British Reports of Drone Success: Fact or Fiction?
Two British newspapers report that the Hizbullah drone spied on strategic sites, but the authors are an anti-Israeli journalist and a fiction writer.
The report in the London Sunday Times today contained essentially the same material that was posted last week in the London Telegraph by blogger Jake Wallis Simons, whose credentials are listed as a ”Telegraph features writer, a novelist, and a broadcaster for BBC Radio 4. His novels include…a thriller about the Mossad which he wrote under the name Jake Simons.”
