We know the Al Nusrah Front terrorists have had Sarin gas since 2013. We also know that every death has been blamed on the government side, and that the so-called “activists” are serial liars working for the rebels.

Rebel warehouse with chem weapons hit by Syrian airstrike in Idlib – Russian MOD

The Syrian Air Force has destroyed a warehouse in Idlib province where chemical weapons were being produced and stockpiled before being shipped to Iraq, Russia’s Defense Ministry spokesman said.

The strike, which was launched midday Tuesday, targeted a major rebel ammunition depot east of the town of Khan Sheikhoun, Russian Defense Ministry spokesman Major-General Igor Konashenkov said in a statement.

The warehouse was used to both produce and store shells containing toxic gas, Konashenkov said. The shells were delivered to Iraq and repeatedly used there, he added, pointing out that both Iraq and international organizations have confirmed the use of such weapons by militants.


PS

“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.

On 20 June a four-page top secret cable summarising what had been learned about al-Nusra’s nerve gas capabilities was forwarded to David R. Shedd, deputy director of the Defense Intelligence Agency. ‘What Shedd was briefed on was extensive and comprehensive,’ the consultant said. ‘It was not a bunch of “we believes”.’ He told me that the cable made no assessment as to whether the rebels or the Syrian army had initiated the attacks in March and April, but 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.”

Video from 2012, Jihadists testing Sarin on rabbits:

Gas supplied by Turkish company “Tekkim Laboratories.”

PPS.

A retired DIA colonel says Russia consulted Washington for 2 months before bombing the Al Nusrah storage depot. This may account for the Jihadis Tweeting foreknowledge of an alleged “CW” attack. This is blatant deception and false flag, knowing the ammo depot would be bombed and making sure there were chemical weapons casualties. It may not have been sarin at all, either, but other chemicals. This could account for White Helmets (al Qaeda) using bare hands on victims.

This leaking attack information to the insurgents could also account for Russia’s suspension of their cooperation protocols in Syria. It puts the fate of the world on hair-trigger alert and destabilizes the security of the planet, all to help Jihadist thugs and their oil sheikh sugar daddies, and to push the empire forward.

Revisiting ‘9/11’ on its 15th Anniversary, in the Context of the Reichstag Fire

The Reichstag Fire, the Tonkin Gulf incident, events like that were major historical pivots in the 20th century, yet they were all engineered, false flags designed to tighten control over the masses. In the 21st, 9/11 is still the granddaddy of all false flags—so far. Much worse is still to come, unless people get really organized.

The 15th anniversary of the 9/11 Disaster will shortly be observed this year.  No single event in recent history has had such an impact on history itself.  I, and many, many others have been writing on it, and the still un-answered questions about it, from the time almost immediately after it happened.  In the view of many of us, the truth about what really happened has yet to be told.  On September 10-11, at New York City’s Cooper union, Architects & Engineers for 9/11 Truth, the Lawyers Committee for 9/11 Inquiry, the NY State Legislative Action Project for 9/11 Justice, the 9/11 Consensus Panel, and the 9/11 Truth Action Project will be holding the next in the series of “Justice in Focus” symposia on the topic of “9/11 Truth” which have been held annually for some years now.

Hitler’s power grab: The Enabling Act. (March 1933). The Nazis’ payoff for their high-handed false flag which enabled it.

“9/11” is a subject that I have visited periodically over the years, most recently on The Greanville Post last April, upon the publication of the redacted version of “The 28 Pages.”   This time around I thought to go back to some of my earliest writing on the subject.  It appeared on a long-closed webmagazine called “The Political Junkies.net.” This time around, because the 9/11 disaster and the U.S. Republican government’s response to  it has had such a profound impact on world affairs, the multi-faceted and super-deadly current conflict in the Middle East being just one of them, I thought that it might be useful to re-visit a singular event that occurred a long time ago, that also had a huge impact in subsequent years,  That would be the Reichstag Fire, that occurred in Berlin, Germany, on February 27, 1933, just about a month after Adolf Hitler became the German Chancellor.  There are some remarkable comparisons between the governmental responses to the two events, of which this column will only scratch the surface.  This text is drawn from several columns of mine on the subject of 9/11 and the Reichstag Fire which I have written over the years, the first being done in November, 2001.

government-lies

 

Over and over and over. Nearly everything that comes out of Washington concerning the reasons for launching their wars is fraudulent. LIies. Deception. Conspiracy. War Crimes.

They lie decade after decade, war after war, and dumb Americans continue to believe them.

The Big Lies of US Presidents

Norman Solomon, Sean Penn and others bring us the modern history of war propaganda and deception.  The American global empire since WW2 is examined, with war pretexts showing similar patterns and designed to rally, not to inform the public.  Official enemies are demonized regularly to drum up support for the next war, all the while professing that America never seeks violence. This parlor trick has been done so many times that it still amazes how the public can be so gullible, so ignorant, so stupid.

