Believe It This Time. Really

Libya: BBC concocts mass grave story in brazen propaganda piece

"In a truly stunning display of dishonesty, the BBC has reported, citing no evidence to back its claim, that a mass grave containing over 1,200 bodies has been found in Tripoli’s Abu Salim prison complex. The BBC attempts to tie this ‘finding’ to the equally concocted ‘Abu Salim prison massacre’, as it claims that the bodies are those of the inmates supposedly killed in 1996.

In a piece posted today, the BBC uses the headline: “More than 1,200 bodies found in Tripoli mass grave“. Categorically, absolutely, unequivocally, this is an out-and-out lie; 1,200 bodies have not been found.

This is revealed to the reader within the BBC’s own concocted report in the paragraphs that follow (emphasis mine):
A mass grave believed to contain up to 1,270 bodies has been found in the Libyan capital, Tripoli, says the National Transitional Council (NTC).
The remains are thought to be those of inmates who were killed by security forces in 1996 in the Abu Salim prison.

Excavation at the site is expected to start soon.

Several bone fragments and pieces of clothing have already been found in the top soil.
While the unelected, illegitimate terror council known as the NTC claims to have found merely ‘several bone fragments‘, the BBC claims that 1,200 bodies have been found in its deliberately misleading headline.

Even this weak slew of lies from the BBC exposes the fragile nature of the ‘Abu Salim massacre’ propaganda, as it refers to the evidential basis of the event (emphasis mine):
A few eyewitnesses have talked about the fact they were killed in their jail cells by grenades and sustained gunfire after a protest.
Officials in the new government say they will need foreign forensic help to determine exactly what happened there.
The BBC’s report contains testimony from a ‘Sami Assadi’, who claims to have lost two brothers in the incident.
“Mixed feelings really. We are all happy because this revolution has succeeded, but when I stand here, I remember my brothers and many, many friends have been killed, just because they did not like Muammar Gaddafi.”
The inclusion of this testimony is a blatant attempt to twist and distort the reality on the ground. The BBC suggests that the ‘revolution’ has succeeded. In reality the ‘rebels’ and the foreign soldiers & special forces leading them, don’t even hold Tripoli, in addition to countless other locations still held by the Libyan resistance. These include Bani Walid and Sirte – locations now subject to NATO-prescribed blockades in an attempt to starve the resistance into submission, coupled with lethal bombing campaigns.

In its crude attempt to deceive the public, the BBC even manages to contradict itself in this one-page report. The testimony it provides above suggests that the alleged victims of the ‘Abu Salim massacre’ were killed because they “did not like Gaddafi“, while the BBC itself claims earlier in the piece, that they were killed for protesting against conditions in the prison."

1999 - "Mass graves" in Kosovo justification for NATO bombing

2003 - "Mass graves" in Iraq justification for Iraq invasion and occupation

2011 - Jewish groups push to find Holocaust mass graves

And by cracky, they'll find them.

Hi Nolo...I felt the same way when I read that story...deja vu...from when the same bunch said the same thing about finding mass graves in Iraq. Later it was found that they had just discovered a graveyard.

Hey....we have many "mass graves" behind every old church in North America.

Yet another attempt to sway public opinion in favour of "the rebels".

It's a case of them being so exhausted with their "evil ways" that they can't even concoct a new story.

Yeah it's amazing how they use the same tired MO so much. But they've lied about every aspect of this shameful Libyan takeover.

Well, from talks with typical dumbed down fauxified Amurkins, it's still quite obvious that many continue to buy the lies, so i guess that's why they do it.

It begins with basic Muslim hatred and ignorance and after that, any Muslim leader they want to turn into another Hitler, they do it and the dumbed down fall for it every time.
