What The Media Isn’t Telling You About The Syrian Chemical Attack :

Al Nusra Front Also Has Sarin Gas

A senior Obama administration official has told the Associated Press that there is “very little doubt” that chemical weapons were used in Syria late last week.  That senior administration official went on to claim that there is very little doubt about who used them.

Senators John McCain and Lindsey Graham are insisting that President Obama act now against the Syrian government.  In a joint statement they say:

“Using stand-off weapons, without boots on the ground, and at minimal risk to our men and women in uniform, we can significantly degrade Assad’s air power and ballistic missile capabilities and help to establish and defend safe areas on the ground”

As we reported over the weekend, the U.S. Navy has now moved warships into the Mediterranean and has readied Cruise Missiles for a possible strike against government forces.

Across the internet are dozens of videos showing civilians including men, women and children lying on floors gasping for breath, medics are struggling to save infants and across the internet pictures of rows of bodies of those who reportedly died in the attacks.  According to a report from the Local Coordination Committee, an Syrian opposition group, at least 755 people died in the attack.  Other reports are claiming much lower numbers citing “dozens” dead.  According to the Washington Post, ( http://www.washingtonpost.com/world/middle_east/un-team-headed-to-site-of-alleged-chemical-attack-comes-under-sniper-fire-turns-back/2013/08/26/5ea074c8-0e3f-11e3-8cdd-bcdc09410972_story.html )

The nonprofit Doctors Without Borders estimates that 355 people were killed and more than 3,600 were injured. If confirmed, it would be the worst chemical weapons attack since Saddam Hussein gassed more than 3,000 people in an Iraqi Kurdish village 25 years ago.

Syrian state television claims the attack came at the hand of al Qaeda backed “rebel” forces.  As we reported on Friday, the U.S., Israel and Jordan have been training rebel guerrilla fighters for months just across the border from Syria in Jordan.  According to several reports, a wave of 300 or so fighters were sent across the Syrian border on August 17th, and a second wave on August 19th.

Since the reported chemical attack last Wednesday, the Obama administration and members of Congress have been pushing the line that Syria’s President Bashar al Assad ordered the use of a chemical weapon on the outskits of Damascus.

According to CNN, one U.S. officials claims “There is nothing credible to indicate that the rebels, either the Syrian National Council or even al-Nusra Front, have used chemical weapons,” the official said. “Only the Assad regime is responsible for chemical weapons use.”

But that statement is false.  When it comes to this latest incident, at this point we don’t know what kind of chemical might have been used.  Nor do we know who used it.  Some of the claims early on from “unnamed government sources” were that sarin gas was used in that Damascus suburb.  The use of sarin gas would point toward the Assad regime, would it not?

Not necessarily.  What our national media isn’t telling you is that in May Turkish security forces found a 2kg cylinder with sarin gas after searching the homes of Syrian militants from the Al-Qaeda linked Al-Nusra Front.  Where did the sarin gas come from?  We don’t know.  But clearly, Al Nusra Front has access to sarin gas and was planning a use for it.

President Obama and his administration keep talking about “the red line” that would have to be crossed in order to bring the United States into this conflict.  That “red line” is consistently touted as responding to chemical weapons.

As we’ve reported, the U.S. is already involved:

    The way our government has been trying to get involved in Syria, they’ll find any excuse to start, yet another, illegal war.

    • usaok59

      Yeah, what’s up with that? Why are they so determined for the next world war? All I know is that whatever our government says, believe the opposite!

      • george

        It’s pretty simple: a small group of the most powerful people on
        Earth – governments and major banking corporations – have colluded to
        enslave everyone else through the use of force and systematic debt. They
        want complete control over everyone’s lives (look how much they have
        already), and anyone who challenges them dies. All the countries that
        our military has toppled in the past few years (Iraq, Afghanistan,
        Libya, etc) challenged the US in some way. Libya attempted to trade oil
        in gold rather than US dollars. Iran has refused US orders as well, so they’re next. It’s not a question of if, but when.

        brute force conquests, they have other methods: our global economic
        system is a ponzi scheme designed to suck money away from regular people
        and give it to the richest bankers.

