Aleppo Propaganda Campaign Exposed — Rebel Activists Caught Posing as Civilians Under Siege

Aleppo, Syria – A well-orchestrated social media propaganda campaign, coming out of Aleppo, has shifted into overdrive after the Syrian Arab Army reclaimed the city. The country’s own military took back control after heavy fighting with Nusra Front, al-Qaeda’s army in Syria, and other Islamist-affiliated forces, who are laughably known in the West as the “moderate rebels.”

Videos of what have been reported in mainstream media to be average Syrian citizens pleading for international assistance in the face of an all-out genocide have been beamed across the whole of western corporate media into European and American homes.

But there is one major problem with these well-articulated video pleas: these aren’t simple civilians of Aleppo, but bloggers and filmmakers – who have played active roles in supporting the regime change operation – who are now magically being given prime time slots for worldwide TV coverage. Interestingly, Aleppo has no cell service or electricity, so how these “civilian” videos are being recorded/disseminated is also an open question, which implies less than organic means.

According to Anissa Naouai, host of RT’s ‘In the Now’, a quick search of the Internet reveals the identities of these “civilians.”

Those “final messages” from Aleppo Syria look more like a coordinated PR campaign
