Beyond Parody: CNN Fantasizes Al Qaeda Apology to Innocent Victims

Here's the headline:

So is Al Qaeda apologizing for Mark Bingham, or Todd Beamer, or Betty Ong? Not on your life; seems CNN didn't look closely enough at the story:

"We express our condolences to the families of the Muslim men, women and children killed in these criminal acts and we ask Allah to have mercy on those killed and accept them as shohadaa (martyrs)," he says in the video.

"We also express the same in regard to the unintended Muslim victims of the mujahedeen's operations against the crusaders and their allies and puppets, and to the countless faceless and nameless Muslim victims of the murderous crusades" in Afghanistan, Pakistan's Waziristan regions and Swat Valley, and elsewhere, he said.

It is a rare example of al Qaeda offering condolences to the families of those killed in the group's own attacks.

Seriously, did they miss a little adjective in there? Begins with "Mu" and ends with "slim"?

Hat Tip to Ann Althouse and Memeorandum.
