Did those nasty old Al Qaeda terrorists actually burn these captives
alive? Fox News jumped at the chance to publicize this hoax-within-a-hoax
last week. It's all part of the Wag The Dog terror war and you
just how easy it is for reversed speech to penetrate the illusion!

FOX NEWS STILL PIMPING FOR FAKE AL QAEDA
Last weekend (2/16) I got a note from one of our supporters asking
about a Fox News story that had just been posted. The story
short but ugly propaganda film from Iraq, and Fox News claimed it
showed Al Qaeda "insurgents" burning three captured men alive.
According to Fox, the scene was part of a larger film originally posted
on Google in December. Why it would then become news in
mid-February is a mystery known only to Fox. However, we are
resurgence of war propaganda in the media after a two-month break and
Fox is certainly doing its part.

My correspondent wanted to know if the film was another production of
the Florida-based "As Sahab Studio" that produces all the Al Qaeda
videos for Houston and the White House, or was it perhaps the real
thing. It did not sport the familiar logo, and the home-made
made it seem authentic. The video is only forty seconds long, but
quick scan for reversed speech in the film's audio track would easily
reveal if the main actor was actually an Arab or, as has always
been the case in the past, an American military intelligence operative
or "private contractor" mercenary simply pretending to be Al
Fox offered two links to the video, with the obligatory warning that it
was not for the squeamish. The Google link didn't work.
Google had been alerted by the Fox story and removed the video since it
obviously violated their standards. During the day, someone
attempted to upload it again (I found it with a keyword search), and
Google promptly removed that one as well. Following this, Fox

worked just fine. Oddly enough, a logo pasted on the film
was actually being hosted in the U.S. Even more interesting, Fox posted a photo that was in much higher resolution
than was available from the web. Like me, you can wonder
where they got it.
Here is the video link that worked, but before you go there (you
certainly don't have to!) I should tell you that the film is a

as Fox suggested, it would be a horrifying sight.
In fact, they are quite obviously dead to begin with. From their
slumped positions you will notice that they never make a sound, and
never react to what is happening. The two on the left are

illusion, but it is the only movement shown by the "captives" during
the entire production.
The film is short and the reading of the death sentence takes only
about twenty seconds. At first I was disappointed because English
phrases didn't immediately show up in the reversed audio. I

Those three reversals are
all we need to prove that the video is a hoax within a hoax, but (and
we've seen this before) once the real action starts and emotional
stress levels start to peak, we are gifted with quite a bit more.
Since I have a great interest in the workings of the mind, and the
window into the unconscious that reversed speech provides, I decided to
see what else could be found.
As the indictment and sentencing
script ends, it's time to get down to business and drag and push the
bodies into the fire pit. The bodies were positioned only two or
feet from the edge, because any greater distance would require them to
be dragged or carried far enough that the viewer could easily see they
were seriously dead. Nonetheless, it was a lot easier to plan
do, and obviously takes some effort.
It is in the moment of
dramatic action that unconscious speech really opens up. The
standardized script calls for them all to be shouting out praises to
Allah as they go to work. We hear multiple voices at once, but
pick them out as one man or another is louder than the others, or
closer to the microphone:
RIGHT HERE IN FRONT OF YOU!

It turns out that dumping the bodies into the fire pit is not as easy
as it might seem. The first two were roped together, apparently
only way to keep the first one (front left) upright. This problem
compounded by the fact that bodies are now soaked with gasoline.
can't see the comedy here if you are thinking that these guys are still
alive. But once you see through the illusion, you can get a good
laugh. The gasoline vapors ignite in a big whoosh and I guarantee
at least one imitation Al Qaeda warrior was singed in the process.
The reversals during this final ten or eleven seconds of the video are
pretty interesting. One man is really into the affair and urges
men on. The one who is trying to dump the first body in the pit
goes up in flames himself when the gasoline vapors ignite and he
unconsciously shouts his alarm. This is immediately followed by
other voices in unison saying "SO HOT!" This is a rare find.

There was nothing like this from the leader, indicating that lying is
part of his profession (to him it is just the script for today) and not
worth comment. But in the last few seconds at least one man had

astonishing "COW MANURE!"

finishes his plea: "OKLAHOMA."

allied soldiers. Those attacks were real, and brave men died to
the propaganda stream for the people back home. We explored four
these in a previous report.
It is all part of the grand illusion that we are fighting an implacable
enemy instead of turning over the world's second and third largest oil

I must also point out that in this brave new world of fantasy news and
all-pervasive illusion, I have not found a single news provider among
broadcast or print media that is not a wholly compliant channel for
false or distorted information, usually hundreds of times each day in
one form or another. As far as I can tell, this universal
matrix of disinformation extends to Canada, the U.K., and most of
Europe as well.
This is why I believe it is absolutely vital that we encourage at least
one person we know to obtain some skill at reversed speech. You
truly powerless when you don't have any idea of what is actually going
on. Worse yet, the hell into which we are falling is all
about money and you know that greed is never satisfied. That
means that without a popular means of finding truth this situation can
only get worse with no end in sight.
