More WND Writers Rush to Defend Assad's Regime In Syria
Topic: WorldNetDaily

Aaron Klein isn't the only WorldNetDaily writer taking the side of Bashar Assad's murderous regime in Syria.

Jerome Corsi writes in a June 20 WND article:

Libyan expatriate sources proven to be credible have posted a gruesome video on YouTube showing a group of Syrian “rebels” brutally beheading a man and shooting two women and tossing their bodies down a hole in the ground.

The Libyan expatriates forwarded the video to WND to make bolster their claim that the “rebel forces” about to be armed by the Obama administration are made up of radical Islamic terrorist groups with international ties to al-Qaida.

Given that Corsi once called the researchers who plagiarized from other news articles for a smear job on Obama as "trusted Kenyan professionals," his faith in these supposedly "credible" Libyan expatriates should be skeptically at best.

On the other hand, Corsi's article embeds the video in question, with the tantalizing disclaimer "Viewers are warned that the video is so horrific that it could be psychologically disturbing."

Meanwhile, in another June 20 WND article, Michael Maloof places his faith in authoritarian Russian leader Vladimir Putin to defend the Assad regime," touting "a little-publicized revelation by Russian President Vladimir Putin his country has evidence chemical laboratories in Iraq produced weapons for the Sunni rebels."

While Maloof concedes that "Putin did not detail the sourcing of that evidence, the name or location of the laboratory," he doesn't explain why a man who stole a Super Bowl ring should be trusted.
