sry but infos are all in german but the video speaks for itself - just one important side-note: this news channel is one of the official ones under gov regulations, not private...

They will just fail.

Journalism at it s best :-( sad zdf has normally better standards. At least he admits that he is not very sure where the material comes from, or when it was shot. But that s the jon of the the redactors to confirm...

" auf dem zweiten sieht man besser"


(the slogan of zdf)

So this video is of the Syrians and not from Iraq? Can anyone give a rough translation?
Fake videos to promote wars? Get out!

And just found the 'oops sorry'


bundes.blog.de... liche-folterbilder-syrien-dementi-zdf-bilder-stammten-irak-11179767/

In short sort of, its difficult to find sources, we apologize and should have checked better.

Tards. He's saying that they (ZDF) can't control and find out where the video orginated from. So they CERTAINLY do NOT claim that it was from Syria.

"bilder die dieses bestätigen [...] sie wurden unserem reporter zugespielt" "die ganz offensichtlich von dem militär selbst gemacht worden sind"....btw man könnte es auch an den uniformen erkennen....und wenn eine quelle nicht gesichert ist benutzt man sie nicht! versuch das doch nicht zu rechtfertigen das die da hetze betreiben - hier ist ja mit keinem wort gesagt das ähnliche szenen sich so nicht zutragen geschweige denn das assad irgendwie zu unterstützen ist...fakt bleibt aber das das video & der beitrag fake und meinungsmache sind...

( i keep it in english for the international audience)

Yes, they came forward after it was detected by other sources. It's kind of sad that they (ZDF) did such a lousy job, since in earlier days the media was the 4th power, an important part in the checks and balances system.

But on the other hand it's great to have citizens and alternative news outlets who take on the role of checks and balances. As you and me and ATS alltogether are doing it.
