This might be dangerous information, and I would simply like to caution people regarding it, spreading it.

This would certainly explain why "Jihadi John" had a British accent.

What else do you call a video that is deemed a beheading video, because
it supposedly shows a beheading, but doesn't? And furthermore would barely
pull a PG rating in the movie industry? Yet draws snarls of resentment and
hateful attacks on people who try to point that out by posting it. By others
whirling comments like sick pos, nut job, psycho or whatever the case. And
then those attacking people quickly shut down their PC, because it's time to
watch this.

I think that's definitely " A fake beheading video".

WTF else do you call it?

It appears to be true, but there's a question mark on just how much has actually been spent.

Propaganda in a war zone has been used for decades, I'm sure we all remember the flyers dropped on Germany by allied forces, it's the same thing but with a 21st century twist on it, like the CD's that were placed so insurgents and terrorists could find them, to track them. Quite clever I thought.

The Pentagon paid a UK PR firm half a billion dollars to create fake terrorist videos in Iraq in a secret propaganda campaign

PR firm Bell Pottinger, known for its array of controversial clients including the Saudi government and Chilean dictator Augusto Pinochet’s foundation, worked with the US military to create the propaganda in a secretive operation.

The firm reported to the CIA, the National Security Council and the Pentagon on the project

The Bell Pottinger operation started soon after the US invasion of Iraq... ...before moving on to more lucrative psychological and information operations.

Former employee Martin Wells told the Bureau how he found himself working in Iraq after being hired as a video editor by Bell Pottinger. Within 48 hours, he was landing in Baghdad to edit content for secret “psychological operations”

The firm created... ...content to look as though it had come from “Arabic TV”.

The firm also created fake Al-Qaeda propaganda videos, which were then planted by the military in homes they raided.

US law prohibits the government from using propaganda on its population, hence the use of an outside firm to create the content.


Remember when all those terrorist beheading videos were surfacing, and a bunch of people were saying they're probably fake? Remember when people claimed the idea of the government or the military making fake terrorist videos was crazy tinfoil-hat-wearing nonsense?
Well, now it's out there for the public to see. Not specifically the aforementioned ISIS beheading videos, but the fact that the government and military were creating fake terrorism videos as part of various psychological operations.
***They did it***
This wouldn't surprise me.

Coming from RT news, not sure where to begin reading that this is honest media coverage. However it would be an obvious that America just like any other country uses its media to make its public jump on the bandwagon for whatever its countries leaders want to occur globally.

Sad fact is, whoever we are, whatever country we live in. We are all fed lies about the other half. Hence why we always fight for no reason.

As long as the 1% are running things, the rest of us get the lies.
