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.

Still exiled to the London Review of Books, Seymour Hersh continues to expose the covert intelligence fraud involving nerve gas attacks inside Syria.  These were perpetrated by US allied “rebel” forces, the Al Nusra brigades, which the US knew all about yet lied to the world repeatedly.

Analysis by Jonathan Cook:

And of course we’ve been writing and posting about this fraud here since before it happened.  And Jeremy Scahill and BBC owe apologies to the honorable Mother Agnes for the despicable, unconscionable attacks they perpetrated on her for the crime of telling the truth.

When will you respond, Scahill?

 

PS.

Hersh on the Libya / Turkey / Syria “Rat Line:”

A highly classified annex to the report, not made public, described a secret agreement reached in early 2012 between the Obama and Erdoğan administrations. It pertained to the rat line. By the terms of the agreement, funding came from Turkey, as well as Saudi Arabia and Qatar; the CIA, with the support of MI6, was responsible for getting arms from Gaddafi’s arsenals into Syria. A number of front companies were set up in Libya, some under the cover of Australian entities. Retired American soldiers, who didn’t always know who was really employing them, were hired to manage procurement and shipping. The operation was run by David Petraeus, the CIA director

The lies of Obama’s war planning department continue to unravel, and this impeachable deception should be investigated and prosecuted.  Of course in the face of direct evidence that they are lying bastards, the administration sticks to its fraud.

New analysis of rocket used in Syria chemical attack undercuts U.S. claims

The rocket described sounds a lot like this one:

SYRIA-GAS-ATTACK

 

You know, the psychotic Jihadi rebels’ one.  The one the US doesn’t admit exists.  The one you can watch in a Facebook video since August, and that US intelligence knows full well.

 

SYRIA-GAS-ATTACK

Pusned into exile at the London Review of Books (rather than the front page of the NY Times or Washington Post).

‘The [US intelligence] guys are throwing their hands in the air and saying, “How can we help this guy” – Obama – “when he and his cronies in the White House make up the intelligence as they go along?”’

Hersch dissects the evolving farce that is Obama’s “intelligence” on sarin in Syria.

“Already by late May, the senior intelligence consultant told me, the CIA had briefed the Obama administration on al-Nusra and its work with sarin, and had sent alarming reports that another Sunni fundamentalist group active in Syria, al-Qaida in Iraq (AQI), also understood the science of producing sarin. At the time, al-Nusra was operating in areas close to Damascus, including Eastern Ghouta. An intelligence document issued in mid-summer dealt extensively with Ziyaad Tariq Ahmed, a chemical weapons expert formerly of the Iraqi military, who was said to have moved into Syria and to be operating in Eastern Ghouta. The consultant told me that Tariq had been identified ‘as an al-Nusra guy with a track record of making mustard gas in Iraq and someone who is implicated in making and using sarin’. He is regarded as a high-profile target by the American military.”

“…it did confirm previous reports that al-Nusra had the ability to acquire and use sarin. A sample of the sarin that had been used was also recovered – with the help of an Israeli agent – but, according to the consultant, no further reporting about the sample showed up in cable traffic.”

“…They concluded that the [Syrian Jihadi] rebel forces were capable of attacking an American force with sarin because they were able to produce the lethal gas. The examination relied on signals and human intelligence, as well as the expressed intention and technical capability of the rebels.’

“…The CIA declined to comment for this article.”

Seymour Hersch relies almost exclusively on American sources to battle it out over this Syrian conflict.  Still, he is persona non grata today in American corporate/imperial media circles.  The story is disappeared and sent over to London.  Hersch makes the case that Obama is a liar, that the intelligence is being cooked.  The obvious implication is that we probably should impeach the bastards post haste, and you can’t say stuff like that on American airwaves.

I have also written on the Syrian rebels’ possession and use of nerve gas and the glaring falsehoods put out by the US regime…

Doubts About Who Is Using Chemical Weapons in Syria
Is America Helping Al Qaeda Take Over Syria?
The Grim, Relentless March to War with Syria

Refusing to show the actual photographic evidence, the BBC goes into propaganda overdrive to insinuate that none of it can possibly be credible.

The actual photographs / videos tell the whole story.  That’s what’s missing of course at Washington’s British PR wing.

BBC-ATTACKS-MR.-AGNES

In fact BBC itself “doesn’t stand up to scrutiny.”

Do they show the specific images that are the focus of the controversy?