          The war on terror is a war on countries without a Rothschilds bank.

          -Petro dollar
          -Natural resources/pipelines
          -military bases
          -Rothschild bank

          these are what the military industrial complex send Americans to die for.

    The U.S. government has been using chemical weapons against Americans for decades on end. They put them in the air, the food, the medicine and the water. They’ve conducted all kinds of chemical attacks on major metropolitan areas.
    They used anthrax on the congress and the press right after 9/11.
    This is just another, in a very long line of false flags.

    Thanks Ben.

  • LetsTryLibertyAgain

    Am I the only one who remembers the Bush administration trying to generate US populist support for invading Iraq after 9/11 and other than a few chicken hawks who always love to send other peoples’ kids off to fight a war for US imperialism, the public wasn’t buying it… until there was a video leaked that showed al Qaeda allegedly testing some sort of chemical weapon that looked like a nerve agent on a dog in a clear plastic box. Suddenly, US opinion shifted to, “Let’s go get those puppy killing Mooslim devils!”

    We are so easily manipulated.

    It’s particularly depressing that people still have such blind faith in their government the same week that we learn that the NSA is engaged in EVEN MORE spying on US citizens that they lied about last year, and the CIA documents were released that showed what we already knew – the US government under the Reagan administration was feeding Saddam Hussein satellite images and intelligence to help them target Iranian troops with mustard gas and sarin gas attacks that killed thousands.

    The US was on the high road, but our government got off on an exit ramp decades ago.

  • billlyh

    Yeh, Russia is going to fight back, if we interfere. All the republicans want is a war. They want us to be over there, where we don’t belong, fighting.

    • Anti Fabian

      All of you on here who think it is Republicans this, or Democrats that… You need to get your facts straight and not buy into the party division dogma. It is not the Republicans, or the Democrats. It is the Progressives who have infiltrated both parties. Both Bush and Obama are progressives, as well as a majority of congress and the senate. Progressives are the ones who seek to keep war going on in order to continue to move our nation closer to bankruptcy, which will lead to economic collapse, panicking millions dependent on government, which leads to rioting, which opens the door to martial law, dissolution of congress and implementation of an oligarchy dictatorship and destruction of the free market system and all of our liberty and freedom with it. You need only read the Cloward & Piven Strategy and Saul Alinsky’s
      Rules For Radicals to see that is what they are really up to.

      • Chirpy

        Wow that was stupid.Troll. Bush was a Progressive? Nonsense “say it enough it becomes true” bs. Paid troll douche. Obama isn’t even close to being a progressive. Try Neo-Liberal.

    • Syn Holliday

      And as long as Obama resists, we should be good. He’s the Command-in-Chief. If he attacks, he’s just another Bush/McCain.

    • riccieverett

      Dont say the republicans want is a war, this is a D admin a D senate, with a R congress. The statist want a war and that transcends D n R.

  • Tim

    The U.S. via the CIA has already been delivering weapons into the hands of the rebels and training them. Then deploying them into Syria. How is that any different than launching missiles into a country? Trained terrorists are no different than any other guided weapons. The terrorists the U.S. has sent into Syria have killed FAR more people than this gas attack. The gas attack has an unknown source, but logic along would tell you that it’s not Assad. Why would he use a gas attack when he’s WINNING the war??? Especially when they would intensify external involvement. I smell a false flag here. It would make ZERO sense for Assad to use any chemical weapons.

  • Jim

    WAG THE DOG…If Senators John McCain and Lindsey Graham want to fight let them go do the fighting! It’s the same old story, I don’t believe them any more than I did about the lies of
    War is a racket, all this is doing is killing innocent
    people and making big money for the elite stockholders of the military
    industrial complex!

  • TheQiwiMan

    When will that nasty little bridge troll McCain finally die? What a disgusting monster.

