Post Hannity crops clip to claim Obama "decided to give 9-11 sympathizers a voice" in Cair

Quote:
On the June 4 edition of his Fox News show, Sean Hannity stated that in his June 4 speech in Cairo, President Obama "decided to give 9-11 sympathizers a voice on the world stage," then aired a cropped video clip of Obama saying, "I am aware that there are still some that would question or even justify the events of 9-11." However, the context of Obama's comments makes clear that Obama was condemning those who would "justify the events of 9-11"; immediately following the clip Hannity showed, Obama stated:
... But let us be clear: Al Qaeda killed nearly 3,000 people on that day. The victims were innocent men, women and children from America and many other nations who had done nothing to harm anybody. And yet al Qaeda chose to ruthlessly murder these people, claimed credit for the attack, and even now states their determination to kill on a massive scale. They have affiliates in many countries and are trying to expand their reach. These are not opinions to be debated; these are facts to be dealt with.

Good ol' Hannity.
Eternally failing in ethics and honest representation....

I love these two comments on this story-
"Hannity makes me wish stupidity were painful, so he would have some incentive to wise up. "

"Or lying caused severe, chronic, untreatable rectal itch. That would work, too."

Unfortunately..regaining power trumps ethics and honest representation.No,they won't admit it but that is job #1 You gotta do what you gotta do to save the nation from "socialism"..

To them...ends justify the means...

Be careful...you may also end up "hanitized"....

I have no defense for this. Saying he was aware of some(but not directly rebuking) who believed the attack on 9/11 was 'questionable or justified' just isn't in and of itself a horrible thing. He said the killings were to be 'dealt with', but never said that those who 'question or justify' 9/11 are flat out wrong. He should be telling them that they're wrong to question or justify, not just blaming Al-Qaeda. To not do so indeed 'gives them a voice on the world stage' that he refuses to rebuke.

But let me be clear that none of you ever admit that of mainstream journalists.

Katie Couric at Princeton, anyone?

Nah, none of you will condemn her or admit mainstream media bias, will you.

****ing left wing hypocrites...

I look at what he said above.
"innocent men, women and children from America and many other nations who had done nothing to harm anybody"

I realize you hate Obama, but you're full of crap on this issue.
If Obama walked on water, you'd complain he left foot-print pollution.

Just out of curiousity, in your mind do you really think that saying al Qaeda murdered innocent men, women, and children who had done nothing to harm anybody is not a direct refutation?
If I look up a story about a robber who killed a kid, and I point out that the robber murdered an innocent child who had done nothing to harm anybody, would it then be your reasoned and rational response to ask me why I didn't rebuke the robber's actions?

I do not hate Obama, I disagree with plenty of his decisions and actions.

You're not getting it. He says what Al Qaeda did was wrong but does not say that those who question or justify 9/11 are wrong.

In your simpler scenario, it would be like saying the murderer was wrong but not saying those who think the muderer was justified are wrong.

He said al Qaeda MURDERED INNOCENT PEOPLE, UNPREVOKED.

How much more of a refutation do you need???

I guess we're just having a logic melt-down then.
Cause if somebody says "the murderer was wrong", that IS SAYING the murderer was not justified.

In what reality can you see where I could say the murderer (and murder) was wrong, but somehow the murderer was justified?

Saying the murderer was wrong is not the same as saying those who find the murder justifiable are wrong for doing so.

I realize this is just his way of not trying to offend anyone, but dammit ... terrorist sypathizers are a group we shouldn't have any problems setting straight!
