    W.H. Immediately Calls Bombing in Beirut 'Terrorist Attack'

    W.H. Immediately Calls Bombing in Beirut 'Terrorist Attack' | The Weekly Standard

    Oct 19, 2012


    The BBC reports that earlier today "A huge car bomb has killed at least eight people and injured 78 in central Beirut, Lebanese officials say."

    Hours later, the White House released a statement condemning the "terrorist attack."

    Hmm, no need for investigation here.

    funny how they immediately called this one, but waited so long and changed their story so much on the embassy attack. Bunch of dumb fucks.

    I heard a right wing whacko radio host talking about that today. I sometimes listen to them when I'm out shopping.

    Has our intel agencies improved so much lately that it no longer takes a freaking month to determine whether it's terrorists or protesters?

    The right wing media will be arguing tomorrow that it wasn't a terrorist attack at all.

    Bishop Willard has yet to call it a terrorist attack, he has been too busy composing his apology speech. :eusa_whistle:

    Beirut girl hurt by car bomb needed 300 stitches
    Oct 22,`12 -- Jennifer Shedid had just arrived home from school and she was hungry. As she asked her older sister what she could eat, a massive explosion shook their entire block and turned the glass of their 4th floor apartment into flying knives that slashed 10-year-old Jennifer from head to toe.
