CNN contributor salutes Marines for urinating on dead Afghans


rt.com

The video of American marines urinating on the corpses of Afghan civilians has prompted worldwide outrage, condemnation from the White House and the opening of a federal investigation. CNN’s Dana Loesch thinks the whole thing is pretty cool, though.

Loesch, the 33-year-old CNN contributor hired last year to offer political analysis for the coming election, is already giving the network their money’s worth. Speaking during her own syndicated radio program on Thursday, Loesch discussed the just-surfaced video that shows four Marines urinating on the corpses of slain Afghans, presumed to be civilians.

Her own insight seems to be a bit more harsh than the commentary that others are offering.

“I’d drop trou and do it too,” Loesch told listeners during the January 12 broadcast of The Dana Show. “I want a million ‘cool points’ for these guys. Is that harsh to say?” she asked.

Loesch, who says she was a liberal until the September 11 terrorist attack, added that she had no problem with the act of desecration. “Come on people, this is a war,” she said. On the contrary, even those responsible for continuously waging the deadly operation in Afghanistan have condemned the act portrayed in the video and all the men involved.

The video was uploaded to the Web earlier this week and by Wednesday had garnered mainstream coverage across the world. On Thursday, US Defense Secretary Leon Panetta said from Fort Bliss, Texas, “The danger is that this kind of video can be misused in many ways to undermine what we are trying to do in Afghanistan and the possibility of reconciliation.” After more than a decade of the War on Terror, the Obama administration has only of late started talks with the Taliban in order to end the operation which has yielded no major success for any party apart from the execution of former al-Qaeda leader Osama bin Laden. Panetta, who added that the video was “disgusting,” is now worried that the relationship just budding after ten years of conflict might now come crumbling apart.

Loesch, however, seems to be more upset with the nay-sayers than the servicemen who might have just extended America’s war with Afghanistan. “Now we have a bunch of progressives that are talking smack about our military,” she said. “Can someone explain to me if there’s suppose to be a scandal if someone pees on the corpse of a Taliban fighter?”

At one point in the broadcast, Loesch is interrupted by another DJ that announced that, despite what the media is saying, there are no similarities between this incident and the Abu Ghraib scandal that exposed the mistreatment of prisoners of war at an Iraq facility. “It’s nothing compared to what happened at the prison in Iraq,” commented her co-host.

“Completely different story!” responded Loesch.

For a recap, CNN contributor Dana Loesch may or may not have a problem with American soldiers stripping POWs naked and torturing them for days on end. When it comes to pissing on the faces of dead Afghans, however, all is fair in love and war.

CNN has yet to offer a comment on her quip, though should have expected as much from when they hired her. Despite previously calling the network “the biggest bunch of idiot blockheads” with a “blatant disregard for objectivity,” CNN welcomed her aboard in February to offer such genius insight as the extension of “cool points” to American war criminals.

“I’m excited to be working with CNN and am appreciative of their efforts to showcase diverse political thought on their airwaves,” Loesch said in a CNN press release announcing her hiring last year. “I look forward to the discussions.”

Current TV host Keith Olbermann brought Loesch into a discussion of his own during the September 28, 2011 broadcast of his program Countdown. In it, the commentator attacked Loesch for saying what he said was “One of the all-time dumbest things in the history of journalism,” but offered a few words in her defense: “It is important to remember here that she is not very bright and thus she has to get a little benefit of the doubt.”

Given her latest gaffe, CNN might want to reconsider their hiring process. For a “real” news network, we’re not willing to give them the benefit of the doubt for this one.

Tea Party’s Geller reacts to marines urinating on Afghan corpses  

Kabul – Outrage over the U.S. Marines video of soldiers desecrating the bodies of dead Afghans has been further stirred by the controversial words of Tea Party leader Pamela Geller: “I don’t care,” she wrote recently.   The video, which Digital Journal reported allegedly shows U.S. Marines urinating over the corpses of Afghans, has stirred outrage, provoking strong condemnation from the Pentagon, CAIR and Afghans. Further shock waves were sent out when outspoken Tea Party speaker, Pamela Geller applauded the actions of the Marines.

