ALERT! Guardian UK: "Syria chemical weapons attack NOT ordered by Assad, says German press"!

Syria chemical weapons attack not ordered by Assad, says German press
Bild am Sonntag cites high-level German surveillance source suggesting Syrian president was not personally behind attacks

President Bashar al-Assad did not personally order last month's chemical weapons attack near Damascus that has triggered calls for US military intervention, and blocked numerous requests from his military commanders to use chemical weapons against regime opponents in recent months, a German newspaper has reported , citing unidentified, high-level national security sources.

The intelligence findings were based on phone calls intercepted by a German surveillance ship operated by the BND, the German intelligence service, and deployed off the Syrian coast, Bild am Sonntag said. The intercepted communications suggested Assad, who is accused of war crimes by the west, including foreign secretary William Hague, was not himself involved in last month's attack or in other instances when government forces have allegedly used chemical weapons.

Assad sought to exonerate himself from the August attack in which hundreds died. "There has been no evidence that I used chemical weapons against my own people," he said in an interview with CBS.

*** Strange times indeed: it seemed as if the German CIA counterpart the BND (BundesNachrichtenDienst) the propagators/facilitators/propagandists of the "Curveball" Iraq Invasion 2.0 false flag lie, are flipping their own initial script, from accusing Assad, to now doubting it; check out the difference a little changing zeitgeist in 'acceptable public political discourse' and mounting public angst & pressure can have, in a mere week, in the age of the internet:

[Note, the eagerness of the French Govt, American Govt/MSM & the Likudnik pressitutes to propagandize an Assad-biased a-priori guilt]

I hope someone makes a good

I hope someone makes a good mini documentary exposing exactly what happened in this false flag chemical attack.

yup, but I'm sure a few are already in the works

if not, you can do one, too .D

well...all that is if we're still here, by 9/11/2013, and that neoCon Maggot Gharahmhole didn't actually get what he wanted: a mushroomy Charleston.

"Let it not be said that no one cared, that no one objected once it's realized that our liberties and wealth are in jeopardy." - Dr. Ronald Ernest Paul


I think that saber rattling for Syria was a litmas test.. on the public.. Are Americans tired of war? This is the best time to drive the nails into the coffin of freedom, because Americans are too tired to stand for freedom, by their government concerning another nation, Syria, that is losing it's freedom. There's no one left to stand for freedom, and war mongers never want to stop war.. they just move it someplace else.. where the people are united in contempt. Where the talk of love is superficial/ friendly, but the act of love, is lost in all the layers of hate, criticism, doubt, and fear.

incredible work ancap....

You are the Nancy Drew of the DP.
Keep it up!!
