‘Bought Journalism’: German bestseller reveals CIA pay Western media for spin & bias
Syria was knocked offline in 2012
Editors note: this small article was sent to me by Lady Khamis proving to me once again that the truth eventually will come out, having the Internet which keeps no secret hidden for very long everything comes out if you know where to look. When I was growing up my Historian teachers would say to find the truth about any war you have to wait till the dust settles down and then you will have two sides who will write the event. The winner who will write it the way they want it and the victims aka the losers will write it from their point of view with what they lived or know at the time. So we never got it accurately. It took me years and a lot of research from all parties to understand our World History. Now days the Historians have no excuse the Internet is full of information from all sides, every little thing that the Elite may think its secure it will be leaked into the internet we have to thank the hackers, You tube, Twitter and generally every single one of us who takes the time out of our heavy schedule to find out the Truth. As knowing the TRUTH will set you free.
The media now days are paid in full to manipulate you and distort every single time by the Elite. Starting from the gossip to the political views, they even stage in their sets when they are not winning to show you a different image that they are winning only then comes the internet and makes a mockery of them. We have seen it several times from BBC, CNN, FOX AL ARABIA, ALZAJEERA etc.
From unfiltered news:
When all of Syria was knocked offline in 2012, not long after the dawn of the country’s civil war, both sides pointed their finger at each other. They should have pointed the finger at the U.S. government, according to former National Security Administration contractor Edward J. Snowden, who gave an extensive interview with James Bamford published Wednesday in Wired magazine.
Snowden, who was recently granted a three-year residency by the Russian government, said an elite NSA hacking unit was attempting to install malware on a central Syrian router to monitor the nation’s Internet activity but accidentally rendered it unusable, putting almost all of the Middle Eastern country in the dark.
“If we get caught, we can always point the finger at Israel,” he said someone at the NSA joked.
The intelligence agency, realizing its mistake, sought to put the country back online but was only able to do so to the extent that it could cover its tracks, not bring the Internet back. Instead, the State Department pointed fingers. “We condemn this latest assault on the Syrian people’s ability to express themselves and communicate with each other,” then-State Department spokeswoman Victoria Nuland told a press conference days after the shutdown was reported in November 2012.
Snowden also told Wired that he’d love to return home to the U.S. if the Espionage Act charge (which prevents him from discussing his motivation to leak documents to the Guardian and Washington Post) is dropped.
