Way, way more to this news then initially met the eye. Not a surprise, really. Is anything ever as it seems?
A most interesting commenter stopped by named Nikola. Nikola is Italian and has left info for which I have had to use the translate to sort through it all. But, Dammit! It has been worth it! What a saga.
Of course, I did a bit of digging on my own. Hoping we can get this narrative filled out.
Stay tuned for real life dramatics and intrigue. I am not kidding!
Euronews spoke to Cristiano Tinazzi regarding the 4 journalists. Cristiano "a journalist who has worked in Syria and with one of the reporters detained"
Who Is CRISTIANO TINAZZI, really?
Nikola, seems to be very much in the know about Mr Tinazzi. And has left some interesting information
Nikola :“Tinazzi, is a nazi reporter who works with military branch of Italian intelligence. In Lybia, he's try to kidnap and kill, by his new friends of ragtag of the TNC, a jamahiriyan member who hosted him for four months. In Syria, he travel from Hatay to Aleppo, alongside with the salafi-taqfirist terrorists killers of the FSA.”
You can only imagine how this disclosure took hold of my interest? Cristiano reminded me of another so called journalist. More aptly a journalist/spook. In case you have forgotten the individual I am thinking of
Let me remind you all about Marie Colvin:
Marie Colvin was a spook. I covered her death. By nail bomb ( I have to dig that post up). And more. Much more . Thousands read those posts.
Cristiano Tinazzi is equally spooky and considers himself a “gonzo journalist’.
Think.....Hunter S Thompson: Fear and Loathing in Las Vegas
Marie Colvin was clearly known to Cristiano. Cristiano even went so far as to pay homage to her upon her death at the hands of her compatriots- her terrorist friends La Piratessa di ferro
"When I saw her for the first time in Libya and me Rano immediately flashed to mind the stories of Salgari and the latest saga 'Pirates of the Caribbean' or Captain Hook, Harlock and so on and so forth. The pirate in question was Mary Colvin.”
I wonder if he was on location at the time of her death.
Cristiano Tinazzi is very spooky as you will see:
Nikola leaves a translation from the gonzo journalist's blog regarding Lizzie Phelan and company:
Nikola: "In this link, Cristiano Tinazzi, the little nazi-spy who works alongside the Italian military intelligence, denigrates Thierry Meyssan and Lizzie Phelan, describing them as agents of the Libyan dictator Gaddafi, in order to have them killed by the terrorists of the TNC, with which he was connected. In fact, Tinazzi, in previous years, had joined a committee of Italian-Libyan Jamahiriya friendship. He presented himself as a friend of Gaddafi. During the aggression against Libya, Tinazzi was a reporter and host of a member of the People's Committees of the Jamahiriya. But when NATO intervened, he suddenly began to exalt the NATO bombing and to demonize the Libyan Resistance. He even say, to the Iranian Radio - IRIB, he saw the mass graves (non-existent) of the Libyan regime... in order to support the TNC's narrative about the destruction of Jamahiriya.
After the fall of Tripoli, the TNC terrorists raided the house of the host of Tinazzi, in an attempt to torture and kill him. After Lybia, he flies to Syria, to conduct the same work alongside the same salafi-wahhabi libyan terrorists.
FYI: TNC is the Transitional Council that NATO installed in Libya. In case this is forgotten
Tinazzi seems to be a real user/looser. Leaving the person who hosted him while he stayed in Libya to be raided and attacked by his terrorist TNC pals. Nice guy...
Nikola indicates that Cristiano Tinazzi is in Syria. As the news of the 4 kidnapped reporters makes clear and obvious.Further bolstered by this...
His own profile from a group called “Lightstalkers” makes his location perfectly clear

Let’s look at Cristiano's itinerary?
08/03/12 Aleppo , Syria
07/28/12 Rome , Italy
06/20/12 Tunisi , Tunisia
06/15/12 Tripoli , Libya
10/14/11 Tunisi , Tunisia
08/21/11 Tripoli , Libya
03/30/11 Tripoli , Libya
08/03/10 Baghdad , Iraq
07/08/10 Baghdad , Iraq
03/29/09 Rome , Italy
03/23/09 Tripoli , Libya
Take particular notice of the fact that Mr Tinazzi is heading for Iraq
11/07/13 Bassora , Iraq
From his current location:
CurrentCristiano is going to Iraq. Bassora, Iraq
cristiano tinazzi is currently in Aleppo , Syria
Is Bassora, the same as Basrah? Looks to be. Basrah Iraq. Quite near the Iranian border.
What could soon be going on in Basrah, Iraq that will require the presence of the spooky “journalist” arms smuggler, Cristiano Tinazzi.?
Perhaps a separatist movement. An ‘autonomous’ region wanting to break away from the alleged tyranny of Maliki... Is NATO looking to get a divisive destabilization campaign going in Iraq?!
“Wail Abd al-Latif -- a Basra member of parliament and a former Basra provincial governor -- is leading the drive and has hinted that he wants the region to receive its own share of the oil income generated there, Visser said. The effort is also backed by a powerful local movement called the Fadhila Party.
Iraq is a collection of ethnicities and religions, and there has been a tug of war between a central government attempting to tie the country together and various groups pursuing their own interests”
The news from /08 indicates a separatist movement , armed, is a possibility.
Alternatively, with the help of Tinazzi, the intrepid spook/journalist who is linked to arms smuggling, could Basra be used to start a destabilization campaign of Iran from the border?
Options? We got'em.

Nikola helps makes the connection between Cristian and a covert arms shipment from Italy to Libya.
And perhaps onto Syria??????
