Al Jazeera Caves to Pressure and Decides Not To Help Terrorists, At Least This One Time

Yesterday the Intelligence arm of Al-Qaeda decided not to air a sixty-minute special about the poor state of security along the United States border between Arizona and Mexico. Why might you ask have they deiced against spreading this knowledge to the legions of murderous terrorists that seek the very destruction of our beloved country? The Minuteman Project once again came to the defense of Joe Citizen and through official channels including the United States State Department, managed to convince Al-Jazeera that airing the documentary and passing information to its terrorist masters was not in its best interests and more importantly, not in the best interests of the United States.

Now I know the leftists and all manners of socialists will be screaming about freedom of speech, freedom of the press and first amendment rights. Before they get their pink panties in a bunch consider the facts of the story. Al-Jazeera is a foreign news organization and not subject to the same benefits of an American citizen or news group and when it comes to matters of national security, sometimes, like in this case, any rights a foreign news group might have tend to be thrown out the window. In fact during WWII, under a Democrat administration no less, any foreign press that wished to transmit a story back home had to have a member of the Department of Defense approve the story and many times entire stories were scrapped in favor of national security. If a reporter had tried to report similar information during WWII, they were charged with spying and either thrown in jail for a very long time or in extreme cases, put to death.

If it comes to national security on one arm of the scale and the wants of a news group or reporter on the other, believe me, in my book national security wins each and every time. As a wise man once said, “Sometimes the needs of the many out weight the needs of the few or the one.” Amen and live long and prosper my wise friend.
