Isn't it ironic?
The story that American soldier's burnt two rotting already-dead Taliban bodies made headlines all round the world. Those evil Americans. Sons of Satan. Abu Ghraib all over again. Turns out the photograher who caught the Americans burning flesh made the following remarks, and conveniently not during the program.
But the left-wing media, does not get into a lather about this atrocity. And I quote:
“I actually believe that the guys who were involved in the burning did it with honorable, you know, reasons. They did it through their orders, or they did if for hygiene. I had no doubt in my mind that they were telling me the truth. If they were doing something that was problematic or controversial, there’s no way they would have shown me this. There’s no way they would have let me go up there and film this.”
Hypocrisy in the chardonnary sipping left-wing traitorous western media? Never.
"...two of the contractors not killed in the initial attack were dragged alive from their vehicle, which had been badly shot up. They were forced to kneel in the road before being killed.
"Killing one of the men with a rifle round fired into the back of his head, they doused the other with petrol and set him alight," the paper reported.
"Barefoot children, yelping in delight, piled straw on to the screaming man's body to stoke the flames."
The crowd then "dragged their corpses through the street, chanting anti-U.S. slogans," the report said."
