John Pilger: The Pro-Terrorist Aussie Journalist
I’ve noted before that famous Aussie journalist John Pilger, who has been published at the BBC, LA Times, New York Times, The Guardian, Daily Mirror, & The Sydney Morning Herald among other places, is pro-terrorism. But, Pilger goes so far over the line in this interview that I cannot imagine how any “mainstream” paper in the Western world could continue to publish his material. You might as well publish articles written by members of Hamas or Al-Qaeda as pieces by Pilger. This whole interview is nothing but Pilger trying to legitimize the terrorists who murder coalition troops, Iraqi policemen, and Shias at religious celebrations. Here’s a particularly egregious response from Pilger…
TONY JONES: Can you approve in that context the killing of American, British or Australian troops who are in the occupying forces?
JOHN PILGER: Well yes, they’re legitimate targets.
They’re illegally occupying a country.
And I would have thought from an Iraqi’s point of view they are legitimate targets, they’d have to be, sure.
Pilger isn’t “dissenting” here, he’s simply on the wrong side of the war on terrorism….
