Syrian Rebels Claim Saudi Prince Bandar Responsible For Chemical Weapons Attack


Mideast-Syria_Horo2-e1377281756747Secretary of State John Kerry, making the case for military action said last Monday that links between the attack and the Assad government is “undeniable,” and that Assad’s guilt was judgment already clear to the world. By Thursday, US Intelligence officials said linking Syrian President Bashar Assad or his inner circle to an alleged chemical weapons attack is no “slam dunk,” with questions remaining about who actually controls some of Syria’s chemical weapons stores and doubts about whether Assad himself ordered the strike. Reporters dutifully filed reports that Kerry’s statements were untrue, but let me clarify: John Kerry, in the great American tradition, looked at the American people and the global community and lied. What we would have called, under the Bush administration a Straussian lie- a lie in pursuit of (at least in Kerry’s warped skull) a greater truth.

And by Friday, a much bigger bombshell, if you will pardon the pun. In an exclusive report for Mint Press News, interviews with Syrians in the location of the chemical attacks seems to point to direct Saudi involvement in providing the chemical weapons for the attack.

  1. This was no accident resulting from rebels getting weapons that they did not understand. It was a coordinated attack. The question is not so much from whom as it is why is this suddenly such a big moral deal now?

    The US was slightly complicit in Saddam’s multiple gas attack on Iranian soldiers in 1987-88. We didn’t bomb Iraq for that. Now we’re going to further enrage the Muslims around the Middle East by killing more of them as if killing as punishment is more moral than killing to survive as a regime.

    Obama f#$ked up when he drew the “red-line,” and now he’s going to compound that mistake by firing dozen’s of $1M cruise missiles into Syria. What could go wrong?

    The unlearned lesson is that 9-11 was the result of punishing Iraq for invading Kuwait.
