Det verkar som att Thierry Meyssan har ganska sensationella uppgifter att komma med angående de dödade och skadade ”journalisterna” i Homs! – The journalist-combatants of Baba Amr
Is the crackdown on Baba Amr the biggest political masquerade since 9/11? This is what Thierry Meyssan sets out to prove in a exclusive serialized account published by Voltaire Network. In this first installment, he focuses on the alleged escape of Western journalists and demonstrates that some of them were embedded with the Free ”Syrian” Army.
There is no doubt in my mind that the survivors of Baba Amr will shape their version of events to strengthen the Atlanticist propaganda. They will continue to lie as they have lied all along. That is why, I am eager to put on record what I have seen in an effort to forestall the fabric of disinformation that is relentlessly being woven.
At this stage of my video-based analysis, I have formulated several working hypotheses.
– The team from the Sunday Times (Mary Colvin and Paul Conroy) was working for MI6, while Le Figaro Magazine correspondent (Edith Bouvier) was sent by the DGSE.
– ”Doctor Mohammed” seized the opportunity that the journalists were bedridden to record two more videos, but Paul Conroy, in turn, used it send a distress message to his allies.
– Ultimately, the France24 freelance, Khaled Abou Saleh, created the scenario for Alain Juppe’s objective.
Throughout the negotiations, I was able to provide various insights that were taken into consideration. But whenever I broached the above aspects, I was told that it was not the right time. It was clear that the Free ”Syrian” Army was refusing to release the journalists. The priority was therefore to save them. Their actual status would be dealt with later.
On Saturday evening, 25 February, the negotiations folded. To restore contact with the Takfirists, the Syrians sought a moderate sheikh with whom the group would agree to talk, but all the clergymen who were approached stepped back one after the other for fear of the consequences. Should we continue to camp on site waiting for discussions to resume as soon as a sheikh could be found? Or was it better to return to Damascus to rest in safety?
The answer came from the Syrian military authorities. We were asked to return and to remain on stand-by for a new opportunity to emerge. Back in the capital, an SMS informed us that negotiations had been suspended for 48 hours.
Suspended did not imply that we could enjoy ourselves on Sunday and Monday while our fellow countrymen were in danger of death, but that during those 48 hours another negotiation was underway. At that moment, I thought that our Russian friends had taken the relay.
On Tuesday morning I was awakened by a friend, a war reporter for a major French media outlet, who called to inform me of the arrival of Paul Conroy and, probably, other journalists in Beirut. I was shocked. In turn, I woke up a senior Syrian official, who shared my perplexity. From phone call to call, nobody in Damascus knew anything, or would not speak.
Ultimately, I discovered that an agreement had been worked out between General Assef Shawkat and a highly placed French personality, whom he knew as a friend, to find a political solution to the imbroglio. Loyalist forces opened their lines to allow the French military advisers and journalists to cross into Lebanon overnight. At daybreak, the Free ”Syrian” Army discovered they were gone. Realizing that they had been left on their own, the mercenaries decided to give themselves up, leaving their arsenal behind, while the Islamists refused the heed the final warnings. General Assef Shawkat gave the final assault and took the Emirate within hours, delivering the trapped civilians from the tyranny of the Islamists.
From its headquarters abroad, the Free ”Syrian” Army – now reduced to a shadow of itself – announced its ”strategic withdrawal.” Since nature abhors a vacuum, the Syrian National Council, also based abroad, has meanwhile announced the creation of a Military Committee composed of Syrian and, especially, foreign experts. In four days, the military question has moved from the Syrian battlefield to posh lounges of the great Parisian hotels.

“As the end of 2006 approaches” wrote Roebuck, “Bashar appears … stronger than he has done in two years. The country is economically stable …regional issues seem to be going Syria’s way.” However: “vulnerabilities and looming issues may provide opportunities to up the pressure on Bashar … some of these vulnerabilities “(including the complexities with Lebanon)”… ”can be exploited to put pressure on the regime. Actions that cause Bashar to lose balance, and increase his insecurity, are in our interest.” The President’s: “ mistakes are hard to predict and benefits may vary, if we are prepared to move quickly and take advantage of opportunities …”
Enligt Press TV – ‘Rebels killed Western journalists in Syria, not Assad army’ – har man funnit ett spik i huvudet på journalisten Marie Colvinsom dödades i Homs för ett par veckor sen. Detta skulle tyda på att hon dödades av rebellernas vapen.
According to a source working for the office of the medical examiner in Syria, a nail was found in the skull of US journalist Marie Colvin, which proves she was killed by a handmade bomb.
The source added that Syrian doctors have not removed the nail from Colvin’s head so that US coroners can also find the real cause of her death.
