From the Guardian:
Got to admire the BBC’s ability to compartmentalize things.
On Today this morning we had a long exploration of the disaster that is Syria…conclusion…Assad, who has terrorised his own people with chemical weapons and barrel bombs is actually a better man to have in power than the Al Qaeda extremists fighting to remove him.
So that’s just how bad the Al Qaeda boys are.
Followed immediately by a heart warming tale of…an Al Qaeda terrorist…in Guantanamo Bay…who has written back to a plucky British Christian who wrote a letter to him.
Khalid Sheikh Mohammed ‘quite friendly’ says pen pal
The BBC managed to find two extracts they wished to read out from the 27 page tract…the first saying the lovable rogue never stops repenting for his sins (though we’re not sure what he thinks they might be) and the second an attack on paedophile Catholic priests….driven to their evil lusts by a decadent West apparently.
Might there be a connection between that terrorist and his compatriots who are actually chopping up Christian priests in Syria?
Not for the BBC.
