If Pentagon paid $540m to PR firms for false videos – Who is behind the C4 videos against Sri Lanka?

They say, the first to be killed at wars is the truth. The discovery of the US Government paying foreign firms to produce lies that have justified illegal wars and occupations leading to the suffering and displacement of so many is certainly of concern. Tragically, the mainstream media are silent and the big mouths wailing about human rights and freedoms are also silent as are many others. This now raises the question of how credible the C4 videos on Sri Lanka are timed perfectly before Geneva Resolutions and now gone into silent mode! US tax dollars are being used to make false films and videos. Manufactured news is not ethical. Playing with people’s minds is unfair. It has justified false wars and illegal occupations and even regime change. People have every right to be questioning – nothing is as it is or is shown to be.

The USA pattern of lies, deceits, and pretends know no ends, and will continue until people wake up and begin questioning the lies.

A joint investigation by the Sunday Times and the Bureau of Investigative Journalism claims that the US White House tasked Bell Pontinger to make fake terrorist videos in Iraq as part of an enormous propaganda campaign between 2007 and 2011. Bell Pontinger took $540m to fabricate short TV segments inside the US camp in Iraq with 300 British and Iraqi staff. Bell Pontinger staff reported to the CIA, the National Security Council and the Pentagon on the project with a mandate to portray Al-Qaeda in a negative light and track suspected sympathizers. Bell Pontinger was used because US law prohibits the government from using propaganda on its population.

Colour labels distinguished the type of operation – Grey ops – television commercials showing Al Qaeda negatively shown as designed by Arabic TV. The CDs would be taken by US marines and dropped at houses they raided.  Read more at http://thefreethoughtproject.com/pentagon-fake-terrorist-videos/#0MC5d5cuu2t7YG6M.99


In 2009, it was reported that the Pentagon had hired controversial PR firm, The Rendon Group, to monitor the reporting of journalists embedded with the U.S. military, to assess whether they were giving positive” coverage to its missions. Talk about media freedom!

Washington based PR company the Lincoln Group had been placing articles in newspapers in Iraq which were secretly written by the US military. Where’s the access to the war for journalists if these coverages are written by US military?

Please listen to Martin Wells who reveals what he was tasked to do. http://labs.thebureauinvestigates.com/fake-news-and-false-flags/

Ron Paul Institute for Peace & Prosperity in their facebook asks

Did you ever wonder about those Osama bin Laden videos, or beheading videos, or other “al-Qaeda” videos? Turns out you were right to be suspicious. The Pentagon paid a UK public relations firm half a billion dollars to make fake terrorist propaganda and false-flag videos, some of which came back to the United States to propagandize us. Do you feel safer? Money well spent?”

This takes us back to 2010 when CIA admitted staging fake Jihadist videos in 2010



In another 2010 Washington Post article authored by former Army Intelligence Officer Jeff Stein features a detailed account of how the CIA admittedly filmed a fake Bin Laden video during the run up to the 2003 Iraq war

In 2015 President Obama even explained why they needed a false flag every week –


So we have a military intervention and occupation of Iraq based on lies, to sustain the lies we have PR firms to fool the masses with false videos and the day before 9/11 Pentagon couldn’t account for $2.3 trillion and now in 2015 audit reveals they can’t account for $6.5trillion!

So when ISIS releases a list of US cities it plans to attack – you seriously have to wonder who is behind the stunt! http://www.conspiracyclub.co/2015/11/17/alert-isis-false-flag-on-america/ paid a UK public relations firm half a billion dollars to make fake terrorist propaganda and false-flag videos, some of which came back to the United States to propagandize us. Do you feel safer? Money well spent?

We now enter another false intervention – Syria where in 1957 – the British and American leaders approved the use of Islamic extremists and false flag attacks to topple the Syrian government. History repeats and has repeated. http://www.washingtonsblog.com/2014/07/57-years-ago-u-s-britain-approved-use-islamic-extremists-topple-syrian-government.html

Daniel Patrick Welch an American writer and political analyst says US and Western media coverage of Russia and Syria consists of virtually nothing but lies


It has reached such a point that only 6% of Americans trust the mainstream media: All the lies about vaccines, GMOs and false economic statistics are finally sinking in



Some views of people around the world

We have every right to question the C4 footage against Sri Lanka. C4 has won awards though not one footage was shot by C4 and none of the eyewitness accounts comes from journalists. What is the authenticity of bits and pieces put together and declare it a documentary. How do we know whether these were not filmed by LTTE tv crew who had a habit of doing the same. In fact Shyam Tekwani an expert in terrorism and media working for Asia Pacific Centre for Security Studies compared the ‘tone and tenor’ of the documentary to LTTE’s propaganda production wing saying it was ‘clearly an effort to sensationalize and shock with carefully selected and edited footage, the documentary weakens its case and invites and investigation into its own credibility and accountability to journalistic norms. The volume of the testimony it uses as evidence is not enormous and most of its derived from leading questions’.

Incidentally, C4’s star witness Vany K was a LTTE cadre.

A A Gill described the footage as ‘unattributed and uncorroborated’ saying ‘not a second of this has been shot by Channel 4 – none of the witness accounts comes from journalists’. He also said Jon Snow’s narration was ‘intemperate and partisan’ and ‘was all held together by assumptions’.

Put all this in the context of money being paid for false videos we can only demand to know who was behind the production of the C4 videos, who paid for it and who wrote the scripts?

  • 2010/2011 Current Affairs – International category of the Royal Television Society’s Television Journalist Award
  • One World Media Award in categories of Television and Documentary
  • Nominated for BAFTA TV Award in Current Affairs in 2012.
  • C4 broadcast – produced by ITN & film maker Callum MaCrae
  • 25 August 2009 video showing naked and blindfolded victims being executed (allegedly by Sri Lankan soldiers)
  • 14 June 2011 – 1st screening of ‘Sri Lanka’s Killing Fields’
  • 11 March 2012 – 2nd screening Sri Lanka’s Killing Fields: War Crimes Unpunished
  1. A. Yfantis, a professor of computer science at University of Nevada-Las Vegas specialising in computer graphics and image processing, stated that “based on mathematical analysis, blood in the 3GP videos is not real blood. It is not clear if the blood in the 3GP scenes is water with red dye or digitally constructed or edited video blood” and that “video graphic and mathematical analysis of the two 3GP videos show that the videos either were edited, or staged, or both”.

Inspite of these ASSUMPTIONS C4 ends up getting international awards!

C4 cannot get away if they have committed lies. We are all in shock over the millions spent for fooling the masses by the Pentagon. We certainly have every right to question the C4 killing fields video as well and hopefully the investigative journalists that uncovered the Bell Potinger fake videos should also investigate the Killing Fields videos as well.
