Is CNN now doing the bidding of terror front organization?
The circumstantial evidence is strong.
By Lee Kaplan, analyst, communciations director
CAIR (Council for American Islamic Relations) made significant efforts to have Walid Shoebat stopped from speaking at the DHS conference in Rapid City SD on May 11. This was recorded on their website as well as confirmed by the SD department of public safety. Since CAIR was unsuccessful in this effort, it is a coincidence that CNN would fly two reporters and a cameraman from Atlanta to cover a relatively small counterterrorism conference in a remote town in Western South Dakota. The event was not advertised locally or nationally, or even to the general public, and only by invitation to local and regional police forces as well as first emergency responders. CNN has no bureau within nearly 1000 miles. They could only have known about it if they were tipped off by their friends, possibly over at CAIR who boasted that “they own the media” as stated by Ibrahim Hooper, communications director of the national office of CAIR. Let’s face it, CNN takes no real interest in issues of national security unless someone is being blown up.
From an interview I conducted with Mr. Shoebat regarding the CNN smear, Mr Shoebat related that ”the first question that Drew Griffin, the reporter, asked me was ’Are you are being paid $13,000 for speaking?’ He also stated he got this information from a “trusted source.” According to Mr Shoebat , the only time that this amount was paid was for three speakers at “the Three Ex-Terrorists” presentation who were invited by the Air Force Academy in Feb 2008. CAIR was the only organization that complained and made an issue of this. Did CAIR spoon-feed this question to Drew Griffin the “investigative journalist” who was hunting down Mr. Shoebat?
The second question posed to Mr Shoebat by the reporter from CNN, Drew Griffin, was “We called the Bank Leumi and there is no record of the bombing?”
This is is another favorite of the CAIR and left to discredit Walid Shoebat. This question actually discredits the people who ask it because the actual branch was shut down in 1996 because it was in the newly created Palestinian Authority. Another spoon fed question by CAIR?
While CNN may have denied on air that they have any connection to CAIR in running the story, we have an impeachable source that confirmed to us that CNN did cooperate with CAIR on this smear job. We would love to identify this person but it would compromise his work on counterterrorism.
CAIR, we found out, has been engaging in a massive email campaign against Walid Shoebat and sending the link of the story by CNN to all conservative and Christian media outlets in order to try and silence Mr. Shoebat’s voice. The source of this information was from the Aramaic Broadcast Network, a Arab Christian TV station that regularly invites Walid Shoebat to come on their programs.
CNN may not believe Shoebat’s story, but Mr. Shoebat does come from Bethlehem as they interviewed his fourth cousin, he does speak fluent Arabic with a Palestinian accent and lived in an area where Jew hatred is predominant; so even if CNN does not believe his story they might wish to listen to someone who can bring some real insight to the issues of Islam and the mindset of people who cause man made disaste.
Let’s face it. CNN has become the voice of the Arab despostic regimes in the world.
