The Memory Hole

Let’s recall the 2013 Big Lie about sarin gas in Ghouta, Syria.  A tsunami of (similar) news articles tried to make a case against the Syrian government. We even had Israeli military intelligence listening in. We had the same victims shown in multiple locations and positions, exposed by Catholic nuns, who were demonized for disagreeing with the official propaganda.

FOUR MONTHS LATER

The NY Times backpedals on its lies:

A new analysis of rockets linked to the nerve-agent attack on Damascus, Syria, in August has concluded that the rockets were most likely fired by multiple launchers and had a range of about three kilometers, according to the two authors of the analysis.

New Study Refines View of Sarin Attack in Syria

Even the retraction headline is a lie! It’s not a refinement. It’s a total reversal. It’s calling bullshit on all the war lies the Times (and most others) put out for months.

Three kilometers, for those not keeping score, was well inside REBEL TERRITORY, not the “9.8km” where the Syrian military was located, undisputed.

That means this is a retraction of a Big Lie. They lied endlessly about gas attacks to the US and western publics. A little retraction piece 4 months later, with a deceptive headline no less, attempts to clear them of any wrongdoing.

Their wrongdoing is profound, pervasive, and ongoing.

    People with attention spans of gerbils will gleefully gobble up any crap story fed to them. I wish more people would stop and think, “why would Assad or the Russians be party to a gas attack, inviting international ire mere days after Trump came out and announced he was less inclined to intervene in Syria?!” War is a racket. A verrrry lucrative one. As Raytheon and the rest of military industrial complex know oh so well.
