Man Behind Syrian ‘Chemical Weapons’ Claim Is Fiction Writer Who Ran Benghazi Cover-UpSubmitted by LittleWing on Wed, 06/19/2013 - 11:13
White House makes miraculous discovery to distract from domestic scandals
By Paul Joseph Watson
Rhodes was instrumental in altering CIA talking points to delete references to Islamic terrorists being involved in the attack on the US consulate in Benghazi, setting the foundation for the Obama administration’s cover-up of the incident by claiming the siege was a demonstration against an anti-Muslim film. This was an attempt to hide the fact that the White House had supported Al-Qaeda terrorists in the overthrow of Gaddafi, just as they are now doing in Syria.
Rhodes can also count on the support of the US corporate media in selling fairytales about chemical weapons, since his brother David is the president of CBS News.
The central involvement of a fiction writer in selling yet another war based on dubious claims about the use of weapons of mass destruction is perfectly appropriate for an administration that is clearly beating the war drums in order to distract from domestic scandals.
“Just a few weeks ago the US Intelligence Community did not believe claims that the Syrian government used chemicals, then, after scolded by the Israelis they changed their tune to a very qualified “maybe.” Now, with no formal investigation at all and no word on the chain of evidence or its source, we are told with absolute certainty that the Assad government has used the weapons.And they can’t tell us because it is secret! Just like magic these things happen when needed!” writes Daniel McAdams.
In addition, the innumerable examples of Obama-backed Syrian rebels obtaining and using chemical weapons - including the recent discovery by Turkish police of 2kg of sarin nerve gas in the hands of Al-Nusra terrorists – have been conveniently swept aside.
