The lying leftist Dahr Jamail “creates” two more mothers and their soldier son’s emails in his current piece of crap: 

(A Broken, De-Humanized Military In Iraq

Of course the emails are bullshit propaganda and solely to give a morale boost to our enemies. Jamail abhors not only America (which he usually refers to as the Evil Empire) but more specifically the American military. Jamail has changed his propaganda tactics lately to sound more sympathetic towards U.S. soldiers as being mere cannon fodder (real nice of Jamail). Those that know Jamail will tell you he’s a Marxist piece of shit and works for any enemies of U.S. soldiers. Did we mention he’s good pals with kommie ass klowns Cindy Sheehan, Medea Benjamin, Zanaib (JillCarroll), Raed Jarrar?

Quick background on Dahr Jamail:

Marxist Dahr Jamail

  • BBC correspondent
  • Accuses U.S. soldiers in Iraq of committing many war crimes, including the intentional slaughter of innocent women and children

    Dahr Jamail is a BBC correspondent and a regular contributor to publications such as The Nation, Islam Online and The Socialist Worker. He identifies himself as "one of the only independent, unembedded journalists in the country [U.S.]," to distinguish himself from the "U.S. corporate media." Be that as it may, Jamail is not remotely nonpartisan, impartial, objective, or even credible.

    On April 12, 2005, San Francisco State University (SFSU) invited Jamail to give a talk entitled, "The War Is Far From Over." Flyers advertising the event promised that Jamail would reveal the "real truth" of the damage and destruction caused by U.S. forces in Iraq.

    Jamail had recently returned from Iraq, where he spent several months. Following his return, he toured Belgium, Canada, Turkey and the U.S., advising people about mayhem and misery that the American military was allegedly inflicting on Iraqis. Jamail presents his pessimistic and distorted picture of Iraq to various church, university and civic organizations. Between February and April 2005, he made 14 appearances in the San Francisco Bay Area, including speeches at all of the area’s major universities. His speaking tour was sponsored by Speak Out! – an organization that professes to promote "progressive voices on campuses and communities," and to encourage "critical and imaginative thinking about domestic and international issues."

    Anti-war protests are a prominent and frequent ritual on the SFSU campus. The university honored Jamail with special guest status by scheduling his April 12 presentation in Jack Adams Hall, a 350-seat auditorium that is normally booked a year in advance and is almost impossible for student groups to reserve. Self-described "revolutionary socialists" were present, handing out literature. At SF State, fees for campus speakers are paid for by mandatory student activity fees, yet the university’s choice of speakers invariably caters to the ultra-left fringe of the student population. Ultimately, the university has discretion for accepting and financing the speakers who come to speaking engagements.

    Jamail delivered a 45-minute rant that was extreme in its tone and content. There was not even a pretense of objectivity, moderation or balance of viewpoint. His narrative made it sound as though the American military was engaging in a nonstop series of massacres and slaughters. Jamail’s talk was accompanied by a slide show of gruesome and horrifying images. His stories, however, were not supported by any evidence – nor even by his own photographs. He showed dozens of photos of corpses that he identified as victims of "Marine snipers," "napalm," and "chemical weapons," though there was no way to verify any of this. He claimed that most of the Iraqis killed by U.S. soldiers were women and children, whose "dead and rotten bodies" had been left rotting in the streets to be eaten by dogs.

    Jamail characterized every action by U.S. forces as unjustified. He denounced U.S. soldiers for bombing civilian households (without mentioning that they were safe-houses for terrorists), for attacking ambulances (without explaining that they were filled with weapons and explosives), and for seizing Fallujah General Hospital (without mentioning that at the time it was occupied by opposition forces).

    Yet he had nothing at all to say about the atrocities and oppression inflicted on Iraqis, first by Saddam Hussein and later by out by Ba’athist and foreign terrorists. Nor  did he make any reference to the many hidden prison cells, execution chambers, and weapons caches that have been discovered by U.S. military personnel. He then went on to thoroughly demonize American employees of private companies, whom he referred to as "mercenaries," accusing them of "raping and pillaging" – sometimes "alongside the U.S. military." By contrast, he referred to the terrorists as simply "the resistance."

    Jamail’s website (http://www.dahrjamailiraq.com/) contains the transcript of an interview with Newtopia Magazine, wherein he describes his background — born and raised in Texas, B.A. in speech communications, some graduate work in English Literature. He explains that he was first inspired to pursue a career in activist journalism during the "stealing of the presidency in 2000 by the Bush regime," followed by the "corporate media sell job" of the "illegal invasion and occupation" of Iraq. Most of the interview is a savage indictment of the U.S. military. Characterizing the Iraq War as a "colossal failure," Jamail asserts that U.S. soldiers are guilty of "countless war crimes," which include killing, detaining, torturing and humiliating innocent civilians. He insists that this is all done deliberately and even claims that soldiers have told him they actually enjoyed the killing. His narrative is full of the same lurid imagery he uses onstage: "[B]ullet-ridden mosques with blood-stained carpets inside" where unarmed worshippers have been "slaughtered by soldiers"; entire neighborhoods in Fallujah that have been "bombed into rubble"; and houses where "entire families have been incinerated and blown to pieces."

