Notes From The Underground

Has the ultimate undercover policeman surfaced? Bob Owens questions the timing of this AP story, and adds:

So it appears Jamil Hussein may be real. Good. that means there is a real person to question regarding 61 mostly uncorroborated stories provided as exclusives by Hussein to the Associated Press.

This includes the story that made him (in)famous, where Hussein and the AP claimed 24 people were killed–six by being pulled from a mosque, doused in kerosene, and purposefully burned alive, where the other 18 merely died in an “inferno” at another mosque under attack–during a series of four mosque attacks. In later AP stories, the four mosques trickled down to one, and 18 of the 24 dead mysteriously disappeared, without the Associated Press releasing a retraction or a correction.

I can hardly wait to see where this leads. Is “Jamilgate” over?

Heck no. It’s just getting good…


With Michelle Malkin and Eason Jordan on the way to Iraq, they should have quite an interesting interview with him. Or perhaps quite an interesting “Jamil & Me” video on Hot Air, if he’s suddenly, mysteriously, unavailable to talk.
