Despite the frantic efforts of the Obama Administration, the Brits, the French, the Turks and the Saudis to indict Bashir Assad for the chemical attack on the 21st of August, there is strong and compelling evidence that the incident that day was the result of one faction of rebels targeting another. Why? They wanted to make it look like it was the work of Assad but it was not.
As I have reported before, CIA buddies knowledgeable of what was going on at the time warned me at the outset that this was a set up. I would point you to a Facebook posting by a Vladimir Suchan:
UN report identifies 140mm M14 Artillery Rocket in chemical attack See also http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/BM-14. When the story of the attack was first published, the New York Times immediately provided a link to “Amer Mosa’s” video on Youtube, claiming it to be a recording of the attack. As I pointed out earlier, though, the video was actually showing rockets being fired BY the rebels in Ghouta. Other investigators pointed out, that “the video of the nighttime launching of the rocket suggested that he (or who ever made the video) was part of the rebel group firing the rocket. The title of the video, moreover, seemed to suggest that they were firing chemical weapons at Assad’s agents. The timing of the video is also of interest. The video was uploaded before the news of the attack broke out. How could they have known that the rocket pictured was carrying a chemical warhead, unless he was part of the team?” Currently, Amer Mosa’s original account on Yotube was conveniently terminated for, according to Youtube, “this account has been terminated due to repeated or severe violations of our Community Guidelines and/or claims of copyright infringement.This account has been terminated due to repeated or severe violations of our Community Guidelines and/or claims of copyright infringement.” A copy of the video has, however, been copied. Now, when the rockets were identified, the launching device can also be ascertained with a greater plausibility and accuracy. A very good candidate for it is the BM-14, which was, by the way, a favorite weapon of the Taliban in Afghanistan. It also needs to be said that a new account under the same name of Amer Mosa does, currently, exist on Youtube. Less than a day ago, Amer Mosa subscribed to Rihanna and he is clearly fluent in English and has links both to the Middle East (i.e. Lebanon) and the US.
Suchan makes a very important point. There is video proof that the Syrian jihadists have the weapon systems used to deliver the chemicals. Note this is not what many in the media eager to board the war train are telling you. Here’s the video:
All of this is moot now. Putin has put Obama on a leash and muted any possible US military intervention. But the spin and the agitation for war will continue. The bottom line is this–we have no interest in Syria other than to ensure that radical Islamists are prevented from taking over. If that means arming Assad, then so be it.
But notice what this moron Obama is doing. He is arming jihadist rebels and giving comfort and aid to the very kind of terrorists who attacked us on 9-11. That is the real crime.