  • gooserooster

    Obama said today that there’s no possibility that the Al Queda associated rebels, or the Al Nusra front terrorist organization committed that chemical attack. So now Obama is fronting for Al Queda? What makes him so sure the terrorist group on the ground didn’t commit the terrorist act? Wouldn’t it seem most plausible to at least investigate the known terrorist groups first?

    This entire “Narrative” (code for false reality the media and administration work together on creating for our consumption) is so incredibly illogical and transparent, but amazingly, as the old adage says, if you say it long enough and loud enough eventually everyone will believe it. Right now, it doesn’t really matter if people believe it anymore. As long as the news media is reporting it, and the administration is saying it, they can take whatever action they want. The only requisite is that they have to make it appear that they actually believe the narrative. Then even when the facts come out, they can say, “well, we truly believed it was Assad, and we did what was right, under that assumption”, had we known the truth, we wouldn’t have acted this way”. That’s what they did in Iraq. I know that Bush, Rice, Powell, and the entire administration knew Saddam didn’t have WMD’s, they just had to make a convincing case that they believed he did, then they acted appropriate to those beliefs. You can’t blame them, they had the wrong information, so of course, it’s not their fault.

    This is an old political trick that works very well with the public today.

  • Adam

    I can assure you, The last thing Israel needs is for Assad too be ousted and replaced by the Muslim Brotherhood… As for who did the Chemical attack, I will bet Moochell Obumma’s Balls it was the FSA and not Assad… The FSA needed international intervention too oust Assad… And a Chemical weapons attack is enough too seal the deal..

  • Lucifer Yahweh Orloff

    The repeated attacks by the US military against the innocent people of the World constantly proves that war is wrong wrong wrong. The more innocent people we kill, without a trial, under the assumption that they are guilty, the more we destroy our own legitimacy as a government.

    Goebbels the NAZI Propaganda Minister during WW II would be envious at teh ability of Obama and kind to pull this off.

    Only two outcomes: A Radical Islamic State; WWW III because Syria is a Russian puppet and Russia is not going to sit still on this one. Putin is not afraid of Obama or NATO.

    • adplatt126

    “The Third World War must be fomented by taking advantage of the differences caused by the “agentur” of the “Illuminati” between the political Zionists and the leaders of Islamic World. The war must be conducted in such a way that Islam (the Moslem Arabic World) and political Zionism (the State of Israel) mutually destroy each other, by Albert Pike

    • Galloping Libertarian

      Pike’s Letter to Mazzini

      Following are apparently extracts of the letter, showing how Three World Wars have been planned for many generations.

      “The First World War must be brought
      about in order to permit the Illuminati to overthrow the
      power of the Czars in Russia and of making that country a
      fortress of atheistic Communism. The divergences caused by
      the “agentur” (agents) of the Illuminati between the British
      and Germanic Empires will be used to foment this war. At the
      end of the war, Communism will be built and used in order to
      destroy the other governments and in order to weaken the
      religions.” 2

      Students of history will recognize that the
      political alliances of England on one side and Germany on the
      other, forged between 1871 and 1898 by Otto von Bismarck,
      co-conspirator of Albert Pike, were instrumental in bringing
      about the First World War.

      “The Second World War must be fomented by
      taking advantage of the differences between the Fascists and
      the political Zionists. This war must be brought about so
      that Nazism is destroyed and that the political Zionism be
      strong enough to institute a sovereign state of Israel in
      Palestine. During the Second World War, International
      Communism must become strong enough in order to balance
      Christendom, which would be then restrained and held in
      check until the time when we would need it for the final
      social cataclysm.” 3

      After this Second World War, Communism was made
      strong enough to begin taking over weaker governments. In
      1945, at the Potsdam Conference between Truman, Churchill, and
      Stalin, a large portion of Europe was simply handed over to
      Russia, and on the other side of the world, the aftermath of
      the war with Japan helped to sweep the tide of Communism into

      (Readers who argue that the terms Nazism and Zionism were
      not known in 1871 should remember that the Illuminati
      invented both these movements. In addition,
      Communism as an ideology, and as a coined phrase, originates
      in France during the Revolution. In 1785, Restif coined
      the phrase four years before revolution broke out.
      Restif and Babeuf, in turn, were influenced by Rousseau – as
      was the most famous conspirator of them all, Adam Weishaupt.)

