Fox News Says Hezbollah 'Certain' To Nuke Major City
Channel is terror group's biggest cheerleader as Americans hit with the sum of all fearmongering
Following the ceaseless bombing of Lebanon, Fox News has gone thermonuclear in its mission to drive fear into the hearts of Americans by insisting that Hezbollah's use of a nuclear device in a major US or Israeli is inevitable and that only increased surveillance of Americans can stop it.
Couched in a bizarre Hannity and Colmes demonstration, where a Geiger counter (soon to be a common household object apparently) was used to measure radiation of packets placed in the two presenter's pockets, guest Cham Dallas, director for the Center for Mass Destruction Defense, was determined to get his message across.
Dallas: Sometime in the future there's going to be a nuclear weapon used in the united States - certainly a radiological device is going to be used and a lot of radioactivity is going to fall on American citizens.
Colmes: You say that like it's a certainty, like there's no question it's going to happen.
Dallas: There's no doubt in my mind that at some point in the future we will have a radiological device probably soon and a nuclear device at some point five or ten years after.
Dallas fingered Pakistan and North Korea as the likely suppliers of nuclear weapons without informing the viewers that the receipts for this technology are in the hands of the US government - Rumsfeld fast-tracking nuclear capability to North Korea and the Bush family protecting A.Q. Khan's network.
Not content with saying it twice, Dallas snapped up the chance provided by Hannity to repeat his doomsday creed a third time.
Hannity (referring to Hezbollah and Al-Qaeda): Do you doubt that these terror groups could get a weapon - if they did there's no doubt they would use it against Israel is there?
Dallas: There's no doubt in mind mind that if I should say when one of these terror groups gets a weapon like Hezbollah - within the next decade - they will use it within a time of their choosing, but they would use it.
And a fourth time!
Hannity: So the likelihood is that within ten years it would not be shocking to you in any way for people to turn on this news channel and find out that a nuclear device has gone off in a major city around the world?
Dallas: I'm certain of it.
And a fifth time!
Hannity: You're certain of it - you have no doubt?
Dallas: There's no doubt in my mind about it.
Five times in the space of two minutes - nuke - major city - inevitable - rinse, wash, repeat.
Nuke - major city - inevitable - sell your rights down the river for a geiger counter.
As if this overdose of 'duck and cover' type fearmongering wasn't enough to stomach, the next day Fox's 'Big Story' show hosted by John Gibson picked up the 'you're all gonna die' baton and ran with it with glee.
Gibson's guest was CEO of Investigative Management Group Robert Strang, who makes a mint from building up security companies and selling them on for tidy profits - hyping imaginary terror threats puts bread on his table.
Set to accompanying booms and explosions on one side of the screen, Gibson and Strang eulogized about Hezbollah's ties to Al-Qaeda and how their deadly cells were ready for activation within the US.
Saying a massive terror attack on US or Israeli soil was all but certain, Strang pleaded with fellow guest Judge Andrew Napolitano to increase surveillance of phone calls and e mails - intoning that only Big Brother could save us from the inevitability of mushroom clouds over America.
