Video Used By ABC News To Show War Crimes By Turkish-Backed Forces Against The Kurds Is A Fake

Washington Examiner: ABC News ‘slaughter in Syria’ footage appears to come from a Kentucky gun range

Are you distrustful of the coverage of what is happening now in northern Syria between the Kurds and the Turkish army? You have good reason to be.

ABC aired supposedly shocking footage Monday morning purporting to be from the frontline battle between the Syrian Kurds and the invading Turks. The only problem is the footage appears to come from a nighttime demonstration at the Knob Creek Gun Range in West Point, Kentucky.

After seeing a comment from Wojciech Pawelczyk, I began making some calls. As of this writing, it appears that this video is a hoax, and ABC has pulled it down.

"We are still investigating," a representative for the gun range told the Washington Examiner Monday, adding the images aired by ABC "looks to be" from the Kentucky property.

"As of right now," the spokesperson added, "it seems to be our footage."

A spokesperson for ABC conceded it made a big mistake.

Question is how did this get into ABC's hands? Why didn't they question all the little white lights of the "Turkish" troops?

These news outfits are becoming DANGEROUS.

Impressive demonstration though. Very nice. I understand why some dimz are so against firearms; they picture themselves on the receiving end after another display of legislation based upon emotions and ignorance.

ABC must get their news editors from the nearest community college.

No ABC has 4 year grads and that is the sad part. They would have been better off and smarter of they had started to work as high school grads and had never seen college.

This is a nice fake news piece but where are the real news stories on this blog about what the Turks and their allies are really doing to the Kurds? There is plenty of real footage and it should be shown.
