Australia - Wood "insensitive" to terrorists

That's what Andrew Jaspan, editor-in-chief of The Age, Australia's most Left-wing daily newspaper, says.

Andrew Bolt reminds us that the "...the men who'd snatched him, kicked him in the head, kept him blindfolded and bound for 47 days, shaved him bald, killed two of his colleagues, made him beg for his life, and -- says a fellow hostage from Sweden -- shot several other prisoners in front of him."

Let's not forget Wood would also have seen all the reports of beheadings if not the actual videos of beheadings.

Said Jaspan: "I was, I have to say, shocked by Douglas Wood's use of the a---hole word, if I can put it like that, which I just thought was coarse and very ill-thought through and I think demeans the man and is one of the reasons why people are slightly sceptical of his motives and everything else.

"The issue really is largely, speaking as I understand it, he was treated well there. He says he was fed every day, and as such to turn around and use that kind of language I think is just insensitive."

This shows how far deranged the left really are. And as I said in an earlier post today:

Since the terrorists have "no positive agenda, no charismatic leader, virtually no territory of its own, and no great power suppliers", and lacks the support of ordinary Iraqis, why does the world press support them and attack America so much?

Becuase this is not about defeating terrorism, this is about defeating America, even if it means letting terrorists win. Such is the inverted world the left and the media have created.

So what was Wood's real sin that warranted this attack from Jaspan?

INSTEAD, he roared "God bless America" and praised the US-trained Iraqi soldiers -- Iraq's real freedom fighters -- who saved him, saying he was "proof positive that the current policies of the American and Australian governments is the right one".

It seems that to a Leftist, this makes Wood the boorish inferior of the killers who beat him and held him captive. It is why journalist Tracee Hutchinson, in an Age column, calls him a "blustering buffoon", moaning: "It was enough that his words God bless America had been played over and over on his release."
