Marie Colvin Story




After documentaries on her life, finally a Film has been made and soon to be released here.... on the reporter Marie Colvin and her life. It will also be showing her targeted murder by the Syrian State, for her courageous reporting of the truth on Atrocities perpetrated by the Assad Regime on his own people and sanctioned by their sponsors Russia.

The film is called "A Private War" which drops the scales from people's eyes on the supposed Glamorous life of women reporters.

Marie after having survived an injury crossing the front line in Sri Lankan conflict resulting in the loss of an eye, she later went on to cheat death and report on conflicts in Lebanon, Chechnya and Kosovo before going on to assignment in Syria.

She wasn't the type of reporter that would report on conflicts from neighbouring countries but wanted to be in the thick of it... nor was she the amongst the fading hacks that accept Assad hospitality and embed with the regimes military soaking up the bias that brings about, or being fed the Assad line and shown what the regime wants seen, in attempts to feed the international community with misinformation ( sometimes even reposted on TLF ) as the truth, relying on these tainted fading hacks past reputations on reporting the truth .

The Center for Justice & Accountability has investigated her death Marie and took the case to law in a civil case brought by her sister and it was proven she was deliberately assassinated by Syrian military and intelligence forces. Her murder was part of a broader conspiracy to neutralize Syrian and foreign media through violence.

On February 21, 2012, as Marie was giving her interview report to CNN, Syrian intelligence was closing in. Evidence obtained by CJA reveals that the Assad Regime intercepted her broadcasts, confirmed her location through an informant, and then launched a targeted, fatal, rocket attack killing Marie. British photographer, Paul Conroy and Syrian interpreter, Wael al-Omar plus French journalist Edith Bouvier were all gravely injured.

I look forward to seeing the film just about to be released.

Journalists around the world even in Turkey are having a bad time not only in reporting the truth but some in fear of their life or imprisonment ...and have to compete with state controlled media and the rise of the supposedly alternative media (good in some aspects) but easily manipulated by some with an agenda, having not to verify reports, or meet any reporting standards.

Brave lady. Also try Christina Lambe who has written a book 'Farewell to Kabul' among others, about her journalistic exploits.
