Sunday evening and Monday morning ABC News aired this video of what they said was the slaughter of the Kurds in Syria:
The Washington Examiner smelled something besides smoke in this. They questioned its veracity. Turns out they were correct. ABC News had to admit that it was video of a nighttime machine gun demonstration at the Knob Creek Gun Range in West Point, Kentucky, not an attack in Syria.
Now somebody at ABC knew that this was a fake.
They ran it anyhow.
We’ve gotten used to fake news reports in the media. Fake information, fake commentary, fake polls. Now they are taking the next step of faking video. It was logical that they would jump from fake words to fake video.
Logical and scary. Is there any doubt that the same media/deep state that twists words, suggests meanings or edits video to craft a message will take the next step and actually manipulate the video?
There is a six part BBC show that aired recently called The Capture. It’s perhaps one of the best shows about this topic that has been on TV or the movies.
The title refers to the capture of an act seen on surveillance camera. British cities are thick with cameras. The story opens with a soldier on trial for supposedly killing an Afghan without giving him a chance to surrender. It’s recorded on tape and looks undeniable. However, his lawyers show how the tape could be out of sync and not been an accurate portrayal of what happened. The soldier is acquitted.
After celebrating the victory at a pub, he follows his attractive barrister to offer to drive her home. They kiss, she declines and gets on a bus and he walks away.
But the video doesn’t show that. It shows him assaulting her. The police search for her and eventually find her body.
The detective involved follows the story to find that the tape has, indeed, been manipulated. How it plays out involves the CIA, British intelligence and radical groups. Intelligence analysts call such manipulation “a correction.” That gives you an idea of the evil and betrayal these groups engage in.
That so many entities would embrace faking a video is shocking, but not surprising. If ABC News can do this so flagrantly, how many other times have we watched fake videos and believed them?
The positioning of cameras around cities may seem to be a good thing against crime, but is it? Is it the police in China who benefit or the Deep State governmental officials. Just ask Hong Kong.
We are even thinking about surveillance cameras in Central Gardens. While they may seem innocent on the surface, could they ultimately be used against us?
Something to contemplate.
Citizens may feel they are innocent, but the potential for governmental abuse is huge.
If you get a chance, try and find “The Capture.” You won’t feel you’ve wasted your viewing time.
