White House Accuses Russia of Cover-Up in Syria Chemical Attack

Posted by Martin C. Fox on April 11, 2017

 

The White House accused the Russian government on Tuesday of engaging in a cover-up of the chemical weapons attack last week by Syrian forces that prompted American missile strikes, saying that United States intelligence and numerous contemporaneous reports confirmed that the Syrians used sarin gas on their own people.

In a declassified four-page report that details United States intelligence on the chemical weapons attack and contains a point-by-point rebuttal of Moscow’s claims, the White House asserted that the Syrian and Russian governments had sought to confuse the world community about the assault through disinformation and “false narratives.”

I don’t if The Donald has changed his prescription or what but he is suddenly hell bent on going to war with Russia.  They say war with Syria but the US is not real good at containment.

The four page report says right in it that there is no classified material presented.  Does this qualify as fake news? We still know nothing for sure.  We do know that the government knows how to lie, not well usually but it knows how.

The comment is made the rebels do not have the capacity to make chemical weapons. Others do though.  Turkey supplied the gas last time.  Maybe they had some extra left over. Or maybe someone managed to actually find the mysterious Iraq gas supply.  We know where that came from (Ronnie Reagan and friends).

I don’t know if there is a Russian cover-up but this announcement might as well be called an information cover-up.

Like the lady in the commercial said “where’s the beef?”

Be seeing you
