Syria’s CHEMICAL WARFARE Has More Than One Address: Barack HUSSEIN Obama Enters The Mix Via ‘Rebel’ Assists. How So? War Criminals Galore…Commentary BY Adina Kutnicki

The following commentary, Syria’s Chemical Warfare Not What It Appears: ‘Rebels’ Fingerprints Too, elicited genuine shock from many readers, prompting countless IM’s to this blogger’s FB – termed an ‘eye opening’ – as well as tsk, tsks from others who preferred to attach a fantastical appellation, rather than consider that Assad’s thugs weren’t the main culprits. Yet, they more than likely responded in kind and their bloody hands can never be washed clean.

Internalize: BOTH sides are barbarians ! Repeat: this war (like all the others) involves inter-Arab Muslim warfare, a continuation of centuries of bloodshed! Nevertheless, some wars are nudged along by outside forces, but it takes little incentive to get them to slaughter one another. This is a historical fact. Deal with it.

Alas, it is still too hard (for dreamers/naysayers) to comprehend that ‘rebels’ are not always the ‘good’ guys, as reported in Brutality of Syrian ‘Rebels’ Posing Dilemma In Westand evidenced at this site. Folks, time to get over the fanciful thinking. This is a jihadist war to the death, and jumping aboard the ‘good’ terrorist side – in order to convince oneself that fighting known barbarians is the ‘right’ thing to do – is, well, simply self delusion. Illusory. More than lethal. A dead end.

But to rationally understand why we are where we are, on the brink of a regional, soon to be, global war, a straight line must be drawn from there to here: from Barack HUSSEIN Obama’s direct support for the Brotherhood Mafia in Cairo; as he jumped into Libya/Benghazigate (ever wonder why witnesses are hidden/identities changed/missing/?); pulling the strings of a pre-planned World War – having warned as much at this site back in Dec 2012 – to rearrange the ‘global order’ (“Western naval sources reported Friday that a Chinese landing craft, the Jinggangshan, with a 1,000-strong marine battalion had reached the Red Sea en route for the Mediterranean off Syria.  According to DEBKAfile, Beijing has already deployed a number of warships opposite Syria in secret. If the latest report is confirmed, this will be the largest Chinese deployment in the Middle East in its naval history.”), under the auspices of banksters, George Soros and Euro elites, and aided by their main hatchet woman – via cover of her dastardly R2P – Samantha Powers.  Her appointment, to rep Obama’s America at the UN, was not for nothing. The geo-chessboard is duly aligning, as ‘predicted’ throughout several commentaries.

Onto the referenced fingerprints, essentially laid out in today’s title commentary. Revealingly, from the onset of this American-Israeli’s ‘hunting and digging’ – spanning over a decade – a main/valued contact gifted this blogger (goodies sent this way are not unusual) The Secret History Of The Iraq War by Yossef Bodansky. Mind you, this ‘helper’ is tangentially associated with Bodansky, a former “director of the Congressional Task Force on Terrorism and Unconventional Warfare for more than a decade. Bodansky is a long time director of research at the International Strategic Studies Association and senior editor for the Defense and Foreign Affairs group of publications…..former senior consultant for the U.S. departments of Defense and State”. Surely, more than qualified to be lent an airing. Taken seriously too.

The point being, this ‘gift’ (among others) was meant to open up some related investigatory avenues and insights for this address. Enough said.

Mounting evidence raises questions about Syrian chemical weapon attack

Special to

Yossef Bodansky, Senior Editor, GIS/Defense & Foreign Affairs

There is a growing volume of new evidence from numerous sources in the Middle East — mostly affiliated with the Syrian opposition and its sponsors and supporters — which makes a very strong case, based on solid circumstantial evidence, that the Aug. 21 chemical strike in the Damascus suburbs was indeed a premeditated provocation by the Syrian opposition.

The extent of U.S. foreknowledge of this provocation needs further investigation because available data puts the “horror” of the Barack Obama White House in a different and disturbing light.

On Aug. 13-14, 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 U.S. 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 U.S.-led bombing of Syria.

The opposition forces had to quickly prepare their forces for exploiting the U.S.-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 Aug. 21-23.{blog note: think: weapons running in Libya!} 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 machine guns. The weapons were distributed from storehouses controlled by Qatari and Turkish Intelligence under the tight supervision of U.S. Intelligence.

These weapons were loaded on more than 20 trailer-trucks which crossed into northern Syria and distributed the weapons to several depots. Followup weapon shipments, also several hundred tons, took place over the weekend of Aug. 24-25, and included mainly sophisticated anti-tank guided missiles and rockets. Opposition officials in Hatay said that these weapon shipments were “the biggest” they had received “since the beginning of the turmoil more than two years ago”. The deliveries from Hatay went to all the rebel forces operating in the Idlibto-Aleppo area, including the Al Qaida affiliated jihadists (who constitute the largest rebel forces in the area).

