Misconstruing a UN report

the latest neocon tactic of misinformation – Published on Intrepid Report, by Wayne Madsen, Sept 20, 2013.

The UN in Geneva has released its long-awaited report on the use of chemical weapons in the Damascus suburb of Ghouta on August 21. The UN concluded:

  • 1. Sarin gas was used in the attack.
  • 2. The attack used at least two surface-to-surface rockets
  • 3. One of the warheads containing sarin held 56 liters of the deadly chemical.  

The UN report did not assign blame for the attack nor was assigning blame in the charter of the team of forensic investigators. However, France and the United States immediately used the report to blame Syria for the attack.

Cited as evidence were the two rockets used: an M14 artillery rocket with Cyrillic markings and a 330-millimeter rocket of unknown origin.

The UN report stated that the evidence found in rebel-controlled territory outside of Damascus could have been manipulated by the rebels or forces allied with the rebels. The CIA and Mossad have a particularly long and jaded history of manipulating evidence in false flag attacks.

Some Syrian rebels, including those affiliated with Al Qaeda, have been known to have access to sarin gas in Iraq. The rebels also have access to mountains of weapons in Iraq once possessed by Saddam Hussein’s armed forces, most of which were of Soviet or Eastern European origin and from countries that use the Cyrillic alphabet, including Russia, Ukraine, Bulgaria, and Serbia.

The United States is claiming that the Syrian rebels do not have the means to transport such weapons to Syria and, therefore, it is the Syrian government that is responsible merely by using the process of elimination. However, the Saudi intelligence service, the General Intelligence Directorate or Ri’asat Al-Istikhbarat Al-’Amah and its chief, Prince Bandar bin Sultan, nicknamed “Chemical Bandar,” does have the capability to pre-position the sarin rockets used in the attack on Ghouta. Saudi Arabia has been providing cash, weapons, training, diplomatic support, and jihadist mercenaries to the Syrian rebels to topple President Bashar al Assad and his government from power.

The quickness of the French and Americans to use the UN report to blame Assad’s forces for the chemical attack is designed to engineer through the UN Security Council a resolution authorizing the use of force against Assad the moment Paris and Washington conclude that Assad is not abiding by his promise to turn over his chemical weapons to international inspectors. The Russian government is keen on not allowing the UN Report on the Ghouta attack to serve American, French, Saudi, and Israeli interests in authorizing the use of force against Syria . . .

In fact, there is every reason to believe that the Saudis and CIA took full advantage of Syria’s current porous borders to sneak sarin and other chemical weapons into the country from Turkey, Jordan, or Lebanon. In addition, Saudi, Israeli, French, Turkish, and American intelligence agencies have deeply penetrated Syria and have established the networks required to have carried out a “false flag” chemical attack on August 21. Syrian jihadist rebels arrested inside Turkey with sarin gas were later discovered to be linked to Saudi intelligence, according to independent news reports coming out of Syria … //
