ABC: Al Qaeda And Taliban Being Helped By Global Warming

Noel Sheppard of Newsbusters catches Charlie “War is not good for children and other living things’” Gibson spinning wildly:

Global warming is helping America’s sworn enemies al Qaeda as well as the Taliban in Afghanistan.

So claimed ABCNews.com’s “World News Webcast” Friday in a segment not only designed to increase America’s fear of Al Gore’s money-making bogeyman, but also give cover to President Obama as things in Afghanistan continue to spiral out of control.

Talk about your amazingly convenient, two-fisted, win-win situations.

“World News” anchor Charles Gibson ominously began:

We don’t usually think of the Taliban and global warming in the same sentence, but U.S. intelligence studies are showing a connection. For this week’s “Nature’s Edge” notebook, Bill Blakemore explains how climate change may be giving a boost to the Taliban and to al Qaeda.

Blakemore began his report: This study by eleven U.S. generals and admirals shows how global warming is playing into the hands of terrorist groups like the Taliban in many countries often because of worsening drought.

But if Goreball Worming is aiding the Taliban, isn’t that a good thing based on the Obama administration’s spin du jour?

(Incidentally, does Gibson ever watch England’s state-run media?)
