More fake news from the purveyors of fake news.
Unknown to most people, the White Helmets brand was conceived and directed by a marketing company named “The Syria Campaign,” based in New York. They have managed to fool millions of people. Walt Disney might have made a great movie about this: unarmed volunteers fearlessly rescuing survivors in the midst of war without regard to religion or politics. Like most other “true life” Disney movies, it is 10% reality, 90% fiction.
It’s not just CBS: CNN and many other establishment media platforms have long promoted the US/European funded “Syrian Civil Defence,” also known as the “White Helmets.”
CBS promotes al Qaeda in Syria after destruction of Aleppo.
CBS News: White Helmets give hope to Syrians seeking refuge from bombardment
December 15, 2016, (thanks to Larry):
Hundreds of civilians have escaped Aleppo in a deal that gives the Assad dictatorship control of the city decimated by Syrian and Russian bombs. Those air strikes have intensified in recent days. As Scott Pelley reports for Sunday’s “60 Minutes,” a group of volunteer rescue workers called the White Helmets are the hope the Syrian people need.
CBS has complained about the danger of fake news, and even implicated Gen. Flynn in the hysteria. So, to see CBS promoting the White Helmets is simply grotesque.
The White Helmets are al Qaeda in Syria. The White Helmets only operate in “rebel” controlled areas. The White Helmets carry guns, and help transport prisoners of war. The White Helmets throw the dead bodies of Syrian soldiers in the trash.
None of this is being reported by CBS.
This time the White Helmets will be on 60 Minutes, at one time the gold standard for investigative TV journalism, but, not so much, anymore.
This level of prevarication in the news regarding al Qaeda propaganda brings to mind Obama’s Syria speech.
If you will remember, Obama called the nation to come to the aid of al Qaeda on the eve of 911, after the fake news story about Assad using nerve gas. The air support that Obama was proposing then (before Putin intervened) is what the White Helmets are calling for now, and is what the “rebels” will benefit from.
This is beyond fake news. This is giving a platform to al Qaeda propaganda in the guise of a humanitarian organization. It is sad to see CBS sink so low.
