Reuters Goran Tomasevic was the alleged photographer. Checking with the new agency for verification and learning why "the key photo" is "missing from the gallery" was omitted from Times coverage.
"I believe the photos were falsified," said Rubin. It wouldn't be the first time fake images were used. It's common scoundrel media practice. Western media, Al Jazeera, and other unreliable sources prioritize it. Willful deception is policy.
"I am not an expert on photography, but I believe these are false (photos), indeed ridiculously so."
"I believe an intelligent editor should have had serious questions about this, especially after there has been so much controversy about falsified photos."
Featuring them is official scoundrel media policy. Lies substitute for truth.
On January 20, a Times editorial headlined "The Syrian Refugee Crisis." Opening comments distorted truth enough to make a sailor blush, saying:
"More than 60,000 innocent civilians have been slaughtered in President Bashar al-Assad's desperate bid to retain power in Syria."
"In the two-year reign of terror, he has also forced staggering numbers of Syrians to relocate within the country or flee across the border, creating a disaster that is threatening to destabilize the region."
"The international community has an obligation to do more to ease the suffering."
Syria is Washington's war. It was planned years ago. America wants Assad ousted. It pro-Western puppet leadership replacing him.
There's nothing civil about Syria's war. Western-recruited death squads invaded. They're Washington proxies. They're heavily armed, funded, and directed.
Current US proxy wars use earlier tactics. Syria's been ruthlessly ravaged. An entire population is terrorized. A sovereign nation is being destroyed.
