MSM Finally Notices Online Jihad at YouTube, Google

The New York Times has finally taken note of the activities of those who support Islamist Jihad (including some traitors right here in the US):

LOS ANGELES, Oct. 5 Videos showing insurgent attacks against American troops in Iraq, long available in Baghdad shops and on Jihadist Web sites, have steadily migrated in recent months to popular Internet video-sharing sites, including YouTube and Google Video.

Many of the videos, showing sniper attacks against Americans and roadside bombs exploding under American military vehicles, have been posted not by insurgents or their official supporters but apparently by Internet users in the United States and other countries, who have passed along videos found elsewhere.

Of course, it wouldn't be the Gray Lady without a strong whiff of sympathy being shown for the cyber jihadis:
At a time when the Bush administration has restricted photographs of the coffins of military personnel returning to the United States and the Pentagon keeps close tabs on videotapes of combat operations taken by the news media, the videos give average Americans a level of access to combat scenes rarely available before, if ever.
And the Times completely blows the coverage of videos being removed from YouTube, failing to note that most of the censorship is falling on the heads of those who have been countering the Islamist propaganda:
Their availability has also produced some backlash. In recent weeks, YouTube has removed dozens of the videos from its archives and suspended the accounts of some users who have posted them, a reaction, it said, to complaints from other users.
The reporter doesn't mention, and probably doesn't know, that the "other users" are the cyber jihadis themselves, and most of the videos being removed are pro-American.

2 Ya think? Absolutely. The NY Times has long since abdicated their right to publish anything. Shut em down. P.S. They're losing money by the barrel these days. GREEEEAAAAT!

3 The NYT is the Mouth piece of the terrorist, why are we surprised!!! I don't buy their rag EVER. That's the best way to hurt them. Them and Air America are in deep financial trouble....woooohhooooo Big Surprise. The American people are smarter than they think.

4 The reporter more than likely doesn't know because they are clueless at the NYT.

5 Yeah, showing the American people the actual violence in Iraq is totally treasonous propaganda designed to lessen morale, under the thinly veiled pretense of "informing the public." N.A. Palm said it best when he said the NYT has "abdicated their right to publish" - damn straight! If it doesn't support the president, ban it!

Let's all enlist today and show them we're not afraid to put our asses on the line for what we believe in: Freedom! I hear it's really a lot easier to enlist nowadays, since this anti-American propoganda has scared a lot of Americans out of fighting.

PS. I thought AAR was supposed to be out of business already, does anyone know why it is taking so long? Ditto for the NYT and the Nation magazine.

6 Rhyleh, videos from US soldiers showing "the violence in Iraq" are routinely deleted, after being flagged by jihadis.

What we're talking about here are videos produced for propaganda purposes by al Qaeda, Hizballah, Hamas.

I know you're new here, put try to keep up.

7 Gosh, really, because I thought were supposed to hate the NYT and the MSM in general for talking about anything that shows the so-called "costs" of war, especially the demoralizing impacs on "human life" and "dignity."

8 You really are new, aren't you? We post scenes of Iraq violence and terrorist murders on Jawa all the time. Maybe it's the context; we don't try to insinuate that we're losing, the MSM does. Thanks for linking to Iraqbodycount. It helps the readers who aren't familiar with you know that your heart is with the jihad.

Yeah, that makes a lot of sense. Cause of course you're a jihadist if you consider Iraqis human beings.

10 If you considered Iraqis human beings you would support their liberation from Saddam. Even brown people deserve liberty. Closet racist.

11 That's hilarious, given the US supported Saddam and put him in power in the first place! Here's Rumsfeld shaking Saddam's hand.

But if you're going after me for inconsistency, I imagine you must support the overthrow of the regimes in Saudi Arabia and China too, right? I do, but your heroes in the Bush administration don't. Are they racists? Or is that their committment to freedom only coincides where there's profit to be had?

Also, do you care to explain how killing people liberates them?

12 Rhyleh, give me proof that the US put Saddam in power, or shut your piehole. You are lying, and I'm calling you on it. Put up or shut up.

13 Ryleh,

yes, the U.S. "made" Saddam, yet at the same time no WMDs. Leftwing logic is amazing.

Posted by: Jesusland Carlos at October 07, 2006 12:28 AM

14 Leftwing logic?

No such thing. That would require ideological consistency, principled support of liberation from tyranny, non-partisan advocacy of free speech...

You know - concepts inconceivable to our resident trolls here.

15 Rhyleh, if you want to promote enemy propaganda, you'll be more
effective at it if you don't use those "idiotic" "scare quotes", you
stupid lefturd moron.

If you would like to see proof that the US put Saddam Hussein in power, look here and here. That second link is a declassified document, National Security Directive 54, from 1991. Follow the links and read the document for yourself. Or try the Wikipedia page before you open your piehole again.

Carlos
I never said that Iraq never possessed WMDs. You are making things up. Besides which, even if Saddam possessed weapons in the 1980s, doesn't mean that he possessed them 20 years later, as chemical and biological munitions have a limited shelf-life.

"Good" Lt.
My logic exactly requires a consistent and principled support of liberation from tyranny, which is precisely why I do not support our government when it backs people like Saddam Hussein (see above), or the Mujahadeen/Taliban in Afghanistan, the House of Saud, Somali warlords, or when Congress gives communist China Most Favored Nation trading status. The first step towards reducing global tyranny is not war, but to remove our financial support for tyrannical leaders.

Improbulus Maximus
Quote which of my words constitutes enemy propoganda, if you can find any. Resorting to name-calling and grammar-bating looks like you have nothing of "value" to say.

Generally
You guys sure do love to characterize what "the left" thinks, but when you actually encounter somebody who disagrees, you seem to abandon logic in favor of name-calling and personal attacks. Did it occur to you that not all conservatives think alike? If this is the state of modern conservatism, that's pretty sad.

17 Rhyleh wins!
