ASSAD’S BODY LANGUAGE AND VOICE ON BBC IN RESPONSE TO NOT HAVING CHEMICAL WEAPONS SHOWS HIS MANY SIGNALS OF DECEPTION

Screen Shot 2017-04-14 at 3.18.18 PM.pngWhen someone begins a statement with “So” it is not a got sign in the telling the truth department.  His looking down is also a red flag in terms of being honest and forthright.

Syrian President Bashar al-Assad  says “we don’t have any chemical weapons” and says this in a monotone with a glottal fry as he dies off at the end of his statement which is usually a major signal of deception,

He then gets really breathy and his breathing changes as he says “we gave up our arsenal two years ago.”. This is also a signal of deception in most cases. As he says this he looks down and you can see the visible change in his respiration as he uses more upper chest breathing.

He says even if r had them we wouldn’t use them ( said in an unemotional montone) , he then says UH ( another signal of deception in this contexts) as he says he have never used UH our chemical arsenal in our history. His head is cocked to the side as you see here which is also often  signal of deception considering the context. His voice is breathy and waivering and not solid as one’s voice would be if they were being forthright in denying chemical attacks.

When asked by the interviewer what happened, he doesn’t make sense. He says “as I said” but he didn’t say .. Then he blames it on Al Qaeda.

With head still cocked to the side and monotone low intensity and low volume speech pattern, he covers himself for liable as he says It is our impression that the West – the United States is hand and glove with the terrorists. As he says this there is a mono-expression which means no emotion and no reaction on his face. And then he raises his eyebrows which means he is doubting what he has just said which is a signal of deception

He continues to die off at the end of his sentences and is barely audible which is yet another signal of deception. He continues to cover himself by saying “that is what we believe .” He doesnt accuse, he just gives his opinion so legally he can’t get into hot water.

He says that the US made this up as a pretext and “that is what ‘we” believe.” He says it is propaganda and thereas no investigation. As he says this he is still monototne and dies off at end.

Now look at his body language,turned inward His  toes  are turned inward whichin dicates insecurity on his part which is also reflected in his tone and voice pattern and his fingers are interlocked as he gestures.

Screen Shot 2017-04-14 at 4.34.40 PM.png

You also see a shoulder shrug which further indicates deceptive movement as he continues to point the finger at Al Qaeda.And he begins his next statement with a long EHHHHH sound which does not do much for his credibility in my view.

“About the attack it is not clear whether it happened or not”, says Asad. He dies off at the end as he says this which is a signal of deception.

He also shows the back of his hand as she gestures which can also bee seen as a signal of deception along with his barely audible voice which speaks volumes to me.

He then says we don’t know if it   happened or not as you  can’t tell since there are so many “fake videos” out there  on the internet now. He says they are Al Qaeda who shave their beard wore white hats and appeared as humanitarian  heroes which is not the case. As eh says this he strugs his shoulder.

He also questions of the children were really children of that area or if they were dead at all. The then asks who committed the attack if there was an attack?

The fact that he is asking questions, instead of giving answers concerns me.  When people ask a myriad of questions as opposed to giving facts, it is often suspect and leads one to believe they are not  being forthright.

He says you have no information at all as he shrugs his shoulders. Well since he is being accused, why not get some information and show proof that he didn’t do it as he said. But by asking questions and pointing the finger and speculation it makes one further dowt Assad’s veracity  of what he is saying and credibility.

At the end he gets defensive and puts his hand between his legs indicating that he is feeling vulnerable in doing this gesture. He gestures with his palms to him and that is also not a good signal as far as being truthful is concerned in my estimation.

Screen Shot 2017-04-14 at 4.49.38 PM.pngAnd finally what really makes me believe he is not being forthright is that when he is asked if he thinks this is a fabrication, looks down and shakes his head no when he should be shaking it yes as he relies, :”Definately, a 100 percent  and stammers on the words huh hundred percent. His voice and tone is also disturbing to me in that it is too monotone and he is way too inaudible

In order to get a baseline of how Assad sounded earlier in his speeches, his voice appeared strong and audible and his gestures were more formidable and forceful. So that leads me to believe he knows a lot more than he is saying in the interview to the BBC.

Body Language of the two Boston Terrorists

Image

Former Special Agent D. Vincent Sullivan who was also head of the FBI’s behavioral Analysis Program and I teamed up to write the book Body Language of Terrorists which we highly recommend especially during these days of terror. The book tells you how to recognize terrorists and those who are involved in nefarious and malicious acts.

In the book we tell you about the terrorists body language, facial language, voice patterns and speech communication patterns which are red flags that these people may be up to no good. Our research is based on countless hours of studying the body language behaviors and speech and voice patterns of numerous terrorists from Chechnya’s Doku Umarov to the 911 bombers to the homegrown terrorists, to the Underwear bomber, the Shoe Bomber, and  others to numerous to name.

For the past few days we have been doing a great deal of national  media discussing the findings in our book and analyzing the body language of these two Boston terrorists.

http://www.amazon.com/Identifying-Terrorists-Through-Language-ebook/dp/B007BQFMSG

In this blog we will share our findings about these terrorists based on the FBI’s video’s and photos of now deceased 26 year old Tamerlan  and now captured  19 year old  Dzhokhar Tsarnaev.

