‘How the Mass Killing of Egyptian Islamists Is Being Justified in America’

Supporters of Egypt’s recent military coup from America’s left and right are performing “intellectual contortions” to justify “the mass killings of Islamists in the name of democracy,” Ken Silverstein writes at Harper’s Magazine. And “[t]he common denominator is that the killers were seen as pro-Western.”

Al-Jazeera’s Conspiracy Theory About Obama and Egypt Is Brainless Mush

Al-Jazeera Arabic has long since lost a lot of its previous journalisic standards, once its head, Waddah Khanfar, was fired in favor of a member of the royal family. Al-Jazeera English usually still does a good job, having a different editorial line and generally good reporters. But its publication of a brain dead op-ed purporting to show U.S. support for anti-Morsi political forces is very bad, unbalanced journalism.
