UPDATE 3: see picture at the end of the article. About 50 activists were ready less than 24 hours after her “shooting” with slick banners, in English, for a march that took place on Oct. 10th. How they got them done so quickly and why they chose to print them up in English is anyone’s guess.
UPDATE 2: Single Bullet Theory redux – a single bullet went from her forehead into her skull, then somehow manged to end up in her shoulder near her neck. They had to change the story of her being shot in the head AND the neck because even as they kept putting out pics of her with her neck covered up like this one, someone screwed up and published the photo I include below which clearly shows she wasn’t shot in the neck. “Malala was shot twice — once in the head and once in the neck — but her wounds were not life-threatening, according to Tariq Mohammad, a doctor at the main hospital in Mingora.” RT
You mean to tell me a doctor can’t tell if she was shot in the neck? Look at that picture I post just below… you tell me if she was shot in the neck.
“Official sources told Dawn that the single bullet, which hit Malala’s head, had pierced down to her backbone.
We have thoroughly examined her, she is in critical condition. The bullet traveled from her head and then lodged in the back shoulder, near the neck,” a doctor told the AFP agency, according to Dawn, requesting anonymity as he was not authorized to speak to media. NBC “News”
And what about that shot in the neck? What kind of doctor says she was shot in the neck?
Shot in the neck? oops…. better fix that story
UPDATE: see photo at the end of this article. Did the injured Malala actually walk across the tarmac to get on the chopper that took her to the military hospital? (H/T Jan)
Kony2012 , Nurse Nayirah, Gay Girl from Damascus, Babies in Syrian hospital story, the Nada story from Iran ,CNN’s Misogynistic Cell Phone Porn Propagnada , the “Obeidy” gang rape story, the Jessica Lynch lies, the Pat Tillman lies, etc. etc. etc…
Endless, mind-numbingly stupid pro-war propaganda designed for maximum emotional context in an era of identity driven “news”
“She is our daughter,” Prime Minister Raja Pervez Ashraf
“In attacking Malala, the terrorists have failed to grasp that she is not only an individual, but an icon of courage and hope who vindicates the great sacrifices that the people of Swat and the nation gave, for wresting the valley from the scourge of terrorism,” General Ashfaq Parvez Kayani
Two days after the Pakistani military put down a protest against U.S. drone strikes killing innocent civilians in Pakistan, along comes the fake Taliban to claim credit for shooting little innocent Malala in cold blood. The Pakistani military was all over this story from day one and she is now in some military hospital recovering from her “wounds”. Say nothing of the fact that the Pakistani military is deeply imbedded with the Pentagon and the fact that the Peace Pipeline (Iran-Pakistan Gas Pipeline Project) is well underway while Unical’s Trans Afghan Pipeline is languishing.
The Iran-Pakistan Gas Pipeline Project is a major point of contention between U.S. and Pakistani governments. Russia is also now involved as it was Gasprom who stepped up to cut a deal with the Pakistani government to finance and build their section of the pipeline which will take Iranian oil and LNG to areas in Pakistan and India. This was the market that Unical wanted to reach with their Trans Afghan pipeline when they were attempting to cut a deal with the Taliban back in 1999 and 2000. Survey work is to be completed this month with construction starting by December. Iran has completed their section.
There is a lot at stake in Pakistan these days and suddenly we have the story of little innocent Malala plastered on every news channel and paper in the country. This is the story of Malala Yoursafzai: neoliberal near-martyr of the Global Free Market Wars
