Obama’s “Counterterrorism Center” feeds info to Associated Propaganda to get their version out before independent outlet can publish.

Spy Agency Stole Scoop From Media Outlet And Handed It To The AP

NY Times jammed its claws into this meat too with a very strangely misleading set of numbers. In the first paragraph — the one everyone reads — they claim:

“of whom about 5,000 have been placed on one or more watch lists”

 Then, in the 4th paragraph, where fewer than half of readers are likely still reading, given the data presented at the top…

“Over all, the number of people listed in the center’s database of terrorism suspects surpassed one million in June 2013, the documents said. Of those, approximately 680,000 were on the watch lists,”

Say what?

They claim 5,000 are on watch lists. They claim 680,000 are on watch lists.

Sense?

The Times is downplaying the severity by misleading readers at the top of the story.  And it’s blatant. It makes no sense at all, except as propaganda.

 

PS

Could it be fuzzy math???
