This news of course is not true. It was published on Empirenews.net, a satirical news website. Unfortunately, the ElMarada website didn’t let that stop them from publishing a translated version of the story under the name “Al Anba2″ (which is unclear if they man the newspaper in Lebanon, or an “Anba2″ category on their website).
Anyway, the really funny part is people’s reactions. Those with enough wit to remember to Google first, made loads of funny and politically-charged rebukes at this blooper, but, funnier still were the people who bought it, like this person here:
It roughly translates to: “Of course the terrorist and chief of the gangs of death is a drug dealer. This is nothing new for us, but where is his stupid American people?”
This reminds me of the time when Iranian media thought a The Onion piece claiming Ahmadinejad’s approval rates in the US were higher than Obama’s, was true, and ran with it very seriously =P
Websites like Elmarada.org, Tayyar.org, Kataeb.org, Lebanese-Forces.com and others are horrible at what they’re supposed to do: offer news. Instead, they’re amazing at publishing crap, stealing content without proper annotations and other juvenile, typical Lebanese politics idiocies.
