Steven Vincent’s Wife Responds to Juan Cole

• Views: 1,594

The execrable creature who goes by the name “Juan Cole” picked the wrong person to libel when he went after Steven Vincent, the journalist murdered in Iraq—because even though Mr. Vincent can no longer defend himself against Cole’s vicious smears, his wife can, and did: ‘It’s called courage’. (Hat tip: Amy.)

Yes, Steven was aggressive in criticizing what he saw around him and did not like. It’s called courage, and it happens to be a tradition in the history of this country. Without this tradition there would have been no Revolutionary War, no Civil War, no civil rights movement, no a lot of things that America can be proud of. He had made many friends in Iraq, and was afraid for them if the religious fundamentalists were given the country to run under shari’a. You may dismiss that as naive, simplistic, foolish, but I say to you, as you sit safely in your ivory tower in Michigan with nothing threatening your comfy, tenured existence, that you should be ashamed at the depths to which you have sunk by libeling Steven and Nour. They were on the front lines, risking all, in an attempt to call attention to the growing storm threatening to overwhelm a fragile and fledgling experiment in democracy, trying to get the world to see that all was not right in Iraq. And for their efforts, Steven is dead and Nour is recuperating with three bullet wound in her back. Yes, that’s right - the “honorable” men who abducted them, after binding them, holding them captive and beating them, set them free, told them to run - and then shot them both in the back. I’ve seen the autopsy report.

You did not know him - you did not have that honor, and you will never have the chance, thanks to the murderous goons for whom you have appointed yourself an apologist.

Do not miss this. Cole is a disgusting human, and Lisa Ramaci-Vincent absolutely rips him a new one.
