Kamal Saleem’s Tall Tales

Kamal Saleem, who lives here in Michigan and claims to be an ex-terrorist, has been telling breathless tales of his adventures as a seven year old bad guy — yes, seven years old — on Mat Staver’s radio show. I suspect these stories are as reliable as his others have been, which are doubtful at best. As Right Wing Watch puts it, he’s the Forrest Gump of the wingnut set, claiming to have been involved in every terrorist plot since the sacking of Rome. Here’s a particularly ridiculous story about him running guns into Israel at 8 years old and getting into a firefight with the Israeli military.


About Ed Brayton

After spending several years touring the country as a stand up comedian, Ed Brayton tired of explaining his jokes to small groups of dazed illiterates and turned to writing as the most common outlet for the voices in his head. He has appeared on the Rachel Maddow Show and the Thom Hartmann Show, and is almost certain that he is the only person ever to make fun of Chuck Norris on C-SPAN.

    And then aliens came down and I killed them too. Then I put out a big fire and went home for milkshakes.

    So why isn’t this pathological bullshitter in Gitmo, where people are locked up and tortured because maybe there might be the slight possibility of a chance that perhaps they could have talked with someone who knew someone who did something?

    Because the government knows he is batshit crazy. Then why do the wingnuts listen to him? Because they’re equally crazy.

    Being the Forest Gump of the wingnut set is not unusual because there are so many trees…

    This can’t be authentic. There’s no mention of Babe the Blue Ox.

    “Hey Kamal Saleem you’re eight years old and you’ve survived a firefight with the Israeli military as a gun runner in Israel, what are going to do now?”

    Kamal Saleem: “I’m going to Disneyland!”

  • Pinky

    Ah hem – “what are you going to do now” sounds better than “what are going to do now?”

    What the heck, its only the fifth mistake I’ve made this year month day hour.

    There’s a word for this kind of person. Generally, we refer to them as fabulists.

  • dingojack

    katie – While I’m no expert, I think the word that’s used professionally is ‘delusional‘.

    So he not only was a terrorist at eight, but a recruiter?
