I am not too surprised by what the "rebels" have been doing, they definitely are high up on the brutality rankings, What I find surprising is that none of the major news papers/outlets, the BBC, NY Times, Washington Post are carrying this story. Not even the usually sensationalist New York Post. The only big news outlet carrying the story is the Daily Mail in the UK and the local NY Daily News. (See Bing search on Jul 1st).
|John McCain with Syrian "rebels"|
So far not a comment on the beheading by the major supporters, John Kerry, John McCain, Obama, and David Cameron.
What do our Sri Lankan journalists think of this. So far not a word by the those who have issues with media censorship.
Update: The BBC has just reported the incident. However, it can only be found by a search, it is not listed on the front page for the Mid-east. Note the wording, nothing like brutal etc, is used. Compare that to a report on police brutality in Sri Lanka.
