Fact Checking The Sunday Shows - May 8, 2011

The right wing deployed its war-on-terror heavy hitters to Sunday's political shows to proclaim that waterboarding — or "enhanced interrogation" — was what got us to Osama bin Laden. Former Vice President Dick Cheney (R) said those methods got us "the early leads" while his daughter Liz claimed CIA Director Leon Panetta credits the bin Laden intelligence to harsh interrogations, Rudy Giuliani (R-NY) insisted they played "a significant role," and former Defense Sec. Donald Rumsfeld (R) said "it's clear" that the interrogation program "worked." But the pro-torture right protests too much; there's no evidence "enhanced interrogation" led us to bin Laden, and Panetta's comments were not so clear-cut as Liz Cheney claimed. Meanwhile, on CNN, former Rep. Tom Davis (R-VA) misled viewers about Democratic debt-reduction plans and claimed — wrongly — that the Bush tax cuts haven't helped the wealthy or hurt the rest of us.

Zuhdi Jasser: Rep. Peter King's Conspiracy-Touting Credential-Free Star Witness

Rep. Peter King plans to begin hearings on March 10 to investigate the "radicalization of the American Muslim community," allegedly with the aim of shining a light on the supposed failure of America's Muslim communities to cooperate with law enforcement officials investigating terrorist plots. His star witness is Dr. M. Zuhdi Jasser, a physician and former U.S. Navy medical officer with no background in law enforcement or public policy. What Jasser lacks in expertise, he makes up for in ties to right-wing media figures, appearances in documentaries that have been rejected by PBS and the New York Police Department, and a willingness to call Muslim civil rights groups with which he disagrees "fronts" for the Muslim Brotherhood.

Rep. Peter King To Call Glenn Beck's Favorite Muslim To Testify On Muslim Extremism In America

Rep. Peter King (R-NY) has said that Zuhdi Jasser, who professionally fear mongers about the dangers of "American Islamist organizations," will be the star witness at King's upcoming hearings on Muslim radicalism in the United States. King is not the only right-wing figure to tout Jasser: Glenn Beck has declared Jasser "one Muslim that we were all searching for after 9-11" and "a voice that I trust." Moreover, in recent days, Glenn Beck has called upon Jasser to help push his theory that the uprisings in Egypt were the result of communists and Islamists engaged in a conspiracy to create a Marxist revolution or an Islamic caliphate. Even many conservatives have rejected Beck's claims as "delusional," "wacky," and evidence that Beck is "out of control."