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 U.S. and the Western allies. The latest strategy formulation and coordination meetings took place on Aug. 26. The political coordination meeting took place in Istanbul and was attended by U.S. Amb. Robert Ford.

More important were the military and operational coordination meetings at the Antakya garrison. Senior Turkish, Qatari, and U.S. 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 U.S. bombing was scheduled to begin on Thursday, Aug. 29. Several participants — both Syrian and Arab — stressed that the assurances of forthcoming bombing were most explicit even as formally Obama is still undecided.

The descriptions of these meetings raise the question of the extent of foreknowledge of U.S. intelligence, and therefore, the Obama White House. All the sources consulted — both Syrian and Arab — stressed that officials of the “Mukhabarat Amriki” actively participated in the meetings and briefings in Turkey. Therefore, at the very least, they should have known that the opposition leaders were anticipating “a war-changing development”: that is, a dramatic event which would provoke a U.S.-led military intervention.

The mere fact that weapon storage sites under the tight supervision of U.S. intelligence were opened up and about a thousand tons of high-quality weapons were distributed to the opposition indicates that U.S. intelligence anticipated such a provocation and the opportunity for the Syrian opposition to exploit the impact of the ensuing U.S. and allied bombing. Hence, even if the Obama White House did not know in advance of the chemical provocation, they should have concluded, or at the very least suspected, that the chemical attack was most likely the “war-changing development” anticipated by the opposition leaders as provocation of U.S.-led bombing. Under such circumstances, the Obama White House should have refrained from rushing head-on to accuse Assad’s Damascus and threaten retaliation, thus making the Obama White House at the very least complicit after the act.

Meanwhile, additional data from Damascus about the actual chemical attack increases the doubts about Washington’s version of events. Immediately after the attack, three hospitals of Doctors Without Borders (MSF: médecins sans frontières) in the greater Damascus area treated more than 3,600 Syrians affected by the chemical attack, and 355 of them died. MSF performed tests on the vast majority of those treated.

MSF director of operations Bart Janssens summed up the findings: “MSF can neither scientifically confirm the cause of these symptoms nor establish who is responsible for the attack. However, the reported symptoms of the patients, in addition to the epidemiological pattern of the events — characterized by the massive influx of patients in a short period of time, the origin of the patients, and the contamination of medical and first aid workers — strongly indicate mass exposure to a neurotoxic agent.” Simply put, even after testing some 3,600 patients, MSF failed to confirm that sarin was the cause of the injuries. According to MSF, the cause could have been nerve agents like sarin, concentrated riot control gas, or even high-concentration pesticides. Moreover, opposition reports that there was distinct stench during the attack suggest that it could have come from the “kitchen sarin” used by jihadist groups (as distinct from the odorless military-type sarin) or improvised agents like pesticides.

Some of the evidence touted by the Obama White House is questionable at best.

A small incident in Beirut raises big questions. A day after the chemical attack, Lebanese fixers working for the “Mukhabarat Amriki” succeeded to convince a Syrian male who claimed to have been injured in the chemical attack to seek medical aid in Beirut in return for a hefty sum that would effectively settle him for life. The man was put into an ambulance and transferred overnight to the Farhat Hospital in Jib Janine, Beirut. The Obama White House immediately leaked friendly media that “the Lebanese Red Cross announced that test results found traces of sarin gas in his blood.” However, this was news to Lebanese intelligence and Red Cross officials. According to senior intelligence officials, “Red Cross Operations Director George Kettaneh told [them] that the injured Syrian fled the hospital before doctors were able to test for traces of toxic gas in his blood.” Apparently, the patient declared that he had recovered from his nausea and no longer needed medical treatment. The Lebanese security forces are still searching for the Syrian patient and his honorarium.

On Aug. 24, Syrian Commando forces acted on intelligence about the possible perpetrators of the chemical attack and raided a cluster of rebel tunnels in the Damascus suburb of Jobar. Canisters of toxic material were hit in the fierce fire-fight as several Syrian soldiers suffered from suffocation and “some of the injured are in a critical condition”.

The Commando eventually seized an opposition warehouse containing barrels full of chemicals required for mixing “kitchen sarin”, laboratory equipment, as well as a large number of protective masks. The Syrian Commando also captured several improvised explosive devices, RPG rounds, and mortar shells. The same day, at least four HizbAllah fighters operating in Damascus near Ghouta were hit by chemical agents at the very same time the Syrian Commando unit was hit while searching a group of rebel tunnels in Jobar.

