Syrian News Censorship?
We've seen the mainstream media pretty much parroting the White House through this entire Syria thing, but this might be really over the top. Well, maybe it's something or maybe just a glitch. Check it out:
There was a headline on Yahoo/ABC News yesterday. Something about a U.N. Envoy's report on what he or they found at the location of the chemical weapons attack in Syria. You click on the link and there's the title and two sentences, then it's blank. The rest of the story is missing. It's been that way since yesterday.
"U.N. weapons inspectors have reached the scene of the alleged poison gas attack. Here's what they have to say."
That's it. That was yesterday afternoon and I haven't seen any update on this supposed story. Hmmm???
One gal commented to the story:
" They are afraid to print it tell the EU/US MSM is done with their mind control series on how Assad did it( remember the Kuwait incubator babies and Iraq WMD). It is on Free Trading News:Testimony from victims now strongly suggests it was the rebels, not the Syrian government, that used Sarin Nerve Gas during a recent incident in the revolution-wracked nation, a senior UN diplomat said Monday.
Carla del Ponte, a member of the UN Independent International Commission of Inquiry on Syria, told Swiss TV there were “strong, concrete suspicions but not yet incontrovertible proof,” that rebels seeking to oust Syrian President Bashar al-Assad had used the nerve agent.
But she said her panel had not yet seen any evidence of Syrian government forces using chemical weapons (CW), according to the BBC, she added that more investigation was needed."
I haven't checked further on her version of the story. We'll see what shows up. Wonder if someone at ABC spiked this story at the request, or under order, of the U.S. government?
Or, it could be some sort of cyber thing going on. There's news reports going around of some Syrian related group hacking news sites. My money is on a cover up, of course. But, if it is an attempt at a coverup, why did they leave the headline up?
Addendum: Ok. I did just try and see if I could find the Free Trading News the gal mentions. First results came back empty.
Update: Reuters reports the U.N. team will be leaving Syria Saturday and then reporting to the U.N. General Assembly. No mention of any preliminary findings. Interesting that it mentions the U.N. Secretary- General has been speaking with Obama on ways to "expedite the investigation". Inquiring minds want to know just what that means. Nothing to see here, folks?
