Press Lie #2 About Jack Idema

It is Wednesday and that is Free Jack Idema Day (really everyday is until we get him and his men home). This is press lie number 2 about Jack and the alleged torture of terrorists.

New York Magazine: “Early press reports indicated that three prisoners found in Idema’s custody during the raid were blindfolded and beaten and strapped to the ceiling by their feet; five others were tied to chairs with rope in a small, dark room down a hall that was littered with bloodied clothing.”

Please, spare us the hyperbole. What Sullivan FAILS to mention is that those “Early press reports” were widely known to be false, and were known by her to be false BEFORE she printed that article. In other words, Sullivan couldn’t say that it was true, or fact, or proven at trial, or anything else, so she said “early press reports…” this way she could use knowingly false and horrible lies with impunity. No one ever said this at trial, the translation was wrong, and we have the trial tapes. As far as a hall “littered with bloody clothing” that is as an outrageous of lie as any ever made. Lets assume this is true; can someone please explain why no terrorist, no person, has ever shown a single laceration, cut, abrasion, or any other verifiable injury to any one. In fact, the only verifiable injuries have been to the men of TASK FORCE SABER 7 (check out the case section of the SuperPatriot website) Even in the first days, no press agency or journalist ever printed any of this with a name attached to the source. It was always “a source that refused to be named.” That’s press lingo for; it was made up, or at best, a rumor, in order to sell newspapers. Sickening when you think about it, criminal when you consider how it affected the lives and liberty of three innocent Americans and their families.

We will continue to blog about this and certainly every Wednesday until Jack and his men are home. Then we will ask for DEMAND accountability of all people involved in this travesty.

    Apparently I Live In A Bubble..because I have never heard of Jack Idema, an American who is currently imprisoned in Afghanistan.

    These three Americans have been to hell. But we can help them back. It’s time to turn the heat up under the comfy chairs of the armchair quarterbacks who got them into this mess.

    Big Dog thank you for all you do. It has been an honor to meet you online.

    I don’t think anyone can doubt for a minute that there is something wrong with this story. One minute he’s a hero of the 2001 war in Afghanistan and Associated Press is writing a story that he saved 300 women and children at an Earthquake in Afghanistan, and he’s getting thanked by the Afghan President, and next minute the guy is getting ten years in an Afghan prison from a taleban judge (see Now does this make sense?

    It makes more sense that he was running some sort of black site and only got in deep trouble when he arrested one of Karzia’s top judges who was really a terrorist. This case stinks. And all the early press leaks about what a no good SOB he was were made by anonymous government sources. total smear campaign to descredit him. Is this how American treats it’s special ops people when the learn too much?

    Keep up the good work on this, the Idema case has me reading your blog every day now.
