I don't thing it's a conspiracy. I think it's another thoughtless liberal who flushed his brain a long time ago. After all, isn't he expecting the government to check his work before he posts? :happy:

New York Daily News reporter revealed on Wednesday that he might have been the inadvertent source of one of the strangest rumors about Chuck Hagel, the current nominee for defense secretary.

The Daily News' Dan Friedman, who is a reporter in the paper's Washington bureau, published an article on Wednesday referring to himself as "the unwitting source" of what he called a "bogus" claim about one of the groups Hagel was rumored to have addressed: the "Friends of Hamas." If Hagel had actually received money from such a group, it would likely have doomed his nomination. But no evidence has surfaced that the group even exists. So what happened?

Friedman wrote that he was interested in knowing if Hagel's Republican critics knew the names of specific groups from which Hagel received speaker fees. He contacted a Republican aide and "hypothetically and hyperbolically" asked if Hagel addressed groups such as "Friends of Hamas" or the "Junior League of Hezbollah, in France." Friedman wrote:

The names were so over-the-top, so linked to terrorism in the Middle East, that it was clear I was talking hypothetically and hyperbolically. No one could take seriously the idea that organizations with those names existed — let alone that a former senator would speak to them.

Friedman also put the question into email form, presumably thinking his joke would not be taken seriously. He was in for a surprise.

The following day, an article appeared on the conservative website Breitbart.com with the headline, "SECRET HAGEL DONOR?: WHITE HOUSE SPOX DUCKS QUESTION ON 'FRIENDS OF HAMAS.'" Conservative pundits, including Mike Huckabee, and other websites also addressed the rumor. It even came up during a Fox Business segment with host Lou Dobbs. Other outlets published articles questioning if the group "Friends of Hamas" even existed. Friedman wrote:

I am, it seems, the creator of the Friends of Hamas myth. Doing my job, I erred in counting on confidentiality and the understanding that my example was farcical — and by assuming no one would print an unchecked rumor. If anyone didn’t know already: Partisan agendas, Internet reporting and old-fashioned carelessness can move complete crocks fast. If you see a story on Hagel addressing the Junior League of Hezbollah, that’s fake too.

Though Republicans blocked Hagel's confirmation vote last week, they are expected to come to a vote, and likely confirm Hagel, in the coming days.

UPDATE: Ben Shapiro, who wrote the Breitbart news article, stood by it in a reply to Friedman on Wednesday:

Since the original “Friends of Hamas” story was written, the media has downplayed or ignored the myriad of borderline anti-Semitic Hagel comments regarding Iran and the State of Israel, as well as the “Jewish lobby.” They have deliberately obstructed news coverage of Hagel’s well-documented supported base among friends of Hamas. Instead of asking Hagel to release the requested documents, the media has attacked Breitbart News ... Our Senate source denies that Friedman is the source of this information.

Shapiro's defense does not include an apology for spreading the false story about Hagel.

Why is it such a shock and only spoken in soft hush tones, and boo'd and hissed at if any body brings up this asshat's anti-semitic veiws. He should just get some balls and own up to his own convictions.

Like calling some of the dimbulb Obama worshippers on here "commies" or "marxists" They are, they know they are. But for some reason they don't have the balls to come right out and admit it. Why the shame? They are YOUR convictions, you should stand by them. People in 1933 wore their Nazi uniforms and swastika arm bands with pride.

The turban heads couldnt possibly be pissed at the U.S. bcuz of this though, naaaaaaaaaa, never... Illegal and UNconstitutional, no congressional approval by Mr. BO, just go all Adam Lanza on them Barry............. yeah, thats the ticket................:

U.S. assembling secret drone bases in Africa, Arabian Peninsula, officials say - Washington Post

The Obama administration is assembling a constellation of secret drone bases for counterterrorism operations in the Horn of Africa and the Arabian Peninsula as part of a newly aggressive campaign to attack al-Qaeda affiliates in Somalia and Yemen, U.S. officials said.

One of the installations is being established in Ethi*o*pia, a U.S. ally in the fight against al-Shabab, the Somali militant group that controls much of that country. Another base is in the Seychelles, an archipelago in the Indian Ocean, where a small fleet of “hunter-killer” drones resumed operations this month after an experimental mission demonstrated that the unmanned aircraft could effectively patrol Somalia from there.

The U.S. military also has flown drones over Somalia and Yemen from bases in Djibouti, a tiny African nation at the junction of the Red Sea and the Gulf of Aden. In addition, the CIA is building a secret airstrip in the Arabian Peninsula so it can deploy armed drones over Yemen.

The rapid expansion of the undeclared drone wars is a reflection of the growing alarm with which U.S. officials view the activities of al-Qaeda affiliates in Yemen and Somalia, even as al-Qaeda’s core leadership in Pakistan has been weakened by U.S. counterterrorism operations.

