It's too bad that the state of our country isn't as bad as you want it to be. If it was I could happily reflect on you staying in a secret prison having your flesh burned and your eyes poked out.
The U.S. public has been continually subjected to complimentary coverage of Al Qa'ida by the U.S. mainstream media. Where is the TV news program that would dare describe Al Qa'ida as "terrorists", or the movie which portrays Al Qa'ida members as anything less noble than human rights observers in benighted African nations?
It's time to break the positive PR spin on Al Qa'ida which fills U.S. mainstream discussion.
I'm curious what media that person is watching. Perhaps his tin-foil hat is picking up signals, because I watch/read a lot of news and I don't recall a single "Al Qa'ida is nifty!" story. Also missed the Al Qa'ida movie that cast the group as human-rights observers. Was Brad Pitt in that? I'll have to check Netflix.
These are, of course, the audience that the Republican presidential hopefuls are pitching to.
Hold me. I'm frightened.
