Explosions and kidnappings

Found this over at The American Spectator. While listening to our oh so smug news presenters last night talking about the bombings, and how our military was SUPPOSED to be protecting these so-called journalists, this little news item has come to light, though I doubt we'll see it in the MSM anytime soon.

"A series of massive explosions hit Baghdad at sunset this evening. The explosions are now reported to have been two car bombs and, for good measure, a cement truck filled with explosives! They were detonated right in front of the Palestine Hotel where many in the media are housed. The AP and others were notified ahead of time so that they could focus their cameras on the event and record it for history.

Given the front row seats the media occupied for this latest terrorist extravaganza, the TV footage was on the air instantaneously. Anyone who witnessed the explosions seen on TV will have to admit the terrorists did put on quite a show."

Are you aware that these Islamists are also kidnapping civilian contractors and holding them for ransom? It's certainly something you will not read or hear from the MSM ~ unless it was one of them of course.

Here's a sample from same article:

"...a woman in her mid-40s who has her own company. She was kidnapped in front of her house by a gang of between 10 to 12 terrorists. They first beat up her husband and young son who were standing with her, then fled in a get-away car that was in front of the house next door.

The kidnappers held her for 13 days before releasing her for a ransom I have heard of $200,000. Before dumping her out of a moving car, the "insurgents" (as the MSM refer to terrorists) broke most of her ribs with a baseball bat. Since that didn't seem to satisfy them, they also broke many of the bones in her face with the same bat."

And the MSM wonder why we are skeptical at their reporting.

It did seem highly suspicious that some reporters were telling us to 'check out the cement mixer bottom left hand of your screen' before the show commenced. Thanks for the heads up.

I'm tired of it all. I just tune it out.

That was one huge blast. I've only seen the huge blast and nothing else about it. I had no idea that the media were called ahead of time so they could film the spectacle. It's so damn typical anymore - I'm tired of it all, too.

I've heard of the kidnappings through Iraqi blogs. Apparently it's quite common and most of the time the family pays the terrorists the ransom. It's a shame. That poor woman and her family. I've often wondered if Iraqi civilians can carry guns or even have them in their house.

I'm tired of all the mis-information that is coming out of the MSM. I just wonder how long it will take before people rise up and just tell them all to go pound sand, that they are no longer believeable.
