Drudge: ABC Withheld Parts of Video from CIA

Drudge has the siren out again:

ABC withheld the final 15 minutes of the tape from the CIA, where the alleged terrorist warns about Bush, Cheney, federal sources tell DRUDGE…

Update (1707): The link is now up.


ABCNEWS withheld portions of an alarming new al Qaeda videotape which warns the next terror attack will dwarf 9/11 from the CIA when they submitted the video for analysis, the DRUDGE REPORT has learned. The CIA and FBI late Wednesday authenticated the tape, federal sources tell DRUDGE. ABCNEWS has been informed of the government’s standing.


A top goverment source said from Washington that ABC withheld the final 15 minutes of the tape from the CIA — the portion of the tape where the man warns of retribution for Americans electing Bush and Cheney. “You are guilty, guilty, guilty. You’re as guilty as Bush and Cheney. You’re as guilty as Rumsfeld and Ashcroft and Powell…,” the man states.

Intriguing. Apparently, Eminem is behind this video. Or perhaps Insane Clown Posse.

    Nothing to say about Bush’s fake “watever it takes” ad?

    The Bush campaign is passing the buck on responsibility for the fake ad. Big suprise.
