With a face good enough for the movies, this ‘terrorist’ creation is trotted out by the media – only to be killed off for the second time. Straight from central casting, she does selfies to keep her fan base happy. This is just as believable as Bin Laden dying a dozen times in a single decade. This time did this person even exist, you wonder, except as a media creation? Bin Laden was a real person, even if his postumous career was more significant than his living one.
The legendary White Widow is dead or so we are told by the Daily Mail the Murdoch press ITN and perhaps even the Foreign Office rumour mill.
Note the DM reference to the source “Regnum news agency in Moscow.”.
Upon checking we find the website of Regnum has not published a new article since 10/03/2012 see homepage. screenshot attached. Notably the Regnum website is very slow to load indicating either high network traffic or more likely for an out of date news feed a tin pot single PC webserver in a dingy office using a low bandwidth connection.
Using the sites internal search facility we are unable to find any trace of “White Widow” or “Lewthwaite”.
“A source at the UK’s foreign office told ITV News that “we are aware of reports that Samantha Lewthwaite has been killed in Ukraine”.
Perhaps the Daily Mail & co are making things up.
