Army officer attempts to overthrow the President

This officer "is on trial effectively for calling for a military coup d’etat to overthrow [parliament] and the president."

No, no, it's not in an Arab country. This is America. Uh huh.

Oh but hang on just a second, have you changed your mind: "[This officer] does not call for the ouster of the president." But I thought...

Never mind, let's keep reading: "The real "wholesale slaughter" is the one carried out daily by al-Jazeera’s terrorist bombers."

Excuse me?
