British Phony Up Evidence Against Nine Innocent Muslims To Influence Results of 2006 Elections
Good news, really. It means the Brits have finally fixed that time machine they inherited from a H.G. Wells estate sale. VIL Muslim terrorists were to kidnap a British soldier on UK streets and force him to plead with Tony…
I think Pitbull misses the mark. A better reading is that the fantatics are those who planned to kidnap the soldier – like the alleged plane plot suspects, they were observed for months. He’s using the airline plot — to which he only refers as alleged — for context. I think you’re stretching to read this post as saying he’s changed his position on anything (and with Sullivan, why bother stretching when he may end up changing anyways?)
Not to say, by the way, that Sullivan wasn’t an ass (even if it wasn’t any worse than instapundit’s “bellicose woman” dig at you…)
I’m with Alceste on this one (though to be blunt I’m still winicng over how Sullivan linked to a post that turned the Ace of Spades into the Two of Clubs on Sullivan’s position on more troops in Iraq-for someone who liked listening to Ace on the radio, that was painful).
He seems to want it both ways
Wrong! I think we know AS(S) wants it only one way!
He’s loyal though (behind you all the way)!
Someone points a gun at you and kicks you and they say that you have to admit to doing the crime or else they will continue to kick you. What is your take? How many of you would sit there and take it and how many of you would confess? Shit, I would confess just to get the crackers off me. Don’t get me wrong, I would hit one of those crackers in the face first if it was one on one. But tourture to get information like this is lame. Of course all those who applaud it don’t know tourture. I was in the special forces and let me tell you, some of the shit they teach is sickness.
