WaPo op-ed contributor and former Gitmo detainee posts photoshopped dead Obama pic on his website

The Washington Post’s Outlook section just gave ex-jihadi Moazzem Begg a half-page this Sunday to lament the U.S. war on jihadis, and Begg repaid the Post by showcasing a photoshopped image of a dead President Barack Obama on his advocacy website.

“The decision to publish Begg’s piece does not reflect a blanket endorsement of his views or of everything that appears on his organization’s Web site,” according to a statement from Carlos Lozada, the section’s editor. He reports to Marcus Brauchli, the Post’s executive editor. “It reflects our interest in exploring the many ways that Osama bin Laden shattered and

Begg is the director of the website, and the image and accompanying blog-post are featured on the site’s main page.

If this guy put the picture on HIS website, I fail to see how the headling "WASHINGTON POST PRINTS PHOTOSHOPPED DEAD OBAMA PIC" is even remotely accurate.

Never mind, NOW I understand - it's a headline that Megi supplied out of his own head. Not the real one by any means.

Either that or he stole it off some idiot on FR who has just as much of a connection with reality . . . .

That's the best response you can make on your falsifying this story? Pretty weak even for you.

They published an article by him. You didn't read it correctly and as usual, went for a sensationalist headline. End of story. I see the Post in hard copy and online every day.

Pretty weak even for you.How did I falsify the story ?Is it now my fault that you have developed a certain slowness of thought ?After you reread the piece you finally had a glimmer of an idea what it was all about .All of that French food has hardened and clogged your carotid arteries .

Every once in awhile I have to call Megi on his bullshit. It could easily be a full time job, but the pay would be abysmal. :D

What a coincidence! So am I. I don't think for a minute I'll educate Megi on accurate headlines, I just don't want anyone else to be fooled by his interpretations. :)
