Mattis Lacks State Department’s Intelligence … On Al-Qaeda’s Chemical Capabilities

“Mad Dog” Mattis, the current Secretary of Defense, lies about Syrian rebels and chemical weapons.

“We have zero intelligence that shows the opposition has any chemical capability,” Mattis told reporters traveling with him to the Indian capital of New Delhi.

His own state department had previously issued warnings about it. NY Times reported the “opposition” (Jihadists in Syria and Iraq) used chemical weapons “at least 52 times.”

Now the Russian Ministry of Defense has reported tankers of chlorine being moved into Idlib before the rebels have a chance to massacre civilians and attempt to blame the Syrian government (again).

This is the repeated pattern. Jihadist psychopaths murder children with chemicals and the media lies in coordination with the US government to blame it on the Syrian govenrment and ignore the terrorists, whom they secretly support with arms and money.

Expect another completely fabricated incident soon. This is your tax money at work.

“This trade deal would make it easier for corporations to shut down more factories in the U.S. and ship more jobs to Vietnam and Malaysia where workers are paid pennies an hour. The TPP is a continuation of our disastrous trade policies that have devastated manufacturing cities and towns all over this country from Newton, Iowa, to Cleveland, Ohio. We need to rebuild the disappearing middle class, not tear it down.

Los Angeles progressive radio has really stunned me with its one sided coverage of Ukraine and the Russian response (Sunday, Background Briefing, 11am).  Guests and the host, Ian Masters, are calling for US imperial actions against Russia and ignoring the US roles in both Ukraine and in Syria, presenting a fake history of what has just happened last week!  The real complaints of the Russians are snidely dismissed without any vetting of the facts.  Some amazingly counter-factual pronouncements, and they place all blame for the Neo-Nazi led  violent coup d’tat of Ukraine on Russia.

The pro-imperial spin of Masters has always been questionable, but openly cheerleading for empire and Obama to escalate the prospect of World War 3 is intolerable.  It is no secret that Obama’s officials openly brag about funding and sponsoring the insurrection in Ukraine that deposed the legitimately elected government there.  The one-sided, US approved so-called alternative analysis couldn’t have been better scripted by Victoria Nuland herself.

“We’ve invested $5 billion… as we take Ukraine into the future it deserves.”
-Assistant Secretary of State, Victoria Nuland

A former National Security Council official, on the Council of Foreign Relations no less, got the mic to make the US anti-Russian offensive sound reasonable.  No disclosures of actual US covert actions across the region nor the history of Western sponsored  “color revolutions” gets a mention.  This is blatant propaganda, by Pacifica / Ian Masters and his carefully selected guest lineup.  Apparently everything that has happened in Ukraine to date is the sole fault of Vladimir Putin, despite Victoria Nuland admitting to “five billion dollars” spent on the Ukrainian uprising, and John McCain shaking hands with the Neo-Nazi coup leader Tyahnybok.

The US and its allies have provoked the violence with firebombs and arson across Kiev for strategic reason.  The US wants Ukraine back in NATO and lined up against Russia.  The Neo-Nazi shock troops stormed the government buildings under the cover of a wider demonstration.  This was classic destabilization, as seen in Iran, Syria and many locations where the US funds violent extremists to destabilize unfriendly regimes.  This is not difficult to investigate.  Evidence is not that hard to find – they openly brag about it!  But it doesn’t get mentioned, curiously, and the picture is painted in red, white and blue primary colors.

A hint of light at the end of the show when Jeremy Scahill showed up to pitch his film Dirty Wars.  Scahill made some reasonable points, but he included some other spin particularly on 9/11 and on Obama’s presumed good intentions.  Masters, however, would be a valuable intelligence asset, and has been a fixture on so-called alternative airwaves for a long time.  He has long been an attack dog against investigating 9/11, much like Chomsky.  The credibility and independence of these people are questionable.
