Rich wrote:As to the claims about Bosnia I think I read them at the time. But I didn't really follow the matter closely. For right or for wrong I was generally supportive of the NATO hawks in the former Yugoslavia, up until the issue broke out over Northern Kosovo. I wasn't aware of the details of the judge's ruling. But personally I have long wanted to see a massive reduction in the scope of libel and slander laws if not their out right abolition.
The documentary 'Judgement-Hoax of the Bosnian Death Camps' has been chased out of youtube, google and almost everywhere.
It was 30 minutes total but now only the first 2 parts of 10 minutes each remain. I have the full doco saved in some old hard drive but I did not manage to find it.
In any case, these are the 2 parts:
It is very interesting to watch this.
This is the image that fooled the world:
Within 20 minutes of ITV publishing this image, George Bush had declared war on Yugoslavia.
Penny Marshall received a Pulitzer for this.
The documentary proves beyond any doubt that:
1) The refugees in the refugee centre are sitting outside the barbed wire and the British journalists on the inside of the wire. That is the "inmates" in the supposed 'Muslim detention centre' are free, while the journalists have used a hole in the chicken wire to go into this transformer and film from inside the chicken wire.
2) There are no guards to be seen, preventing the refugees from leaving!
3) This is a refugee centre for all, not a "Serb detention centre for Muslims", there are Serbs, Croats and others in the refugee camp.
4) The emaciated person in the image is directly asked by Penny Marshall, why are you so thin? He replies, "I have a condition".
-Do they feed you well?
-Yes they do.
Upon return to the UK, ITN made its own documentary about this, put this image right next to a Warsaw Ghetto image, claimed that this person was being brutalised and that this was a concentration camp, when it was an open refugee centre and within 20 minutes the US had found its WMD's and had declared war on Yugoslavia!
