Lying as natural as breathing, part 2

A couple of people decided to look up Nael Barghouti, the person I mentioned in my last post as supposedly the record-breaking prisoner. The only place we see that name mentioned is as the architect of the Park Hotel bombing that killed 20 in 2002.

If he is in fact that same guy, then the article quoted was even more of a lie than I thought. Barghouti would have only been in prison a maximum of 7 consecutive years and calling him a "political prisoner" would also be an outright lie.

Par for the course.
