Media Censorship regarding Egyptian Military Handover

Want to get this up, since it has already been disappeared......
The CBC website this morning had posted a news article with the title :
Egypt's Military Pledges Civilian Handover
The opening sentence was as follows-

" Egypt's military leaders say they are committed to eventually handing over power to an elected civilian administration that will abide by its international agreements."

And then the news article changed!

In case you doubt what I am typing here..
Click this and this, to see for yourself, how many other blogs, sites, news feeds etc., had picked this story up with this opening sentence:


1st version " Egypt's military leaders say they are committed to eventually handing over power to an elected civilian administration that will abide by its international agreements."

Why am I even bringing this up, you ask? Good question!

First let me show you what the sentence changed to.

2nd version: "Egypt's military leaders said they are committed to abiding by international agreements and eventually handing over power to an elected civilian administration."

This change of one sentence delivers a different message from the first article. It also presents an interesting problem.
So, we have to ask..???

Which sentence correctly reports on what action the Egyptian military will be undertaking?

The first sentence presents to the readers an Egyptian military in charge of a nation and dictating the policy of the nation!
The Egyptian army is stating clearly they will only cede power to an elected Egyptian civilian government 'that will abide by international agreements.'

Therefore if a government is elected, democratically by the Egyptian people, that does not want to abide by all international agreements, the military will NOT hand over power to the elected government.

The second, revised version merely states that the Egyptian army will abide by international agreements, "EVENTUALLY" handing power over to an elected civilian administration.

The use of the word 'eventually' is still a frightful indicator of future problems. As one would think that once their is an elected civilian administration the military will hand over power IMMEDIATELY. That said the second sentence is no where near as brutally honest as the first.

I am going to suggest, in light of the fact that the military is run by outside powers that the first sentence is the correct pronouncement made by the Egyptian military.

And, that the CBC, upon realizing it had leaked the true nature of the military takeover of Egypt moved quickly to censor truth from the public domain!

  1. Good article.
    Mark Twain said something about lightning and lightning bugs.

    The word smiths and propaganda masters at the CBC are really something to watch. Stories move, change, disappear and dance. It is hard to explain or report on as so much happens in real time, but you did a good job showing how attention to detail matters.

    Many well meaning liberals are so quick to point out how FoxNews CTV and CNN are propaganda outlets. Duh, yeah. They sell more war to people who love war, easy peasy.
    The real masters of propaganda are PBS, CBC and BBC. They sell war to people who don't support it, no small feat.

  2. "Egypt's military leaders said they are committed to abiding by international agreements and eventually handing over power to an elected civilian administration."

    The key phrase here and how it was changed to the primary focus, is 'abiding by international agreements'. By international agreements they ONLY define it as that shitty little peace treaty with Israel. In regards to Egypt, this further translates to: Do not aid Gaza in any way and keep the border secured for Israel, and also do not interfere with our captive starvation of the Palestinians in our free-range concentration camp.

  3. HI Penny,
    A bit off topic but thought that that maybe this could be a sort of Plan B??

    Yemen is going this way as well as we can see by this report partly taken form an article posted here.

    (snip)
    "Human rights groups have reported that anti-government demonstrators in the capitol were attacked by men armed with knives.

    "Security forces brought out military and police in civilian clothes with knives, and they went into the crowd and started to attack the demonstrators," said Khaled Al-Anesi, a Yemeni human rights lawer, to CNN.

    Saleh has been in power in Yemen since 1978 and last week promised to step down when his term ends in 2013, hoping to appease demonstrators. He also promised not to pass power to his son.

    Both Yemen and Algeria saw demonstrations and clashes with police on Saturday, the day after Hosni Mubarak resigned as Egypt'''s president, a post he held for thirty years. At least 10 people were detained Friday night after anti-government demonstrators in Sanaa celebrated Mubarak'''s resignation, according to Human Rights Watch. [1]

    Thousands of protesters gathered in Yemen's capital, Sana'a, Saturday, calling for President Ali Abdullah Saleh to step down a day after Egypt's President Hosni Mubarak resigned. [2]

    Thousands of protesters gathered in Yemen's capital, Sana'a, Saturday to celebrate the resignation of Egyptian leader Hosni Mubarak and call for their own president, Ali Abdullah Saleh, to step down. [3] "

  4. Hey Penny,...Excellent; the duplicity of the Egyptian Armed Forces cannot be understated. The filthy yids orchestrated this mess and have absolutely no intention to relinquish their control, quite the opposite; they intend to expand upon and energize their control: eretz israhell! From the Nile to the Euphrates.

    My money says Jordan will be next to have revolutionary placards written in English waving in the streets.

  6. These glorious Soros/CIA revolutions involve many countries, and as mentioned here Yemen is in play.
    Tunisia started the ball rolling, and this model is now 'understood and expected' by us westerners.

    Yesterday was the first day that our corporate media swine IMO revealed the end game of all of this.

    Iran. For years we have all believed that a big war with them was immanent.
    Maybe the war has been canceled?
    Watching CBC/CNN yesterday covering the revolution craze sweeping the middle east, it appears that Iran is up next.....whether they want to be or not.

  8. thanks anonymous!

    "The real masters of propaganda are PBS, CBC and BBC. They sell war to people who don't support it, no small feat."

    good way to put it! Subtle and less obvious.

  9. HHQ:

    "By international agreements they ONLY define it as that shitty little peace treaty with Israel. In regards to Egypt, this further translates to: Do not aid Gaza in any way and keep the border secured for Israel, and also do not interfere with our captive starvation of the Palestinians in our free-range concentration camp."

    I would assume the military will keep all agreements International or otherwise.
    And this really angers and frustrates me at how they can do this to the Palestinians, in light of the fact the Palestinian people fed those ba$tard$ Grrr...

    Perhaps Kissinger was right when he said military men are dumb stupid animals?
    To stupid to think for themselves, To stupid to count on to be moral and humane.
    But,stupid enough to be directed and controlled into being the worst they can be!

  11. Veritas: regarding Jordan.
    If I had to pick one, I would think it would be Jordan, for the reason that Jordan is the intended home for the displaced Palestinians.
    And that Jordan is the next easy pickins'

    What about Libya?
    Anyone have any thoughts on that country?

  13. anonymous, again, yeah I noticed there is a push on to "get Iran"

  15. The International Agreement uppermost in israeli minds is the peace treaty with Egypt that gave them back the Sinai in exchange for piped water from the Nile. Mubarak has stalled that delivery of water for decades and recently refused point blank to supply that water.

    So Mubarak got the heave-ho. Now the pressure will be on the Egyptian Generals to deliver or there will be war one way or another.

    Israel is desperate now for water. The capture of the Litani river in Lebanon failed and so they are going for the Nile now.

  16. Hey Penny,...The whole Libya deal was bought and paid for when I was still on the job. They made Qaddafi an offer he couldn't refuse; kinda easy to bow down when a certain tribe known to be serial child-molesters threaten to murder your entire family in hideous ways. I mean, who wouldn't make deal to keep your wives and kids out of an Abu Gra'ib?

    Definitely have to agree with James Griffon: Blood for water, no doubts.
