Al Qaeda in Syria now called  Hay’at Tahrir al-Sham.
What’s In A Name? U.S. Takes Syria’s Al-Qaeda Off Terror Watchlists

As CBC noted, “For the U.S. to designate HTS now would mean acknowledging that it supplied sophisticated weapons, including TOW anti-tank missiles, to ‘terrorists,’ and draw attention to the fact that the U.S. continues to arm Islamist militias in Syria.”

This is just the latest attempt by al-Nusra to rebrand itself as a “moderate” group, as it has used its commitment to being “anti-ISIS” and “anti-Assad” in order to convince the U.S. and its allies to arm them. Al-Nusra has been described by mainstream media as a “moderate opposition” group fighting against the embattled government of Syrian President Bashar al-Assad.

Syrian Rebels Caught in ‘False-Flag’ Kidnapping

Short version: GPS probably saved that guy’s life. NBC knew it was the Free Syrian Army Sunni kidnapping gang from the start, but they went along with the propaganda ruse to blame the Assad government.

I wrote, almost three years ago, how Syrian rebels engaged in false flag attacks and fabricated propaganda.

Syria: The First Casualty…

The “Houla Massacre” was the first major false flag event to make news around the world, and was used as a pretext for western governments to kick out Syria’s ambassadors, in a staged farce.

“Essentially, a small hamlet in Syria was invaded by “up to 700” insurgent fighters. They attacked three government check posts in a lengthy battle, where the army returned artillery fire. A contingent of these terrorists then went house to house seeking out political opponents and massacred the entire families of those who were still loyal to the government or who had converted from Sunni to Shiite Islam.

“When the rebels seized the lower checkpoint in the center of town… they began to sweep all the families loyal to the authorities in neighboring houses, including the elderly, women and children. Several families of the Al-Sayed were killed, including 20 young children and the family of the Abdul Razak. Many of those killed were ‘guilty’ of the fact that they dared to change from Sunnis to Shiites.”

They collected bodies and claimed that the victims were killed by army shelling, which was obviously not consistent with forensic analysis, nor with reality.

The German daily Frankfurter Allgemeine Zeitung (FAZ) confirmed this Russian account of the Houla atrocities on June 7th. The murdered families are named and described in more detail.

“Several dozen members of a family were slaughtered, which had converted from Sunni to Shia Islam. Members of the Shomaliya, an Alawi family, were also killed, as was the family of a Sunni member of the Syrian parliament who is regarded as a collaborator.” (Frankfurter Allgemeine Zeitung, Abermals Massaker in Syrien, 6/7/2012; Translation)

Previously German newspaper Der Spiegel published an interview with the Syrian rebels’ executioner and his death squad named the “burial brigade.”

“According to Abu Rami, Hussein’s burial brigade has put between 200 and 250 traitors to death since the beginning of the uprising.” (Der Spiegel, An Executioner for Syria’s Rebels Tells His Story, 3/29/2012)”

SYRIA-CONFLICT-KURDS

The “mistakes were made” card only plays so many times. Pretty soon it starts looking like a strategy, not an error.

American aircraft dropped weapons to ISIS, says MP

“This incident is continuously happening and has also occurred in some other regions.”

“The U.S. is trying to obtain more benefits and privileges from the government to set military bases in Iraq,” Ghraoui said.

Remember: “Al Nusra” has been on the US State Department’s terrorist list for years, and has been responsible for sarin gas attacks on civilians inside Syria.

Spies Warned White House: Don’t Hit Al Qaeda in Syria

The rationale / excuse:

U.S. intelligence officials warned that any additional American attacks against al Nusra could drive a wedge between the group and their erstwhile allies in the American-backed, moderate opposition.

The larger context is this covert illegal war crime against the government of Syria: created, sponsored, armed and trained by the USA and its Gulf dictator partners. This illegal proxy war complicates the world, understandably, and those responsible should simply be brought before a war crimes tribunal for Crimes Against the Peace and the deaths of a quarter of a million people. Hence the larger deception and utter farce that is this Syria imbroglio.

The article is chock full of the strains of imperial warmongers, the same scum of the planet who created the situation in the first place. Welcome to hell.

Terrorism supporter Erdogan lashes out at US vice president Joe Biden for spilling the beans.

Turkish president lashes out at Joe Biden over ISIS comments

“If Biden told these words, then he will be history to me. I never uttered such remarks,” Turkish daily Hurriyet cites Erdogan as saying.

Speaking back on his time as prime minister, Erdogan said his government had not provided “even the smallest amount of support” to the IS or any other terrorist organization.

“Nobody can prove it. Foreign fighters never crossed from Turkey to Syria. There were people coming to Turkey as tourists and went to Syria, but nobody can suggest that they were armed while crossing the border,” Erdoğan said.

“I view [Biden’s remarks] with regret. I never admitted any mistake, nor did we tell them that they ‘were right’ during my visit to the US. If Mr. Biden uttered these remarks at Harvard, he should apologize. I’m saying this clearly. And we won’t accept slender, indirect explanations,” Erdogan said.
