The Bowling Green Massacre

The Bowling Green Massacre wasn’t covered by the media, according to Counselor to the President of the United States Kellyanne Conway in a Thursday interview on MSNBC. Shame on them, right? Two Iraqi men in America became radicalized and carried out a massacre, and not a peep from what Sarah Palin (remember her?) calls the “lame-stream media”. Heck, even President Obama slapped a ban on immigration for six months because of it! A big deal!

Except for one little detail. It never happened.

Bowling Green. That’s in Kentucky, if I’m not mistaken. (I’m not. It is. I checked.) Two Iraqi men who had been living there were convicted of making IEDs while they were in Iraq, and later attempting to send money and weapons to Al-Qaeda in Iraq, from Kentucky. Here’s the info on that. (You may want to check that link quick, the way things are disappearing from Federal websites these days it might not be there much longer. Especially once the administration realizes that it exists.)
