The mainstream news outlets on 25 December 2012 took the Defection of an Syrian Military Police Chief Maj. Gen. Abdul Aziz Jassem al-Shallal seriously has another major blow to the Syrian Arab Army morale even though the news outlets admitted that such defections before during the summer months had no effect on either the Syrian Arab Army nor had any effects on the government.
The Syrian Military Police Chief Maj. Gen. Abdul Aziz Jassem al-Shallal Defection video was posted on a United Press Office of the Syrian Revolution facebook page with YouTube videos showing the Al Nusra Front and its other Islamist terrorist fighters engaging in what it appears different battles, the once it got posted it was immediately reported by the Saudi Arabian State Regime News Network Al Arabiya.
During the day on 25 December international mainstream news outlets quickly reported what was been reported by Al Arabiya. Without looking into the source of where the original defection video came from.
The majority of the European, Canadian news outlets didn't bother looking into the source of the original upholder, they just reported what other news outlets reported. As stated the Syrian Military Police Chief Maj. Gen. Abdul Aziz Jassem al-Shallal Defection video was uploaded onto the United Press Office of the Syrian Revolution facebook page.
The United Press Office of the Syrian Revolution facebook page is an Pro Islamist Pro Mujahideen based facebook page which is hailing different Islamist bridges from the Syrian Mujahideen to the Al Nusra Front.
Something Doesn't seem Right About the Defection Story.
The way this Defection of the Syrian Military Police Chief Maj. Gen. Abdul Aziz Jassem al-Shallal has been carried and the way it has been reported it just doesn't seem right. CNN in there article regrading the defection cited Louai Miqdad, a spokesman for the rebel Free Syrian Army, speaking from Turkey.
Where he stated that Aziz Jassem al-Shallal had been planning his escape to Turkey for weeks with the help of rebels. But the question is why would Jassem al-Shallal escape to Turkey with the assistance from the Jihadist terrorists? if that indeed is the general in the video. There are parts in the news articles regrading the defection that dont seem right.
"In what could be one of the highest-level defections yet from the Syrian government, the country's military police chief has reportedly
If true, it would be only the latest in a rash of high-profile defections from al-Assad's government."
In a video posted online this week, a man identified as Maj. Gen. Abdul Aziz Jassim al-Shallal announced that he was joining the popular uprising.
"The last three hours of al-Shallal fleeing the borders were on a scooter," Miqdad said. "This is how hard things can get when it comes to the coordination of the defections of some of the Syrian officers and how the FSA works hard to guarantee their safety and the passageway of their families."
The problems within the article and its claims is how both CNN and NY Times stated how general Aziz Jassem al-Shallal fled Syria. CNN claimed that he fled on a Scooter for hours, well we both know that a Scooter cant last for hours most modern Scooters can only last several miles.
Scooters just aren't meant for long term riding, both mechanically and in terms of riding position. Ironical enough the New York times Kareem Fahi, and Rick Gladstone didn't want to follow the same narrative story has CNN did.
To make it more believable the New York times article claimed that General Shallal’s defection ended with a four-hour sprint by motorcycle to the Turkish border, driving through woods and on muddy roads.
That doesn't sound near believable.
According to the New York times article General Shallal’s defection had taken weeks to prepare which ended on a four hour sprint by a motorcycle to the Turkish border through woods and muddy roads.Opposition figures said General Shallal’s defection had taken weeks to prepare and ended with a four-hour sprint by motorcycle to the Turkish border, driving through woods and on muddy roads. In a video broadcast by Al Arabiya
That claim is not believable the reasoning is if any people were on a motorcycle driving through woods and muddy muddy you should probably realized it a motorcycle driving through muddy roads terrain is a difficult task. Many people get themselves stuck in a challenging position that they don’t want to be in.
However according to the New York times article from December its indeed possible to drive through woods and difficult muddy roads all that while on sprint. Lets also ignore the dangerous routes while driving through an woody and muddy road terrain which is impossible.
The most concerning issue is not whatever how the writers of both articles claimed how the supposed defector fled to Turkey but rather its more concerning of where the source came out to the news outlets, the original supposed source came from, the original source came from The United Press Office of the Syrian Revolution facebook page is an Pro Islamist Pro Mujahideen based facebook page.
Which is supposedly based in Turkey, due to the fact that they had posted what it appears to be several pictures of the Turkish Prime Minster, this same facebook group had posted several pictures which are not from Syria.
The United Press Office of the Syrian Revolution facebook page had posted several video's of the different Islamist FSA based groups in Syria showing off there fighters and brutal killings with the fact outlined the Mass news media outlets agencies seems to have ignored it.
The most troubling is that the news story of the supposed defection of General Shallal first appeared on the Saudi Arabian Regime state media Al Arabiya the first moment which the news article appeared the news story had quickly spread to the western mainstream news outlets. Without the experts on the MSM verifying the contexts of the article,sources the news story became the truth in the eyes on the western audience.
