You Are Being Fed Government Lies By A Compliant Media

Surprise, surprise. Another top-level "terrrrsts" capture turns out to be not all it seemed. Coming just days before Tony Blair faced re-election, the capture of Abu Faraj al-Libbi, described as the terrorists’ third in command, was hailed by Bush and others as “a critical victory in the war on terror”. It now turns out he was just a middle-ranker, derided by one source as “among the flotsam and jetsam” of the organisation. And perhaps worse yet, this may be yet another case of US agents confusing Arab names:
Bush called him a “top general” and “a major facilitator and chief planner for the Al- Qaeda network”. Condoleezza Rice, secretary of state, said he was “a very important figure”. Yet the backslapping in Washington and Islamabad has astonished European terrorism experts, who point out that the Libyan was neither on the FBI’s most wanted list, nor on that of the State Department “rewards for justice” programme.

Another Libyan is on the FBI list — Anas al-Liby, who is wanted over the 1998 East African embassy bombings — and some believe the Americans may have initially confused the two. When The Sunday Times contacted a senior FBI counter-terrorism official for information about the importance of the detained man, he sent material on al-Liby, the wrong man.
No doubt all the MSM channels will be rushing out apologies on this one...
