    Would The Media Be Interested If Assad Set Up Re-Education Labor Camps For Political Dissidents?

    A couple of months ago, the mainstream media got all excited about leaked emails from Syrian President Bashar al-Assad and ‘bombshell’ revelations such as the fact that Assad’s wife likes to spend a lot of money on expensive furniture.

    Would that same corporate press be interested if documents were leaked showing that Assad’s military forces had set up detention camps in which they planned to incarcerate political activists and subject them to re-education programs and slave labor?

    Of course it would, the story would be all over CNN, ABC and Fox News. The documents would be heralded as chilling evidence that Assad is in charge of a dictatorial regime that plans to kidnap demonstrators and imprison them in North Korean-style gulags.

    Comment: But that is happening here and the MSM isn't talking abou it. Those happy talking heads on the TV sell us out for their job and the corps whos owners are planning to round us up.

    Could Syria’s Assad Face Indictment?...

    Is Syria’s Bashar al-Assad Guilty of War Crimes?
    May 31, 2012 - The images from Houla in Syria had a sickening familiarity: bodies wrapped in white shrouds, lined up in a large pit in the center of town while grieving relatives cried and wailed. In all, a reported 108 people, all victims of last week’s Houla massacre, were being buried, 49 of them children.
