UPDATE 2: Also… please read The “Human Slaughterhouse” Propaganda Campaign: “Articulating Notions of Public Truth”
UPDATE: Check out al Jazeera story which features one of the sources of Nicolette’s report. He is a Free Syrian Army terrorist who did two years in the prison AND WAS RELEASED. Wait a minute… I thought they were exterminating everyone? What gives? (check out video at 1:10 mark)
I wonder who’s kids they grabbed for this PR shoot.
Everyone from CNN to al Jazeera covered the Amnesty International report of the 13,000 prisoners hanged by the Assad government during President Obama’s “moderate” terrorist regime change operation in Syria yesterday. They titled the report “Human Slaughterhouse” so the concentration-challenged American public wouldn’t have to read much further than the title to get their water-cooler talking points for the day at the office. Fox covered it. The Guardian covered it. ABC, USA Today, Telegraph, BBC, Red State, Breitbart, Business Insider you get the picture, right?
All day yesterday, Amnesty International was trending on Twitter. Thousands of people left comments reflecting their outrage at Assad “the monster” and various news organizations published the baseless comments as news. It was a megaphone project that worked perfectly… for a little while.
You’ll notice the story has been relegated to the back pages today and some publications have actually pulled their articles on it. There’s a reason for that. The AI report is complete and total bunk. It’s baseless, technically flawed and as they accurately reported over at Moon of Alabama, it wouldn’t stand up in even the most rigged kangaroo court on the planet.
Do you want to know many of those 13,000 victims of “torture, hanging and extermination” that AI has actual evidence of?
It’s not 13,000 which is the high range of their “estimate” which everyone is touting on various regime change backing “news” outlets.
It’s not 5,000 which is the low range of that “estimate”
It’s not 375 that were provided by the western-backed, regime hating, openly lying Syrian Network for Human Rights.
It’s not even the “additional” 36 names that were provided to AI by “witnesses”
It is total,complete, absolute fake news and there is no other possible way to look at it.
