CNN and the corporate media are trying their darnedest to put the best face on Obama’s illegal attack against the people of Libya under the auspices of the United Nations and its bankster overlords.
Confronted with grisly images broadcast on Libyan state television of dead civilians wantonly slaughtered by the Coalition of Globalists after a fifth night of bombing raids, CNN said it could not “independently verify the circumstances of the deaths or who the victims were… Coalition leaders have reported no civilian casualties so far and said that Western jets have dropped precision bombs on military targets.”
The CNN article then moves on to portray the brutality of the official enemy, Gaddafi, and that of his military forces fighting in Misrata and Ajdabiya.
In order to dispute the bombardment killings, CNN sent its lead actor, Nic Robertson, out to find the victims. Led by incompetent Libyan government bureaucrats, Robertson and his team were unable to find bodies to video tape, thus leading television viewers to come away with the impression Gaddafi and his besieged government are making it all up and underscore the assertion that Coalition “precision” bombs do not kill civilians.
It is the same line used during the illegal invasion of Iraq when the corporate media launched a Pentagon coordinated military psychological operation against the American people.
During Bush Junior’s invasion, the BBC remarked that it was relentlessly pummeled with lies and deception by the government. “We’re absolutely sick and tired of putting things out and finding out they’re not true. The misinformation in this war is far and away worse than any conflict I’ve covered, including the first Gulf War and Kosovo,” said one senior BBC executive.
The French have also pushed the propaganda line that supposed humanitarian military interventions launched by globalists and one-worlders do not kill civilians.
French Foreign Minister Alain Juppé declared that airstrikes against Libya have been a “success” and denied civilians had been killed. Juppé said the strikes will continue as long as necessary, that is until Gadaffi is dead and Libya is reduced to a smoking ruin like other Muslims countries that have had the misfortune of experiencing Pentagon-imposed democracy firsthand.
Juppé appeared to be responding to the attack on a military base Thursday in a residential area near the capital. Libya’s state news agency said the raids had killed “a large number” of civilians.
It is unknown if CNN was able to locate the dead.
