2/15/17 Rick Sterling discusses Amnesty International’s sordid history using false accusations to stoke wars – this time in Syria

Rick Sterling, an investigative journalist based in the San Francisco Bay Area, discusses the many flaws in Amnesty International’s report accusing the Syrian government of executing thousands of political prisoners in mass hangings. This is AI’s contribution to the West’s propaganda machine that is trying to escalate the war in Syria and push for Assad’s ouster. AI has previously backed up false accusations (the infamous incubator babies) against Iraq in the lead up to the Gulf War and against Libya in 2011 as the US-backed regime change operation progressed.
