BBC News – Syrian rebels try to use prisoner for suicide bombing 2012


The BBC has sensationally censored a report and video clips displaying Syrian rebels tricking a hostage to become a suicide bomber, war criminal activity under the Geneva Convention, presumably because it shows the gobalist media in a bad light trying to the FSA as saintly freedom fighters.

The clip, which can be seen above (the BBC edition was removed), reveals Free Syrian rebels planning a explosive device that is packed onto the back of a vehicle to be detonated at a govt checkpoint in the city of Aleppo.

The video explains how the rebels have taken over an apartment belonging to a Syrian police captain. The rebels are seen sneering at photos of  his family while they shout, “Look at their freedom, look how good it is,” while hypocritically enjoying the luxury of the man’s swimming pool.

The video then shows the captive who the rebels claim belonged to a pro-government militia. Bruises from torture on the prisoner’s body are explained away as having been metered out by the man’s previous captors. The BBC commentary emphasizes how well the rebels are treating the man, showing them handing him a cigarette.

However, the man has been tricked into thinking he is part of a prisoner exchange program when in reality he is being set up as an unwitting suicide bomber. The prisoner is blindfolded and told to drive the truck towards a government checkpoint.

“What he doesn’t know is that the truck is the one that’s been rigged with a 300 kilo bomb,” states the narrator.

The clip then shows rebels returning disappointed after it’s revealed that the remote detonator failed and the bomb did not explode.

The BBC narrator admits that forcing prisoners to become suicide bombers “would certainly be considered a war crime.”

New York Times reporters who shot the video claim they had no knowledge of the plot. A longer version of the clip is posted on the New York Times You Tube channel. The title of the clip glorifies the rebel fighters as “The Lions of Tawhid”.
