‘Notorious?’ BBC Gitmo Bias!

The BBC’s Ally McBull, as I used to think the name was, or, more accurately, Aleem Maqboul, a much less Scots sort of name, was on at noon, Jakarta time, today, wittering about Gitmo.



Aware of what to expect from almost any UK Pravda hack, including him, if we cast our minds back to

Say A Prayer – Justice For Derek Chauvin!

Aleem Maqboul!

… I was not in the least surprised when, within moments of beginning his wittering, he declared that the holding centre for enemy aliens was ‘notorious!’

Well-known, yes, it certainly is, but ‘notorious?’

It may be argued, by polemicists, such as me, that Guantanamo became notorious for dereliction of duty…..



…when Obama turned loose some of the sectarian savages detained there.

BBC only had one guest to hold forth on the issue, James Connel, a lawyer for an inmate, and he definitely felt Gitmo was ‘notorious!’

Well, he would, wouldn’t he?

Nobody was brought on to challenge the  ‘notorious’ smear.

Ali Baba, or whatever his name is, should not be into polemics.

He works for a public broadcasting outfit…


…with a requirement in its charter to cover news impartially.



Yet they almost never do! .
