3-Year Anniversary of The Sydney Hostage Siege AND of The #IllRideWithYou HOAX

The gunman’s motives are unclear

Oh how time flies, but it is already the third-anniversary of the Sydney Hostage Siege of 2017 and one of the greatest journalistic frauds since, well, at least a few weeks. The west has an unreliable news media. It’s broken. It is filled with liars and that broke it.

The #IllRideWithYou hoax was pushed hard by the BBC but it originally began as a tweet by Rachael Jacobs, a lecturer at Australia Catholic University, that was picked up by Aussie media and then the BBC.

At this point I saw a woman on the train start to fiddle with her headscarf.

Confession time. In my Facebook status, I editorialised. She wasn’t sitting next to me. She was a bit away, towards the other end of the carriage. Like most people she had been looking at her phone, then slowly started to unpin her scarf.

Tears sprang to my eyes and I was struck by feelings of anger, sadness and bitterness. It was in this mindset that I punched the first status update into my phone, hoping my friends would take a moment to think about the victims of the siege who were not in the cafe.

I spent the rest of the journey staring—rudely—at the back of her uncovered head. I wanted to talk to her, but had no idea what to say. Anything that came to mind seemed tokenistic and patronising. She might not even be Muslim or she could have just been warm! Besides, I was in the “quiet carriage” where even conversation is banned.

By sheer fluke, we got off at the same station, and some part of me decided saying something would be a good thing. Rather than quiz her about her choice of clothing, I thought if I simply offered to walk her to her destination, it might help.

It’s hard to describe the moment when humans, and complete strangers, have a conversation with no words. I wanted to tell her I was sorry for so many things—for overstepping the mark, for making assumptions about a complete stranger and for belonging to a culture where racism was part of her everyday experience.

But none of those words came out, and our near silent encounter was over in a moment.

The entire story was essentially a figment of Jacobs’ imagination. But that imaginary event became the conversation in the West, rather than an Islamist taking over a café and murdering two people.

Yeah, that’s what happens when you lie. Your Twitter feed goes silent for 3-whole-years!

The Curious Case of 1993 WTC Bomber Abdul Rahman Yasin عبد الرحمن يس

Wikipedia is usually a cesspool of misinformation and biased half-truths but occasionally you will stumble across something really interesting that everyone else has overlooked or no one else seems to care about. I must say this entry is the darnedest thing.

We had a confessed bomber in custody, who admitted his role, fingered all the other suspects, and… the FBI kicks him loose! Then he immediately flies BACK to Iraq to disappear for a decade. Then, in the aftermath of 9/11/2001 a very scared, and compliant Iraqi government (still headed by Saddam Hussein) picks him up and attempts to hand him over to the Americans in a gesture of goodwill. The Americans will not give the Iraqis a receipt for custody (for some unknown reason) and so after a few months, and an impending war, the Iraqis seemed to have kicked him loose too or he just walked out of prison after the 2003 invasion. He promptly disappears, again, and he hasn’t been seen since.

If you have a theory as to if this was outright incompetency or a deliberate collusion with foreign terrorists, I’d love to hear your theory.

The following is a is a summarized rip and paste from Wikipedia. I reproduce it here in the event this article gets vandalized, dissapeared or otherwise changed. Link to the Indy Star from 2001

Abdul Rahman Yasin (Arabic: عبد الرحمن يس ‎; born April 10, 1960) is an American fugitive who helped make the bombs used in the 1993 World Trade Center bombing attack. Yasin is of Iraqi heritage and grew up in Baghdad. He has been characterized in the American media as “the only participant in the first attempt to blow up the World Trade Center in 1993 who was never caught.” Yasin’s whereabouts remain unknown.

In 1992, Yasin was able to use his American birth citizenship to obtain a US passport and thus enter the United States.
Recruited by Ramzi Yousef, he had acid burns on his legs from bomb chemicals.
Soon following investigation of the attack on February 26, 1993, Yasin was picked up by the FBI on March 4, 1993, the same day as the arrest of Mohammed A. Salameh, in a sweep of sites associated with Salameh. Yasin was found in the apartment in Jersey City, New Jersey, that he was sharing with his mother.
Yasin was taken to New Jersey FBI headquarters in Newark, where he was reportedly very cooperative. Agents had Yasin retrace where and how the WTC bomb had been built in New York and New Jersey.
Yasin said he was released after giving agents names and addresses, and went home to Iraq.

58 People Were Killed In Las Vegas, We Still Don’t Know Why Or How, And Nobody Cares

I am going to break the rules of the Internet Hot Take Industry and write about an old story that nobody cares about anymore. We have gone on to other topics, and then other topics, and then other topics, and other topics, etc. The news cycle moves at the speed of sound. Events from last week are a distant memory and news from October may as well have occurred during the Cretaceous Period.

Still, I can’t help but recall, ever so faintly, that little thing known at the time as the worst mass shooting in American history. If memory serves, a wealthy 64-year-old gambler named Stephen Paddock murdered 58 people and injured hundreds from the window of his luxury hotel room. In the days after the slaughter, nobody could figure out why he did it, or how he managed to pull it off. So, we all kind of shrugged our shoulders and moved on. The questions were never answered.
