(EDITORS NOTE : I will list this as totally unconfirmed, both by top level sources in Iraq, Kurdistan and intelligence operatives in Jordan. Though the story was released and picked up, and Sibel, a person of great personal integrity is carrying it on her website, I would normally ask for 24 hours before publishing.
Consider this, moving any troops through the region would require driving past thousands of people with mobile phones with video upload capability.
Where were all of them? With only 8000 troops in Iraq, 5000 contractors, all rear eschelon and State Department only in the Green Zone, nobody in Jordan, nobody in Lebanon, no forces in Israel, the logistics referred to here are unimaginable.
A look at the local road maps will tend to explain it all. “You can’t get there from anywhere.” Time will tell. Gordon Duff)
Update Dec. 17th: We still have absolutely no confirmation on this.
According to first-hand accounts and reports provided to Boiling Frogs Post by several sources in Jordan, during the last few hours foreign military groups, estimated at hundreds of individuals, began to spread near the villages of the north-Jordan city of “Al-Mafraq”, which is adjacent to the Jordanian and Syrian border.
According to one Jordanian military officer who asked to remain anonymous, hundreds of soldiers who speak languages other than Arabic were seen during the past two days in those areas moving back and forth in military vehicles between the King Hussein Air Base of al-Mafraq (10 km from the Syrian border), and the vicinity of Jordanian villages adjacent to the Syrian border, such as village Albaej (5 km from the border), the area around the dam of Sarhan, the villages of Zubaydiah and al-Nahdah adjacent to the Syrian border. –
Faux Syria Coverage by Western Media’s Illegitimate Child
By Sibel Edmonds
Yesterday we broke the developing story of US-NATO troop deployment on the Jordanian-Syrian Border. I’ve been monitoring the media for any relevant coverage. So far I have found ‘none.’ Then, today I found a very twisted, one-sided, and completely West-Driven video report on some developments along the Syrian-Jordanian border. The report comes from the long-bought and independent-imposter news agency Al-Jazeera, you know the one who heavily beat the war drums during the Libya development? Okay, please watch the following Faux Video Report by the Al-Jazeera Drummer Boys and Girls, and let me know all the things you find wrong, missing, and ‘influenced’ within it:
Allow me to go first: no comments asked or requested from the Syrian government. No mentioning of the recent developments in Jordan … I think these pretenders have some gene-pool connection to the US media. Maybe a distant cousin? An illegitimate child? Now your turn…
