Lassana Diarra is totally not a terrorist

Lassana Diarra revealed to the world this week that is not in fact a jihadist in the Syria war despite rumours on the internet saying he is.  I love the internet

The Telegraph says:
The Lokomotiv Moscow midfielder "denies in the most formal, the most categoric, the most absolute fashion that he has gone to Syria," said Diarra's lawyer Eric Dupond Moretti.
"He has never set foot in Syria. It's absurd. He is not a jihadist, he is a footballer with Lokomotiv Moscow," the lawyer added.
But that's exactly what a jihadist in the Syrian war would say so I'm not convinced.  This is like that time my girlfriend promised she'd never leave me but then someone ran her over in a bus and I had to get a new girlfriend.  So inconvenient :(
