The “face” of Syrian opposition. For chief consumption in the West. The US propaganda book calls for “character assassination” of the intended target prior to physical elimination (in this case military assault, as in Libya, Iraq, etc.).

Accusations that the Syrian government is either wholly or mainly responsible for breaches of the United Nations’ ceasefire are meant to provide a pretext for military intervention by the imperialist powers and their proxies.
The US and European media, meanwhile, is acting as a barely concealed propaganda instrument tasked with preparing public opinion for the latest criminal adventure in the Middle East—a war for regime change in Syria to follow those waged in Libya, Iraq and Afghanistan.