Archival footage shows the same lies, from Johnson to Bush Sr. to Clinton to Shrub.  The same war in the name of peace gibberish that plays so well in the ignorant heartland.  When a president starts talking about peace, watch out; Orwellian double-speak is more than a fiction.

“Actually, war becomes perpetual when it is used as a rationale for peace.”

War Made Easy is a compendium, much like What I’ve Learned About U.S. Foreign Policy.  But the editing is tighter and more focused.  This is the real history of our nation that isn’t permitted on corporate network news, not in this succinct, hard hitting, structured fashion.  Voices who call attention to US imperialism and deception do not get invited to corporate news studios.

Sad true fact is that every president in my lifetime should be tried as a war criminal for the same types of aggressive Nuremberg violations that led to the execution of Nazi war criminals after WW2.   And yet I did not see the Nuremberg statutes mentioned by Solomon.  He cushions his critique, perhaps to appeal to the deluded middle American audience, or perhaps he lacks the gumshen to shoot that straight?

Here Solomon tortures the language to make Obama seem less heinous than McCain in 2008.  Of course Solomon is a fixture in foundation-funded professional left-leaning propaganda outfits like Alternet.   Interestingly, not one mention is made of third parties in the election, or of a future that includes third parties.   With all the verbal contortions, acknowledging the charlatanism of the militarist, Obama, no alternative is even acknowledged as a possibility — ever, in perpetuity, amen.

Anyway, how does one know when the President is lying?

His lips are moving.

The US public has been systematically brainwashed into falsely believing that no criminal conspiracies can occur in the federal government.  In reality little else goes on.

In War Made Easy, the lies are exposed, deception called out — but it is never called a “crime.”  It is never suggested to demand impeachment.  It never compares war criminals from other nations to those here in the United States.   Is this a function of the foundation-funded media that critiques within a spectrum, that defines the boundaries of protest?

Media Liars

Thankfully, Solomon does destroy the propaganda of the corporate news media.  They are fair game.  The media, the willing executioners of imperial propaganda, are simply shown doing what they do now that the truth has come out and exposed their reports as deceptions, embedded war propaganda, hostile frothing partisan Brownshirt barking, etc.

“There’s a kind of an acculturated callousness as to what happens at the other end of US weapons.”

Network cheerleading for war and censoring out peace voices is shown explicitly, as the imperial media is laid bare as willing accomplices of death and destruction.  Media profits soar when they hype war and battle coverage.  This makes people more likely to tune in and see their commercials.  In partnership with the Pentagon and US officials, war lies are not questioned, not investigated, and actual journalists such as Phil Donahue in 2003, are simply fired.

Norman Solomon at the University of California, speech: War Made Easy.

“U.S. journalists don’t win Pulitzers for questioning the U.S. empire.”

This film should make you very angry if you have anything approaching a sense of morality or conscience regarding America’s Crimes Against Humanity and those depraved murderous psychopaths who run it, and who get away with mass murder on a fairly regular basis.

al-qaeda-in-syria

How they wailed and moaned over the Houla massacre, one year ago in Syria.  “Assad the Butcher” needed to be taken out.  “Diplomats” pulled out of Syria.  Diplomacy with the mad murderer of Damascus was impossible.

How they wept for the 49 murdered children, until the moment it was revealed that the murderers were their own Salafist terrorists.  Then the news disappeared forever.

Syria : One Year After the Houla Massacre. New Report on Official vs. Real Truth
Syria: The First Casualty…

The mass murder crime remains.  The perpetrators are known, and they are being funded and armed by the US and its immoral allies.

And how we trembled at Obama, the great leader’s, “red line” concerning chemical weapons, nerve gas, the terror of “Weapons of Mass Destruction”(TM) in the hands of the evil overlord Bashar Al Assad.

When the gas was released, the line was crossed.  Only swift heroic action by valiant NATO troops and planes could save the poor “freedom fighters” from the clutches of the brute.  It was global news, an hysteria and call for more war.

Then the United Nations determined it was those same Jihadi terrorists again, who had used the nerve gas.  The so-called “freedom fighters” had killed Syrian troops at a security station with the gas.  The lie was exposed once again, and the terrorist’s PR front, all those lying “activists” trained in deceiving western publics were completely discredited again for the thousandth time over the past two years.

And silence.  Silence in the US press.

The Orwellian US “free press” is nothing of the sort.  By self-censoring the truth, on behalf of US imperial interests and war propaganda, they are the enemy of the American People.  Turn off that junk noise.  Get the facts yourself.  Do not believe US media, as they are known liars.
