Amy Goodman: Interview Eva Bartlett, Vanessa Beeley, Tulsi Gabbard And Elizabeth Kucinich.

By Jerry Alatalo

World Map1Alphabet Amnesty International (AI) released a controversial report recently on alleged horrors enacted in Syrian prisons which has generated profound debate, uncertainty and emotions. Persons going to YouTube and typing “Amnesty International Syria” will find the story was aired by virtually the entire world’s media outlets, with the greatest percentage presenting AI’s report as accurate and legitimate. Going to various reports and looking at their “thumbs up” and “thumbs down” statistics along with reading comments shows a hefty disagreement among viewers, where it looks like 2/3 of respondents express negative perceptions of AI’s report. In other words, most people are highly skeptical and don’t believe the report is honest.

It is perhaps impossible to convey how important it is to resolve whether Amnesty International’s report is “fake news” or based on reality. The report, obviously and fundamentally, is either accurate or it isn’t – but any and all questions about its veracity must become answered and/or resolved. The most worrying aspect of this report comes to the forefront when considering the possibility that those who created it, knowing they were making war propaganda, had the motive of manipulating global public opinion into acceptance of military escalation in Syria.

Military escalation in Syria would have dire consequences which most sane, reasonable, peace-loving people find utterly undesirable, even unthinkable, and for that reason one prays the report is proven fake. The calls for Amnesty International to provide publicly the evidence they profess to have, or don’t have, will grow more intense as days pass, still it is only logical to ask AI for any and all evidence when they make such important and hugely consequential claims.

Millions of people worldwide are familiar with the television network Free Speech TV, its program “Democracy Now”, and the long-time hostess of that program Amy Goodman. Besides attempting to increase awareness of the controversy surrounding AI’s Syria prison report, a major focus here is pushing for an organized internet-based campaign to force Amy Goodman to interview four women who have different perspectives with regard to Syria: independent journalists Eva Bartlett and Vanessa Beeley, Hawaii Congresswoman Tulsi Gabbard, and Elizabeth Kucinich, the wife of former Ohio Congressman Dennis Kucinich. All of these women have traveled to Syria and talked to a wide range of Syria’s people.

Ms. Goodman presented the Amnesty International report along with interviewing AI officials in recent days, and clearly shared with her millions of viewers worldwide that she, Ms. Goodman, believes the report is true. What we are proposing – urging – here is a worldwide campaign joined by millions who feel the AI report is war propaganda and extremely dangerous if left unchallenged, demanding Ms. Goodman interview the four respected woman named, to get to the absolute truth of the matter.

A gentleman and political scientist from Syria has responded to Amnesty International’s report by pointing out clear deficiencies in various parts of the content. Below one finds a video on this matter he produced and posted at his YouTube channel – “Syriana Analysis”. In it he describes how AI failed to double-check information and facts, and asserts AI is doubling as a propaganda tool for Western powers seeking “humanitarian” intervention in Syria.

He states, “Its (AI) report cannot be defined as an objective investigation”.

He goes on to say, “Most of the witnesses are identified as opposition figures and former officials who don’t live in Syria”. He points out that in the report there is not one instance of providing a “divergent point of view”, that AI’s numbers are not documented in lists or exhibits, and those numbers are “at best wild guesses”. He then shares that no details were provided about the persons killed, alleged by AI in an estimated number of from 5,000-13,000.

In response to AI claims of extrajudicial executions, he shows that the report itself refutes that claim; the report describes military judicial procedures and rules, and the necessary higher-up approvals of judgments. Further on he states, “The report doesn’t even meet the lowest mark of scientific or legal validity. It’s a pure biased propaganda”.

Please think about taking good action and contacting Amy Goodman via email, at “Democracy Now” YouTube channel or website, through discussions with family and friends, on Facebook, Twitter, etc., with personal blog posts, sharing this information, or any possible path(s) – and demanding she conduct the suggested interviews. In doing so – and if successful, the truth becomes known – you might be making a much, much larger contribution to peace in Syria and the world than you’ll ever know. Thank you.

World peace is possible.

    1. Marley,
      Yes, the history of Syria shows the people there have endured more than their share of hardships. The six years of war they have been criminally subjected to was totally unnecessary, and tears one’s heart out to observe. Thanks for visiting and sharing your thoughts. Peace. Jerry

  1. Both Amnesty International and Democracy Now have a long history of receiving funding from CIA-funded pass through foundations. This CIA-linked money profoundly effects Democracy Now’s editorial policies – you will never hear her report on US government involvement in the JFK, RFK or MLK assassination – nor on the 911-Truth movement.

    1. Stuart,
      How are you. One gets the feeling you don’t feel very optimistic of the chances the four women will be interviewed by Ms. Goodman any times soon. Good points on Democracy Now never talking about the govt.s murders of JFK, RFK, MLK, 9/11… The program will not touch those with the proverbial ten foot pole; they are radioactive. Add to those – what could be described as the greatest covered up state crimes in recent history – this Amnesty propaganda covering up state sponsorship of terrorism, and Ms. Goodman has done a very good job of taking part in the continuing coverup(s). A good job, Amy, indeed. Maybe I missed it, but has any reporting by Amy Goodman and Democracy Now led to the arrest and prosecution of anyone? Thanks.

        1. DN, Goodman, and other gatekeepers report the facts up until a “red line”, the crossing of which represents entering the region of “real”, and where those in power will not allow entrance – lest one is willing to sacrifice their very life. The paradox.
