Many people in the CIA and the Pentagon are saying there was no chemical attack in Syria by Bashar Assad’s forces. Some are threatening to go public. We have records that show that the US military knew that this was not a chemical weapons attack.
Furthermore the head of the CIA , Mike Pompeo, told Trump on April 6 that the CIA’s analysts had concluded that Assad did not do a chemical weapons attack in Syria. Soon afterwards, the head of the CIA was sidelined in Trump’s subsequent meetings. Later that day, he launched an attack on Syria although his own head of the CIA told him there was no chemical weapons attack.
“Before the photo was released on Friday, a source told me that Pompeo had personally briefed Trump on April 6 about the CIA’s belief that Syrian President Bashar al-Assad was likely not responsible for the lethal poison-gas incident in northern Syria two days earlier — and thus Pompeo was excluded from the larger meeting as Trump reached a contrary decision.”
“But in the photo of Trump and his advisers, no one from the intelligence community is in the frame. You see Trump, Secretary of State Tillerson, National Security Adviser H.R. McMaster, White House chief of staff Reince Priebus, strategic adviser Steve Bannon, son-in-law Jared Kushner and a variety of other officials, including some economic advisers who were at Mar-a-Lago in Florida for the meeting with Chinese President Xi Jinping.
However, you don’t see Pompeo or Director of National Intelligence Dan Coats or any other intelligence official. Even (((The Jew York Times))) noted the oddity in its Saturday editions, writing: “If there were C.I.A. and other intelligence briefers around, … they are not in the picture.”
That made me wonder whether perhaps my original source did know something. The claim was that CIA Director Pompeo had briefed Trump personally on the analysts’ assessment that Assad’s forces were not responsible, but – then with Pompeo sidelined – Trump conveyed his own version of the intelligence to his senior staff.
In other words, the other officials didn’t get the direct word from Pompeo but rather received a second-hand account from the President, the source said. Did Trump choose to rely on the smug certainty from the TV shows and the mainstream news media that Assad was guilty, rather than the contrary view of U.S. intelligence analysts?”
It looks like Director of National Intelligence Dan Coats, Pompeo and anyone from the intelligence community was kept out of the meeting. This must be because Coats, Pompeo and entire rest of the US intelligence community insist that Assad did not fire those weapons.
Many US officials, all of the Congress and (((the entire US media))) continue to run with the fake chemical weapons attack story. Almost all liberal Democratic websites also insist that there was a chemical weapons attack. Daily Kos, the website of the left wing of the Democratic Party, insists that there was a chemical weapons attack.
The only sites that think this was a false flag or fake attack are Leftist sites. Even Counterpunch writer (((Joshua Frank))) insists that Assad must have done it.
I got some news for you. They’re all lying. They’re all telling a great big fat lie. Either they believe the lie or they know it’s a lie and they are saying it anyway. The US media is utterly vile, pure filth. If ISIS bombed the (((Jew York Times))) building and killed everyone in it, I would sing and dance for 30 days. That would be one of the best things that ever happened to our country.
