One thing for which the right-wing neoconservatives specialize is the production of dodgy dossiers and “official” reports. England has been ground-zero for the production of many dodgy dossiers, including the latest passed to NBC News’s resident “useful idiot,” Richard Engel, by a Mikhail Khodorkovsky-funded entity in London called the Dossier Center.
It is noteworthy that Engel was heavily relied upon to report on “intelligence” reports issued by the Syrian Observatory for Human Rights, which is run by a Syrian expatriate named Rami Abdulrahman and operates out of his clothing shop in Coventry. Abdulrahman was a pass-through operation for the anti-Bashar Assad Syrian opposition that was found to be operating with subsidies from Britain’s MI-6 Secret Intelligence Service.