      “The Third World War must be fomented by
      taking advantage of the differences caused by the “agentur”
      of the “Illuminati” between the political Zionists and the
      leaders of Islamic World. The war must be conducted in such
      a way that Islam (the Moslem Arabic World) and political
      Zionism (the State of Israel) mutually destroy each other.
      Meanwhile the other nations, once more divided on this issue
      will be constrained to fight to the point of complete
      physical, moral, spiritual and economical exhaustion…We
      shall unleash the Nihilists and the atheists, and we shall
      provoke a formidable social cataclysm which in all its
      horror will show clearly to the nations the effect of
      absolute atheism, origin of savagery and of the most bloody
      turmoil. Then everywhere, the citizens, obliged to defend
      themselves against the world minority of revolutionaries,
      will exterminate those destroyers of civilization, and the
      multitude, disillusioned with Christianity, whose deistic
      spirits will from that moment be without compass or
      direction, anxious for an ideal, but without knowing where
      to render its adoration, will receive the true light through
      the universal manifestation of the pure doctrine of Lucifer,
      brought finally out in the public view. This manifestation
      will result from the general reactionary movement which will
      follow the destruction of Christianity and atheism, both
      conquered and exterminated at the same time.” 4

      Since the terrorist attacks of Sept 11,
      2001, world events, and in particular in the Middle East, show a growing unrest
      and instability between Modern Zionism and the Arabic World. This is completely in
      line with the call for a Third World War to be fought between
      the two, and their allies on both sides. This Third World War
      is still to come, and recent events show us that it is not far

  • Mike Bennett

    Think for a moment people. The United States and Russia are the places where ALL of these chemical weapons originate. Both countries grabbed Nazi scientists after World War 2. ALL of this conflict, and all of the other conflicts since that war have been perpetrated by our country or the Russians. Here in the USA, 545 people are the front for ALL the problems we have as a country. They also are responsible for ALL of the problems our country is involved in. Their strings are pulled by the money base that has put them in power. You might say that basically Syria is a “training” ground for our corporate products, just as Iraq, Afghanistan, Iran, Viet Nam, Korea, and yes, even the countries in World War 2 that we were fighting in. What better way to test weaponry and corporate produced products. Follow the money, and you will find who is responsible for everything.

    • Cheryl Newcomb

      Just like Saddam Hussein got his toxic chemicals from US that he used on the Kurds. There’s plenty of evidence, check out the pictures with Hussein and Rumsfeld being all chummy. When will people realize that this de facto, rogue, charade of a Government are the real terrorists??

  • ax123man

    There have been few, if any, conflicts the U.S. has ever entered without a false flag to push public sentiment. The only question is, really, why do the sheep continue to fall for this? The formula is simple:

    2) is the public with us?

    2b) no? false flag as necessary until they are

Where did the sarin gas come from? We don’t know. But clearly, Al Nusra Front has access to sarin gas and was planning a use for it.”

  • jac

    Despite all the conflicting reports and rhetoric, we, the general public, have no idea other than anecdotal evidence as to who conducted this chemical attack. The best we can do is postulate based on available, known facts and observed past patterns.

    What are the known facts and past patterns? Swann has laid out many of them here. But an overlooked fact is that since US Civil War times, the US and Russia have acted in collusion in every world war, and never actually engaged each other in battle, at least officially. In other words, the US and Russia have always been allies, either officially or unofficially, even during the Cold War. There was an official cooling off period after the so-called collapse of communism, and since the Georgia war the US and Russia have been gradually edging toward a renewed kind of Cold war, though a different one than when Russia was a world super power.

    Given that history, we now have Russia, a crucial ally of Syria, which it needs to keep its foothold in the Middle East, screaming that they know al Assad did not launch a chemical weapons attack. FSB controlled RT TV is one of the biggest mouthpieces for this narrative, and Swann’s website tends to echo RT’s positions. The Govt. controlled part of Syria says they didn’t launch the attack, and have its citizens hitting the streets proclaiming so to any western journalists that will listen.