Afghan President Hamid Karzai responded to the video by calling the behaviour shown as “simply inhuman and condemnable in the strongest possible terms,” according to the LA Times. IB Times reported President Karzai added he was “deeply disturbed” at “desecrating dead bodies of three Afghans.”

Taliban spokesmen also called the video barbaric. Additionally Marine Corps commandant Gen. James Amos, voiced his disgust by saying “The behavior depicted in the video is wholly inconsistent with the high standards of conduct and warrior ethos that we have demonstrated throughout our history.”

CAIR also condemned the video, but suffered further outrage when anti-Muslim blogger Pamela Geller reacted favorably to the video and unfavorably to CAIR’s condemnation of it. Geller wrote on Atlas Shrugs “I love these Marines. Perhaps this is the infidel interpretation of the Islamic ritual of washing and preparing the body for burial.” In reaction to CAIR’s criticism of her words she retaliated by writing “let me be perfectly clear. I DO love those Marines. We are at war with an enemy that means to slaughter us and overthrow the United States of America. I don’t CAIR that these Marines wee wee’ed on murderous savages.”

Geller’s words are not only controversial but likely to add to the outrage the video itself has created, further damaging how America is perceived from the Muslim perspective. Notably the video will stir up anger over disrespect for the Muslim dead, recalling memories of the Abu Ghraib images which still prevail.

    People, THIS is the face and sentiment of what the jews have in-store for the human-race, and if you have any doubts whatsoever, all that you need to do is read what these people think of the actions of these “soldiers” and what happened in the past once the demons walking-on-two-legs took-over Russia and other nations in the past.

    The past is the prologue to our future, and the sooner that the human-race can finally understand this concept, the sooner the human-race can begin to save itself from THE INEVITABLE FATE and change the course of our planet’s current-events.

    Pamela Geller is an anti-Christ neocon warmongering propagandist who does not know the meaning of honorable service or the concept of a just war. She is a disgusting Zionist pundit that cheers the desecration of the dead. She has a low regard for human life other than those who align themselves with the Talmudic spirit of evil.

    Zionism is like rabies. It causes insanity. Look into a Zionist’s eyes and you’ll see that unmistakeable spark of madness. Pamela Geller’s hatred (not to mention her multiple plastic surgeries) has twisted her face into a garish Halloween mask. With all the collagen in her lips, she looks like an Asian carp.

    Here I condemn the source of problem, I condemn those agencies who hire and let these stupid people talk on behalf a broadcasting agency or even on behalf of their nation. What these stupid women said represented their bosses and even the mentality or better to say the racist policies of the US government…

    Do you think our so-called free press or media would ever broadcast if any speaker say something good or positive about Iran, Cuba, Venezuela and etc?… Do these lady speakers know that soldiers even at the middle of combat must follow the international laws? Do they know that even Nazis followed those laws and never urinated on their enemy’s dead bodies? This is the most disgusting news I have ever heard and the most disgusting and shameful defense by supporters of the American Empire…

    Think about it…First the Abu Ghurair videos leaked of those retarded marines molesting and torturing the iraqis…and now this:- the urinating on the dead Afghanis.

    This is no accident, the NWO – are manipulating our (the muslims) anger to suit their agenda in a calculative, Machiavellian manner. Revving the muslims in to a frenzy, against Americans. Look at the timing! Most convenient ; whilst new “islamic” puppet governments are being hoisted up in the post revolution countries.
    Outrage/hatred of america + new ‘radical’ Governments = a recipe to set us (the muslims) up as hateful terrorists, further aiding the demonization of Islam and justifying the occupation & divisions.

