John Cantlie – ‘Lend me your ears’- an Introduction
John Cantlie video “Lend me your ears” 18th September 2014
In the haunting video, John Cantlie, a former war photographer and correspondent for The Sunday Times, The Sun and The Sunday Telegraph, speaks to the camera from behind a table in a darkened room,
The shocking clip shows Mr Cantlie saying he was ‘abandoned’ by the British government and describes how, in a series of videos, he will seek to dispel ‘manipulated truths’ told by the Western media.
‘I know what you’re thinking. You’re thinking ‘he’s only doing this because he’s a prisoner – he’s got a gun at his head and he’s being forced to do this,” he says.
‘Well, I am a prisoner – that I cannot deny – but seeing as I’ve been abandoned by my government and my fate now lies in the hands of the Islamic State, I have nothing to lose.’
‘Over the next few programmes, I am going to show you the truth as the Western media tries to drag the public back to the abyss of another war with the Islamic State,’ he says.
