Busted: Syrian Regime’s US Plane Story Is a Hoax – Photo Is From 2002

The Syrian News Agency (SANA) accused the United States of sending a plane loaded with weapons to Jordan for the Syrian opposition.

SANA even included a photo of the plane.

From the article:

Jordanian news and press sources revealed that a US airplane, loaded with fatal weapons, landed in al-Mafraq airport in Jordan to deliver the weapons to the armed terrorist groups in Syria.

Al-Wahda news network quoted Jordanian sources as saying that a US aircraft, loaded with weapons arrived in al-Mafraq airport to hand over these weapons to the armed terrorist groups in Syria, referring to the graduation of a new batch of 1500 gunmen, of al-Zaatari camp residents, who were trained for fighting and using weapons to join nearly 50000 others existing in Syria.

There’s only one problem – The photo was faked.
The photo was actually taken at an airshow in 2002.

And the original photo was taken in Wisconsin – Not Jordan.