    Yes I as a Muslim was offended of the drawing of the prophet pbuh (inspired by a zionist agenda no doubt) but I do not think that the Muslims reactions with death threats were the answer – I think that a strong worded united condemnation coupled with the fiercest economic boycott of the country hurts more.
    I was and still am livid at what happened to the Iraqis of Abu Ghurair & the rape of the libyan women at the hands of the drugged ‘rebel’ Libyans whom were fed viagra & narcotics.
    And yes, I am angry at the desecration of these dead Afghanis, but I will never be blinded by rage, because this is what they want me to do, i would look deeper and notice that we are being set up and deliberately provoked for a series of reactions that plays right into their plans for setting us up and hanging us out to dry.

    What do i think the appropriate action is? Muslim unity, a waking up and realization of whats going on, that we do not discriminate against the American people, instead we stand by the American 9/11 truthers and demand a re-investigation of the 9/11 and the allegation or justification of this war being wages against us in this false boogie man they call ‘the muslim terrorist’
    We fix ourselves where we stand and who amongst us stands on which side, and an economic boycott until our demands are met.
    This is how Muslims should channels their anger constructively.
    I hope that the muslim community wises up.

    I wonder what the first lady of journalism, Helen Thomas, would say.

  13. #13 by ruby22shoes on January 15, 2012 - 12:57 am

    This is meant imo, as a gesture of deep USA contempt for any and all that the USA decides is AN ENEMY.
    It was my understanding that these Afghanis were civilians, innocents in every context of that word.
    This is what Americans do to civilian innocents.
    We have also seen video of Americans chasing young, 9, 10, 11 year old children gathering brush for fires. Shooting at them & murdering them for sport.
    Americans chasing innocent Afghani children, who wanted nothing more than to provide for their families and to live. We, American citizens have denied their simple wants.

    I thought of Helen Thomas and for the words she spoke while not even working – she was given the ax, canned, for exercising her rights of free speech….what will happen to these clowns, including Bill’zion lover’ Mahr, for their offensive, disrespectful, racist remarks?

    TV watchers on the blog, let’s turn off the propaganda box, we’ve had enough brainwashing for one lifetime.

    @ruby22shoes
    Billzion lover Mahr is a Jew. His mother is jewish and that make him a jew, even with Irish father, they still consider him a jew. Because that what Jews go by, the mother always and not the father. And by the way, I can’t stand him and I don’t think he is funny. What an ugly and sleazy looking creature.

    Psycho!
    Would she have approved of that hideous action happening to her own dead body?

    There is a need for a proactive response.
    There must be an effort to reach soldiers that are still human.
    Those who are repulsed by these actions can help in putting down these Demonic wars for Israel.
    Soon the only ones left to fight these wars will be the morons.

    Ma sha Allah (oh, what God has willed!) sister khadija, that was perfectly said. I think the majority of Muslims are getting wiser, with great help from our Christian brothers like Mark, may God guide us all. In sha Allah (if God wills) we will get to see a new unity from the Muslims that will look like the past one under the Prophet, peace be upon him, in our lifetime. Hopefully, it will be a convergence of true Christians who oppose the hostile takeover of their faith occurring right now and Muslims who understand the Qur’an as a whole and not, as God has revealed, “take some of the Scripture and believe in it while rejecting another part of it” as these so called “terrorists” who have adopted Leninist/Marxist thinking with Machiavellian undertones have done.

    It may just be when Jesus, peace be upon him, returns.

    The Scholars are awakening, though ever so slowly and riddled with confused ones. Truth has been made distinct from falsehood, though few can see it clearly. There has never been justification for killing non-combatants in the Qur’an. The groups who have adopted such practices are meant to divide us and keep us from having the ability to form a true Muslim resistance, a Masonic (and Zionist) mission since their inception. Some how, some way, Allah will take us out of this trial and bring our hearts together again though it seems impossible.

    Dana Loesch is a self-described “jesus freak”. She is also a vicious hater of Palestinians and a blind supporter of Israel.

    She is ill-informed and disgusting which qualifies her to be on CNN.

    God, please save us from the Christians and all the great things they do.

    Loesch and Geller are a disgrace, to the US, and “the fair sex.” re. CNN, they are allowed to accept this piece of garbage, and her idiocy, whilst Press TV is shut down due to some minor infringement..

