(KurtNimmo) – IDF Retracts Claim al-Qaeda was on Flotilla, Corporate Media Silent

Israel has retracted its absurd claim that al-Qaeda was involved in the Gaza aid flotilla. But don’t expect the corporate media to report this. From Democracy Now:

The Israeli military, meanwhile, has been forced to retract its claim that passengers aboard the flotilla were agents of al-Qaeda. An Israel Defense Forces press release sent out two days after the assault says approximately forty flotilla passengers “are mercenaries belonging to the Al Qaeda terror organization.” The independent journalist Max Blumenthal says both he and an Israeli colleague asked the Israeli military press office to substantiate its claim. No evidence was provided, and one day later the press released was modified. The original headline was changed from “Attackers of the IDF Soldiers Found to be Al Qaeda Mercenaries” to “Attackers of the IDF Soldiers Found Without Identification Papers.” Commenting on the retraction, Blumenthal writes, “The more Israel’s claims about the flotilla’s terrorist links are challenged, the more they fall apart.”

Indeed, the fairy tale may fall apart, but that does not mean the pro-Israeli corporate media has to report the truth. – Source: Infowars
