Idiots Question Authenticity if ISIS Atrocity Photos
Because either they are engaged in disinformation to confuse the west into further paralysis. Or they are just plain stupid.
One of the photo captions claims to show the "purification of hundreds of members of the Safavid army as they flee fighting in civilian clothing" by militants from the Islamic State in Iraq and the Levant (ISIS), an al-Qaeda breakaway. Safavid is a derogatory term used by Sunni extremists to describe Iraq's Shia majority, linking it to the former Persian empire.Some of those pictures the press won't show you below the fold. And yes they are graphic, ISIS is nothing if not authentic butchers.
Some of the photos show dozens of unarmed men, perhaps as many as 100, being transported on pick-up trucks by masked gunmen.
The captives are also seen lying down in trenches, surrounded by gunmen holding the black flags used by jihadist groups, including ISIS.
Some images show small clouds of dust kick up as a row of gunmen seemingly open fire on the men.
Update: How ISIS uses twitter by J.M. Berger.
