Syrian Human Rights Source Widely Cited by BCC, CNN, Guardian, etc, is ... Ahem ... a Fraud (Video)

RT nails this one with more brilliant work from investigative reporter extraordinaire, Nimrod Kamer.  

We've carried his work before, for example, here, where he makes a fool of US Ukraine ambassador, Geoffrey Pyatt.

Oh dear mainstream media, this is embarrassing...

In this adventure, Nimrod tries to track down the "Syrian Observatory for Human Rights", who it turns out is just one person, a Syrian immigrant, a Mr. Rami Rahman, who seems to hate Assad, working from his run-down house in provincial England.

Mr. Rahman refuses to talk to Kamer, appear on camera, or come to the door of his house.  Funny.
