Cablegate: Obligatory Post About 'Lady Al Qaeda' Aafia Siddiqui

Enough already people...be you of progressive or Muslim view. She was gonna kill and she was caught. Why TF do you think we call her 'Lady Al Qaeda"? Sheesh

End of story

Visit our Aafia Siddiqui archives, take a aspirin and call me in the morning.

UPDATE by Rusty: Just to clarify, this numnuts that SH linked to cites a number of leaked documents released through WikiLeaks which referenced Aafia Siddique or other women prisoners -- all of which substantiate the US version of the story. ALL OF THEM.

Yet many conspiracy minded Leftists and perhaps a majority of Muslims still believe in the innocence of Siddique and that a vast conspiracy exists against her (and, to some, against Muslim women in general).

Which is why the cables are perfect to illustrate the lunacy of conspiracy theories: since they clearly refute the underlying premises of the conspiracy, then the cables themselves must be part of the same conspiracy!

It's not enough that absence of evidence is taken as a sign of the conspiracy, but in this case the clear evidence against the conspiracy is taken as a sign of the conspiracy itself.

Idiotic.
