Aaron Klein keeps up his coziness to the regime of Syrian dictator Bashar al-Assad with a new twist -- giving it the privilege of anonymity.
In a July 31 WorldNetDaily article, Klein cited "a senior Syrian official" to claim that "Russian intelligence has information that U.S. troops are in Turkey near the country’s border with Syria."
You know the funny thing about this? Klein can't verify it. He even admits that his anoymous official's claim "could not be immediately verified." Klein provided no evidence of why anyone should trust his source or his reporting in general, let alone why he felt the need to protect a murderous regime by hiding behind anonymity.
After claiming that "it is not the first time the American military has been accused of aiding the insurgency targeting Bashar al-Assad’s regime" -- in which he cites even more anonymous sources -- Klein adds: "Any aid to the rebels is highly controversial."
Apparently, aiding a murderous regime -- which Klein is essentially doing by cozying up to them to the point where he feels comfortable granting them anonymity -- isn't "highly controversial" as far as Klein is concerned.
