The British Daily Telegraph reports today that Wikileaks documents show the U.S. State Department ordered spying on the sons of the King of Bahrain. Information was requested as to their drug or alcohol use and if they have any Shia’ Muslim friends. Why? To see how strictly Sunni Islamic they really are? Is it the need to find a “moderate” sock puppet? The motive remains a mystery.
Government funded front group NGO’s are reporting unrest in areas not collaborated by independent media. One example is so-called “Freedom Watch,” reporting 1,500 protesters against the Interior Ministry in Damascus. If true, one would expect the Jerusalem Post or Haaretz to report it. If true, one would expect the Latakia Alawite clique to respond as they did in Hama without mercy against the Muslim Brotherhood.
