The peculiar journalism of Vanessa Beeley

Vanessa Beeley reports that 14 US coalition military officers were captured yesterday in an east Aleppo bunker by Syrian special forces. The source she cites for the report is the Voltaire Network, a libertarian cult based in Paris, even though she is in east Aleppo with the Syrian Army.

Then she says that Fares Shehabi, the Assad official for Aleppo who she is hanging with in restaurants, is her second source when he posted the names & countries of the 14 officers on Twitter. Why didn’t he just tell her all that straight from the horse’s mouth, so to speak? Why did she have to get it from goofballs in Paris & off of Twitter?