Image

This surveillance photo of Tamerian is very revealing. It shows that he is wearing a heavy jacket which was not weather appropriate.It was also buttoned or zipped  up when the weather  did not warrant it.  The jacket is also is oversized. You can tell by the sleeves and by the waist  that it is a bit  large for him. Oftentimes terrorists will wear bulky clothing in order to hide something like weapons. Her he is carrying the bomb backpack and he is patting his abdominal area. This is often seen when terrorists wear suicide vests, which was the case with Tamerian.

Image

Tamerian has now opened his jacket exposing his tee shirt. There seems to be a dark vest-like garment under the tee shirt which was the suicide vest as was discovered after he was killed by police in a shootout. He is trying to be inconspicuous and also disguise his identity with sunglasses and with the bill of his hat covering his face.

His brother Dzhokhar  is seen following him wearing a white hat with the bill in back, exposing his facial identity, He is also clutching his mid section and continued to do so throughout his walking in back of his brother. Terrorists have often been seen clutching their mid sections when they are trying to conceal a weapon, which was the case with Dzhokhar.

Note that these two terrorists are walking single file. This behavior was also seen with the 911 terrorists. They do this to disguise the fact that they are together but their single file approach is actually a red flag that they are indeed together.

Numbness, Anger, Fear and Anxiety are the 4 types of emotions which are often exhibited on terrorist’s faces.  Numbness may be due to drugs as was the case with the Mumbai  terrorists. Anxiety can also occur in their body language manifested by excess movements of the arms and legs and rapid speech patterns.

Image

Gilbert Junior who is an auto body repairman reported to the press that Tamerian was very agitated and anxious as he demanded to have his car back even though the work on it wasn’t finished. He remarked that his anxiety displayed in his body movements  were in marked contrast to his demeanor at other times.

Image

When the 19 year old brother in the white cap walks in back of his older brother you see him looking to the right and then  to the left as though he is concerned about anyone noticing him. This  behavior is often seen in terrorists.

ImageThe FBI Photos of these two brothers reveal facial nuances which many terrorists can exhibit. Once again we see the slack jaw  and slightly opened mouth of Tamerian now wearing a black hat and sunglasses to disguise and hide  his appearance . Tis facial expression may also indicate the fear he is experiencing as his autonomic nervous system has taken over his body functions.

In contrast there is a  mask-like smile on the face of his brother Dzhokhar. We saw a similiar facial expression on the Mumbai bombers. Dzhokhar has no concern about disguising himself as he wears his cap backwards and weears no sunglasses. Perhaps there is some arrogance displayed by this behavior. Perhaps he believes at this point  he will not get caught.

There have been many comments from family members and friends  that these two young men were very bright an they were good boys. Those who knew the young men were shocked that they could ever be involved in such a nefarious act. But this is not at all surprising. There were many young Somalian men in their late teens in Minnesota who were  excellent  students and who were headed to Ivy league schools upon graduating from high schools. But they took a trip to a Jihadist training camp after being recruited and brainwashed and they returned to the US with the intention of committing acts of terror.

Thank goodness Anwar Alawaki is no longer alive as he was one of the top recruiters of young men to encourage them to carry out  exactly the same acts that these two Boston terrorists did.But there are other  Alawakai type recruiters who prey on confused young men like Tamerian and Djhokher.

It was revealed by Tarian’s aunt that he dropped out of school. Obviously his boxing career wasn’t doing as well as he expected . He committed a huge sin for a Muslim man as he had premarital sex and a baby , now age 3, with his Portuguese girlfriend . He was conflicted and lived a conflicted life. So he sought refuge in Al Qaeda which fueled his hatred towards a country and it’s people that gave him every opportunity for freedom and to make  a success out of his life.  Now he has no life. he is dead.

WARNING – GRUESOME PHOTO:

While this photo shows  gruesome body language , it shows the brutal  shocking  reality of what can happen to  someone who becomes a terrorist.  In our view, all  potential terrorists need to see what can happen to them if they succumb to the influence of others and try to carry out terrorist acts. There is no place in heaven for them and they will never  meet up with the 72 virgins. There is only agonizing pain and death as it was for the  once promising Tamerian. Now his body language shows the horror of his being a lifeless corpse riddled with bullet holes and livor mortis as his blood poured to the surface of his skin.

Screen Shot 2013-04-20 at 4.54.20 AM

His 19 year old brother  was also riddled with bullets. This once promising student who wanted to be a doctor is now being treated by doctors in an attempt to save his life so that he can provide more information about who was behind this bombing tragedy.

Who knows how he will emerge from his surgeries. He will have a lifetime of  pain and torture from his injuries and from his upcoming trials. Massachusetts  does not have the death penalty. So at 19 he will never again see the light of day. He will never experience the freedom that this country offered him. He will never live his dream of becoming a doctor.Even though he may still be breathing, his young life has ended  just like  his older brother’ s life has ended.
