Boo freakin hoo

Who is the little boy?

Malkin is on some sort of weird wingnut warpath against Amanda Marcotte. You can see the POS video over at Sadly No. Bizarrely, she mocks Marcotte for being wrong about the Duke lacrosse "rape" case. But Little Lulu herself doesn't exactly have a 100% track record. Here's part of Malkin's column from June 16, 2006:

American troops in shackles

By Michelle Malkin

Did you know there are seven young Marines and a Navy Corpsman sitting in a military brig right now in leg and wrist shackles — despite the fact that they've not been charged with any crime?

The men are in solitary confinement, locked in 8'x8' cells at San Diego's Camp Pendleton, as investigators probe an April 26 incident involving the 3rd Battalion, 5th Regiment, 1st Marine Division. They are behind bars 23 hours a day; family members can only see them through inch-thick Plexiglass. Military blabbermouths have told the press that the service members are suspected of kidnapping and shooting a man in the Iraqi town of Hamandiya. The Iraqi man's family reportedly came forward seeking payment for his death as media hysteria set in over the separate alleged atrocity in Haditha.

Oh no, those poor Marines are being persecuted by "media hysteria!" Someone call the waahmbulance!

Marine pleads guilty in death of Iraqi
From a Times Staff Writer
January 19, 2007

SAN DIEGO — A 25-year-old Marine corporal pleaded guilty Thursday to kidnapping and murder charges in the death last year of an unarmed Iraqi man who prosecutors said was dragged from his home and executed as he begged for his life.

Cpl. Trent D. Thomas, 25, was the fifth member of an eight-man squad to admit guilt in the April 26 killing in Hamandiya, an insurgent stronghold west of Baghdad.

Prosecutors say seven Marines and a Navy corpsman plotted to kill a Sunni Arab militant suspected of planting roadside bombs. They did not find their original target and instead chose Hashim Ibrahim Awad, 52, whom they also suspected of being an insurgent.

Thomas could be sentenced next month to life in prison without the possibility of parole.

Nice going, Malkin. Think it might be time for you to stop slinging arrows at other people and maybe STFU?

Debunking this ding-dong ought to be your schtick. Everybody needs a schtick, after all.jc
