Daniel Klaidman, Obfuscator Extraordinaire

LGF has the video of Newsweek’s Washington Bureau Chief Daniel Klaidman, on Al Jazeera hiding, in way too many words, the retraction they made last week for the now known to be unsubstantiated assertion the US military flush a Koran down a toilet at Gitmo.

LGF has an excerpt of what Klaidman said. I can't imagine how much worse that rambling pile of words that passed Klaidman's lips is to understand once it got translated into Arabic.

Now that I think about it, the thought process prompted that emanation of ambiguity from Klaidman is as convoluted as the original Periscope article.

When it comes down to it, these folks just shouldn't be journalists. But they would be perfect for jobs at the CIA encrypting messages using plain English.
