CNS Still Pushing Dubious KSM Claim

An April 24 article by Penny Starr continues CNS' promotion of the claim that information obtained from Khalid Shaikh Mohammed via so-called enhanced interrogation "allowed the U.S. government to stop a planned terrorist attack in Los Angeles," which CNS claims to have verified with the CIA. At no point does Starr acknowledge compelling evidence contradicting it: As we've detailed, the Bush administration has claimed that the Los Angeles plot was foiled a year before Mohammed was captured.

An April 24 CNS article by Fred Lucas similarly repeats the claim while ignoring contradictory evidence.

Meanwhile, the dubious claim continues to spread: Hal Lindsey repeats it in his April 24 WorldNetDaily column.

UPDATE: David Limbaugh's April 24 column, published at Newsmax and WorldNetDaily, repeat it as well.
