Anderson Cooper and CNN have been caught staging fake news about Syria to justify military intervention. As Daffy Duck would say "Your Despicable"

I just posted the video exposing "Syria Danny" on the CNN facebook page, along with the video of "freedom-loving, peaceful rebels" executing boys for supporting Assad and other "rebel" supporters executing truck drivers for simply driving trucks to Syria.

CNN does not care about Americans, only about spewing propaganda to disarm Americans about what is really going on in Syria: Al-Qaeda and the Muslim Brotherhood (Sunni groups) fighting to overthrow Assad's secular Shi'a regime.

Syria Danny should be nominated for an Oscar.
Thanks Tommy.

It is well known and documented that Pallywood actors and models stage disasters. The same dead bodies turn up, funerals where the dead rise, widows stand with their children outside half a dozen houses and complain that they have nowhere to go and other people's genuine suffering used to pretend that it happened elsewhere.

Each time the world is indignant and each time they forget and fall for it again.

This is a great find, Tommy. Thanks for posting.

Shame on CNN -- Collaborator's Network News -- collaborating and spokes piece, drama production crew for the Obama administration and apparently Bush's as well.

Someone ought to do a thorough investigation of CNN, as it may actually just be a part of the U.S.'s black budget.

Anyway, I think it's quite clear with accumulating evidence that we have NO business whatsoever invading Syria, that this is just another of a long itemized wish list of this administration. Obama is supporting the Muslim Brotherhood and by extension, either knowingly or unknowingly, Al Qaeda. More proof that the man in charge of this country is a Manchurian Candidate, with Arab oil money to do his bidding.

Who would have thought it? CNN? Haven't watched it for years, don't trust it and never did.

Add this to the 22 employees who walked out on Al Jazeera because they faked news too. This is criminal and should be prosecuted, but won't be because they are 'reporting' what they are supposed to for the Corporatocracy who owns and runs everything.

Sickening. No wonder people are so ignorant of the real world and follow lock-step in line with what they are told to do. Dangerous

The most trustworthy news source I know of is EuroNews. They don't seem to take anyone's side in anything, but even there I take it with a grain of salt.

Thanks for exposing this. Wonder why Care2 didn't cover this on their main Causes page?

Doesn't surprise me. I believe less than 90% of what I hear on mainstream news. I read recently that it was U.S. contractors that set off the chemical bombs. I've never fully believed that Bashar Al-Assad is as guilty as the media is trying to portray him.

I saw this on Facebook, it's a shame to see people I once thought had some integrity, losing their integrity.
Thanks Tommy.

Something is very strange here:

The video is much older than the current push for intervention. The "Syria Danny" stuff goes back to early 2012, at the latest, and the "red line" narrative trying to give Obama as much leeway to act as possible is recent. In fact, at the time, Obama had no desire to send in forces in early 2012. The push at the time was from the U.N., to get Valerie Amos access to the country. (Note the upload date) (again, note the date)

The CNN video may have been faked, but it would have been to support U.N.-backed humanitarian aid, not military intervention. Showing the Middle East falling apart under Obama so soon after the intervention in Libya just doesn't seem to mesh with CNN's politics, though I suppose it could have been staged (or staged work provided by an activist may have been accepted without sufficient questioning) for the sake of sensationalism, but I'm a little skeptical that CNN would bother with that when there are so many real stories of trouble in Syria. You don't get over a million refugees (2,000,000 now) without being able to easily find real horror-stories.

The situation in Syria is complex and veeeery hot regarding to neighboring countrys AND their Allied. Starting a US lead war, even a tiny small one will be as throwing a match on gasoline. I really can`t think of a similar situation exept the cuba crisis, and this i think is even worse. I really hope the american People can see what is going on and that they take actions against this, who can be the biggest nightmare of all for all!

Great, we have another false narrative.

One day, the average, down-to-earth U.S. citizen will become one of the injured or a fatality to one of our government’s false narratives.

The younger generations, which are more resilient, will have to crawl out of the clay and dung all by themselves.

Who would have thought Cooper would become the Gerraldo Rivera of news sensationalism? I don't watch CNN, for several reasons. A few have just been realized.
