AP Embeds With The Taliban And Promotes Murder

Not anti-American, just pro-terrorist. Jawa has the full story of two women murdered by the Taliban and the AP's participation in the story.

We would remind the AP that the act of the Taliban inviting a reporter to the murder means they wanted this news out there. The AP was clearly being used as a propaganda outlet for the Taliban.

Does this make him an accomplice or only a witness to the crime? When you know a crime is about to be committed, do you not have a moral and ethical obligation to try to prevent that crime? Even if you're a journalist? Even if all you do is try to call the authorities, in this case someone in the Afghani government or NATO?

No word yet if the AP will be charging the Taliban if they use the photos or excerpts of the story on their jihadi recruitment sites.

Maybe it's time the US military started pulling the credentials of so-called 'news organizations' that shill for the enemy. It would be interesting to see which side they pick to report on.
