Leftist propaganda hacks in full swing over John Stewart interview

John Stewart interviewed John Yoo (the author of the Bush admin torture memos) and according to Adam Sewer at Tapped, Stewart made Yoo “look entirely reasonable”. Lost on Sewer (the irony of that last name is delicious), is the fact that outside of his liberal martini party meetings, Mr. Yoo is entirely reasonable. In his attack on Stewart, Sewer proceeds to link to numerous left wing media sites as proof that John Yoo is evil and everything that Stewart did was wrong.

For example:

Stewart allowed Yoo to claim that Abu Zubayda was the “number 3 in al-Qaeda,” a claim which is factually untrue.

The word “untrue” has this link from the liberal Washington Post.

An al-Qaeda associate captured by the CIA and subjected to harsh interrogation techniques said his jailers later told him they had mistakenly thought he was the No. 3 man in the organization’s hierarchy and a partner of Osama bin Laden, according to newly released excerpts from a 2007 hearing.

“They told me, ‘Sorry, we discover that you are not Number 3, not a partner, not even a fighter,’ ” said Abu Zubaida, speaking in broken English, according to the new transcript of a Combatant Status Review Tribunal held at the U.S. military prison in Guantanamo Bay, Cuba.

The authors are using a terrorist’s self serving quote as proof that the CIA was mistaken. In a court of law and public opinion, using the terrorist’s own statement of his innocence doesn’t pass the smell test.

Every other link Sewer provided is full of the same left wing trickeries. If they would bother to poke their heads out of the left wing echo chamber every now and then, perhaps reality might look a little more clear.

    John was fighting out of his weight class-not often seen. Yoo’s charge was a difficult one and while I am uncomfortable with the results (recognizing it would be nice to have everything within a constitutional frame work)I know that in the heat of attack civil rights are not a suicide pact. OFS

    Let’s face it, 99% of the criticism that’s been thrown at the Bush administration over this whole thing has been at about the intellectual level of a 5 year old who wants cake.

    So hardly surprising that the guy who did the work behind the memos was able to clean up.
