A veteran Spanish war correspondent has been kidnapped by insurgents in Syria, his newspaper reported Tuesday.
The reporter, Marc Marginedas, has been missing since Sept. 4, the last day that he contacted the newspaper, El Periodico de Catalunya, which is based in Barcelona.
The newspaper reported that it appears that Marginedas, 46, was kidnapped by jihadi combatants near the city of Hama, in western Syria.
Hello, my name is Marc and I’m a journalist for a fairly large news corporation. I won’t state my last name or the news company I work for, for my own protection. I’m currently writing this from a medium sized town somewhere in Syria. I’m able to have access to the internet right now thanks to a portable router I have. I’ll try and keep this as short as possible while giving as much information as I can. This message NEEDS to get out to the public.
I’m posting this on reddit because I know that you people can get this story out better than any other website. I can’t say for a fact that, that box contained nukes, but there is enough evidence that leads me to believe it does. This has to be known to the public. Somewhere out in the middle of Syria there are rebels with a possible nuke. If the rebels use this/these nukes who knows what the outcome will be. I do know though that the use of a nuclear weapon has the potential to throw the entire world into chaos. Where the box is now, I'm not sure of. It could be in the hands of more rebels or the Syrian government may have gotten it back. Where ever it is though, the public NEEDS to know about this and something is going to have to be done before things hit the fan.
John and Lewis, I’m emailing this to you guys so you can inform my family and friends of what has happened to me. Tell Britney I love her and I’m going to do everything in my power to get home safely.
To everyone reading this, I don’t know what the future holds. This could lead to something worse than anything that has ever happened before. If this message isn’t shared and the nuke(s) goes off, no one will know the truth. This story may be the only way people will know what really happened.
God Bless, Marc
Well they're tied to it either way if the story is true. But there were boxes remove from that compound. Benghazi was a big deal. The whole Syria thing is much more than what it appears to be.

Or the CIA have there dirty hands in this and want a scapegoat when they blow up somebody / something. It is not hard to put something up on the internet. If one goes up it will be impossible to tell who set it off, absolutely impossible.
Or this is just nothing but an attention seeking twit.
/r/nosleep would be a weird place to post it. That would be like me posting something crazy to General Chit Chat.
The Thread, The OP is Very Long
The leader of the unit was a large, hefty man. Battle hardened by all the fighting he had been through and seen. Although he admittedly wasn’t the best leader, his men admired him deeply. I will refer to him as Erol. Halil informed me that Erol had been a bar tender before the war broke out. He was deeply attached to his Islamic faith and inspired many men to fight in the name of Allah. He was said to be high up in the Syrian Rebel’s chain of command. This would lead to me finding myself in the situation that I am now.
Ok my first question is, is do deeply religious Muslims drink? No... So what was this a tourist town? Or was he serving alcohol to Muslims? I am confused on this one fact alone.
In Islam taqiyya تقية (alternative spellings taqiyeh, taqiya, taqiyah, tuqyah) is a form of religious dissimulation, or a legal dispensation whereby a believing individual can deny his faith or commit otherwise illegal or blasphemous acts while they are at risk of significant persecution.
Possible link to Benghazi? There was something in the compound they were there for. I think many of us discussed such a scenario.

As a Muslim you are not supposed to serve it to others, have it at or in your house, or drink it.
The taboo on alcohol is total. No religious Muslim would have anything to do with working in a club, even if they weren't serving it, because they are around others who are, the forbidden gathering if you will, is not allowed.
That said, not all people who are Muslim are religious... its kind of like the christian who calls himself a christian but is anything but, there are Muslims just the same, and through their actions you can tell whether or not they are religious...
So, serving alcohol in a bar of some kind, or even working in one, means he is not religious. Period. This makes him culturally "Muslim" according to western people, but not a person of faith even a little according to the religion.
