He said: “I have watched the so called new report released by the CNN and it says nothing new. It didn’t show anything we haven’t seen or known. It is a rehash of the same things we know.
“Where are the bodies if indeed there was a massacre? Only an answer to that question will be new evidence. If anything at all, this latest report shows that CNN is grasping at straws out of sheer desperation.”
