Blotter: AQ Attack Video Faked!

posted at 6:41 pm on February 16, 2007 by see-dubya

Supposedly a new Al Qaeda tape shows American forces being routed from a heavily defended base in Zabul region, Afghanistan. Fat Boy Gadahn narrates the English version. And it’s all true, except for the part about the American forces being routed from a heavily defended base in Zabul region, Afghanistan, which appears to have been filmed elsewhere.

The only place recent Al-Qaeda victories have actually occurred are in their own filthy little minds. And in our floundering, self-absorbed Congress.

PS: photo on the front page is from a different occasion, when they tried to pass off a GI Joe doll action figure as a U.S. hostage in Iraq.

So, the figment within a figment theory? I was told that ALQ is just an imaginary boggeyman.

In other news Cobra routed GI Joe. No KIA. 15 Minutes later, GI Joe Routed COBRA. Thousands of dead androids. The Un Robot Rights groups have passed a resolution against GI Joe.

Plausibly real, says John Murtha.

No, not the “only” A.Q. victory. They just had one in congress today.

If I learned anything from this is how not to film an video.

Dammit Wade! Ya beat me to it! Good job :-)

Not to nit-pick but Al Quaeda doesn’t have any victories anymore because they simply aren’t, in fact never were, a threat.
After 9/11 they disbanded.
They just exist now as fantasy propagated by BushCo. to distract us stupid, mind-numbed warbots.

The Fox Report was just now pimping this video out… I didn’t catch all of the segment, but I got the distinct impression that they thought it was legit.

You hit the nail on the head there… Instead of calling them self-absorbed I say COWARDLY Congress. And yes, I question their patriotism.

What did Al Qaeda have to do with 9/11? That was just a “propagated by BushCo. to distract us stupid, mind-numbed warbots. ”

Sorry, must have gotten my conspiracies mixed up. Damn Rove.

If you look at that GI Joe picture real quick it the picture on the flag behind him looks like a huge 70’2 ‘fro…like Fletch had in his daydream about playing for the Lakers.

Alden Pyle on February 16, 2007 at 8:13 PM

…Fletch is six-five, six-nine with the Afro…

They sure showed that old pickup truck who’s boss, though.

Sean M. on February 16, 2007 at 8:25 PM

billy is so right!

Bin Laden was really just Mario Cuomo in a fake beard and stolen Motel 6 bedsheet acting bad.

And the World Trade Towers are actually being held in a top secret warehouse in Perth Amboy until Jeb Bush is elected, when they’ll be covertly trucked to NYC and put back on the site of “ground zero”, where their re-appearance will then be called a “divine restorative miracle” by Pat Robertson, and all non-Christian Americans will be forced to covert to Methodism, or be deported.

The Bushitler Super-secret Agenda revealed!

This could be worse than Vietnam. It may be the first time in our history when we lost a war because Dems cowered in the face of the propaganda machine of a rag-tag bunch of thugs.

CliffHanger on February 17, 2007 at 1:17 AM

They lied about routing US troops ? That is a REAL breach of trust ! If they keep this up they will soon have less integrity than the Associated Press.

I hear that the dude with the coke bottle glasses and the zit in the middle of his forehead is NBC/WaPo’s newest military analyst.

SailorDave on February 17, 2007 at 9:43 AM

So… how are these guys different from the drive-by media?

Mojave Mark on February 17, 2007 at 10:20 AM

On the plus-side, at least they’re now feeling compelled to show off some of their OPs, just like the media keeps compelling Western military forces to give away all their tactics too
