Bloggers Expose Major MSM Mistake: "Atwar Bahjat Execution Video" Is F A K E

To clarify:

Yes, Atwar Bahjat was murdered in a cowardly and barbaric fashion by monsters.

Yes, the video of a jihadi victim being beheaded now being circulated by jihadist websites and reported on by the MSM (including the Sunday Times of London) is itself quite real.

But the latter does not depict the execution of Atwar Bahjat.

As Jawa reports, it's actually video of another jihadist murder, that of a Nepalese man, from 2004.

Oh, there are multiple levels of painstaking editorial fact-checking in the media, to be sure.

Just not in the mainstream media.
