    Why would they make up something that specific, which can do nothing but harm this guy?

    This isn't a misquote -- it couldn't be -- so it would have to be a wholesale fabrication. Why?

    Whether you voted for them or not, like them or not, they are OUR presidents. WE will handle (or not) anything that needs handling. It falls into the line of "I can bitch at my spouse/child/parents, if YOU do...all hell will break loose on your heads" sort of thing.

    So let them put bounty on their heads. They have to get through us to do it. And speaking for myself, I'd put up a fight to the death for either of them Why? Cuz they are OURS.Not theirs. And it's an insult to all americans.

    Just my humble opinion.

    It might be scummy, but it's not making something up out of whole cloth. It's not the same thing at all.

    Mind you, I'm not prejudging this matter. He might have said it, but I'm not going to take a journalist's word for it that he did.
    Unless that specific paper had it out for him, Occam's razor cuts toward his having said it. He has far more reason to deny it than the paper does to fabricate it.

    Are you just being obtuse? This was a story about a specific man saying specific things about specific people, referencing a specific event where the US put a bounty on the leader of a terrorist group; his own "bounty" is supposed to be response to it.

    And I ask you again . . . why?

    Blood libel against Jews is ancient hatred. Saying Obama was born in Kenya is anti-Obama. Saying Bush was behind 9/11 is anti-Bush, anti-government, anti-Republican, anti-Jew, all kinds of things which make sense when you consider the source. Why THEY would do it is obvious.

    This doesn't. Why would a Pakistani paper make something up about a Pakistani Muslim defending a Pakistani Islamist group and making statements against US Presidents?

    Bush does not need to stand trial and Obama shouldn't have anything brought against him.

    So what if it's true? Fair is fair. What I am curious about is why a member of our closest ally's government is so eager to declare himself our enemy-- and why his constituents would elect him in such a case.

    If a politician in the US declared a bounty on prominent British officials, I can guarantee that he would lose his next election.

    Lords aren't elected.

    I don't see why I should have to risk my life for leaders I don't want that perpetuate human rights abuses.

    I think that Presidents of the United States should be just as afraid of the consequences of human rights abuses and war crimes as the leader of any other country.
    Also, we need to legalize recreational drugs and prostitution.

    He is not elected and not part of the sitting government.

    Doubt that. People would not care.
