Damage Control: Syrian Rebels "rescued" the UN peackeepers

Another day, another batch of lies. 
Following up on yesterday's news:  Breaking! Syria "rebels" seize UN peacekeepes in Golan
 FYI: the above post was updated with a link back to the post covering news or lack thereof on the missing Canadian Peacekeeper
Syrian rebels 'rescued' the UN peacekeepers.....
This claim cannot be taken seriously. Obviously the NATO media is spinning to 'save face' here.
These rebels/NATO mercs are being supplied/armed and trained by the West. By NATO. By Israel.
And they kidnap UN peacekeepers under the watchful eye of Israel.
Damage control is clearly in order.
Hence this updated tripe from WP
 Syrian rebel group claims 20 U.N. observers were being rescued, not kidnapped
 A Syrian rebel group that claimed it had abducted a group of U.N. observers in the Golan Heights announced on Thursday that it had in fact rescued them from fighting in the area, and called on the United Nations to send a security convoy to pick them up.
Hardeeharhar...seriously the rebels/NATO mercs rescued the UN peacekeepers.
And you believe that, right?
Of course you don't!

 I am including the original url, as the WP story had initially put this news on line:

http://www.washingtonpost.com/world/middle_east/syria-rebels-abduct-20-un-observers/2013/03/07/00ca462c-8707-11e2-9d71-f0feafdd1394_story.html



Toronto Star is still reporting this as a kidnapping

Kidnapping of UN peacekeepers raises doubts about Syria's opposition

 The kidnapping came as the Syrian opposition was enjoying its highest level of support from the U.S., as Britain said it would increase aid to opposition forces, and as the Arab League signalled that its members should arm the rebels.

The attack on the peacekeepers appeared to take the opposition’s Free Syrian Army by surprise. Its leader, Gen. Salim Idriss, told the BBC that he would “do everything . . . I can to liberate them.” The apparent disconnect between the central command and splinter groups has raised anxiety among the rebels’ allies.
Reaction from the international community was swift — and angry.
The UN Security Council strongly condemned the kidnapping, and this month’s council president, Russian ambassador Vitaly Churkin, urged the captors to “stop this very dangerous course of action.” The incident has made it more difficult for the West to convince Russia to take stronger action against Assad.

If the Washington Post piece is indicative of  the usual Washington spin/lies/manipulations/management perception done to fool you. It appears the US might try to spin their way out of this incident. Can they?

  1. Hi Penny, it looks like an Israeli regime scam. Yahoodle and NYT reported the insurgents won't release their "guests" until the Syrians withdraw from Jamlah near the Israel border.

    1. An Israeli regime scam.Yes, that thought crossed my mind.
      In yesterday's post I mentioned biggest beneficiary: Israel
      I try to keep in mind that there are many agendas at play in this area
      And this one has Israel written all over it
      Notice the reporting on how FSA in Turkey didn't have a clue about this

      "The attack on the peacekeepers appeared to take the opposition’s Free Syrian Army by surprise. Its leader, Gen. Salim Idriss, told the BBC that he would “do everything . . . I can to liberate them.”

      We have to look at this two ways
      FSA is covering
      Or FSA aka NATO really was caught unawares by this. Which would indicate this originated in Israel. Look where it took place? Right under the nose of the Israeli's as the guard the border, build another border fence etc
      come on
      not credible
      which could only mean Israel was all over this one
      outside of the nato umbrella
      Their "guests" what bullshit

  2. Brian, Netanyahu might respond, "why should we fear our terrorists?"

  3. Correcting my misconception driven by several MSM articles. al Jamlah is on the ceasefire line in the Golan heights near the Israeli occupied zone, not Israel's border .
    The town is a good place strategically for intercepting supplies and terrorists flowing from occupied Golan as well as across Jordan's border.

  5. Off thread, but does anyone know anything about Lizzie Phelan? Her blog hasn't been updated since mid-November. Last time I googled nothing new either. There's no updating at her Wiki entry.

    1. jawbone, last time you inquired someone, possibly brian mentioned she is still on twitter
      have you checked there?
      It is not somewhere I generally go to so I cannot say, but, worth checking out

  6. Thnx, Penny -- I thought I'd left this question, but I didn't find it when I remembered to check.

    Appreciate your reply.

  7. Yes, they were being protected in the same way pedophiles watch out for little children.

    All that 'freedom' and democracy the USA is spreading is making me sick, probably the smell.

  8. Sana: Lamani: Abducted UNDOF Observers Released

    "Head of the UN Envoy's Office in Syria Mokhtar Lamani said that the UN Disengagement Observer Force (UNDOF) observers who were kidnapped days ago were released, indicating that they arrived ''safe and sound'' in Jordan after long and arduous negotiations." [...]

    Syria’s Jaafari Says Israel Facilitated UN Peacekeepers Abduction

    "[...] "Israel facilitated entry of Salafist elements into the buffer zone between Israel and Syria in Golan, which is considered a violation of the 1974 treaty signed between the two sides, Jaafari told reporters on Friday.

    "Israel wanted to repeat what it had done in south Lebanon in 1970s when they created an isolating area and appointed a Lebanese officer to fight for them".

    "For achieving such aim, peacekeepers should be evacuated from Golan," he added.

    “Two weeks ago, seven terrorist from the same armed group that took the Filipino contingent staffers hostage where also rescued by the Israelis through the separation line, treated in Israeli hospitals and returned at an undisclosed place on the line of separation, according to the Israeli official statement.” he said.

    “So that proves to itself that the Israelis are cooperating with these armed groups and terrorist groups.”"

    Jaafari also dismissed the notion that Assad government operations were endangering the hostages or impeding their release.

    “We know what we are doing and we know where the peacekeepers are. Our task is to rescue these peacekeepers and safeguard their lives.”" [...]

  9. Yeah, this UN peacekeeper kidnapping looks like it was orchestrated by Israel acting on their own separate from USA/NATO. And probably without the latter's knowledge. Israel is known for these kinds of unilateral ops when its interests are involved. Stealing more land from Syria appears the reason behind their action, since this will probably reduce or drive off the UN peacekeepers that are in Israel's way. Made a comment to this effect at MoA, not sure if it will still be there tomorrow, though, given the recent lunacy.
