2 Tiny Alien Kitties are Watching You  Mon, Oct 29, 2012 5:26:00am

What a pile of stinking rumor mongering shit that story is...

The Washington Times got the "story" from (dim) Jim Hoft.
(dim) Jim Hoft got the "story" from TigerDroppings.
TigerDroppings got the "story" from one of its forum members.
The forum member supposedly got it from an anonymous military person.

What started this whole thing?

I heard a story today from someone inside the military that I trust entirely...

...The information I heard today was that General Ham as head of Africom received the same e-mails the White House received requesting help/support as the attack was taking place. General Ham immediately had a rapid response unit ready and communicated to the Pentagon that he had a unit ready.

General Ham then received the order to stand down. His response was to screw it, he was going to help anyhow. Within 30 seconds to a minute after making the move to respond, his second in command apprehended General Ham and told him that he was now relieved of his command. [Link: www.tigerdroppings.com...]

If you believe one word of this "general placed under arrest 30 seconds after disobeying orders" crap I have a bridge to sell you cheap. They are really getting fucking desperate to slime Obama before the elections aren't they?

re: #2 Tiny Alien Kitties are Watching You

Desperately sad and pathetic. Lies R us is the new GOP motto, and lizards should know better than to fall for Jim Hoft's brand of craptrappery.

I'm glad they are too stupid to keep their stories straight, here is Rep. Jason Chaffetz (R -Ut) on Fox saying General Ham told him he was never even requested to take action. So yesterday the story was that Ham did nothing because he was not requested to do anything (White house being at fault), today the story is that Ham did nothing because he was ordered not to (even worse white house being at fault).

Oh, for Pete's sake. An article from the white nationalist Washington Times crediting the stupidest blogger on the Internet, Jim Hoft?

This right wing wing fake outrage is getting utterly ridiculous.

As a retired Marine I can assure you that if General Ham had indeed been placed under arrest it would be all over the Military Times (not to mention several thousand milblogs). You can't keep something like that secret for more than...five seconds?

A textbook example of the "throw something at the wall and see if it sticks" school of journalism.

This article is pure fantasy.
