Yesterday news outlets carried a story pertaining to yet another professionally filmed, edited, and scored ISIS execution tape.
The video, released on the internet, runs 22-minutes long and features the apparent burning death of 26-year-old Jordanian pilot Moaz al-Kassasbeh inside a cage.
In response, Jordanian authorities executed Sajida al-Rishawi, a man previously convicted of attempting a suicide bombing in Jordan, and Ziad al-Karbouli, a top lieutenant of Al Qaeda Iraq.
According to al Jazeera, in a strange coincidence — or maybe not so much — “Jordan’s King Abdullah…was in Washington DC to meet top US officials” when the video surfaced on the global circuit.
This brings us to an important question…
Is the Video a Fake?
The video looks to be a killing. For debunkers this will be a tough one to call a fake in comparison to the James Foley tape or the Stephen Sotloff tape, both of which were proven frauds as quick as they came out for many inconsistencies.
But let’s not forget this latest ISIS film, as convincing as it looks, is only one in now a long line of propaganda films all but proven to be the opposite of what they seem. Simply put, no matter how real the videos from here on out look, they’re still coming from the same production company that clearly faked several videos before now.
That being said, in regards to this latest video, the fact that there is audio of people screaming dubbed over the execution rather than the man being executed’s voice is somewhat suspect. So are the multiple camera angles, picture cuts and fades, color correction, pyrotechnics, and sound mixing. This video would have taken days to edit to its final cut, so its hard to believe it was put together by a few terrorists so quickly.
While the video is convincing, professionals could create a fake burning with little expertise, like in this video of a movie filming where a man is lit on fire. It looks like he should be dead, but he he’s fine.
We can’t ignore that western media is showing this video in its entirety this time; or the fact this video is being pushed by every media source in the west harder than The Interview was. We also must recognize world leaders from all of America’s allied countries have condemned the video and sworn to step up their fight against ISIS because of it. It is clear that authorities want this propaganda film to be known about and seen by as many people as possible in the west, which begs the question: why is the west acting as a public relations firm for a terrorist network in Iraq and Syria?
A Washington Post article released back in 2010 may fill in a few blanks. It was titled: CIA Unit’s Wacky Idea: Depict Saddam as Gay. Within it, reporter Jeff Stein outlines the CIA’s plans in 2003 to create fake propaganda videos with Arab actors in them to show worldwide on the news in order to form public opinion.
“One was to create a video purporting to show the Iraqi dictator [Hussein] having sex with a teenage boy, according to two former CIA officials familiar with the project.” —Washington Post.
This is disgusting for a number of reasons.
First and foremost, whether the man in the video was Saddam or not — which it wouldn’t have been, it would have been an actor — we can see that the CIA was willing to film gay childporn in order to direct public outrage — that’s beyond horrifying! It makes it very easy to accept the fact that people who would film that would have no problem lighting a man on fire and filming it, either. Especially when we consider that the CIA was just under fire over the abhorrent methods of torture they were inflicting on Arabs in their prisons, which included feeding prisoners through their assholes, starving them, sleep depriving them, making them eat their own shit and piss, and in one circumstance, killing a man. The CIA will do anything to anybody. This is crystal clear. Though, again, the film’s killing could have been easily faked.
Additionally, we can clearly see that America’s intelligence community planned on using fake videos to release on the news in the past. It’s undoubtedly something they do, so the idea of the ISIS videos actually being made by the CIA to direct public support for the massacre happening in the Middle East isn’t that far fetched. In fact, it makes more sense than ISIS having a team of professional film editors spending hours on editing videos with no other platform than Twitter to release them on.
“The agency actually did make a video purporting to show Osama bin Laden and his cronies sitting around a campfire swigging bottles of liquor and savoring their conquests with boys, one of the former CIA officers recalled, chuckling at the memory. The actors were drawn from ‘some of us darker-skinned employees,’ he said.” —Washington Post.
Was a man burned on screen? He could very well have been. But if America and its cronies blame Islamic fanatics from a country they’re currently bombing for making the video, who really benefits; ISIS or the military industrial complex? Who is making money from the ratings of the video and the stories around it; ISIS or western media moguls?
ISIS: An American funded Monster
It gets even deeper than that, though. Researchers into this Middle Eastern charade know full well ISIS is merely a creation of US intelligence in the first place. Just like al Qaeda and al Nursa Front, the US created the group to fight against regimes they had in their crosshairs, and now they use them as boogeymen to scare westerners into supporting the loss of their rights at home in the name of “national security” and sending their own troops to those war torn countries. There are numerous crumbs to locate that trail.
In an interview in July of last year, former al Qaeda commander Nabil Na’eem revealed that the founder of ISIS, Abu Bakr Baghdadi, was “basically a US agent”:
“It is known that the USA released him from prison and he spent 20 to 30 million US Dollars to establish these ISIS groups and the first ISIS camps were established in Jordan…these camps were supervised by the Marines, and the arming of ISIS is all American… I was in charge of a camp of 120 men, we were spending thousands of thousands…[on] food, drinks, weapons, munition[s], training.” —Nabil Na’eem, Syria News, July 3rd, 2014.
This is as close of a source as you can get on the subject, and according to Nabil, when ISIS or al Qaeda fighters are wounded they don’t go to Iraq or Syria hospitals, they go straight to Israel — America’s master in Middle Eastern affairs. In other words, Nabil claims the rebels in the Middle East are made, funded, and directed through a joint American/Israeli effort. This claim has been shown to be absolutely true as stockpiles of rebel weapons in Syria and Iraq have been uncovered to show they are Israeli made.
More recently another account from an ISIS recruiter tells the same story. Yousaf al Salafi — an ISIS commander from Pakistan now in prison — revealed to media sources just last week that he was receiving US funding to recruit young people to fight with the rebels in Syria.
The list goes on, and the evidence shows conclusively that ISIS is American made, American paid, and American trained, which brings us back to the Hollywood production propaganda videos. If a guy was really lit on fire or not isn’t the issue. Whatever happens in these videos, and there will be more, we can be all but sure they are made by Americans and intended for Americans — real kills or not.
