Obama admits VT was right on Syrian gas attacks

Chuck Hagel brought us right to the edge of a major Mideast war on bogus Intel

Chuck Hagel brought us right to the edge of a major Mideast war on bogus Intel

… by  Press TV,  Tehran

One big mistake on weak ot phony Intel can leave a permanent stain

One big mistake on weak or phony Intel can leave a permanent stain

[ Editor’s Note: The stories are coming out, one spun by Robert Perry, but by others as well, about how Obama overcame false intelligence and stopped the war with Syria. However, the truth behind it, one Jim W. Dean is writing about below, is that VT stopped the war. We aren’t just saying that, and we will tell you how.

We had so much intelligence, highly detailed, exacting, human intelligence from Turkey, Syria, Georgia and Ukraine, that tracked the real chemical weapons from manufacture to the Gouta slaughter of over 1000; we were so right, and had so many facts that proved we had undeniable sources that Obama was forced to not act bravely, but back down.

He would much rather have been the president that handed America what his aides told him would be a united, American-controlled Syria as a feather in his cap, a jewel in his crown. We knew better, it was going to be another disaster — this time a terror state that would eat up the world with a powerful air force, a 300,000-man army and the ability to tie the Ottomans in Turkey directly to the Wahhabist fanatics in Saudi, a nuclear monster that would eat the world.

Jeffrey Silverman traced the sarin gas, from Georgia into Turkey where Serena Shim of Press TV caught Google Idea Groups running it across the border from Hatay into Idlib and into the hands of al Nusra, where the slaughter began. American fingerprints were on all of it, except for the phony communications, which were traced to Israeli submarine landings off Latakkia, where radio relay units disguised as rocks – yes we aren’t kidding – were used to create the intercepts that never really existed.

Yes, we are going to take a victory lap again on this one, as we stood against most of the Pentagon and State Department Security people on this call, and finally used our access to have it put in front of the president, which is that bogus sarin gas Intel had been put into the pipeline, with watchers along the way to see that got stamped “approved” on its path.

Obama of course is wanting to burnish up his administration’s accomplishments during his last year, and we can take no issue with him on stopping the bombing campaign against Syria. It went right up to the last hour. The planes were loaded and ready to take off, and he stood it down.

The public also played key role with the huge pressure that we did not want to get into a Mid East war based on a questionable event like this. It shocked Congress and the Pentagon… we plantation beings rising up against them to show us the proof before they went. They did not have it, and we knew it.

The Israelis had set up the phony cell phone intercept of the two Syrian officers (who were never identified even though cell phones were used) who were discussing transferring gas munitions from storage to the field. Kerry gave a big press conference, where he waived that around as the big “red line crossing”.  

We were instantly suspicious, as it was too pat… and very thin. Nothing followed to support it. We literally pinged all of our top sources and everybody smelled a rat. The Israelis have a long record of faking communications that they knew will be intercepted, in order to frame someone. They made a mistake by thinking all of us would not remember.

The Israelis (and others) have long had stables of voice actors who could impersonate heads of states, generals, etc., and had used this capacity in psyops in past wars; and really did some amazing things by being able to tap into enemy communications networks. They did not get away with it this time.

And that was a good thing. During our multiple trips to Syria, we were to later learn that the US attack would have triggered a full-scale retaliation by certain parties in the region, and the US would have lost a lot of planes due to upgraded defenses that had been saved for such an event.

And yes, Israel would have participated, and it would have been attacked in return. It would have been a disaster for most involved, and Obama is due the credit for the save. But with Bush (43), Romney, Hillary Clinton or McCain, we would have been in a warJim W. Dean ]

Dear Mr. President, better to let other toot your horn for you, but thanks just the same for stopping the Syria attack

Better to let others toot your horn for you, but thanks just the same for stopping the Syria attack

– First published  …  March 10,  2016

US President Barack Obama has said he is “proud” that he stood up to intense pressure in 2013 and refused to order airstrikes against Syria on allegations that the Syrian government used chemical weapons near Damascus.

The war rhetoric against Syria intensified after foreign-backed militants accused the President Bashar al-Assad government of launching a chemical attack on militant strongholds in the suburbs of Damascus on August 21, 2013. Damascus had denied the accusations, saying the attack was carried out by the militants themselves as a false-flag operation.

In mid-September 2013, the UN investigation team confirmed the use of sarin in the Ghouta attack. The team’s mandate did not include assigning blame for the attack.