Both the Syrian and the HizbAllah forces were acting on intelligence information about the real perpetrators of the chemical attack. Damascus told Moscow the Syrian troops were hit by some form of a nerve agent and sent samples (blood, tissues, and soil) and captured equipment to Russia.

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 Aug. 21, chemical attack in the Damascus area in order to provoke the U.S. 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 Aug. 27. 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 U.S. 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 it that U.S. intelligence did not know in advance about the opposition’s planned use of chemical weapons in Damascus?

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 U.S. military intervention?


In devastating detail, one can find mega bomblets: Was Obama Behind The Syrian Chemical Weapons Attack? Added to the cauldron: Video of anti-Assad ‘rebels’ using chemical weapons! Followed up by State’s own travel advisory, pinpointing ‘rebel’ attacks !  Atop the heap, Sen. Graham has warned: sans a military attack on Syria South Carolina will be nuked! What the hell is he insinuating? 

NOT only that, but The Daily Caller reports: “According to these officers, who served in top positions in the United States, Britain, France, Israel, and Jordan, a Syrian military communication intercepted by Israel’s famed Unit 8200 electronic intelligence outfit has been doctored so that it leads a reader to just the opposite conclusion reached by the original report.”

Obama Inc’s fingerprints/footprints galore. War criminals.

Nevertheless, factually, chemical warfare has entered the battlefield, killing many civilians. Undeniably, the blasted Pyromaniac-in-Chief set the stage for the unleashing of Assad’s chemical arsenalin his bid to shore up his Brotherhood Mafia  – through his fingerprints in Benghazigate – by providing them with heavy weapons, which in turn helped to pry loose chemicals, arsenals that had been under lock and key for decades. Less than six degrees separated.

Regardless of the global necessity to smash the Iranian axis (no convincing required for this American-Israeli…living in their cross hairs !) the rational way forward would be to attack the head of the snake – Iran’s genocidal WMD program! But no, the Islamist-in-Chief gave Iran’s Hitlerite regime the biggest gift of all: close to 6 years of breathing room, as he offered the back end of his boot, in 2009, to its true freedom fighters. No one asks: Why? Even so called conservative media are deaf, dumb and blind to this menacing, neon sign.

So, here we are. Indeed, it is incontestably a war crime to use chemical/WMD weapons – as such, they must be secured – but the fact of the matter is that BOTH sides fighting in Syria are war criminals. Yes, a strong case can be made: so too is Barack HUSSEIN Obama! Surrogates alike…Samantha Powers more than indictable….as the leader of the free world climbs down from his volte face …currently dropping the grenade into Congress’s lap…soon to ignite in this blogger’s backyard! 

UPDATE: mind you, it is reported, the following snot nose is being cited as an ‘expert’ on the Syrian ‘rebels’ via Kerry, McCain and gang ! Well, perhaps they should have called this blogger to testify, being that the experience herein is based on much more than sitting in an Arabist leaning graduate program – Georgetown U, John Esposito’s Saudi fiefdom, no less ! Could it get any worse?

  1. Adina,
    Is there any chance you will marry me? Do you ever get to Chicago?

    If no, could we discuss politics the next time you are in town?

    M Jagger.

    • Well, for the purposes of setting the world ablaze via WMD’s, yes, Iran IS the head of the snake. Now, as to the Sunni terror axis, Saudi Arabia is its head. The point being, the inter-Muslim slaughter revolves around hegemonic rule, and there are several players in the Sunni axis. However, in the Shiite orbit, Iran stands supreme.

      In a nutshell, if Obama Inc. cared a whit about innocents being slaughtered, surely he would NOT have given Iran’s Hitlerite regime a free pass for almost 6 yrs.That’s just for starters…

  2. I am convinced that nothing is as it appears in this conflict. I don’t doubt at all that both sides may have used chemical weapons. It’s all smoke and mirrors designed to ignite a regional war between Sunni and Shi’a. Since they all have powerful friends, if it starts, not only the US but also Russia and China would be drawn in. The Obama regime is running a con game over this war with the collusion of certain Republicans. We already know the community organizer in chief favors the Saudis and the Muslim Brotherhood. We know the Russians and Chinese have a carrier killer missile that would be fired in an all out war and I’m betting that Iran has access to them also. We know the Chairman of the Joint Chiefs of Staff in the US has no idea what the purpose or goals of a US “intervention” would be in Syria; he has said as much publicly. And now we have that moonbat Lindsay Graham going off half-cocked (oops, can I say that here?) about nuclear attacks on his home state. I have no idea how this is going to turn out. I expect anything from terrorist attacks in the US to a discredited president who spends the rest of his term on the links. We could only hope for the latter outcome! But I don’t think he’s done stirring the pot.

    I wish that those people who sent you IMs would believe you, Adina.
