Al Qaeda goes to Hollywood

"An exclusive Grayzone investigative documentary film rips the cover off of the most sophisticated and expensive campaign of humanitarian interventionist propaganda in modern history."
The Syria Deception: Al-Qaeda Goes to Hollywood

For decades, Western governments, corporate media and Hollywood have engaged in a project of mass deception to manufacture consent for military interventions. Waged in the name of lofty ideals like freedom, human rights and democracy, US-led wars in Iraq, Afghanistan and Libya wound up bringing death, destruction and even the return of slavery to the African continent. As the wounds from those catastrophes festered, Washington embarked on its most ambitious project yet, marketing another war of regime change, this time in Syria.

This investigative mini-doc exposes the cynical deceptions and faux humanitarianism behind the campaign to sell the dirty war on Syria. It will also demonstrate the lengths that the US and its allies have gone to develop new ploys to tug at Western heartstrings and convince even liberal minded skeptics of war that a US intervention was necessary — even if it meant empowering Al Qaeda’s largest franchise since 9/11 and its theocratic allies among the insurgency. Big lies and little children have formed the heart of what is perhaps the most expensive, sophisticated, and shameless propaganda blitz ever conducted. Welcome to the Syria Deception.

[24 minute documentary, also available at YouTube. YouTube carries a warning that the video contains disturbing material; it does in a few parts -- summary executions, etc. but nothing that anyone who's followed the news on wars in Afghanistan, Iraq, Libya, and Syria would find shocking.]
