Syrian Destabilization Campaign: Kronen Zeitung Photoshop Propaganda

by Scott Creighton

UPDATE: The Obama administration has cleared the way for U.S. NGOs to provide financial and technical support to the marauding terrorist groups in Syria.

The Treasury Department’s Office of Foreign Asset Control (OFAC) last week sent the waiver to Brian Sayers, of the Syrian Support Group, which describes itself as “a United States-based non-profit organization committed to supporting the Free Syrian Army.”

“The OFAC decision is huge,” Sayers said. “It gets us the leeway to support the Free Syrian Army in broad terms.”

The Syrian Support Group, according to Sayers, aims to “provide direct support for the FSA, and to stand up the Free Syrian Army as the future Syrian Army,” which “requires both short term things — financial operations, logistics support, communications— but also long-term support: security sector reform, a training doctrine.” AntiWar

Apparently it’s now OK to provide weapons and cash to terrorist organizations just so long as you are an NGO funded by the same corporations that will swoop in and pick the meat off the bones of the Syrian civilization in the aftermath of the pending humanitarian shock and awe.

Remember when the BBC ran a photo taken in Iraq and claimed it was all the little kids killed in the Houla Massacre (which was actually committed by the “Free Syrian Army” by the way)? Remember “Syrian Danny” or the “Gay Girl from Damascus“? Remember those little pro-regime change psyops?

Well, thanks to a head’s up from one of my readers, we have a new bit of disinformation to add to the growing list of efforts made by the international complicit press to demonize the Assad government in Syria. A paper in Austria has taken an image from Homs and Photoshopped a family onto it and now they claim it’s from Aleppo.

CNN’s Arwa Damon is at it Again – Filing Fake Reports About Syria

by Scott Creighton

One day after Glenn Greenwald declared that CNN’s Erin Burnett was the “worst of the worst” of the lying war-mongering talking heads on corporate media, CNN’s Arwa Damon throws her hat back in the ring with a more than despicable challenge to the title.

A quick note about Arwa before we get into her new chicken hawk efforts: I exposed a fraudulent little pro-war/regime change bit she did a while back in June of 2011. She went somewhere (probably Bahrain) and filmed what she claimed was a refugee camp for Syrians suffering under the Assad led government. It was complete bullshit, but she did manage to exploit some little kids who were there, brought by their paid parents no doubt, trying to make them seem frightened and lost. They looked at her as if she was an idiot.

Arwa really likes using children to try to help spur another brutal NATO bombardment of civilian targets, this time in Syria. She must get paid well or have absolutely no conscience what-so-ever. To use children as pawns in an effort to bring about a military invasion which will undoubtedly kill and maim children in the process is morally reprehensible.

”Gay Girl” Psyop Completely Unraveling – Another “Sock Puppet” Bites the Dust

by Scott Creighton

To believe MSNBC’s version of things these are just two normal straight guys who just happened to get caught up in a nearly full time hobby of pretending to be lesbian women… just for the challenge of it.

Yeah right. This newly exposed member of the psyop industry called himself a “sock puppet” in an MSNBC interview… what does that tell you?

Tom MacMaster is the “Gay Girl in Damascus”

by Scott Creighton

Back on June 9th I wrote Amina Arraf: The Nurse Nayirah of Syria.  I was comparing the current “Gay Girl in Damascus” story to the old 90-91 propaganda effort of Nurse Nayirah, the ambassador’s daughter who pretended to be a nurse and went before the U.S. congress and lied about Saddam’s army throwing babies out of incubators in Kuwait (I guess no one back then ever wondered why the heck Saddam wanted incubators).

Turns out Electronic Intifada was all over this story and they dug deeper and deeper til they found out who was really behind it. They found out it was a couple from the United States and after the Washington Post also got into the act, the two confessed.

Statements from Tom MacMaster and Britta Froelicher.

In part, this is the confession he posted on his fraudulent “Gay Girl in Damascus” blog…

I do not believe that I have harmed anyone — I feel that I have created an important voice for issues that I feel strongly about.

I only hope that people pay as much attention to the people of the Middle East and their struggles in thıs year of revolutions. The events there are beıng shaped by the people living them on a daily basis. I have only tried to illuminate them for a western audience.” Tom MacMaster

Only in America could someone actually claim that they have not harmed anyone after they attempted to start a war, an illegal occupation, based on lies.

The Syrian government had this to say about it:

MacMaster’s hoax aimed at enhancing continuous fabrications and lies against Syria in term (sic) of kidnapping bloggers and activists,”  CNN

Without even a hint of irony, MacMaster still tried to hold onto the propaganda saying that this is all being shaped by people living it, living in Syria. MacMaster is from Stone Mountain Georgia and Scotland.

His wife/girlfriend sent a Tweet to a guy from NPR stating that they were currently “on vacation” in Turkey and they just wanted to have fun right now and not deal with “all this mess”. Nice huh? Doing their best to set-up the next Nurse Nayirah story for an invasion of Syria and then it’s off to Turkey to probably set up another little “pro-democracy” effort there as well.

Anyway, that little bit of propaganda didn’t last long.

Amina Arraf: The Nurse Nayirah of Syria

by Scott Creighton

A few days ago a humanitarian story emerged about a gay Syrian blogger who had been taken by the Syrian authorities for saying bad things about the government. It was just pure propaganda. Like the Jessica Lynch story or the “incubator babies” propaganda, this one was tugging at the heart strings a bit too hard and now lies on the trash heap in complete disrepute. Even the other propagandists are distancing themselves from it just as fast as they can.