    Then the US and its allies swear just as vehemently that the Syrian govt launched the attacks, and therefore must act to oust al Assad. The US motivation for this is to change regimes in Syria, currently an Iranian proxy, in effect, to prevent Iran from regaining its former Persian Empire, which it now has a historical opportunity to re-acquire. The US position is it cannot allow this, so it must act.

    Another established fact is the rebels have chemical weapons that it stole from the al Assad forces, but that doesn’t prove they used them. That the al Assad regime possess ample supplies of chemical weapons doesn’t prove they used them either. Bottom line– someone used them, but it ultimately doesn’t matter which side. It makes no difference to the victims, the Syrian people and refuges, and it makes no difference to the US and Russia, the dialectical powers controlling the U.N. and consequently, world events.

    What is likely to happen now is the US will launch missile strikes and continue its mission of ousting the al Assad regime, with French and British support. Russia, China and Iran will continue to oppose such action, both diplomatically and militarily, by proxy. The UN will pass resolutions, and be ineffectively involved throughout the conflict. There will be further instability in the Middle East, continued political bickering, until the new balance or synthesis the world powers want is achieved–a topic of endless speculation.

    But one thing is clear, the US will do whatever it thinks it must to prevent Iran from reclaiming its former empire, and keep instability aflame in the Middle East, while Russia and its allies will oppose anything the US wants.

    Thus, the dialectic moves on–conflict (civil war, chemical attacks), solution (western military involvement), synthesis (new world order).

  • Eness

    The people in power in Syria gov wouldn’t attempt a chemical attack. It was a small attack first of all, according to reported numbers, which seems more the doing of a small militant group. It seems to me the more logical answer is whoever carried out the Chem attack wants the US to believe it was the Syrian gov. They know that the US will act and therefore in long run ruin those in power now giving opposition a chance to take power. My plea to my fellow Americans is to think critically and do not believe everything ur told through media. There are forces in play that want to deceive in order to carry out their own sick agendas!

    To Eoin 1969. Agreed and could not agree more. I am not anti Semitic. By the way Semetic people are Arabs as well. I am against zionism. And this this happens to correlate with protocols of elders of Zion, which claims to be fraudulent, but the tale of tape is fulfilling the blueprint. Time to step up and take israeli leaders to task. The States is owned by the Federal reserve which essentially is a conglomerate of Jewish families (Rothchilds,Lehman, chase to name a few) a private organization which totes Quantitative Easing is helping the Economy when it is simply buying the Banks assets! What happens when they want to cash in? The states does not even collect enough is tax revenue to put a dent in the countries debt. Britains central bank is owned by the same people who own the Fed. So this all comes down to the elimination of anyone who does not agree with the Islraeli Regime. Regime is a nice word it applies to anyone who’s policy the mainstream media does not agree with. Oh by the way guess who owns the Media..

    Can you imagine the United States going to war in Syria over a few canisters of serene gas that was probably used by the rebel rats on their own people? Only to save Obama’s black silly face. Can you imagine fighting a war with Russia with Barry at the controls?

    • Logical01

      Actually, If you read the reports that hadn’t been sanitized by obama’s ministry of propaganda, you would know that that village had no rebels is it. the village did however have quite a few members of the syrian army present. Bashir may be a bastardbut he isn’t stupid enough to kill his own troops during a civil war. Only a braindead idiot like obama would thin out his own army during a time of war.

  • denxerw2000

    • Trickonometry

      This is true. Deception is hard to tell when truth of some kind is mixed in. I just read an article from another journalist website that claims that Turkeys investigation into the latest sarin gas assault shows that Assads regime did order the use of chemical weapons. In that same article Turkey also said it will not say where it got its sources.
      Smells like rotten Mediterranean fish if you ask me. Looks like a U.S ally is being used in order to spread deception and win the support needed to hit Syria and try to drag in Iran.

