August 10, 2011 – Barack Obama is a tried-and-true liar. But, after all, he is a politician, a career that requires endless prevarication, fibbing, fabricating and obfuscation. The standards for a politician are so low, that it is quite possible to beatify Jimmy Carter. A journalist, however, is something totally different. The reporter of news acts as a kind of a buffer against the slow, stench-laden march of political mildew which threatens to confuse us all. The journalist is beyond all tight lines of shadow between truth and falsehood. He or she is the one protector; the defining persona who collides with the establishment in an effort to keep us abreast of the facts; not the folderol Obama and his ilk would like us to believe.
Enter one ANTHONY SHADID. He and his wife, NADA BAKRI, of the zionist rag the NYT have been covering the Syrian unrest for the last 4 months. Don’t be fooled by his name, Shadid may not be what he appears to be. He was born in something like Oklahoma of Southern Lebanese parentage. I am not sure he is Christian. I’m not sure he’s even Lebanese. He’s like that Gabriel lady who has this rash of pleas about Islam with her unbelievable, praeternatural experiences in Lebanon during the Civil War. Shadid doesn’t look right. Why should he be Christian anyway? His real name might be ‘Antar for all I know. I do know for a fact that he fabricates stories with imaginary contacts who give him the inside scoop on all those events in Syria. Today’s column is proof positive of his qualifications for the TONY BLAIR LIAR’S AWARD. I’ll continue is a few moments. Ziad Abu Fadel.
