Remember: I, edi, did not write

to do with it, whatever the story.

Tall Tales in Tremseh

For what seems likemonths we have been inundatedwith reports of “massacres” carried out by Syriangovernment troops against defenseless villagers. The sourcing forthese reports is always Syrian “activists,” sometimesnamed but often not, and the details are always quite horrific:There was the “massacre” atHoula, touted by the BBC in a story that included aphoto of a boy jumping over the shrouded bodies ofthe victims. The report claimed Syrian forces had murdered childrenand women in a house to house rampage in the village of Houla: itwas all very dramatic. There was just one problem with the story: itwasn’t true. The photo used by the BBC to illustrate this talltale was takenin Iraq, not Syria, and it had been pilfered by theSyrian “activists” who palmed it off to the BBC as“evidence” of atrocities committed by the regime.

Putin's a killer. This was the claim made by Fox News journalist; Bill O'Reilly during his recent interview with Donald Trump. Trump's reply came in the form of a simple question. What, you think our country's so innocent?

It wasn't an easy dupe. The guy and his  girlfriend spent years on a forum I attend daily.  He mislead folks for years. That sort of thing takes time to build up.

They had CIA training and agency services at their disposal. The only reason the media got to know about it was that people were going to risk their lives trying to rescue this fictitious female.

NO, the guy was an American at university in the UK. You can find stories related to him and his girlfriend. They were sociology students or some such earning a masters, with easy access to vast amounts of time and resources. A yahoo list-serve ended up being deleted over the entire thing. Imagine someone pretending to be someone else for years, and then something happens in Syria, and his story has a ring of truth to it.

You are absolutely right regarding this guy and his partner. They were late forties "studying" something or other...........

Have you seen a document like a passport or resume listing under occupation "SECRET AGENT"? Of course they were students........{:soso_e133:}{:soso_e113:}
