What the MainstreamMedia doesn’t tell us, is telling about them.
A double-attack that is reported to have killed 98 people and wounded more than 200 was perpetrated by al Qaeda in Iraq using two mentally disabled women who were non-volunteers. According to CNN (who would normally fudge about it), two mentally disabled women were strapped with explosives Friday and sent into two busy Baghdad markets, where they were detonated by remote control, said Gen. Qasim Atta, spokesman for Baghdad’s security plan, on state television. An Atta aide said that people referred to the bomber at central Baghdad’s al-Ghazl market as the “crazy woman” and that the bomber at a second market had an unspecified birth disability. The aide said authorities believe the women were unaware of plans to detonate the explosives.
ABC finally gets it right after last night’s “suicide bomber” report finally saying today,
The chief Iraqi military spokesman in Baghdad, Brig. Gen. Qassim al-Moussawi, said the female bombers had Down syndrome and that the explosives were detonated by remote control. (emphasis added)
Two different spokesmen or is just Quassim a common name for Iraqi Generals? Anyhow it’s quite a bit different than other Media reports of two female “suicide” bombers.
