Michele Bachmann’s At It Again

A new transcript of Rep. Michele Bachmann’s (R-Minn.) April 9 interview on San Francisco AM station KSFO yields yet another error:

On the station’s morning show, she recounted the 2006 controversy of the so-called “flying imams,” six Muslim clerics who were removed from a US Airways flight after passengers grew uncomfortable with their behavior. “The imams, the imams were actually attending, ah, Congressman Keith Ellison’s (D-Minn.) victory celebration, when he won as a member of Congress,” Bachmann said.

Actually, they were in Minneapolis attending the fourth annual conference of the North American Imams Federation, as The Minnesota Independent, The New York Times and others reported at the time.

She also related that local “Somalis have been recruited, ah, taken, apparently to, ah, training camps, and, ah, one of the Somalis, ah, became a suicide bomber in the Middle East.” While there’s evidence that these young men weren’t “taken” but saved up to fund their own trips, the error here is in the story of a local Somali man who is thought to have died as a suicide bomber: He did so not in the “Middle East,” but in Somalia.

The interview, reported on earlier, featured Bachmann calling President Obama “shameful” for allegedly “bowing before the king of Saudi Arabia … and then lying about it.” In it, Bachmann also discussed a range of topics, including how she believes the Obama administration’s cap-and-trade energy plan would “double” monthly energy bills and send us “back to four and five dollars a gallon for gas” and that the concentrations of Somali and Hmong immigrants, two groups that come from warm climates to chilly Minnesota, were the result of a government “relocation” plan: “So I think this was a decision on the part of the federal government,” she said.

Here’s the transcript of Bachmann’s KSFO interview, from the blog, Dump Bachmann.

Paul Schmelzer is the editor of TWI’s sister site, The Minnesota Independent.
