Terrorists film themselves killing Americans for recruitment videos; CNN sees their video and puts it on the air; other terrorists see the CNN clip and put it in their own recruitment videos. From propaganda to news to propaganda again, like some sort of jihadist compost. Until now they’ve been mostly content to recycle domestic anti-American agitprop. Kudos to CNN for giving them a whole new vein of media to tap.
Pat Dollard’s got the clip. Click the image below and fast forward to about 40% through for the CNN segment. It’s possible that they’re only interested in the sniper video itself and not the fact that a U.S. media outlet picked it up — but if so, why does the narrator go out of his way to identify CNN?
Update: I’m having trouble getting Pat’s site to load so here’s the clip.
