To the 5 W & 1 H Folks:
The internet is an amazing thing. Connections, connections, connections. JK, I’m posting this for a reason and it’s not for credit actually. I just want this connection out there – and if anyone can come up with an earlier blog post or news report on Ms O’Bagy’s Syrian Emergency Task Force position, please post it. I wrote my post on September 3, 2013, 8:56 am. I mentioned my post on The Diplomad 2.0 blog, September 3, 2013m, 10:03am, which certainly gets more traffic than my obscure backwoods blog. After I posted my comment on Diplomad’s blog other journalists ran with this story. There’s a lot of ego among you, but very little integrity.
I’ve tried since 1999 to get someone, anyone actually, to take my story, Messages of mhere (located in the archives section) seriously – so far, no takers. I followed advice and used pseudonyms in my story. I wrote it with a light touch, but the story itself is the truth. All these years of attempting to get someone to listen to my story, well, truth, sure seems a rare commodity. Most of the people in this story would recognize themselves, if, someone with the right connections investigated this. It shouldn’t be this hard to get someone to listen to you in America.
