I have been saying this for years: that Robert Fisk is not reliable and that he is lazy and that his reports can't be believed and that he has the tendency to make things up. I did not find him credible when he wrote articles against the Syrian regime and I don't find him credible now when he writes articles that serve the purpose of the Syrian regime. But what is amusing is this: groupies of the "Syrian revolution" used to promote the articles by Fisk early in the uprising when they were very critical of the regime, and have in recent months declared him an official shabbih once his articles became sympathetic to the regime. Consistency, Mr. Watson. Consistency.
