"But this leak to the Daily News glorifies the administration and depicts them as caped crusaders protecting us from evil terrorism. And thus, the President's followers love this leak and their rage towards journalists who publish classified information -- along with their demands that they be imprisoned, or worse -- sure do seem to have evaporated into thin air."

"...speaking of terrorists -wowsers. i always figured that the american annointed successor was bullshit - but now we have osama telling the same lie. that presumably means that, um, all of those osama videos are fake, just like we suspected.
Egyptian newspapers are noting that al-Muhajir, also known as Abu al-Masri, has been in a Cairo jail for the last seven years.
He had recently been identified by the US as al Zarqawi's replacement in Iraq and a $5m bounty had been placed on his head. According to the US script, al-Masri trained in bomb-making in Afghanistan and in 2002 went to Iraq. An OSBL audio had also affirmed him as the new terrorist leader. (link) (link)"
