RUSH: What if Assad was framed by the rebels and the Obama admin? ALSO video proof rebels used chem weapons…

Rush laid a big one out there today in his first hour, citing an article that alleges that the rebels framed Assad for the use of chemical weapons and the White House maybe have been in on it. And what’s more is that Rush says the guy who wrote the article is very credible.

Here are a few quotes from the article:

On August 13-14, 2013, Western-sponsored opposition forces in Turkey started advance preparations for a major and irregular military surge. Initial meetings between senior opposition military commanders and representatives of Qatari, Turkish, and US Intelligence [“Mukhabarat Amriki”] took place at the converted Turkish military garrison in Antakya, Hatay Province, used as the command center and headquarters of the Free Syrian Army (FSA) and their foreign sponsors. Very senior opposition commanders who had arrived from Istanbul briefed the regional commanders of an imminent escalation in the fighting due to “a war-changing development” which would, in turn, lead to a US-led bombing of Syria.

The opposition forces had to quickly prepare their forces for exploiting the US-led bombing in order to march on Damascus and topple the Bashar al-Assad Government, the senior commanders explained. The Qatari and Turkish intelligence officials assured the Syrian regional commanders that they would be provided with plenty of weapons for the coming offensive.

Indeed, unprecedented weapons distribution started in all opposition camps in Hatay Province on August 21-23, 2013. In the Reyhanli area alone, opposition forces received well in excess of 400 tons of weapons, mainly anti-aircraft weaponry from shoulder-fired missiles to ammunition for light-guns and machineguns. The weapons were distributed from store-houses controlled by Qatari and Turkish Intelligence under the tight supervision of US Intelligence.

Several senior officials from both the Syrian opposition and sponsoring Arab states stressed that these weapon deliveries were specifically in anticipation for exploiting the impact of imminent bombing of Syria by the US and the Western allies. The latest strategy formulation and coordination meetings took place on August 26, 2013. The political coordination meeting took place in Istanbul and was attended by US Amb. Robert Ford.

More important were the military and operational coordination meetings at the Antakya garrison. Senior Turkish, Qatari, and US Intelligence officials attended in addition to the Syrian senior (opposition) commanders. The Syrians were informed that bombing would start in a few days.

“The opposition was told in clear terms that action to deter further use of chemical weapons by the Assad regime could come as early as in the next few days,” a Syrian participant in the meeting said. Another Syrian participant said that he was convinced US bombing was scheduled to begin on Thursday, August 29, 2013. Several participants — both Syrian and Arab — stressed that the assurances of forthcoming bombing were most explicit even as formally Obama is still undecided.

Several Syrian leaders, many of whom are not Bashar al-Assad supporters and are even his sworn enemies, are now convinced that the Syrian opposition is responsible for the August 21, 2013, chemical attack in the Damascus area in order to provoke the US and the allies into bombing Assad’s Syria. Most explicit and eloquent is Saleh Muslim, the head of the Kurdish Democratic Union Party (PYD) which has been fighting the Syrian Government. Muslim doubts Assad would have used chemical weapons when he was winning the civil war.

“The regime in Syria … has chemical weapons, but they wouldn’t use them around Damascus, five km from the [UN] committee which is investigating chemical weapons. Of course they are not so stupid as to do so,” Muslim told Reuters on August 27, 2013. He believes the attack was “aimed at framing Assad and provoking an international reaction”. Muslim is convinced that “some other sides who want to blame the Syrian regime, who want to show them as guilty and then see action” is responsible for the chemical attack. The US was exploiting the attack to further its own anti-Assad policies and should the UN inspectors find evidence that the rebels were behind the attack, then “everybody would forget it”, Muslim shrugged. “Who is the side who would be punished? Are they are going to punish the Emir of Qatar or the King of Saudi Arabia, or Mr Erdogan of Turkey?”

And there remain the questions: Given the extent of the involvement of the “Mukhabarat Amriki” in opposition activities, how is that US Intelligence did not know in advance about the opposition’s planned use of chemical weapons in Damascus?

It is a colossal failure.

And if they did know and warned the Obama White House, why then the sanctimonious rush to blame the Assad Administration?

Moreover, how can the Obama Administration continue to support and seek to empower the opposition which had just intentionally killed some 1,300 innocent civilians in order to provoke a US military intervention?

You should really read the whole thing.

If the above article is factual, it is a blockbuster article. And to be honest, it seems pretty plausible to me. Why?



