Former British ambassador to Uzbekistan, human rights activist and author Craig Murray came up with “irrefutable evidence” of news fabrication on Syrian chemical warfare by the British Broadcasting Corporation (BBC).
Murray, on his official website, compared two different BBC news packages on chemical weapons in Syria.
In a report (video above) released on August 29, a medic examining the aftermath of a school bombing can be heard saying, “It’s just absolute chaos and carnage here, erm we’ve had a massive influx of what looks like serious burns, er seems like it must be some sort of, I’m not really sure, maybe napalm, something similar to that...”
In another report, published on September 30, the exact same footage is run with a ‘slightly’ altered script, “It’s just absolute chaos and carnage here, erm we’ve had a massive influx of what looks like serious burns, er seems like it must be some sort of chemical weapon, I’m not really sure...”
According to Murray, it is very hard to judge as to what the woman is saying since her mouth and lips are fully covered throughout.
“Terrible things are happening all the time in Syria’s civil war, between Assad’s disparate forces and still more disparate opposition forces, and innocent people are suffering. There are dreadful crimes against civilians on all sides. I have no desire at all to downplay or mitigate that. But once you realize the indisputable fact of the fake interview the BBC has put out, some of the images in this video begin to be less than convincing on close inspection too,” Murray concluded.
It’s quite disturbing that a news organization like BBC, which is generally considered to be more reliable than Fox News or CNN, is engaging in news propaganda.
And people are furious:
