Farah Tries to Keep Zombie Lie Alive
Topic: WorldNetDaily

As we've documented, the fact that Obama's 2008 reference to a "civilian national security force" involved an expansion of the foreign service and diplomatic and humanitarian aid hasn't kept WorldNetDaily from regularly lying about it and that Obama really meant he wanted to imprison his political enemies.

WND editor Joseph Farah gives the zombie lie another tired go-round in his Jan. 8 column, falsely asserting that "the media compliantly declined to pursue an explanation of Obama’s call for the creation of a 'civilian national security force.'" That's because the media didn't need to becuase Obama already did.

It's stunning that Farah would continue to peddle this baldfaced lie to his readers, long after it has been exposed as a lie.

Farah goes on to whine, "In short, he probably thinks people like me, who stand firmly behind the Constitution, represent more of a threat to national security than did Osama bin Laden." Hardly -- the only threat Farah poses with his lies is to ethical, honest journalism.
