It's all in the name

The elected Syrian government is "the regime" but those that lead marauding headchoppers with kalashnikovs are 'officials.

Spokesman? Defense Minister? CNN brands ISIS terrorists as ‘officials’

24 November, 2015

CNN has come out with a new definition of Islamic State leaders.

Kalashnikov-wielding militants who cut off captives' heads, trade slaves and whose hate speeches promise jihad against the whole world are now called “officials”, according to the network.

US intensifies search for ISIS officials,” says an on-screen title of the report by CNN's Barbara Starr released on Monday. The first shot in the report shows us Abu Bakr al-Baghdadi, the Islamic State (IS, formerly ISIS/ISIL) leader who has recently ordered attacks on the anti-IS coalition. He is apparently the main IS official, according to CNN.

However, al-Baghdadi is not the only IS terrorist who has been granted “official” status. CNN managed to find “six other senior IS officials” among the extremists.

CNN provided a photo of another Islamic State “official” - Abu Mohammad al-Adnani, a militant photographed with a Kalashnikov. According to the network, this “official” and the “key man” may be directing IS attacks in Iraq and Syria.