Let’s start with this from Walid Shoebat:

On August 24th, a video was uploaded and featured on facebook that purports to show Syrian rebels loading what very well may be a rocket armed with some sort of chemical agent. The tip of the rocket is armed with a light blue tank or canister that very well contains a nerve agent. At the end of this video, two separate launches of these rockets can be seen:

Wait, there’s more:

This video from a Syrian TV news report claims to show chemicals (some of labels on these chemicals are in English) and weapons seized by the Syrian government in the rebel stronghold of Jobar. Note at the :10 mark a label that reads: “Saudi Factory for Chlorine and Alkalies”

If that isn’t damning enough, here are two from the Muslim Brotherhood discussing the use of sarin gas:

In this video, two Syrian rebels (Muslim Brotherhood gang) can be heard coordinating an attack on a nearby building. As smoke billows a short distance from the building, a rebel on the ground can be heard directing someone – presumably at the source of the launch – to change his direction. At that point, the rebel from the launch point can be heard talking about using sarin gas next:

But if that doesn’t do it for you, then here’s more evidence that came out last week that corroborates that the rebels are responsible and were getting chemical weapons from the Saudis. Reporter Yahya Ababneh actually interviewed residents and fighters in Ghouta, Syria about what really happened. The article was written in collaboration with Dale Gavlak from Mint Press:

MINT NEWS – The U.S. and others are not interested in examining any contrary evidence, with U.S Secretary of State John Kerry saying Monday that Assad’s guilt was “a judgment … already clear to the world.”

However, from numerous interviews with doctors, Ghouta residents, rebel fighters and their families, a different picture emerges. Many believe that certain rebels received chemical weapons via the Saudi intelligence chief, Prince Bandar bin Sultan, and were responsible for carrying out the dealing gas attack.

“My son came to me two weeks ago asking what I thought the weapons were that he had been asked to carry,” said Abu Abdel-Moneim, the father of a rebel fighting to unseat Assad, who lives in Ghouta.

Abdel-Moneim said his son and 12 other rebels were killed inside of a tunnel used to store weapons provided by a Saudi militant, known as Abu Ayesha, who was leading a fighting battalion. The father described the weapons as having a “tube-like structure” while others were like a “huge gas bottle.”

Ghouta townspeople said the rebels were using mosques and private houses to sleep while storing their weapons in tunnels.

Abdel-Moneim said his son and the others died during the chemical weapons attack. That same day, the militant group Jabhat al-Nusra, which is linked to al-Qaida, announced that it would similarly attack civilians in the Assad regime’s heartland of Latakia on Syria’s western coast, in purported retaliation.

“They didn’t tell us what these arms were or how to use them,” complained a female fighter named ‘K.’ “We didn’t know they were chemical weapons. We never imagined they were chemical weapons.”

“When Saudi Prince Bandar gives such weapons to people, he must give them to those who know how to handle and use them,” she warned. She, like other Syrians, do not want to use their full names for fear of retribution.

A well-known rebel leader in Ghouta named ‘J’ agreed. “Jabhat al-Nusra militants do not cooperate with other rebels, except with fighting on the ground. They do not share secret information. They merely used some ordinary rebels to carry and operate this material,” he said.

“We were very curious about these arms. And unfortunately, some of the fighters handled the weapons improperly and set off the explosions,” ‘J’ said.

Doctors who treated the chemical weapons attack victims cautioned interviewers to be careful about asking questions regarding who, exactly, was responsible for the deadly assault.

The humanitarian group Doctors Without Borders added that health workers aiding 3,600 patients also reported experiencing similar symptoms, including frothing at the mouth, respiratory distress, convulsions and blurry vision. The group has not been able to independently verify the information.

More than a dozen rebels interviewed reported that their salaries came from the Saudi government.

There’s much more so you should read the whole article.

So after all this video and on the ground corroboration that the rebels were indeed using Saudi-supplied chemical weapons AND the fact that Assad was winning the war in the first place so there was no need for him to risk getting this kind of attention from the US and the rest of the world, the article that Rush presented today seems very plausible to me. At this point there seems to be much more evidence that the rebels used chemical weapons on the Syria people than Assad.

DawgfanInFL  There WILL be ‘boots on the ground’, no matter what ‘Hanoi John’ or McCain says. You’ll notice they all ways say “Boots on the ground”? That’s ‘code’ for uniformed, regular, troops. There’s another variety of ‘Boots’ that just might be wearing tennis shoes. There’s amphibious ship with 300 Marines sitting out there with the missile ships. It wouldn’t surprise me a bit if those are ‘Force Recon’ Marines, like my pals, that were ‘supposed’ to be in Viet Nam (according to the government) but were actually in Cambodia and Laos, in civilian clothes and didn’t even wear ‘Dog Tags’, giving our fighters and bombers coordinates for the SAM missile sites located on the ‘Ho Chi Minh Trail’ Somebody has to post the GPS coordinates for the targets those missiles are supposed to hit.   Can that be done by Drones these days?