Of course not.  They bring in the FUCKING OPINIONS of shills to discredit Mother Agnes’ work without a shred of evidence on their side.

I already posted this two weeks ago.  Here it is again:

 
Mother Agnes Mariam is mother superior of St. James Monastery in Qara, Syria.
Her group’s analysis of the alleged video evidence of the chemical weapons attack of August 21st shows discrepancies that are hard to grasp:

  1.  The bodies of children appear in different locations, and must have been moved around and staged.
  2.  Bodies of adults also appear in different locations, in different parts of the city.
  3. The neighborhood of Ghouta was abandoned by residents because of ongoing battles between insurgents and the army.  Thus, the residents weren’t living at the location of the attack.
  4. Other propaganda posted by the rebel insurgents actually shows a Cairo, Egypt attack, but is claimed to be a chemical weapons attack in Syria.

Other inconsistencies are documented in a 50 page report from  International Support Team for Mussahala in Syria (ISTEAMS), an organization founded by mother superior Agnes Mariam.

Is America Helping Al Qaeda Take Over Syria?

ADDITIONAL:
The “Arab Spring”

With democratic uprisings beginning in Arab countries early in 2011, violence came to Syria almost immediately in March of that year.  Clashes killed multiple police officers as well as demonstrators.

Also in the first half of 2011, at the start of the “Arab Spring,” Agence France Presse reported that State Dept. official Michael Posner admitted:

“The US … has budgeted $50 million in the last two years to develop new technologies to help activists protect themselves from arrest and prosecution by authoritarian governments.  And it has organized training sessions for 5,000 activists … A session held in the Middle East about six weeks ago gathered activists from Tunisia, Egypt, Syria and Lebanon who returned to their countries with the aim of training their colleagues there.”

By August of 2011, Israeli intelligence publication DebkaFile claimed:

“NATO plans to send large quantities of anti-tank and anti-air rockets, mortars and heavy machine guns to the Syrian rebels”

The Turkish Connection

Nato member Turkey has supported the Syrian opposition rebels from the beginning.  As the BBC described it, “The Turkish government has been a key supporter of the Syrian opposition, and has allowed rebels as well as refugees onto its territory.”

A phone log appeared on the White House website that is jolting in its implications.  On August 7th, the Prime Minister of Turkey, Recep Erdogan, called Barack Obama for a chat.  In the wake of reported mass killings and kidnappings of Syrian Kurds by Al Nusra rebels, the topic of “extremists in Syria” was broached.

“The President and Prime Minister discussed the danger of foreign extremists in Syria and agreed on the importance of supporting a unified and inclusive Syrian opposition.”

This seemingly banal summary indicates Obama’s explicit support for the jihadi factions inside Syria, which potentially comprise half of the opposition forces on the ground, and are widely regarded as the more effective half.

Turkey has allowed the Syrian Al Nusra terrorists to pour across the border into Syria and then to return to safe haven. Turkey’s former Deputy Prime Minister recently accused Erdogan of supplying “heavy weapons” to the Al Nusra terrorists.

“The Erdogan government has sent a large volume of heavy weapons to the terrorist group, the al-Nusra Front, affiliated to the al-Qaeda in Syria and this is while even the US has listed the al-Nusra as a terrorist group.”

Not everything in this grand opera is what it appears to be.  War plans similar to what we’re witnessing on the ground today were developed by the Pentagon back in 1957.  The Syria plan called for US and British covert intelligence assistance to arm and support indigenous resistance movements.  Sabotage was a main feature as was a “Free Syria Committee” to stand against the Soviet backed regime.

While the US State Department blacklisted Al Nusra in December of 2012, the British waited an additional seven months until July19th, for some unknown reason.  Some angry British lawmakers finally named Syrian terrorism, “the most worrying emerging terrorist threat to the U.K. and the West.”

From Globalresearch.

This is going to be very painful.  It exposes the outright, blatant fraud of this heinous war crime, perpetrated by Western mercenary terrorists on the civilians of Syria.  Led by the President of the United States, who has used these propaganda videos as alleged evidence to wage war.

Analysis of Aug. 21 Ghouta chemical weapons “evidence” suggests the victims may have been kidnapped hostages from Latakia who were brought to an abandoned section of Damascus, where a battle ground had been in progress and then gassed by a Syrian rebel terrorist faction.  Their bodies were moved around from staged location to location to film propaganda videos.
