Syria Denies US Allegation They Are Cremating Prisoners

Yesterday’s allegations from the US State Department that Syria had built a large crematorium outside of Damascus and was using it to mass cremate the detainees they also claim Syria to be mass executing came with a conspicuous lack of evidence for any of the assertions, boiling down to satellite images of the outside of the putative crematorium.

State Department officials making the allegations yesterday conceded that the timing was primarily related to the recent visit of Russia’s Foreign Minister to the US, and followed it by claiming Russia must be “endorsing” the killings that they offered no evidence were happening in the first place.

This sounds a lot like Washington’s lies, dutifully spread by their media, of Iraqi soldiers yanking Kuwaiti babies out of incubators and bayoneting them.

The CIA, likely the source, thought that old trick was worth another try. If nothing else it gives McCain and Graham something to babble on about.

Be seeing you