Now  AmericanborninCanada has named her party The Constitutional Freedom Party which is good but isn’t specific to America.  However, she has a most excellent symbol for her party – The American Bald Eagle soaring beneath a star-filled sky and above the Declaration of Independence which really looks cool.  I wrote to her and told her she should have above the eagle the words “One Nation Under God”.

You may be correct. However, this is exactly what al Qaida wants. This would be like killing 2 birds with 1 stone or having your cake and eating it to. What a perfect way for AQ to counter Iranian Shi’a influence while the Shi’a attempts to attack Israel. So where does the U. S. fit in? Support the Shi’a influenced Syria regime or support the Sunni faction that attacked the u. S. and the group we have been fighting for 11 years.

Just as the muslim communist supplied guns to Mexicans in order to advance his gun-control plan in the US, so he supplied chem weapons to his Muslim Brotherhood bro’s to advance his plan for the new caliphate in the Middle East. There will be a VERY special place prepared for his arrival in Hell.

PoCoTex You are saying  in no uncertain terms, what the majority of our country has been chewing on, but never put it into a sensible format like this. You’ve pulled  major soundbites that we’ve been hearing for some years, but always regarded them as ‘soundbites’ from the cooks, and tried to discount them.But this has been going on so long now and sweeping it under the rug doesn’t work any more. This cancer has to be removed before the “patient” dies.

BetseyRoss tinlizzieowner  Even John McCain has come out now and said he can’t support the Senate resolution ‘as it’s written’ (that’s the catchy part). I still don’t trust my ‘Nam Brother’ McCain any farther than I can throw him. As far as the ‘world community’ part of Obama’s remark. Obama lives in his own world (full of mirrors). ‘The world community’ HAS already spoken. The UN might write a ‘resolution’ against Assad, they wrote 14 of them against Saddam before Bush finally decided (without Obama’s blessing), to go do something about Saddam. The Brits have bailed, Turkey has bailed, Germany has bailed. The Sweden doesn’t go to war, they just sit back and make money off it, even though they were certainly happy when we chased the Germans out of their ‘neutral’ country in WW2. This is Obama’s baby, 2/3’s of the American people are against it. Hell, even Alan Colmes won’t support… Read more »

The headline of the day is going to be “I didn’t draw a red line, the world community did”.  What you probably won’t hear much about is what the (peacenick) Prime Minister of Sweden said to Obama shortly after that.
“Let me remind you, you’re in Sweden……. “. I can’t help but think, that remark indicates that the Prime Minister of Sweden doesn’t consider Obama any less ‘a cowboy’ for his ‘Red Line” bluster a year ago (and now), than Sweden did Bush. I hope the Senate is was watching this. wink wink

Obama is in Sweden, talking to the press right now. You know, Sweden, the country that remained neutral and stored all the treasure the NAZI’s looted from Europe in WW2.  wink wink

He just said “I didn’t draw a red line, the world community did”. Well, Barry, if you didn’t ‘draw a red line’, don’t you think maybe ‘the world community’ (aka the UN), should be making the decisions? You know, like they did when Saddam gassed the Kurds? wink wink

Stating that Obama framed and set up Assad is just common sense based on the Obama administration’s track record. Especially since BO is being advised by his re-election campaign team. There can be nothing but “bad” to come out of this situation. I can’t believe the military is allowing itself to be used like this.

The Tea Party push was very effective in 2010.  We need to replicate it and push out as many career politicians as we can.  Maybe some day we can get enough honest representatives that we can get term limits installed to prevent corruption.

The administration is pushing their narrative and convincing Congress that Assad did the deed…they claim without a doubt!  They are ignoring anyone or any evidence to the contrary.  Obama is proven a devious habitual liar…but we are suppose to TRUST HIM…I don’t but that is not going to make a tinkers dam…where is the rest of the media..waiting on Obama and Kerry hand and foot..  They will break the story after we accidentally give WMD to Al Qaeda.

The administration that sells weapons to Mexican drug cartels would provide al Qaeda-affiliated rebels with chemical weapons, and for the same reason: to build an argument for pushing a larger agenda.

Obama wants Assad gone. He did indeed set Assad up. Absolutely no question about that. Why?  He wants Assad gone in the same way he got rid of Gaddafi and Mubarak. The governments in Libya and Egypt are a shambles right now. With Assad gone, Syria will go the same way as Libya and Egypt. To provide a stable government, Obama, the rescuer, with help from his half-brother and from Erdogan of Turkey, will form a caliphate from Tunisia all the way around North Africa to Turkey, including perhaps Lebanon, Jordan, and Iraq. Israel will then be surrounded, and threatened, by the most powerful, singular government it has seen since the Roman Empire. Obama is licking his chops. He’ll be in a position to rid the world of Israel, something the Islamic world, especially Hezbollah, Hamas, and the Muslim Brotherhood have been calling for since their formation.  This will give… Read more »
