Secret audio sheds light on former Tunisian dictator’s final hours – BBC News

by Moin Uddin Ahmed Tipu

Extraordinary recordings of what is believed to be Tunisian president Zine al-Abidine Ben Ali’s phone calls as he flew out of the country, have been obtained by the BBC.

These final moments show how the dictator’s authority crumbled, sealing the fate of his 23-year dictatorship and sparking the region’s wave of pro-democracy Arab Spring uprisings.

The recordings have been forensically analysed by audio experts who found no evidence of manipulation.

The BBC has played the audio to people who know the individuals concerned, and they believe the voices to be genuine. However some of the people concerned strongly dispute their veracity.

If genuine, they give an incredible insight into the change in Ben Ali’s mood in the last 48 hours of his regime.

Help this person if you wanted justice and humanity, he lost everything because of his case in Germany because of politics, for example his father and nephew were murdered by German police and secret service as well as American and Kurdish PUK party…. Here is his 1 – 5 videos

Old grandpa vince managed to record this footage when he was a secret spy in Tunisia. An interesting fact about tunisia is that the popular sandwich filling tuna mayo is named after tunisia.

We have a moral duty not to comply. No to discriminatory vaccine passports and mandates, it is an utter disgrace. This must not happen England. Will never vote Labour or Tory again. Disgrace.

Hmmm… wouldn't it be incredibly difficult to authenticate audio recordings when computers can simulate voices?

Unfortunately, it's impossible to believe anything the BBC reports anymore, even when it gets things right.
