Yeah, the only independent voice beyond the control of US media interests. Let the spin continue...

It's about time.... Al-Jazeera has done nothing but enflame the religous views of the muslims with their one-sided reporting. Should have been done weeks ago. They do not represent anything but terroristic points of view in their reports and photographs. I would not be surprised if a terrorist cell was found operating in this company.

Oops, was that Al Jazeera we hit. No big loss. I just hope they don't do what Serbia did and rebuild it with 24 hours.

That guy must have damn good eyes to read "property of US government" on the side of that missle as it was screaming toward the building...

Independant my ass. All they did was parrot the Taliban line. The only spin is the paranoid anti-government crap that's being spun all too often on this message board.