The U.S. government is known to have used drones to carry out lethal attacks in at least six countries: Afghanistan, Iraq, Libya, Pakistan, Somalia and Yemen. The negotiations that preceded the establishment of the base in the Republic of Seychelles illustrate the efforts the United States is making to broaden the range of its drone weapons.

The island nation of 85,000 people has hosted a small fleet of MQ-9 Reaper drones operated by the U.S. Navy and Air Force since September 2009. U.S. and Seychellois officials have previously acknowledged the drones’ presence but have said that their primary mission was to track pirates in regional waters. But classified U.S. diplomatic cables show that the unmanned aircraft have also conducted counterterrorism missions over Somalia, about 800 miles to the northwest.

Wait a minute......I thought that Obama was setting up secret drone bases in the US so he could bomb law-abiding gun owners......I mean, we saw it happenin' right on TV when they fire-bombed the great patriot in that cabin......

As for Anti-semitic, Hagel once stated that he didn't think Israel should be given free-reign to take any land and kill anyone they wanted......So that means to be pro-israel, you have to say, "do whatever you wish, and here's another couple 'O' billion to do it with"......

Hey, you have no room to spin 'cause you are so far to the "right" that your up against a wall.

How about that crap where you guys state that Obama said he's gonna stand with Muslims against the US? His original statement was in reference to the Sikh that was murdered for being a "Towelhead" by some idiots after 9/11; "I will stand with Muslim-Americans to protect them from this kind of abuse if this continues".......Yeah, there was no spin there on your side; Take the facts, burn 'em, then make up your own story so we can make decisions based on total BS....cause all decisions made using BS instead of facts is so good. How'd that Iraq mess work out for you? At least you were able to prove you're "Pro-Military" by killing 4000 US servicemen, right?

Seriously Gnny, can you even say one bad thing about one of your own? Are they really all saints? You go after someone from your party that doesn't toe the line but just try and say something bad about Tommy Delay.....I'd start to believe you actually might have a few working brain cells if you could admit he was a POS.

Whats Delay up to today? Where is Randy "Duke" Cunningham right now. At least when we find a POS we clean up the shit. You mutha fuckers reelect the scum, in hopes of making the muslim, foreign born, illegitimate fraud a KING!!
Yes I am a right wing EXTREMIST. I am PROUD to admit it. You POS, all of you can't even admit to being just a little socialist.marxist/communist. WHY is that???? Be proud of your convictions as entitled worthless POS that DEMAND living off the enslaved working class.

You are damn right I am a right wing fanatic. And it should worry the shit out of you. Because the trend is growing, driven by YOUR greed of OUR sweat and labors. You should be very afraid. Your convictions if exposed, could be determental to your health someday soon.

BTW, how is that sequester going to be for you. Taking a little vacation soon? Don't worry. They NEVER screw you poachers. You may not get paid as scheduled, but you'll get you unearned welfare pay check for the time you were away from your hanger sweeping.

Do a quick study sometime of the Tories that were loyal to the King during the Revolutionary War. The ones that weren't killed, usually unpleasantly, survived because they ran off to England or Canada. The ones the somehow survived here were evendually banished, or suffered isolation form the patriots.
We have already greatly surpassed what brought on the first revolution. I think the only reason nothing has happened yet is the false belief that the situation can be fixed. Pretty sure by the time Hiltabeast is elected that idea will vanish.

And the dimbulbs have no idea what is even going on. They will be caught flat footed and dumbfounded.

Here's a couple of questions for you guys; 1) Why is it you rail against the govt forcing you to do things you don't want to, yet you want to force everyone in this country to live your way? I think you guys would be labeled hypocrits, but you just ain't that smart, are you? I don't think you guys even realize how stupid you sound...
2) Do you think that YOU are going to be able to stage a "Revolution" and beat the 3/4 of the country who really doesn't agree with a damn thing you guys blither about? Most Americans don't agree with your positions on A) Gun control, B) Abortion, C) Religion in Govt, D) CReationism vs Evolution, E) Scientific facts can be "bought", F) Poor and middle class should live as slaves, while G) The Rich should be treated as our Sainted overlords.

Now, here is an interesting little fact; Your idiots on Capitol hill have done more to bring us to this point, what with a phoney war in Iraq, and huge tax breaks for the rich who have not done anything to help this country...Hey, did you hear about the big golf pro who's leaving the country because his taxes went up...There's YOUR kind of patriot- "I want all the benefits but I'll get in a snit and leave if you expect me to actually pay for those benefits".....I can understand, I mean being forced to actually pay taxes on the millions he "Earns", while paying his illegal immigrant housekeeper $5 hour.