Later on, US military officials confirmed that Daesh (ISIL) terrorists – many of whom were trained by the CIA to destabilize the Assad government – have chemical weapons facilities in Iraq and Syria.

In an interview published by the Atlantic magazine on Thursday, Obama commented on his decision to step back from planned military strikes against the Syrian government of President Assad.

“I’m very proud of this moment,” Obama was quoted as saying. “The overwhelming weight of conventional wisdom and the machinery of our national-security apparatus had gone fairly far.”

“The perception was that my credibility was at stake, that America’s credibility was at stake. And so for me to press the pause button at that moment, I knew, would cost me politically,” he added.

“The fact that I was able to pull back from the immediate pressures and think through in my own mind what was in America’s interest, not only with respect to Syria but also with respect to our democracy, was as tough a decision as I’ve made — and I believe that ultimately it was the right decision to make,” he continued.

This was the moment, Obama told the Atlantic magazine, he believes he finally broke with the “Washington playbook.”

Since March 2011, the United States and its regional allies, in particular Saudi Arabia, Qatar and Turkey, have been conducting a proxy war against Syria. The years-long conflict has left somewhere between 270,000 to 470,000 Syrians dead and half of the country’s population displaced.

In September 2014, the US and some of its allies started conducting airstrikes inside Syria against Daesh terrorists. However, observers say the attacks did little damage to the terrorists; rather, they targeted the country’s infrastructure.

In September of last year, Russia launched its own air offensive against the terrorists who were still wreaking havoc in Syria. The Russian campaign, analysts say, has broken the backbone of ISIL and other militants, and has provided the Assad government an opportunity to defeat the foreign-sponsored terrorist onslaught.

    Correct corrections (in brackets)?

    “…where no[w] ARMY personell have physical controll of all the Air Force nuclear weapon and on[ly] the President or Sec of Defense can give permission for them to be moved.

    PS. I said ALL kudos was to Russia. That was wrong. Full credit to VT for breaching the wall of ignorance and corruption in military and political circles. Doubtless, your integrity counted like gold at that moment.
    A number of people blew the whistle on the false flag, from Mint Press to Thierry Meyssan to who-knows how many who published the premature YouTube clips made BEFORE the sarin was launched. More debunked Mossad Unit 7800’s fraudulent ”mobile” calls (Syrian army doesn’t communicate by phone, let alone mobiles). Mother Agnes Mariam exposed the kidnapped Lattakia kids who died, although that came after the backdown.
    Those paying attention at that time may be like myself, who felt the hand of Almighty Lord, holding this stupid species from self-annihilation. Thankfully, there is a living master, who suffered and saved Syria in 1974, and will not allow this sacred land to fall.

    Obama is due zero credit for this monstrous evil. He was on board the plan to bomb, but General Dempsey had already said ‘No!’ to Kerry, telling their meet it would cost a billion a month, and that pilots and fighters/bombers would be lost.
    Obama’s backdown was due to the avalanche of mail against war, but more so to the UK parliament’s veto, which left the co-dependent Frenchies half-assed, as they shared military resources
    (cheap! cheap!).
    That made Oby’s war illegal, and Repub enemies would have impeached Obama, as soon as a US warship hit the bottom of the Med (which would have been soon).
    Never allow Barack Obama off the hook. This coward was all the way to World War Three, until Admiral Stavridis’ NATO Tomahawks aimed at Damascus were brought down by the Russian ship, Moskva.
    Kudos is all to Russia. Lavrov, Putin.

    To Gordon Duff: 16 intel agencies under director Gen. Clapper did not know what VT knew?
    The fact the President went ahead without solid basis also indicates, that the secretary of defense, although an apparently reasonable person and the one first to inform the president, was involved in a cloud of neocon gas.
    VT´s truly patriotic feat deserves my deepest appreciation. Syria was the seat of the first Christian Church and as such, deservedly, has all the Russian protection unlike the US-UK axis of devil, that doing keep every available trick to promote ISIS (Israeli made).
    VT stands among those few relevantly clear to steer the helm to a truly Christian and Western cause, a pity that true Americans don´t reach office and those that share similar ideas are scattered without common points. Whenever the conversation starts to pick this or the other, people bickers on opinions. Buchanan should not be called a moron. Instead, try to invite him to make an article about History, that´s his forte..

