Report of Arab League Observer Mission leaks out

Well, well, well.  Looks like western pressitutes have been misrepresenting the situation in Syria.  Which makes sense since it is probably Western-supported groups posing as Syrian opposition.  But look at me, preaching to the choir!

26. In Homs and Dera‘a, the Mission observed armed groups committing acts of violence against
Government forces, resulting in death and injury among their ranks. In certain situations, Government forces
responded to attacks against their personnel with force. The observers noted that some of the armed groups
were using flares and armour-piercing projectiles.

27. In Homs, Idlib and Hama, the Observer Mission witnessed acts of violence being committed against
Government forces and civilians that resulted in several deaths and injuries. Examples of those acts include the
bombing of a civilian bus, killing eight persons and injuring others, including women and children, and the
bombing of a train carrying diesel oil. In another incident in Homs, a police bus was blown up, killing two
police officers. A fuel pipeline and some small bridges were also bombed.
Ed. note:  I noted that the acts of violence against civilians was NOT attributed to Syrian government forces.

28. The Mission noted that many parties falsely reported that explosions or violence had occurred in
several locations. When the observers went to those locations, they found that those reports were unfounded.
Ed. note:  But not unreported by the western press.

29. The Mission also noted that, according to its teams in the field, the media exaggerated the nature of the
incidents and the number of persons killed in incidents and protests in certain towns.

B. Verifying that Syrian security services and so-called shabiha gangs do not obstruct peaceful
Ed. note:  And yet, strangely enough, not reported by western press.

44. In Homs, a French journalist who worked for the France 2 channel was killed and a Belgian journalist
was injured. The Government and opposition accused each other of being responsible for the incident, and both
sides issued statements of condemnation. The Government formed an investigative committee in order to
determine the cause of the incident. It should be noted that Mission reports from Homs indicate that the French
journalist was killed by opposition mortar shells.
Ed. note:  Sarkozy will make any sacrifice.

49. Twenty-two observers declined to complete the mission for personal reasons. Some observers offered
unfounded reasons, which were not accepted by the Head of the Mission, while others had a personal agenda.
Ed. note:  I'd like to know what those personal agendas are.

50. Some observers reneged on their duties and broke the oath they had taken. They made contact with
officials from their countries and gave them exaggerated accounts of events. Those officials consequently
developed a bleak and unfounded picture of the situation.
Ed. note:  Would those countries happen to be allies of the U.S., France, and/or the U.K.?

61. The Mission does not have portable two-way radios for communication between team members. The
Chinese Embassy provided 10 such radios as a gift to the Mission. They were used in three sectors only.

Ed. note:  The U.S., France, and U.K. were hellbent on UN-sanctions for Syria, but couldn't be bothered to equip the monitors?

Ed. note:  This editor learns that Barbara Walters' middle name is Jill.  Very disappointing.

Page 26, Annex 3  Observers who withdrew from the League of Arab States Observer Mission
Ed. note:  Only noting the ones with no explanation provided:
Algeria 1
Tunisia 4
Egypt 1
Morocco 2
Sudan 1
Jordan 1

Ed. note:  how much is Algeria still influenced by France, Tunisia & Egypt have a Western-backed government, Morocco has incipient civil war, Sudan receives considerable aid from the U.S., and UAE & Jordan are a U.S.-allies.
