MJ Rosenberg Lies Again

I'm sure that the AIPAC conference over the weekend caused MJ Rosenberg's blood pressure to soar, but there is no reason to be so sloppy with the facts. Sorry, I mean sloppier. We're jumping outside the Huffington Post for a second and on to his twitter feed:


Really? That's interesting. Especially because I didn't think that the US military was allowed to make political statements without the approval of the government, and that was what led to General McChrystal's firing (among other things). So let's take a look at the ad in question. Click to zoom in of course:


The first thing you may notice is that all of the ranking military personnel who put their names to the ad were retired, making the claim that it was the "U.S. military" making the statement very questionable. The second think you may notice at the end there that it is sponsored by the National Iranian American Council. AKA the "Iran Lobby." I have a feeling that if AIPAC put up an ad (any ad) and cited a number of American former officials Rosenberg wouldn't be so quick to call it an "ad by U.S. military."

Just another lie. Add it to the list I suppose.