    It is disgusting!

    This article shows how far the “Synagogue of Satan” has taken over some Americans’ minds and souls.

    I see the human zombies have occupied America’s media and politic.

    Dana Loesch – A mindless and soulless Zionist media whore.

    Pamela Geller – A thoroughly brain washed Zionist mindless and soulless political tool.

    The only human being who speaks human language here is Afghan President Hamid Karzai.

    Forgive me MG for posting what I wrote in another thread here, however this thread seems to have more traffic and i want to be heard.

    This Aipac selected-not-elected Santorum has recently said “‘we killed an American & we’ll kill you too” this is an insult that is going unquestioned and when one analyses what lead to such dangerous audacity, you will find that we Muslims have allowed them to make Islam a dirty word.
    They have instilled in our once free and proud hearts a feeling of fear and shame, and the irony is we have nothing to be ashamed about! Algaeda is a CIA construct!
    In a documentary called “The Power of Nightmares“. Top CIA officials openly admit, Al-qaeda is a total and complete fabrication, never having existed at any time. The Bush administration needed a reason that complied with the Laws so they could go after “the bad guy of their choice”
    By now even the most ignorant is privy to the fact that 9/11 was an inside job, but few can accept that they are being lead by a lunatic (satanist lead) government, because that is an outcome far more scarier to face than the fake boogie man; this so-called ‘muslim terrorist’ who is being heralded as a target to justify the oppression & occupation we muslims are facing by zionists.

    I wonder why we are so accepting, perhaps like the Americans we dont want to come out of our comfort zones, be it mental or physical, I think that subliminally the majority of muslims have succumbed to this form of latent mental slavery and we have shackled not only our dignity but our identity too and we are allowing our lives to be endangered by these people. It is as though we stand in line with our arms outstretched accepting the hot poker branding us terrorists on the assembly line the west has lined us up for, yet we do not demand investigation and proof that will no doubt lead back to them, the real orchestrators of these heinous acts, we have the economic power to make such demands for justice but we cower away in selfish ignorance.
    We watch other Muslims being killed, raped, bombed, made target practice of, when will we realise that its heading for all of us? When its our own family members being urinated on?

    The American people are our friends , however the one eyed people leading their government are not our friends.
    Not only should the Muslim community condemn this attack on our religion and our Muslim autonomy but we should also be supporting the Ameircans enslaved by their own government.
    I recently read this comment that resonated with me “why people demonstrating in Libya are revolutionaries and people who are demonstrating on Wall Street are vandals and anarchist…why when someone is saying that Putin and Hu are dictators can’t see the enslaved population of the USA”

    This supposed ‘leaked video’ of the desecration of the dead Afghanis is again not by accident, like Abu Ghuarib this is a calculated move: Videos like this promote hatred and provide fodder to the war machinery. There are people behind the iron curtain, who are writing reality-show horror scripts to glean the reactions they want from us…..scratch that, we Muslims are innocent of their accusations, it is THEY whom direct, finance and produce big & small so called terrorist acts and they blame us for it – The motive: To pull out the rug from under our feet and Qatar is helping them do that.

    It is not just Muslim lands that are being usurped (Qatar has even illegally seized privately owned land in Qatar from its own people) while it ironically masquerades around the world as philanthropists spending gazillions towards having zion lead organizations benefit from rebuilding countries they helped ravage. The puppet governments that will be set up in these countries are nothing but another setup and Qatar is also helping in that.
    The real target is our Islamic faith that is being annihilated and we are doing zilch to defend it.
    The muslim world is undergoing a contemporary version of religious persecution today.
    Again, one of the countries leading the way is Qatar, first it internally it strips its people of their islamic autonomy; force feeding them other countries culture under the name of ‘reform’ to make sure they remain quiet.
    Educationally; having none other than RAND corp reform the islamic curriculum taught in state schools under the name of ‘moderate muslim reform’ and introducing ivy league U.S universities with agendas; such as Qatars branch of George Town school of foreign service by teaching a mandatory freshman course named ‘The Problem with God’ is one example of the subliminal desensitization.
    Externally – Politically; Qatar is playing a dangerous, oppressive, foolish & instrumental role towards invading & reshaping independent sovereign states.
    The Qatari ruling government members ask how high- When zion gestures them to ‘jump’ should take into serious consideration the role they witlessly play and nothing…absolutely nothing comes without a price when you sell your soul to the devil.

