Rescued from captivity where he was essentially starved. And his reaction?
– CBS News journalist Richard Butler said he believes he was kidnapped in Iraq by policemen with sympathies toward the Hezbollah but isn’t entirely sure who held him captive for two months or why.
Butler, a British journalist kidnapped with his interpreter on Feb. 10, was rescued by Iraqi troops on April 14 when he was found with a sack over his head in a house in Basra.
Butler said he felt it was better to be kidnapped in Iraq then taken into custody by Americans in Afghanistan.
“I was pleased I wasn’t being mortarboarded in Guantanamo or being held for six and a half years like an Al-Jazeera cameraman, for instance,” he said.
I tend to believe that mortarboarding is just someone misunderstanding waterboarding – unless the CIA has come up with a way to pound gypsum dust into the noses of these murdering turds at Gitmo.
But could there be any greater representation of the absolute anti-Americanism of the media? And then they will 100% deny any sort of bias in their reporting. Honestly – its too bad they found this idiot. Better to let him experience the tender mercies of the Hezbos.
It was waterboarding – went to cbsnews:
Pizzey: You were saying it is better to be kidnapped by Shi’ites in southern Iraq than by Americans in Afghanistan.
Butler: I was pleased I wasn’t being waterboarded in Guantanamo or being held for six and a half years like an al Jazeera cameraman, for instance.
He’s still an anti-American donk too.
