Karl immersed himself in liberalism yesterday!

We listened to Air America as we drove to the accountant's office. (Yes, we are one of the 50% of Americans that pay taxes) Specifically, the Rachel Maddow show [link].

Rachel explained in one segment how the US is charging a Quantanamo prisoner for "something". At least three times she would go in depth about how the 'Pentagon is supervising a military tribunal'. Get it? Her attempt to show a lack of "objectivity" on the part of the military. But when it came time to speak to the charges, she would explain the prisoner is charged with "something".

If we were liberal, we too would ignore the full story and eagerly savor Rachel's recurring themes: wrong war - unfair - US is bad - Bush sucks - US is hateful - blah blah blah. Instead, we feel sorry for liberals who let the Rachel Maddows in our media mislead their audiences for political gain.

So here is the missing info [link to WSJ editorial - "Embassy Bomber"]:

Ahmed Khalfan Ghailani is a member of al Qaeda.
Ahmed Khalfan Ghailani is charged with participating in the 1998 embassy bombings in Kenya and Tanzania.
Ahmed Khalfan Ghailani is accused of buying the truck, explosives and other bomb components.
Ahmed Khalfan Ghailani is accused of scouting the targets and coordinating the terrorist cells activities.
Ahmed Khalfan Ghailani confessed to his role in the embassy bombings.
Ahmed Khalfan Ghailani fled to Pakistan after the bombings and taught at al Qaeda terrorist camps until captured.

Well, isn't that 'something'? Here is hoping Karl's tax dollars go towards a short rope....
