U.S. intelligence apprehends deterioration of situation in Caucasus2010-03-25 12:04
U.S intelligence believes that provocative actions like the "special report" of Imedi TV channel on alleged Russian invasion can set up in flames the real conflict in Caucasus.gt-en-newsitem-inside
At yesterday's briefing for foreign journalists in Washington, Matthew Burrows, the head of the Counselor to the National Intelligence Council said the U.S really had concern over the tensions in Caucasus.
When asked, whether the NIC delivers its callings to the foreign partners and whether it has foreign offices, the expert gave no direct answer. Instead he noted the functional differences between intelligence agents and diplomats, and said that diplomatic efforts with partners in the region are the business of the Department of State - ITAR TASS.
The aforesaid "special report" included a video on alleged invasion of Russian troops and death of President Saakashvili. It stirred a panic all around Georgia. Yet it turned out to be an "innocent" attempt to "show" the scenario of possible events in case the "Georgian society won't be consolidated against the Russian plan." On the order of President Mikheil Saakashvili, his press secretary Manjgaladze arrived in the studio and calmed down the people, saying such a turn of events can't happen in Georgia at the present-day stage.
The Imedi channel apologized to the audience for the clip's being an "imitation" and its stirring the society.
Opposition is sure the fake clip was agreed with the head of state and was a "brainwashing" for the audience.
