NPR's Al Qaeda "Officials"

I almost flew outta my seat while listening to NPR radio this morning. They were discussing the Pakistan gun battle that killed terrorist leader, Amjad Hussain Farooqi, and they addressed him as an Al Qaeda Official!

That goes beyond being impartial. They are giving terrorists credibility by promoting them as public officials. Is appeasement gaining a foothold in the USA?
