James O'Keefe

James O’Keefe

We’re at a loss here: somehow, this story slipped past our ever-watchful editors’ attention! The takeaway, of course, is pretty clear: dressing up as Osama bin Laden and crossing the border illegally is not a good idea:

Last August James O’Keefe entered the US illegally wearing an Osama Bin Laden costume while his assistants took a video of the stunt. Then they put it up on You Tube. Not surprisingly that video of O’Keefe illegally crossing the border caught the attention of US Customs who frowns on that sort of thing. [Monday,] while reentering the US O’Keefe was detained and discovered to his dismay his stunt got him placed on a US Customs watch list, and he’ll remain on that watch list having crossed the border illegally.

The arrogant, narcissistic pseudojournalist, whose dishonest depiction of ACORN employees in a “sting” video has seen him on the six-figure losing side of a high-profile lawsuit, decided to tweet his reentry travails:

O’Keefe starts off with a pompous comment about just wait until they see what an important journalist they’re dealing with! Then wishing the ACLU would intervene on his behalf.


No, it’s not because you’re a journalist, whice by the way you are not, but because you decided to dress up like a guy who murdered nearly 3000 Americans and illegally cross the border.

They’re with the rest of the reality-based world, laughing not only at your puerile, egocentric behavior, but the fact that you will be forever known as “fake documentarian and professional Osama bin Laden impersonator.”

‘Nuff said!
