Pentagon pushes likely forged document to show Islamic State in “desperation” mode and “beginning to feel the pressure”: "The document, however, appears to be a forgery, as there are factual, chronological, and locational issues with the flier.
For one, the memo is dated 1436. The current Islamic year is 1437.
Secondly, the document is signed by the Islamic State’s “Ninawa Province.” But Fallujah is not located in Ninawa Province. Fallujah lies in Anbar Province.
It also requests that Islamic State fighters send execution videos to Al Arabiya (headquartered in Saudi Arabia) and Al Jazeera (headquartered in Qatar), the two predominant Sunni networks in the Middle East. Yet, Islamic State has its own sophisticated media presence.
There are other more subtle errors in the Arabic language version, which has been pointed out by social media users in response to the Pentagon spokesman’s post.
Breitbart News has found that the memo is at least over two months old, as it was posted by an Iraqi man on social media on October 16.
Islamic State supporters and others have taken to Twitter, highlighting the spokesman’s tweet and citing it as proof that the U.S. government is not to be trusted"
