Imagine if President George W. Bush or senior members of his administration asserted that they had the power to assassinate any person, including American citizens on American soil, because they merely suspected them of being involved in a terrorist plot.
Now, imagine that they went a step further and claimed that this broad new power was not subject to any oversight by Congress or the judiciary or international law.
A lot of left-wingers would be apoplectic. And they would be right.
Hollywood‘s war on America may have claimed its first two casualties with the murder of two US airmen in Germany by a Muslim terrorist who was inspired by the Koran, and apparently by a clip from Brian DePalma‘s movie, Redacted.
This isn’t the first time the news-entertainment complex has manufactured its own fake atrocity porn with ugly results. In 2005, Newsweek’s Michael Isikoff ran a fake report about Gitmo personnel flushing a Koran down the toilet.
Muslims reacted with their usual violent restraint, rioting, burning and generally running amok. One of the perpetrators of the 2005 London bombing was reportedly influenced by that story. That would make it the first news article to have killed over 50 people.
