Did a post a few days ago about the media reporting certain things and not others, and then this happens, which highlights what I was or trying to say. There is another hostage situation in Iraq, which would be old news if it had been reported. The hostages were taken in May this year, but for whatever reasons MI5 etc decided that it shouldn’t be overly reported in the media. Whatever? But then why all of a sudden start reporting it now? Perhaps it is because the British Government has been given 10 days to withdraw troops from Iraq which makes it news worthy now, unfortunately no one seems to know whether the 10 days started when video was recorded, 18th Nov or when it appeared in the media 28th Nov, so the poor bloke could already be dead, or very close to being found in a Baghdad street. One other thing worth mentioning is that the group holding the hostages are believed to have links to Iran, and on the same day the story broke the US secret services had announced that they didn’t believe that Iran had the nuclear capabilities it was first thought they had. Coinsidence or conspiracy, cos the more bad press Iran gets the more the US government will use it to justify some sort of action against Iran.
