AIM's Kincaid Promotes Debunked Saudi-Boston Conspiracy
Topic: Accuracy in Media

The fact that the idea of a Saudi national having participated in the Boston bombings has been discredited apparently isn't going to keep Cliff Kincaid from ranting about it.

So Kincaid starts his April 30 AIM column this way:

The possible involvement of a Saudi in the Boston terror attacks is being curiously ignored or downplayed by most of the mainstream media. Steve Emerson, Glenn Beck, and others have pressed for answers, however. Beck has issued a full report with updates on the controversy. 

Nothing like picking the even more conspiracy-addled Beck to vouch for your own conspiracy, Cliff.

Nevertheless, Kincaid continues:

Fox News reporter Bret Baier looked into the alleged Saudi role in the bombings and said the Saudi student became the subject of an “internal document” and put on the “no fly list” because of “an abundance of caution and out of diligence,” according to U.S. officials. However, Baier echoed officials as saying there was no evidence of the man’s involvement in the bombings.

Columnist Diana West says we can’t trust Fox News on this matter, since it is part-Saudi-owned.

West is another conspiracy-addled birther dead-ender who's not exactly the most trustworthy person Kincaid could have chosen. Unless Kincaid was looking for people who make him look sane, that is.
