First thing to note is, it is a Russian anchor interviewing an unnamed man who looks Middle Eastern but speaks perfect English. We know Russian propaganda about the U.S. can be rank, so take that into consideration as you listen to the video. The man is portrayed as a journalist in Tripoli. He says Libyan Rebels are threatening journalists, and journalists who are not really journalists are threatening, as well. He clearly says that CNN told him not to mention “al-Qaeda or anything like that or we would get killed.”
He says the U.S. and NATO are unhappy with “us,” and they are threatening British and French nationals because they are not “going with the NATO coverage.” He says NATO is not winning.
He reiterates that he and others are threatened by rebels and journalists.
While I can see that Barack Obama does not want rumors of al-Qaeda on the streets of Tripoli, and we do not know who the rebels are, after listening to this several times, I believe this man has an interest in something other than freedom. He mentions that the Cuban and Russian Embassies would give him shelter, but he can’t get there due to the fighting. What do you think? Thanks to Tallulah Starr on Twitter and on GulagBound, who always has breaking news.By the way, Russia is opposing calls for Syrian President Bashir Assad to resign. It’s plain they support world dictators.