  • DAR

    We had better aim some missils are Russia’s ships in the area and who knows where else. Russia thinks Obama is weak, and I think they might do something if we attack Syria. Putin is a jerk that has been waiting for a chance to fight us one way or the other. I have often wondered when it whould happen, now may be the time. Russia could take out our ships over there, and just continue on to other areas.

    • Logical01

      Firing at Russian ships would cause an unnecessay escalation of hostilities. Better to just stay out of it and let the muslims kill each other. Russia is right though obama is weak…and stupid.

    • chris katko

      Get a grip, dude. Right is right, and wrong is wrong, and Obama,as usual, is wrong. He is also weak, and day by day he is being exposed as a backer and fund manager of muslim terrorist groups, using this debacle as a distraction from his moronic economic policies. Aiming missiles at Russia’s ships won’t fix the fact that our country is becoming a joke.

    • adplatt126

      They might “do something” if we attack? You think Russia wants to begin World War 3? Do you want to precipitate the deaths of tens of millions of people simply because Russia “might do something”? Are you dense, dopey, or just perfectly obtuse? Have you lost it? I’ve never been to this site before. Is this some kind of mad neocon site? I actually think Obama is showing some fortitude here. Every fool around him is trying to push him into another unnecessary war and he’s resisting. That shows strength. If Romney were in there, we’d already have a few thousand dead Americans and a Muslim theocracy in Syria. But we’d have shown our “strength”. Also, incidentally, our imperialistic lunacy…

    Your Title is Misleading Mr. Swann … as a matter of fact, most of your posts are full of subliminal Misleading hate messages.

    • LeTronk

      Can you expand on this? How is the title misleading? And what subliminal messages is he using? And if they are subliminal, how are you able to detect them?

    • LostInTheSpin

      That’s a mighty convincing argument you make to back up your allegations, Bo.

    how can anybody say something as stupid as point missles at russias ships, or Assad, he isn’t droning anybody he feels like, and why won’t they mention how Israel has been using chemical weapons on civilians for years. White phosphorus being just one. grow up and confront the real terorists. not Syria where any religion is welcome un-like Israel. or Iran who has not started a war in over two hundred years

  • Jonathan Hughes

    Assad and Israel working together is a good thing. The people that are harboring a devil are he people in the Muslim brotherhood. Those people are a danger to everyone. They look down on the the child like brony furry and zoosexual. I lift them up.

    No legitimate media outlets are reporting this ” 2kg cylinder with sarin gas” – only Right wing “blogs”. Where is this information coming from???

    • Jeremy Wyatt

      so its apparent that “legitimate media” isn’t that legitimate. however heres something you can see with your own eyes. http://www.wnd.com/2013/08/video-shows-rebels-launching-gas-attack-in-syria/ also if you didn’t already know the “rebels” were helping n Syria, are al Qaeda. the united states is helping al Qaeda overthrow a democracy.

      • Chris Palmer

        Anyone other than random “news” websites online that claim to tell the truth no one else will. Isn’t it odd ONLY these same “media” sites mention this “sarin gas”? Like CNN or anyone else you want to name has any reason NOT to report it. Wouldn’t some mainstream outlet have a big scoop over their competition to report it when the others supposedly won’t? I just want to know the source(s) – I don’t believe ANY media just because they state something (left, right or center). The Turkey arrests story exists but “sarin gas” isn’t mentioned except on these “independent” websites that I have no reason to trust.

          its not called state ran media for nothing. did you hear about Russians sinking a cargo ship full of weapons meant for Syrian rebels on cnn? what about msnbc? didn’t think so. you realize that the big 5 media outlets are owned by the same controlling interests that are buying our government officials right?

        this is what Obama wants, its all a scam, just like WTC. this will start the much talked about marshal law, FEMA is preparing a place for all of us, if we oppose it your dead, going along with it your still dead, we are a country of lies, and cover ups, we have no MORALS in America, only the people of America understand what morals are. the government has no idea what they are doing to us. “Obama admit your wrongs and step down”, this would be an admirable act. you have no idea what your doing to America your making everyone hate us even more.

