It’s rare when Western hostages are able to escape from Islamic terrorists. The terrorists don’t have Western values, but they’re not dummies. And usually, those who escape are Westerners being held not by hardened Islamic terrorists but by incompetent low-level thugs seeking expensive ransoms only.
And we’ve seen that the only Westerners that are voluntarily released are America-hating, Islamo-pandering far lefty reporters, like Jill Carroll, who are more valuable alive and free as useful idiots filing pan-Islamic “journalism” stories instead of in continued captivity or dead. when they’ve got you, they’ve got you . . . unless they–and only they–decide to let you go.
I’m very suspicious of the story of New York Times reporter David Rohde’s “escape” from the Taliban, which I wrote about on Monday Morning. The guy’s regular New York HAMAS Times reports hated on America and promoted the Taliban. And that’s probably the reason he was allowed to “escape.” I also don’t buy that he was able to quickly find his way out of the Taliban outback in the middle of nowhere.
Two of a Common Kind:
Anti-Western Urinalists Christiane Amanpour and David Rohde
And, as I already noted, Al-Jazeera–the Terrorist News Network run by America-hating Muslims–agreed to stay mum on the Rohde story. That doesn’t happen unless the kidnapee is “down with the struggle.”
A friend of mine in the know sends this, which I think captures the suspicious story in wonderful context:
I was just rereading your article on David Rohde, the New York Times reporter who escaped from Taliban captivity. Is it possible that he was permitted to escape? I understand that he, like the late Daniel Pearl, was sympathetic to the Islamic side, or at least felt that he had an obligation to tell the other side of the story. Sort of like telling the Nazi side during World War II.
He and two other men made their way back to an American camp. Lets face it, there were not road signs, and the Taliban know how to count. A newspaper I read had an article last week about how Americans are arming Pakistan not to fight the Taliban but to fight Pakistani tribesmen who have been mistakenly identified as Taliban. There are all kinds of spins you can put on something.
David Rohde & His Taliban Buddies
Yup. Sadly, no-one is asking the New York Times or Rohde these questions. Just like they don’t ask questions about the Iranian faux-uprising leader’s Hezbollah leadership and murder of Americans.
Things aren’t always as they seem. You need to read between the lines and dig deeper. If it’s in the headlines of the mainstream media, chances are, something entirely different is going on.
Something smells here. And it’s not just the regular rotten smell of the New York Times in general.
