James Foley was murdered a year ago?

http://en.ria.ru/world/20140826/1923484 ... Assad.html

According to Syrian President Bashar Assad’s official spokesperson:

“James Foley was first arrested by the Free Syrian Army and he was sold to ISIS [an earlier name for the IS]. You can check with the UN…James Foley was killed a year ago, not now, they only released the pictures now, but he was killed a year ago. We have definite information, the UN has the information,” Shaaban said as cited by The Daily Mail.


No idea if a word of that is true.

I'm starting to look into the history of Foley. A freelance journalist, he and his team first hung out in Libya with dangerous rebels. Then they decided to hang out with dangerous rebels in Syria. He lived with these people, supposedly being captured by them in the end.

Since the role of war journalist is a popular cover for intelligence operatives, and since his 'beheading video' is highly suspicious, some have wondered if Foley was indeed an intel operative of some kind. It's doubtful that any old journalist could befriend and live with dangerous war-bands in Libya and Syria.

Is Steve Sotloff fake too?

No idea. There were beheadings before the Foley thing, and there will be ones after. You should look into the Sotloff thing.

All I can tell you is that more people are looking at Foley. The most glaring aspect uncovered so far is that he was funded by USAID, which is now well-known as a US intelligence front. The beheading video seems fake to me.

The video of Sotloff's beheading is pretty much identical to the video of Foley's, right down to the same setting and apparently the same guy doing the deed. They're not unrelated.

Okay, I watched it. Darth is right. It's pretty much the same.

Jason and I weighed in on the Foley video. I'm proud of Jason for also voicing skepticism about a good portion of the political news in general. It's getting really hard to trust the gov't and the media. I never wanted to study how there was fake news. I wanted to study real news, but I kept running into fake, staged BS. It's everywhere now. Like many other people just wanting to know wtf is going on, I had to weed out what didn't seem real. To get at truth, I've become addicted to sleuthing out lies! Ha. At least it's sometimes mentally challenging, like solving a puzzle.

What do you guys think about this Sotloff video?

Once again, Professor Tracey finds very interesting information. And you gotta love a guy named Mr. Barfi, right?

Al Jazeera News suspected the Foley and Sotloff videos were fake, then retracted their article

http://english.alarabiya.net/en/media/d ... show-.html

http://www.prisonplanet.com/aljazeera-q ... ideos.html

Al Jazeera's criticism of the videos only appeared in Arabic, not English (which is odd because both are usually offered). The article was promptly removed.

What's interesting is that Al Jazeera is owned by mega-rich Qataris, while Alarabiya (the news outfit that called them out) is owned by mega-rich Saudis. Both are rumoured to collaborate with Western interests when it comes to certain propaganda subjects.

The latter, Alarabiya, does not answer or directly counter the suspicions. Instead, the Alarabiya article cites another journalist who asks: Why would they stage the video? Can it be proven beyond a shadow of a doubt?

One of my responses goes like this: if there is no proof at all of a beheading and it in fact really looks fake, then why are we to automatically assume it happened? The chore of proving it really happened lies in the lap of those spreading the story. Otherwise, it's an urban legend, falsely self-sustained by word of mouth.
