Hana: after all, who looks good on a passport photo?

That is obvious. Saddam wasn’t the inventor of the destroyed “baby milk factory”. This tactic has been around as long as there’s been a news media.

"“Hana Muammar Gadafy” got an ‘A’ in an English language course."

I wouldn't be surprised. When daddy is the dictator deciding who lives or dies would anyone have a set big enough to give his little girl the D+ she deserves??

Oldest trick in the book. Any country that has a news media hostile to the sitting administration can count on this kind of garbage from the ragheads. It works so well because the people question nothing.

During GW Bush’s two terms, it didn’t bother anybody that Saddam with his thousands of tons of WMDs suddenly vanished in 2004 like a fart in the wind. The media constantly bounced between several lines of criticism and couldn’t decide which one to run with. Nearly nobody looked at the schizophrenia of the media and questioned it. Bush’s refusal to defend himself or his policies also helped the media naysayers immensely.

I have become so disgusted with the news media’s bias that I haven’t watched in maybe 20 years.

Just a couple of days ago, I made the mistake of tuning in to I think NBC because I wanted to see if Khadaffi was dead. They showed a brief segment on Ronald Reagan’s bombing of his compound. They mentioned the only result was Khadaffi’s 18 month old child was killed. They then showed an extremely ugly picture of Reagan. I honestly believe these people are worse than the old Communist regimes.

I immediately turned it off and will not make that mistake again.

I remember reading about the exploits of General Doolittle and the first bombing of Japan. The Japanese news were full of schools and hospitals being bombed completely ignoring the pictures of some refinery or factory that was hit.

Yeah, yeah, but my kids are good looking. Glad about that, and glad my wife cheats on me.

So I got a mistriss, she’s married too though. A real knockout. She calls me up and tells me, “Come over, nobody’s home. I came over. Nobody was home.”

Yeah and they went after Reagan even blaming the killing of the non existent Daughter as reson to blow up Pan Am Aircraft over Scotland.

I don’t believe ANYTHING any arab (read Islamofascist) has to say. apparently they all practice the art of LYING and frankly have have had my fill of liars Muslim or not.

From LA Times in 86’. Spouting Qudaffi’s propaganda:

Kadafi’s Wife Says She’d ‘Like to Kill’ U.S. Pilot

April 22, 1986|
From Times Wire Services

Col. Moammar Kadafi’s wife said Monday that if she could find the American pilot who bombed her house, killing her infant daughter and injuring her sons, she would “kill him myself.”

“You should tell Reagan’s wife what has happened here,” an angry Safia Kadafi said at a news briefing in Kadafi’s Aziziya Barracks compound one week after U.S. warplanes bombed Libya. “Now you have to change your mind who is the terrorist—Moammar Kadafi or Reagan.”

AIM called it too:

1986 : (LIBYA : NO MENTION OF GHADAFI HAVING A DAUGHTER AT THIS TIME; JUST THREE SONS) Back in 1986, before the bombing of Libya, Time magazine had carried a photograph of Gadhafi and “three of their sons” but no daughter. - “Libya’s Propaganda Ploy,” By Cliff Kincaid , Accuracy in Media, January 16, 2004

Libyan propaganda overseas at the time had produced a green circular sheet for leafletting in the streets, given to embassies and press and what not; one pager, it had two side by side photos, on the one side a little girl, maybe a year or two years old with curly hair, sitting smiling in a compound with the Colonel, then on the right a bombed out building the bloody body of an infant laying there.

The title said "Daddy, you gave me life. Reagin (sic), you killed me! -- Hana"

And then went on to talk about the attack.

Sheer propaganda. I doubted it at the time. They just went to a hospital some place, found a child that had just died, shot up the body and placed it for propaganda purposes. Sick bastards.
