ok cnn, take a bunch of cobbled up videos and claim whatever you want. seems like if they didn't want you there they would just tell you to catch the next train out of dodge. anyways, truth of not, i wouldn't believe a word of anything cnn broadcasts. why isn't cnn talking about the country with 5% of the worlds population and 25% of the worlds prisoners, that being the u.s.a. of course? people must never forget that cnn's main job is to demonize countries and spew propaganda against nations the u.s. government says are our enemies when in reality they are only enemies of american economic interests such as oil and telecommunications.
