"Amateur" blogger in Britain documents major arms trafficking in Syria against rebels


A British “Mr. Mom” blogger has documented a lot of arms trafficking to the government of Syria, according to a CMM story here
  
The blogger is Elliott Higgins, and he calls his blog “Brown Moses”.


The link for the blog (on “Blogger”) is here. Higgins indicates that he does take care with fact-checking before he publishes. 
   
This particular story does show the value of “blogger journalism”, a topic on my own main “BillBoushka” blog.  
   
Apparently he does all his research at home in Britain.  This is certainly what one calls a “niche blog”.
