The truth about Idlib in Syria: it is al-Qaeda’s largest safe haven in the world


I picked this up from a share of Tulsi Gabbard Locals that had the title The truth about Idlib in Syria: it is al-Qaeda’s largest safe haven in the world. I have no idea how or if this is really connected to Tulsi Gabbard.

The featured YouTube video is Former Hostage of Al Qaeda in Syria Rejects Jolani’s PBS Makeover: “They Are Lunatics with Guns”.

To discuss this and more, Rania Khalek is joined by Theo Padnos, who was held as a hostage of Jabhat Al Nusra for two years, enduring day after day of torture and getting unique insight into the group. He’s also the author of the recently published book Blindfold: A Memoir of Capture, Torture, and Enlightenment.


Of course I have no idea where the truth lies in any of this. If I believe any of this, it is the fact that you can be an eyewitness to something and still not understand what you are seeing.

So how can I even judge this video?
