Looks like we spoke too soon when we applauded the BBC for promptly removing what they said was an “old page” that was extremely offensive, because they’ve now put up a “new” version that they stand behind completely. A “new” version that, oddly enough, is exactly identical to the old one.

The way America has got involved in conflicts in regions like the Middle East has made some people very angry, including a group called al-Qaeda - who are widely thought to have been behind the attacks.
In the past, al-Qaeda leaders have declared a holy war - called a jihad - against the US. As part of this jihad, al-Qaeda members believe attacking US targets is something they should do.

When the attacks happened in 2001, there were a number of US troops in a country called Saudi Arabia, and the leader of al-Qaeda, Osama Bin Laden, said he wanted them to leave.

The usual yahoos and dimbulbs show up in Stop the ACLU’s comments, wailing and moaning that it’s “factually accurate”, so what’s so offensive about it?

Well, how to explain it to a lifeform with the IQ of a cup of soggy beef jerky? We know (thanks, commenter John Rohan), let’s rewrite the BBC’s “factually accurate” first sentence, shall we?

“The way the Jews had succeeded in business, finance and higher education had made some people very angry, including a party called “The National Socialist Workers’ Party of Germany” - who are widely thought to be behind the murder of 6 million Jews.”

Hey, it’s factually accurate, morons. So we suppose that it isn’t in the least offensive to you either, right?

The sad thing is that it probably isn’t.

Finally, remind us to never, ever again assume that the BBC is capable of any action indicative of basic morals, intelligence or journalistic ethics.

    For a country who have meddled in the affairs of other nations for like what, a millenium - and have suffered attacks from the IRA and their own home-grown terrorists - the U.K.’s BBC seem the definition of hypocritical. Maybe it’s the guilt of bowing to terrorism (awarding Gerry Adams a seat in Parliament) or eroding into the typical Euroweenie disgust for all things American, who knows? One thing is for sure, we will see the liberal agenda’s appeasement strategy play itself out in the U.K. before it reaches our shores. If only the inevitable future didn’t have to play out on the soil of such dear friends….the queen will be wearing a Burqa before 2020.

    I just hope this time we just let the Euroweenies fall, maybe just maybe they would finally wake up and figure out you can’t keep sucking on the dicks of facists and just hope they won’t kill you. The British have been a bunch of wankers ever since we kicked their ass, the French pretty much useless, Spain they are dead to me, ever since the folded in Iraq like a 2 dollar lawn chair.I still hold hold out hope for Germany. No not so much it’s just us and the Assuies

    OhioRWN:

    Seems to be the case. It would really be nice to have some honor restored to the U.S. presidency again. It’s not only the fact people are using an almost universal distaste for Bush to excuse their anti-Americanism, but the fact people just don’t care anymore.
    I think Europeans need to ask themselves, is it possible for muslims to erode European society to the point people live in fear, lose freedoms that were hard fought, revert to a segregated society? If they think it’s possible, then at what point can we all universally agree it has happened? Will that point be too late?
    Muslims, by way of savagery, not by character, have one alluring advantage over us - they don’t compromise. We, because we are civilized, constantly doubt ourselves. This has allowed us to achieve freedom of the press, separation of church and state, abolition of slavery, women’s rights, etc…but while we doubt ourselves, we’re forgetting that this quality must NOT dominate, and there ARE times when we must draw a line.
    Someone can cover a likeness of the Virgin Mary with cowshit and call it art. Leftists salivate at the opportunity to ridicule those who take offense. Someone draws a picture of that faggot pedo mohammed, and leftists salivate at the opportunity to ridicule those who did the drawings, so we’re sleeping with one eye open for months - with the blessing of the leftists.
    Do we, or do we not, cherish the freedoms we’ve earned by evolving, by being civilized? Do we dare worship our own God despite the rantings of those who think religious extremism is a pandemic among ALL religions?
    If there is a point where it’s too late, will we even pause in our appeasement to notice it happened? Do we have the steadiness of character and the ability to recognize and fight the enemy without wavering constantly?
    Reagan may have made his mistakes, but I tell you, there wouldn’t be any “failing grade report cards” on the war in Iraq. We need a leader. We need to be able to march in unison, just long enough to show the savages and misogynistic apes of islam that we have drawn a line they cannot cross. I don’t know if we have it in us.

    Here’s all you have to know about this particular racket…

    It’s financed by forced levy upon Royal Subjects.

    Any subsequent outrage is highly superfluous.

    Wake me up when you find something shocking about the Beeb and their wholehearted lunge into anti-righteousness.

    Until then, on that particular issue–

    They’ve been US troops in Saudi Arabia for 3 decades now. I was there in 1980 as part of Operation Elf One. To blame 9/11 on troops in Saudi is ludicrous since we’ve been there for so long. It may sound good to those that hate “American Imperialism” since they refuse to believe that radical Islam’s goal is total domination.

    […] Their “for kids” page has an odd simplification of 9/11, for which they apologized and then reposted the same thing. […]

    How utterly sickening! When I was a kid during the late fifties, early sixties I used to listen to the BBC. At that time respected and credible. I wonder if they know what they have lost…..or even care?

    Didn’t the Saudis REQUEST the US presence? Are we in the west to blame for looking like Gods among insects just because we allow women to open their eyes and breathe? Fuck the Saudis. Once I can get my car to run on electricity or hydrogen, they’ll be back in the stone-age with the afghans. Maybe then they’ll allow women to work?