      Roger, This is a bit tricky. It is not necessarily a question of whether they knew or not, but whether they presented a “full picture” to the president. We have a person here who was one of the rare historians that had the education background and the clearances to access a huge ABC organization’s archives when current leadership really needed to know the real story about this or that event. To make a long story short, there is a history of presidents being manipulated into decisions not only by what they were told, but by what they were NOT told. We were concerned that the evidence had been stacked…so we did an end run through trusted people from the DIA to the WH…to let them know what we knew…not all of which we can reveal here. We still stand by that if they had already known they would not have let the clock run down to the last hour. We were like bananas and depressed at the same time for the pilots that we knew would be lost. The count down literally aged us. We were able to get the information in because we have been credited with stopping two false flag attacks in the past. You have some credit at the bank when you do that.Sure we criticize the hell out of admin policies, and are hated in places, like VT being banned from all Army installations, but we can be counted on for main event issues, which has something to do with how we are still walking around.

    I think the plan from the top of the pyramid of power ($$$$$$) is to build “greater Israel” by throwing enough people under the Sharia Law bus that it forces Jews to go to Israel. Applications for Jewish refugees was up 50,000 last year. Christians and Muslims are cattle for the Talmudists.

  6. Jim W. Dean, Managing Editor  March 14, 2016 at 4:28 pm

    Thank you folks, we are not hogging the credit. Our material went to the president’s office via Defense Intelligence, and it was unlike anything else that was sent in. We presented that the Sarin attacks were not only an Intel operation to trigger the red line to go into Syria, but that the bogus Intel was “shepherded” along, and that the process be looked at very carefully as to who exactly was involved, and why were not the most obvious questions asked about it being a set up that we would have asked on the first day. We have people here who have hunted moles, and semi-moles…political hacks like Victoria Nuland and others put into new job slots as stay behinds from the Bush (43) gangsters. The Lavrov move was icing on the cake and the NeoCons could not lay a glove on Obama for being chicken. We got zero flack from inside the community for our position.

  7. Poppadop  March 14, 2016 at 3:35 pm

    Bingo. Obama was pushing the “official story” until it was obvious the public was not buying it and Russia suggested the chemical disarmament. How is this some kind of an accomplishment?

  8. Gordon Duff, Senior Editor  March 14, 2016 at 1:52 pm

    JMV…where do you think Syria and Russia get their intel? What the hell does that moron Buchanan have to do with anything? Were you alive during this perioid, assuming you learned to read only recently, you would have followed this story back to VT in 2010 when we busted Turkey for helping train Israeli pilots. If you are unaware of his this applies, I am not being paid to educate you.

    If, however, you read the news, open a few emails, and now consider yourself as a global intelligence insider with standing to criticize those who are, suggest that there are treatments available for situational narcissism…which life delivers from time to know such as “bad luck” or “bad karma.”

    Jim Dean,

    In my opinion your response to a reply below, is without doubt, one of the very best you’ve ever posted here at VT. Thank you so much for the clarity..
    best,

    Raptor

  10. guitargirl  March 14, 2016 at 7:10 am

    Credit to everyone involved and let us not bickering about whom or what!
    Let us all be grateful that President Obama did have that walk with his Chief of Staff!

    A good time to do spring cleaning with many more facilitators of war, disease , crime , and poverty in DC and money manipulators in NYC. Rattle the AIPAC ADL SPLC and jettison the NDAA and the patriot act and the perverts at the airports, uphold posse comitatus and call off the jack boots, that will get you defined as anti semitic weak on nat.security,and communist. But what the heck they’ve been out to clobber you since the moment you were sworn in.

  12. Jim W. Dean, Managing Editor  March 13, 2016 at 8:32 pm

    With your scenario it would not have gone up to the last hour. Obama took a long walk around the White house lawn with his chief of staff, and then went in and called it off. The pilots were in their planes, on land and the carriers ready to go. Many suspected the ploy, but the stated red line and “proof” were the cel phone calls. Buchanan has never worked in Intel or had clearances on the technology, nor worked in counter intelligence for decades. Lavrov gave Kerry a way out of the mess. That bogus Intel was piplelined up the chain of command with an outside country working with more than a few well placed assets in the command structure to push it. After this was over, some “cleaning” began inside the command structure, and the NeoCons then cranked up their “Obama is destroying the military” silliness. This Syria bombing ploy scam was part of the same crowd that did the Minot AF base missing nukes, where no ARMY personell have physical controll of all the Air Force nuclear weapon and on the President or Sec of Defense can give permission for them to be moved. Eighteen of those involved in Minot died within 12 months.
