In August 1992, millions of people were shocked
to see photographs of a supposed Bosnian
Serb death camp.
were produced by ITN, the British TV news
giant, from footage shot by an ITN film
crew which spent a long day in
Bosnia. The film was shot in a refugee center in the
town of Trnopolje. (Pronounced Tern-op-ol-yay)
the photographs featured a tall,
emaciated man with a deformed chest,
stripped to the waist, apparently
imprisoned behind barbed wire. Do you remember
This is proved in the
Emperor's Clothes movie, Judgment! To start with, the
barbed wire was staged. As you will see in Judgment!,
the ITN film crew went
inside a storage area surrounded by a
chicken wire and barbed wire fence. They
filmed through the fence, thus creating the false impression that
the people they were filming were fenced in.
That was only their first
cute trick. Step by step, Judgment! shows how these
phony pictures were created. Judgment! is so damning
that ITN's lawyers have threatened the Internet company
that hosts the Emperor's Clothes server with a law suit
because we advertise the film on our website, www.tenc.net!
The fabricated photos were broadcast worldwide starting on
August 6th, accompanied by captions and comments
comparing Trnopolje to Nazi death camps.
August 1992, just 20 minutes after the
pictures were released, George Bush, Sr.
held a press conference at a Colorado Air
"Reports say that 20
minutes after the ITN footage was

George Bush changed his hands-off
policy and promised to 'press hard
for quick passage' of a UN Security
Council resolution authorising the
use of force in the Balkans."

is described above could not have
happened, what did happen?
One thing is definite: Mr. Bush's press conference was
planned in advance to follow soon after the TV broadcast of the phony
death camp pictures. The idea was to give ordinary
people the idea that Bush had reacted *as they would
react* to images of great suffering - by demanding
But what about the ITN
film crew? Did they really go to Bosnia, as the
Straits Times stated, in order to "investigate claims
that concentration camps had been set up"?
There are two obvious
One possibility is that
the trip was planned with the black ops people at
CIA and/or M16, the British equivalent.
That is, ITN went to Bosnia looking for film footage
that could be doctored to be used as ammunition in the
media war against the Serbs.
Or perhaps no intelligence agency was
involved in planning the visit by this
leading British news station to the
hottest trouble spot in the world. Even so, it must be
true that after the ITN people left Bosnia, ITN worked with
US and or British intelligence officers. How else
could they time the release of the pictures to coincide
with Mr. Bush's press conference?
ITN had a
prior history of aggressively anti-Serbian
coverage of the break-up of Yugoslavia.
So one might ask, why did the Bosnian
Serb leadership give ITN access to
Trnopolje and also to the detention center at Omarska?
Especially since the
Western media was already spreading
lies about these places? (For example, see Newsday, 21 July
they hoped that if the ITN reporters
could see for themselves, they would
be fair. Apparently the Serbs did not yet
understand that the attacks on them were not a mistake.
They were the target of an organized campaign of demonization.