    Aljew-zeera news channel playing the most pivotal role as THE catalyst to the so called ‘arab spring’. Mr. Wadah khanfar whom headed the Aljazeera news channel was exposed as by wikileaks for taking instructions from the C.I.A. You see there is always a fall guy, but who gave him the instructions to do that?
    The zionists are clever and wont let the Qatari Powers that Be, take the fall just yet when it still hasn’t fulfilled its role. But sure enough the zionists will hang them out to dry as they have done to countless others before them
    Sad to say that Qatar is knowingly playing the biggest role by inviting its zionist-lead allies to set Islam up for a crippling blow: Causing enough divisions that it can never recover from and readers would be naive to think that only Islam is being attacked when the entire world will fall prey to the sick zionist agenda.

    If the Qatari Gov think that making contingency plans for a near and grave future: By the setting up of the privately owned company ‘Qatar holdings’ which uses the countries stolen state wealth to buy everything from investments to entire islands, something they foolhardily assume will be their escape-abode for when that morose fate arrives:- Arab spring part deux ,in the Gulf countries will take place, or when Iran retaliates in defense. But the joke will be on the Qatari gov, because remember, there always is a fall guy? and their external assets will serve them nothing when they are frozen by their once zionista buddies point the fingers at THEM.

    People of the Gulf drunk on decadence this has afforded you nothing when you choose to be ignorant, a state that will quickly sober up when the crap hits the proverbial fan.

    These two videos ought to paint a more sobering picture

    @ Ro Sa Yes the Muslim community is wising up but far too slow.
    If we depend only on the scholars to unite us we are selling ourselves short because they may not able to comprehend the signs of the last time or whats really going on, I doubt they read such news as what is being read here on the ugly truth.
    The only one i am awear of who is in the know , is Sheikh Imran Hosein, may Allah protect and preserve him.
    Other than that , it is our individual duty to stand up and expose truths and reject oppression, not just for us but for the human race.

    So that is what Education City in Qatar is about!
    Your analysis is right on the money, many Muslims are also surprised about the situation of American Muslims in particular. Ever since the Cia/Mossad job along with the entrapment and death of their best brithers/sisters, they have fallen silent, cowering.
    Recall the hadith that says that the Muslims in the end times will be filled with love of this world and hatred of death and sure looks like that is what is going on.

    Ingrid right you are, they attack our brothers who defend us just like the Aids virus attacks the immune system, because they know if they disable those brothers they can feast on the rest. God willing we hope and ask Allah that with the entrapment and death of each one many will arise. Everyone must do their bit to spread the truth.

    earlier, I watched a documentary on one of Norway`s state sponsored tv channels, about John Lennon, and the influence he had on the US peace movement during the vietnam war. even then, cops were clubbing and killing anti-war demonstrators, so nothing much has changed. Lennon became a thorn in the side of the Nixon administration, Hoover and the FBI, and the INS, who conducted improper interference into his immigration applications. Lennon won out over the establishment, though he didn`t get to enjoy his NY residency for many years. we need another Lennon, and we need to keep playing his song, “Give Peace a Chance.”

    @Ingrid, did you have to look, I just found out the link worked. When I watch him sing & he’s chewing gum I always wonder, does he have dry mouth? Did you like it? He probably wrote it in an hour – it was a statement by Yoko that triggered the song.

    My daughter Susan won a trip to London 10 or more years ago to meet Julian Lennon. She thought they had a lot in common, both having lost their fathers at a young age (Susan was five & my daughter Wendy was three). Susan has never come to grips with her loss.
