NYT on Syrian Rebels: What an incredible smell you've discovered!
Rebels in Syria eagerly await the beheading of a Priest in June of this year
File under: information the American public would like to have known before President Obama decided to go to war with Syria:
The moment the poem ended, the commander, known as “the Uncle,” fired a bullet into the back of the first prisoner’s head. His gunmen followed suit, promptly killing all the men at their feet.You'll notice that the NYTimes claims the video was "smuggled" out of Syria only "days ago". Like, this is all new -- you know news -- to them.
This scene, documented in a video smuggled out of Syria a few days ago by a former rebel who grew disgusted by the killings, offers a dark insight into how many rebels have adopted some of the same brutal and ruthless tactics as the regime they are trying to overthrow.
If that's the case, then I'd like to know what rock the staff at the NYTimes has been hiding under for the last two years. It's a happy place. I'm guessing there are ponies and rainbows there too.
For literally dozens of similar videos of rebels murdering people in Syria, just scroll through our Syria archives. Unfortunately there are so many of these same type of snuff videos coming out of Syria that our archives can't store them all, only the ones from the past 6 months or so.
