Disinformation studies: CNN & PsyOps in their coverage of Syria rebellion

The Military, Monopolized Media and the business of War [link]

2013-08-18 "Footage of Crisis Actors Surface from Egypt and Syria Riots; Some interesting video footage has surfaced from the Middle East, showing riot scenarios that are literally being staged like a movie set"
from "" []:
There is no telling what is actually taking place in some areas of the Middle East like Egypt and Syria.  Even people living within these areas are finding it difficult to understand what is taking place because there is such an elaborate disinformation campaign going on.  Not only is the media stirring things up and creating a more hostile environment, but there has also been many indications that many aspects of these events are being staged.
Now that is not to say  that there is not legitimate persecution and uprising in these areas, because there is.  However, proof is emerging that staged propaganda events are being carried out to steer the direction and the outcome of these uprisings as well as manage public opinion.
One step that is apparently being taken is the use of crisis actors, and in the footage below it seems quite obvious that this is taking place.
These video seems to be 100% authentic, but we are hoping to hear some other opinions on its authenticity, and what is actually happening in the Middle East right now.

2013-08-30 "CNN Caught Staging News Segments on Syria With Actors; Anderson Cooper and CNN have been caught staging fake news about Syria to justify military intervention"
by JG Vibes from "" []:
The primary “witness” that the mainstream media is using as a source in Syria has been caught staging fake news segments.  Recent video evidence proves that “Syria Danny”, the supposed activist who has been begging for military intervention on CNN, is really just a paid actor and a liar.
While Assad is definitely a tyrant like any head of state, a US invasion of the country is a worst case scenario for the people living there.
By pointing out that the mainstream media is orchestrating their entire coverage of this incident, we are not denying that there is a tremendous amount of death and violence in Syria right now.  However, we are showing that the mainstream media version of events is scripted and staged propaganda.
The following video shows him contradicting himself while off air, and even asking crew members to “get the gunfire sounds ready” for his video conference with Anderson Cooper on CNN.
(2012-03-01 "Truth About Danny Abdul-Dayem" posted to Youtube by SyriansWorldwide []: Rafik Lutif's first segment exposing the lies of the media surrounding the Syrian crisis. Fully translated in English showing you behind the scene clips of Danny Abdul Dayem, the Zionist. No war, no shelling, nothing...)
“Syria Danny” has also appeared on many other news programs, and every single time his story on specific events has changed.
This is not the first time that mainstream media has been exposed as propaganda, it happens all the time, especially during times of war.
Some of the most hyped up news images of our time surrounding war were not actually real but were simply public relations stunts, designed as psychological warfare operations.
No one in America can forget the image of Saddam Hussein’s statue being toppled and covered with an American flag, yet few people realize that this was a hoax, a staged psychological operation coordinated between the military and the media.  In July of 2004 journalist Jon Elmer exposed an internal army study of the war showing that this whole statue scenario was indeed a set up.
In the article Elmer writes “the infamous toppling of the statue of Saddam Hussein in Firdos Square in central Baghdad on April 9, 2003 was stage-managed by American troops and not a spontaneous reaction by Iraqis. According to the study, a Marine colonel first decided to topple the statue, and an Army psychological operations unit turned the event into a propaganda moment… The Marines brought in cheering Iraqi children in order to make the scene appear authentic, the study said.  Allegations that the event was staged were made in April of last year, mostly by opponents of the war, but were ignored or ridiculed by the US government and most visible media outlets.” ("Army report confirms Psy-ops staged Saddam statue toppling" from "The New Standard" newspaper)
The statue hoax was just one example in a long list of lies and psychological operations surrounding the multiple wars in Iraq.  At the onset of Operation Desert Storm in 1990 a public relations firm by the name of Hill and Knowlton spent millions of dollars on the government’s behalf, constructing news pieces that would sell the war to the American public.  One of the most moving pranks to come from this push to war was the testimony of a 15-year-old Kuwaiti girl, known only by her first name of Nayirah.  In a videotaped testimony that was later distributed to the media she said “I volunteered at the al-Addan hospital, While I was there, I saw the Iraqi soldiers come into the hospital with guns, and go into the room where . . . babies were in incubators. They took the babies out of the incubators, took the incubators, and left the babies on the cold floor to die.”
Sounds horrible huh?  Well, luckily it never happened, this too was a fabricated event designed to dehumanize the Iraqi people.  The whole thing was exposed when the journalists discovered that the witness Nayirah was actually the daughter of a US ambassador who was being coaxed by military psychological operations specialists.  If the government and media cooperate to deceive the American public during times of war then there should be no doubt in your mind that the same techniques are used during times of peace, and especially elections.
The following clip is another classic staged news segment that was aired by CNN:

2012-03-22 "CNN Crew Linked With Homs Bombings"
posted to Youtube by "SyriansWorldwide" []: CNN crew filming from Homs placed their camera in the window hours before the pipeline explosion took place. They positioned the camera correctly and took off to the location of the explosion to film it "hands on". Of course Mr. Rafik Lutif has gotten exclusive footage of the CNN crew behind the scenes. As soon as they returned from filming, the cameramen was in respiratory distress and had issues are you can hear. Also CNN claims to have no ties with Danny Abdul Dayem. Well think again (photo shown in video).

2013-09-01 "We Must Not Forget the Film of CNN Blowing up a Pipeline in Syria For News; CNN Crew Blow Up Syrian Pipeline To Blame on Government"
CNN destroy the pipeline which gives fuel to the Syrian people and then laugh about doing so. Do these people deserve to go to jail? What do you think?
Without CNN the pipeline would not have been destroyed. The Syrian people suffer because of CNN actions. If the media did not show all the terrorists films, innocent people would not have been killed. The media have blood on their hands for every death which has happened in Syria. They should be tried for war crimes, because they are the cause of thousands of deaths.
What would the US call it if a team of journalist went into their country and blew up a pipeline just to make a news story. They would be sent Guantanamo Bay as terrorists, yet it is ok for the US to enter other countries illegally and cause terrorist act.
You can understand now why Syria is against the media being in the country, when this is how the behave. These three should all be charged with acts of terrorism. The USA started with the war on terror and now the are the ones who are the terrorists. Double standards all round.
