“The body of Marie Colvin, a veteran correspondent for The Sunday Times of London who was killed in a shelling attack in the Syrian city of Homs, will likely be buried inside Syria”
I am getting a very Osama Bin Laden feeling about this.
Recall when the US “got their man” in Pakistan? The body was buried at sea. A narrative ended. Sure. But, with more questions then answers and no way to verify the claim. Convenient.
Marie Colvin, conveniently, is going to be buried in Syria. So the story ends. All the questions surrounding Marie Colvin and her reality will remain.
What the burial in Syria of the "revered" journalist does, like the OBL burial at sea, is tidily end the official narrative.
Her mother seems quite accepting of this fate. ....
The mother doesn’t say, anything I would expect a mother to say-
“I would love to have my baby’s body back, to bury near me, so I can visit her grave”.
“I feel angry at being denied the right to bury my own child”
Instead the mother reinforces the official narrative? I'll quote-
"They were first in another house, and the top floors there were blown off," the elder Colvin said."
First (the Syrian forces) rocketed the front of the building," she said, fueling suspicion that the attack against a makeshift media center where Colvin and Ochlik were holed up was no accident.”
Really? Why? This makes no sense. No sense to me whatsoever!

Marie Colvin: Is a false narrative being created to justify an attack on Syria?
Which got a lot of responses, thanks to all who left responses.
Specifically, thank-you to the Anonymous commentor, who left the link enabling me to do this update.