    Jamail’s website also includes a photo gallery displaying such features as: "The Casualties of Polling," which shows a few photos of men in hospital beds who represent the "hundreds of Iraqis" wounded during the election of January 30; "The Face of War" and "The Tsunami of Iraq," which show dead bodies in varying stages of decay at the Baghdad morgue; "Collective Punishment in Al-Dora," which shows pictures of trees and walls damaged by U.S. forces; and "Living in Garbage," which shows pictures of families who reportedly have been forced to take up residence in Baghdad’s garbage dump.

ANGELA Merkel, the German chancellor, yesterday urged her people not to bow to fears of Islamic violence after a Berlin opera house cancelled a Mozart work over concerns that scenes might enrage Muslims and pose a security risk.

"I think the cancellation was a mistake. I think self-censorship does not help us against people who want to practise violence in the name of Islam," she told reporters. [more]

Well done chancellor!

On a day when much of the capital’s attention was focused on leaked excerpts of an intelligence estimate report that suggested the Iraq war was creating more jihadists, the military quietly released an intercepted letter from Al Qaeda complaining that the terrorist organization was losing ground in Iraq.

The letter, found in the headquarters of Al Qaeda’s leader in Iraq, Abu-Musab al-Zarqawi, after he was killed on June 7, was sent to Zarqawi by a senior Al Qaeda leader who signs his name simply "Atiyah." He complains that Al Qaeda is weak both in the Afghanistan-Pakistan border region and in Iraq. [more]

As FishbowlNY reported way back in May, Ariana Huffington is prepping a political satire site. It’s now slated for debut in November, Radar reports. Huffington [above left, with Eat The Press editor and HuffPo resident Daily Show expert Rachel Sklar] hopes the site — which figures to have a Daily Show-inspired bent — will benefit from the immediacy of the Web, as well as a high profile backer:

Though the new site will arguably compete with CollegeHumor.com, which he recently acquired a controlling share in, [Barry] Diller is a partner in the venture.

Former Al Franken collaborator Ben Wikler will serve as its editor.

Between 20 and 25 undocumented immigrants (illegal aliens) arrive each week for kidney dialysis at Mission Regional Medical Center’s emergency room.

“They have no way of paying for it, and in six months they rack up $750,000,” said Mitch Ladyman, the hospital’s trauma coordinator. “That’s just a number we’ll never get reimbursed.” [more, illegal aliens sucking the tax payer dry]

From the Marxist Information Clearing House

The story of what happens to everyday Americans when corporations go to war.

Acclaimed director Robert Greenwald (Wal-Mart: The High Cost of Low Price, Outfoxed and Uncovered) takes you inside the lives of soldiers, truck drivers, widows and children who have been changed forever as a result of profiteering in the reconstruction of Iraq. Iraq for Sale uncovers the connections between private corporations making a killing in Iraq and the decision makers who allow them to do so.

 Runtime 75 Minutes – video

Quick background on Marxist Robert Greenwald:

Film director and producer Robert Greenwald is the co-founder, along with actor Mike Farrell, of Artists United to Win Without War (AUWWW), a political activist group formed by hundreds of Hollywood actors, directors, and industry personnel who oppose the Bush Administration’s war and liberation efforts in Iraq. Citing the "flawed case for war in Iraq," this group calls for an investigation into claims that weapons of mass destruction were being manufactured in Iraq. AUWWW is associated with MoveOn.org, an online political activist group that has generated hundreds of millions of dollars for leftwing political campaigns.

Greenwald produced and directed the 2000 film Steal This Movie, which lionizes the 1960s radical and drug felon Abby Hoffman. Two years later, he produced Unprecedented: The 2000 Presidential Election, a film that purports to expose "the battle for the Presidency in Florida and the undermining of democracy in America."


In 2003, Greenwald was the executive producer of a one-sided and tendentious documentary titled Uncovered: The Whole Truth About the Iraq War. The film’s tagline reads, "the story of how truth became the first American casualty in Iraq." According to the website TruthUncovered.com, "This controversial and arresting film takes you behind the walls of government, as CIA, Pentagon and foreign service experts speak out, many for the first time, detailing the lies, misstatements and exaggerations that served as the reasons to fight a ‘preemptive’ war that wasn’t necessary. The war with Iraq brought about unparalleled resistance, both in the streets and in the chambers of government….Throughout the fall of 2002, and into the weeks preceding the war in Iraq, the Bush administration systematically distorted intelligence evidence and misled the public in order to turn opinion favor of ‘regime change’ in Iraq." The film begins by misstating the rationale for the war in Iraq and rapidly degenerates from there.
