|Man in a Desert||
Taking a leaf from Gaddafi's notebook, the following video purports to show what I assume are supposed to be hallucinogenic pills destined for distribution to protesters in Syria and intercepted by the regime's ever-alert security services.
Now who would do such a thing?
Ta da! The pills are packed in bags bearing the logo of: Al Jazeera! Who else! And you hear the intelligence guys saying, "Let the Syrian people see... This is Al Jazeera? Are these ethics? Is this the freedom they want?"
I've worked at Al Jazeera for the past 15 years, heck I helped launch it in 1996, but it never entered my mind that the real reason for Al Jazeera's success is that we're drug dealers!
Whoever said that the phrase "intelligence service" is a contradiction in terms was right!
