Cliff Kincaid, of Accuracy In Media, was interviewed on CNBC’s The Kudlow Report in early January:
Larry Kudlow: Is Al Jazeera a threat to our national security? My next guest says yes, the terror television network is what he calls it. And they paid Al Gore to give it a back door route to U.S. media access…. A terrorist network, that’s what you’re calling it?
Cliff Kincaid: That’s right. This is oil money, it’s blood money that they’ve given to Al Gore. Because we’re not going to forget 9/11. This is the network that was the voice of Osama Bin Laden. He was responsible for 9/11. I was coming into Washington, D.C. on 9/11. I saw the smoke pouring out of the Pentagon. I’ve been to New York City. I’ve seen the 9/11 Memorial. We’re not going to forget those victims of terrorism. And we can’t forget the fact that Al Jazeera was the mouthpiece of Osama Bin Laden and has been working hand and glove with terrorist groups ever since.
Kudlow: And Cliff let me just ask you this, something, one of the things about this obviously that troubles me, but one of them is the whole Glenn Beck business. A year ago Glenn offered to purchase this failing network, whatever it is, Current TV, 250 million bucks, that ain’t nothing. Gore wouldn’t give him the time of day. A year later, Gore sells it, okay he got 500 million bucks but he didn’t know that when Glenn Beck first offered it. Why is Al Gore going with anti-American, anti-Christian, anti-Jewish, anti-Israeli, anti-everything operation which was Al Qaeda’s mouthpiece instead of Glenn Beck? Why? Glenn Beck’s a good American. Why do you think, what’s motivating Al Gore?
Kincaid: Well, you’re going to have try to to get him on the show. But this is the equivalent during World War II, of turning over American Broadcast facilities to Axis Sally or Tokyo Rose. I mean they were the enemies. And we are still at war with terrorism, Islamic terrorism today. We’re got film footage, that we’ve produced for Accuracy In Media showing terrorists who were captured in Iraq who killed American soldiers, who said that they came to Iraq to kill Americans because of Al Jazeera. This network has American blood on its hands and we call on the Congress of the United States to investigate this deal before it goes through completely. We are urging Congressman Michael McCall, Chairman of the House Homeland Security Committee to open hearing into this immediately.
Kudlow: Will they? Do you have any evidence that they will open hearings?
Kincaid: We know they’ve been getting a lot of phone calls. We’ve been generating those today, we know the Chairman McCall is aware of our campaign and what we want to see done. The Congress has a role here, where’s the oversight of this regime, in the middle east, Qatar, which pretends to be a friend of the United States, which supports Hamas, which supports Hezbollah, giving Al Gore a hundred million dollars in blood money. How can this be allowed to go through?
Kudlow: Correct me if I’m wrong but Al Jazeera is really closely linked to the Muslim Brotherhood, another terrorist organization is it not?
Kincaid: That’s right. We actually have the quotes from the Muslim Brotherhood itself referring to Al Jazeera basically as their mouthpiece as the great Arab media organization. This is an outlet totally funded by the state of Qatar, a Jihadist supporting middle eastern government which wants to really destroy the United States from within and our fear is that this kind of imflammatory programming could inspire homegrown Jihadism from within our own borders.