      And who do you consider legitimate?

  • fresnoman4man

    The so-called mainstream media can’t be trusted. CNN has been caught faking incidents in Syria. Al Jazeera is owned by Qatar which is one of the main financiers of the foreign religious terrorists. That news agency and Reuters of the UK was caught reporting the chemical attack a day before it happened. The BBC used a photo of mass bodies and attributed it to the chemical attack when it was actually from the US attack on Iraq in 2003. This bogus photo was in turn used by Kerry to propagandize to bomb Syria. Check out this article about the media being in bed with the Obama regime. http://www.washingtonpost.com/lifestyle/style/media-administration-deal-with-conflicts/2013/06/12/e6f98314-ca2e-11e2-8da7-d274bc611a47_story.html

      Keep your sensationalism to yourself. The Sodium fluoride in water and the kind sold in just about all pharmacies is in too small of doses to be harmful, usually 1.0-0.1 MG. You could do more harm with Bleach and Ammonia than any amount of NaF you could buy at a pharmacy.

      The fact that you called all Wal-Mart specifically shows a level of bias that invalidates your objective credibility.

      • zeestan

        William your a little simple, Try reading the back of a toothpaste tube. Scott douglas is 100% right. Poison is poison weather your taking small doses or big ones. I be6t you think Monsanto’s frankenkenfood is good for you to.

      Me too! The sheeple of America were fools to fall for Obama’s rhetoric and obviously didn’t really listen when he said he was “going to fundamentally change America.” Ron Paul would have been such a wise choice if people had listened and realized how many times over the years his predictions have come true! Now we suffer under this tyranny in office.

  • prfctpint

    Anyone think this theory has merit ? The US was funneling arms to the Syrian rebels through Bengazi. Assad found out about it and financed the Bengazi attack. Since the arms to rebels operation was not sanctioned, the Administration could not overtly retaliate. We are using the Sarin attack as a reason to hit Assad. The WMD are just a smokescreen for our real reason – revenge for killing our ambassador.

    This explains the insistence of the Administration for wanting to do this. It may be their only chance……..

    Heck, I wouldn’t be surprised if the CIA urged the rebels to “frame” Assad just so we could have a reason to bomb him. It explains ‘why now’ and why Obama may decide to go for it without the approval of Congress.

      we will never know the real truth about things, speculation and conspiracy is the only thing we have, and since media loves to cover up the truth America has no choice but to think the only way we think, it is very sad that we cant trust our own leaders, we live in a world of complete uncertainty who to trust, we certainly can not trust OBAMA, in my eyes this word fits him well -OBAMA-NATION, impeach him NOW!!

  • zeestan

    Thats right and the two biggest tresonous, dogs in this game are Mcshame and lynette graham. the others are as guilty by tagging along. That’s what i find so disgusting about Americans who are still crying Ben Ghazi when our congress and Al-cia_da along with our domestic enemy Israel did it

  • zeestan

    we need a MAN like Putin in charge not this lying, backstabbing, bought out Israeli stooge oilbomber

    • allen

      we need a man who don’t use war as a money maker, while our country has not even begun to recover. a man who cares for his own country, a man who acts like commander and chief not a child who seeks attention, and not the boss of the whole world, we need help here at home, another war is not the answer, secure your own country and stay out of foreign affairs unless your going to feed the poor. this is a war that can be won. if the USA needs the spot light feeding the poor and helping others countries to not go hungry is a war that can be won. not dropping bombs on innocent lives for one man. like Iraq killing thousands over lies will only cause world wide hate for the USA,

    The reason Obama dropped plans to attack Syria is that he finally realised that the ‘opposition’ to Asswad is made up of bloodthirsty Muslim terrorist wannabes.
    Personally, it wouldn’t’ t worry me one whit if they killed each other off.
    We have no interest in Syria to cause the slightest concern over their stupid civil war, and could conceivably be better off to let Asswad handle them.
