DailyKos: A Jihadist Blog?

Markos Moulitsas Zúniga, the "kos" behind the ultra-leftist blog Dailykos, would have readers believe that his true allegiance lies with the United States of America. But, as Dr. Rusty Shackleford of The Jawa Report aptly analogizes, if Markos loves his country, it's the same sort of "love" that an abusive husband feels for the wife he keeps in line with beatings.

Markos' latest propaganda piece is what evidently tipped the balance for The Jawa Report :
Saddam tortured, we torture. Saddam used WP chemical weapons against insurgents and civilians, we use WP chemical weapons against insurgents and civilians.
Somehow Markos conflates alleged use of white phosporous against terrorist insurgents as proving its use against "the populace" of Iraq, which is what Hussein was accused of doing. Markos loves to hate his country, and the best that can be said of posts like this, which are cited at jihadi websites, is that they are reckless.

Keep in mind that this is the same person who said of the civilian contractors who were murdered in Fallujah, burned, and hung from a bridge abutment "screw them". Markos lost some advertisers over that one, and deservedly so.

Today, Shackleford calls Markos out in an open letter blatantly questioning Markos' allegiance. This is overdue. People like Markos, who profit by providing propaganda to our Islamist enemies, should have their noses rubbed in their behavior.
