Youtube Speak With Forked Tongue

Youtube made the following statement to World Net Daily on April 9th regarding the removal of some Islamic Army in Iraq propaganda, specifically a copy of Juba the Baghdad Sniper showing the deaths of American Soldiers.

Via World Net Daily: Our community understands the rules and effectively polices the site for inappropriate material. The users can flag content that they feel is inappropriate and once it is flagged, YouTube reviews the content and removes it from the system within minutes if it violates our Terms of Use. This combined with our proprietary technology helps us to enforce the rules. We also disable the accounts of repeat offenders," YouTube tells users in its policy.
Hmmm minutes huh? Doesn't Youtube really mean, "Within minutes when there is a reporter on the phone?"

I thought so, so we notified Youtube of another Juba video on their service. The video shows American servicemen being killed and contains some of the same scenes as the video from the WND article. Which, by the way, had also been listed on Stop Internet Terror before WND contacted Youtube.


It has now been about 27,360 minutes since Youtube was notified of this video, yet it remains!

Andrea maintains a complete list of all Juba videos on Youtube here.

User "JubaIAI continues to host videos from various terror groups on youtube here.

A Pakistani user is maintaining al-Qaeda's media wing as-Sahab's Youtube channel here.

Hamas in Iraq is still maintaining a Youtube Channel here. We only need to smack down one more of Hamas in Iraq's videos to suspend Hamas in Iraq. So lets concentrate our focus on this one...


So I reckon Youtube is full of it. No?


Please flag the videos and email youtube.

Remember the primary reason Youtube removes videos is the number of complaints. Thanks in advance to all who participate.
