Terrorist Says He Was 'Prompted' to Kill U.S. Airmen By Anti-War Movie

The mainstream media will spend ten days losing their ever-loving minds blaming a Sarah Palin campaign map a killer never saw for that killer’s actions, but this news about a confessed terrorist admitting that a clip from Brian De Palma’s “Redacted” “prompted” him to murder two American airmen gets buried at the bottom of a Salt Lake City newspaper article:

[Arid] Uka gave a teary confession as his Frankfurt state court trial opened in August, saying that the night before the attack he had seen a video on Facebook that purported to show American soldiers raping a teenage Muslim girl. It turned out to be a scene from the 2007 Brian De Palma anti-war film “Redacted,” taken out of context.

Uka told the court the video prompted him to do anything possible to prevent American soldiers from going to Afghanistan. Under German law, the court is still required to hear all evidence in the case, even though Uka has confessed.

The defendant had already killed two U.S. airmen when he turned his pistol on Brewer, a 23-year-old from Gray, Tennessee, who was on the bus waiting with others to be taken to nearby Ramstein Air Base to fly to Afghanistan.

Remember how, during the lead up to the release of the “Passion of the Christ,” the leftist media was on high alert waiting for synagogues and crosses to be burned? And yet, not a word in the national media about how this particular Hollywood film “prompted” the murder of two American servicemen.

Buried. Memory-holed. Never happened. Carry on.

The Jawa Report has more on the two American heroes who stopped this Tinseltown-inspired Islamist.

The story wasn't quite as buried as all that; it was really an AP article carried by the Deseret News, but it sure hasn't gotten the play that every libelous crackpot leftist theory about the Tuscon shootings got.

I call that buried. Just doesn’t fit the narrative does it?

They need to ban all guns and knives and explosives and fire in all movies and TV shows.

If the confessed terrorist Uka had killed Brian De Palma instead of two US airmen we’d never hear the end of it.

Can’t help but wonder if CAIR -or perhaps the ACLU came up with such a lame defense. Islam IS NOT COMPATIBLE with our Western Civilization.Islam is not compatible with being a loyal and sane American.If a movie can be blamed for murder then I reckon we need to ban movies.
