"We made a decision to postpone publishing it in light of recent events in Afghanistan, including the Koran burning and the alleged killings of Afghani civilians by a member of the U.S. military.

In response Pamela Geller, blogger and executive director of Stop Islamization of America, asked the NYT to run this ad

Hmm. Think the NYT is really worried about placing US troops in danger?

'placing U.S. Troops in danger'

We know they don't give a rats ass about the Troops. The nyt is just a gaggle of cowardly sniveling sycophants to islam. Not a pair of balls between the collective lot of them.

About that first item....I can't imagine that military folks are very happy about that cover up!

As for the NYT, I've grown to expect nothing else from that bastion of liberalism and Leftism.

This is truly the wildest thing.

SOmetimes I wonder that Pam Geller's still alive.

I thought the NYT was on the verge of bankruptcy? Did they get some of that 'Obama-money'?

Chuck said...

Z, her hobby is definitely dangerous

Brooke, they likely on the payroll at this point.
