AP Reporter: US May Be Targeting the Wrong Culprit

In the face of Obama and company’s repeated assertions that it is a slam-dunk sure thing that the chemical weapons deployed in Syria were used by the Assad Regime, Walid Shoebat is still reporting evidence to the contrary. Earlier this week, the AP reported that intelligence officials hadn’t ruled out that the rebel fighters had deployed the weapons.

Now Associated Press reporter Dale Gavlak, is reporting that Syrian rebels, armed with chemical agents from Saudi Arabia, were responsible for the August 21st Chemical weapons attack.

Via Shoebat, here is what she reported at Mint Press:

As the machinery for a U.S.-led military intervention in Syria gathers pace following last week’s chemical weapons attack, the U.S. and its allies may be targeting the wrong culprit.

Interviews with people in Damascus and Ghouta, a suburb of the Syrian capital, where the humanitarian agency Doctors Without Borders said at least 355 people had died last week from what it believed to be a neurotoxic agent, appear to indicate as much.

The U.S., Britain, and France as well as the Arab League have accused the regime of Syrian President Bashar al-Assad for carrying out the chemical weapons attack, which mainly targeted civilians. U.S. warships are stationed in the Mediterranean Sea to launch military strikes against Syria in punishment for carrying out a massive chemical weapons attack. 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.

Chemical weapons from Saudi Arabia squares exactly with what we reported back on August 26th. In fact, we even posted a screen shot from a video that showed a back of chemicals from Saudi Arabia. It is from a video purported to be from a rebel location after it was secured by the Syrian government.

President “Says Stuff” is on the verge of exploiting “his Army” to punish (what could be) the wrong side in a civil war where there is very little American interest or support.

  1. The hypocrisy, double standard and controversy surrounding this issue when compared to what happened during the Iraq/Afghanistan wars is astounding. Using Intelligence from agencies that they excoriated for the last decade. Then resorting to information from the Arab League? Really? Back then demanding a “coalition” and approval from the U.N., but not necessary now. V.P. Plugs ranting that he would demand the impeachment of the President “if he acted independently and without approval of the Congress”. The list is practically endless and the humor would be all too rich if it were not for the seriousness of the situation. Nancy Piglosi the war hawk? They [the dims] are never held to the same standard or accountability that the opposition is, never!

    The leaks are nothing short of criminal, telegraphing exactly what will be done and what to expect. I wonder if they emailed Ass{he}ad the war plans and Op Orders? POTUS keeping a arms length distance through the entire mess, only going on the record stating [on tape delay] that “he hasn’t made any finally decision”. Ain’t that precious! While he has sent out all of his minions trying to make the case, including the British Prime Minister Cameron and Lurch Hanoi John Heinz57 . Mr I was in favor of it, before I was against it. I’m still on the edge of my seat waiting for “Genghis Khan” line.

    The only one that is going to suffer more embarrassment than anyone tied to this administration when this entire thing blows up or starts World War III, is Fox News’ B’ore. Yep, the guy who brings on two indisputable experts on the Military and then try’s to belittle and diminish their opinion. Taking his usual cheap shots by interrupting and bloviating and referencing rank speculation and promoting it as gospel and actual facts. Then the next night using information that only broke that morning and taking more shots at Colonel Hunt and LTC Peters who weren’t there to defend themselves of their position and suggesting that was his information from the night before. Typical B’ore! Between them {Hunt and Peters} they probably have more than 50-60 years of service, but B’ore knows more than them with his vast Military expertise. Ya gotta love it. What a blowhard.

    The only Military expert that I’ve seen that gives any chance of this actually working and worth a try is General Jack Keane and of course he conditions it on the “targeting – sustainability of the operation”. Every other “expert” that I’ve heard from {along with my own opinion and past associates} is predicting a disaster with possible catastrophic consequences.

    So here we are, it’s time to “Go It Alone” just to save face for the guy who cannot keep his mouth shut and unless he is using a teleprompter always puts his foot in his mouth. But, at least McLame and Lohan has his back on this one.


  2. He has just taken the “ultimate” get out of jail card. . . . .he will go to Congress and seek a vote. There is NO wave of approval in Congress for this. When Congress votes NO, he will abide by the vote just as Cameron has.

    Pass stop get out of Jail . . . . in 3, 2, . . . .


  3. I wondered why the doctors were warned not to ask the victims where or who the chemicals came from. A report I read from Damascus claims a father of one rebel states that when “el habib” gives Weapons, he should have instructed how they were to be used or given to those trained in their use. The Prince has ties to the U.S. and leads right to the White House. Is there no wonder why America is hated so much. How much more of this gross negligence must we take?
