CNN Admits White Helmets Video was Fake, Just Like We Said It Was!


At the end of October, We reported on the fact that the White Helmets, who were nothing more than Islamic jihadists who pretended to be humanitarians, staged rescue of a little boy. However, we provided evidence at that time and called it a fake. Now the Revolutionary Forces of Syria Media Office is confirming proves we were right.

Tony Cartalucci, writing at Activist Post, explains:

CNN, among many other establishment media platforms, has long promoted the US-European funded “Syrian Civil Defence” also known as the “White Helmets.”

Yet on November 25, they published an article titled, “Syria’s White Helmets apologize for Mannequin Challenge video,” in which they admit:

It’s a familiar scene: Syria Civil Defence, also known as the “White Helmets,” rushing to rescue a man covered in rubble, but unlike thousands of other videos from Aleppo, this one is staged.

CNN would continue by claiming:

The nearly one-minute long video has been the subject of criticism on social media. On Wednesday Syria Civil Defence released a statement calling it an “error of judgment”.

“This video and the related posts were recorded by RFS media with Syria Civil Defence volunteers, who hoped to create a connection between the horror of Syria and the outside world using the viral ‘Mannequin challenge.’ This was an error of judgment, and we apologize on behalf of the volunteers involved,” the statement read.

Ignored by both the “White Helmets’” and RFS’ as well as CNN’s explanation of the video is the fact that the now admittedly staged video – besides the “mannequin challenge” style – is virtually indistinguishable from the “thousands of other videos from Aleppo” cited by CNN.

Just like “thousands of other videos from Aleppo” cited by CNN, the “victim” being “rescued” by the “White Helmets” is covered in dust and what appears to be blood, but otherwise uninjured. Unlike in a real bombing, those “rescued” by the “White Helmet” have their limbs intact, no deep, visible wounds, and lack any of the burns or trauma associated with weaponry used in modern combat.

It is unlikely that out of  the “thousands of other videos from Aleppo” cited by CNN, none of them would feature actual trauma, and instead feature only the dust and fake “blood” covered “victims” as seen in the recent, admittedly staged video, as well as during recently staged protests in Europe.

He then provided a letter from the Revolutionary Forces of Syria Media Office explaining the staging of the video.

It as a mannequin challenge! Yet, CNN reported it as though it was reality.

“The video is originally a short staged scene by RFS Media Office in contribution to the International #MannequinChallenge campaign,” the letter reads. “The video intends to realize international awareness about the Syrian revolution in general, and the members of the civil Defense, highlighting their role and sacrifices in protecting and saving the lives of civilians in Syria.”

Then, the clincher is stated.

“The video depicts the work of the White Helmets teams in the form of static mannequins to simulate reality. However, the regime used the video to distort facts and twist perceptions… RFS Media office stresses again that the video is a simulation of reality, and is part of the international #MannequinChallenge.”

“The regime’s allegations about ‘On the Edge of Death’ are telling half-truths and providing partial data, following the propaganda that Assad and his allies have been waging against the Syrian people since the Syrian revolution began.”

Pamela Geller cleared up a lot of what was going on with pictures and video as well in demonstrating that these are merely Islamic jihadists who are engaging in taqiyya in order to masquerade their murderous rampages.

Chalk this up to more fake news by CNN, who has been lying to the American people about what is going on in Syria for years! And still people wonder who the useful idiots are who get us into unconstitutional and illegal wars.
