Frightening news out of New Mexico today:

Holy crap.

Indeed. Which is why it’s so important to fully expose it. The Associated Press failed in that regard.

Well, AP?

That seems … important. So, why’d they leave it out of their follow-up tweet, too?

Come on, AP.

More from the New York Post:

The five people arrested for child abuse in New Mexico after they were found living with 11 children in “Third World” conditions are related to a controversial Muslim faith leader in Brooklyn who has been linked to the 1993 World Trade Center bombings.

Siraj Wahhaj, 40; Lucas Morton, 40; Jany Leveille, 35; Hujrah Wahhaj, 38; and Subhanah Wahhaj, 35, were arrested and charged with 11 counts of felony child abuse for keeping the kids, ages 1 to 15, in squalid conditions at a compound made of garbage in the New Mexico desert.

Siraj Wahhaj is also accused of kidnapping his 3-year-old son Abdul-Ghani Wahhaj from Georgia in December.

Siraj Wahhaj is the son of the Brooklyn imam of the same name, 68, who heads the Masjid At-Taqwa in Bedford-Stuyvesant, several congregants at the mosque confirmed to The Post.

Hujrah and Subhanah are the elder Wahhaj’s daughters. Morton is married to Sabhanah, and Leveille is the younger Wahhaj’s wife, according to public records and statements by the imam.

Had no idea? Maybe that was the AP’s point. Their article at least offers a little more information, but no details about Wahhaj’s background:

But tweeters in search of outrage have no time to read the articles.

And we can’t have stuff like that getting out. Not when the NRA is gun grabbers’ favorite punching bag.

Right on cue.

Eh, that’s OK. Mission accomplished, AP.
