Teabaggers Suspected of Poisoning Food at Fort Jackson

Wait, did I say Teabaggers? Oh, sorry, for a second there I was imagining myself to be a member of the mainstream media.

I meant to say Arabic-speaking Muslim soldiers.
The U.S. Army is investigating allegations that soldiers were attempting to poison the food supply at Fort Jackson in South Carolina.

The ongoing probe began two months ago, Chris Grey, a spokesman for the Army’s Criminal Investigation Division, told Fox News.

The Army is taking the allegations “extremely seriously,” Grey said, but so far, "there is no credible information to support the allegations."

The suspects were part of a Arabic translation program called "09 Lima" and use Arabic as their first language, two sources told Fox News. Another military source said they were Muslim.
Of course we'll wait and see what shakes out from this investigation and won't proclaim an entire group guilty as some today have been so eager to do. We'd rather not tarnish our reputation by acting like knee-jerk liberal news "reporters" who disregard facts in order to promote their agenda.

Coverage of this story as opposed to the nutcase in Austin today should be an interesting case study in media bias. That is if anyone outside of Fox News even mentions it.

Update: Oy, I should have known someone would beat me to this snark.
