CIA ‘Makes Up’ Chemical Weapons Evidence to Justify US Assad-Must-Go Policy

 CIA Director Mike Pompeo said that the United States possesses evidence that the Syrian Army was involved in the use of chemical weapons in the Syrian province of Idlib earlier this year.

According to Pompeo, following the chemical incident on April 4 in Khan Sheihoun, President Donald Trump demanded that the truth about what happened be found out. Pompeo said that after Trump’s demand the US intelligence community began to work on the issue and held contacts with US partners.”I told him [Trump] that the intelligence community had concluded that the chemical weapon had indeed been used in the attack and it had been launched by the Syrian regime… I knew that the intelligence community had solid evidence… I said to Mr. President that we have high confidence that this really took place,” Pompeo said Tuesday at a dinner hosted by the Intelligence National Security Alliance.

In an interview with Radio Sputnik, Oleg Glazunov, a military analyst and associate professor of the Sociology and Political Science Department at the Russian Plekhanov Economic University, expressed doubts over Pompeo’s statement.

“They don’t have evidence. This is a double standards policy again. Just remember the situation with Iraq – chemical weapons and the white substance in a jar. Later, it was found out that all of that was falsified. Now, there is a falsification again,” Glazunov said.

The expert stressed that while accusing Damascus of using chemical weapons Washington turns a blind eye to the well-known fact that Daesh terrorists have such weapons.”There was a large chemical laboratory in Mosul. Former specialists of Saddam Hussein’s army and specialists from Europe and the US worked there. They helped Daesh produce chemical weapons. But these facts are ignored. Instead, they make up stories and myths about [Syrian President] Bashar Assad,” Glazunov said.

According to him, CIA operatives are “craftsmen of falsified stories.”

“They’re doing this to change regime in Syria. They would even make a deal with the devil if it was necessary to remove Assad from power,” the expert concluded.

On April 4, the National Coalition for Syrian Revolutionary and Opposition Forces supported by the US blamed the Syrian government for an alleged chemical weapon attack in Khan Sheikhoun in Syria’s Idlib province.Reacting to the incident, Washington, which had not presented any proof of the chemical weapons use by Damascus, launched 59 Tomahawk cruise missiles at the Syrian governmental military airfield in Ash Sha’irat on April 6.

Damascus has repeatedly denied any involvement in the incident and said that the Syrian government doesn’t possess chemical weapons as the full destruction of Damascus’ chemical weapons stockpile had been confirmed by the OPCW in January 2016.

In an interview with Sputnik on April 21, President Assad characterized the alleged chemical attack in Khan Sheikhoun as a provocation to justify the US strike on Ash Sha’irat. The Syrian leader also warned of the possibility of the new provocations similar to the one in Khan Sheikhoun.

Last week, the Russian Foreign Ministry said that terrorists in Syria were planning to stage provocations involving chemical weapons in order to justify US strikes on the Syrian Army and its allies.

“According to information available [to us], Syrian terrorist groups plan staged provocative actions with the use of chemical poison gases to justify US strikes against the positions of the Syrian government forces,” Foreign Ministry Spokesperson Maria Zakharova said at a daily press briefing.

She added that Daesh has deployed chemical laboratories and special equipment for creating chemical bombs to Deir ez-Zor from Raqqa.A week earlier, the White House claimed that a new attack involving chemical weapons was in the works by the Syrian government, however, declined to present any evidence. Washington vowed to make Syrian authorities “pay a heavy price” in the case of chemical weapons use.

The Kremlin commented on the White House’s claim and said that it considers the US’ threats against Syrian legitimate leadership to be “unacceptable.” Damascus also denied the information.

    … spoken as if making deals with the devil isn’t the ONLY thing the CIA does.

      Some of them have definitely sold their souls…

    As Gordon Duff said while in Syria over a year ago, this world is controlled, and operated by a criminal organization. No country is immune, no politicians so noble he will not take. The elections are rigged via electronic vote counting machines, and the election canditates are getting dumber, beyond stupid no matter the party. They are all compromised. Some day the powers that be will turn the screws too tight, and it will happen, backlash. They will turn their state and local police inward to kill as many as they can. Stealing while in public office is now legal. Prove I’m wrong.

      Joe: Having been in Syria before, during and/or after Duff & Co. were in Syria, IMHO, you are quite certainly correct. However, it was this same Russian & other Kosher Nostra criminal org that helped to put ‘your boy’ Trump into power — the less competent of two evils (but easier to take down).

      Most if not all in Congress & White House are bribed, blackmailed, extorted and/or threatened — including Trump & Co.. Same is true of most if not all leaders of other countries.

    I still haven’t gotten over the graphic pictures and videos of drugged babies with dilated pupils having needles poked into their hearts and swirled around!

    There are at least two types of evidence. First one, rapidly becoming obsolete in the ”civilized world” , is based on undisputable facts and laws of science and logic. The second primarily relies on “You’re guilty because I’m hungry” approach, or its “civilized” version: “Who cares what you think and can prove as long as very few can hear you ?”.

    Frankly, I couldn’t care less what the “intelligence” communities say. They are proven liars who should have been hung in public after lying their way into the Iraq war. They have provided nothing that has not been thoroughly discredited by competent, professional analysts. Their narratives don’t even pass the smell test, as every time they open their lying mouths, all I can smell is sh!t. Every analyst and regular visitor here at VT has payed very close attention to these matters. Personally, I have documented every major development of the Syrian war for the last 3 years. It’s hundreds of pages and not one detail suggests Assad is who the USG says he is. On the contrary, there is absolutely no way he could have lasted this long against Israel, Murica, Saudi, ISIS, al Qaeda, etc, without the full support of the Syrian people, which he indeed has.

    [email protected] off CIA scum. I hope you burn in hell.

    Even if the United States of Israel provided “evidence” it would be totally meaningless at this late stage. This is why crime scenes are investigated by experts immediately following the crime and no unauthorized parties are permitted at the scene. They could have easily cooked up some fake “evidence” in the meantime. The U.S. government is today an outlaw international organization of criminals just like an international Mafia. Adolf Trump is himself an unindicted war criminal who has killed innocent children and civilians in Yemen and Syria in addition to being an unindicted criminal in his businesses with Mafia thugs as officers of his organization. He has also been accused of child rape charges. Adolf is a bully, liar, cheater, con artist and destroyer of priceless artifacts from the Bon Wit Teller building replaced by his ugly tower. He promised to save them but destroyed them instead further confirming he is a liar and cheater.

      Here is a brief quote from Wikipedia on Pompeo:
      “He then attended the U.S. Military Academy at West Point where he majored in mechanical engineering, graduating first in his class in 1986 and subsequently serving in the Army as an Armor Branch cavalry officer from 1986 to 1991.[10] He received his J.D. from Harvard Law School, where he was an editor of the Harvard Law Review.” Following a great start graduating at the top of his class in M.E., he quickly learned to be a lying lawyer. Then he sold his soul to the devil joining the Adolf Trump team of bullies, liars and cheaters. A sad story indeed. But Pompao knows the rules but obviously has sold out to the devil by joining the international organization of criminals running the United States of Israel today. Shame on you Mr. P. You are a disgusting lying piece of garbage as is your boss and all of the whores in Congress who intimidated the only courageous member Dr. Cynthia McKinney for her objections to taking a pledge to support a foreign country named Israel.

    • wjabbe  July 12, 2017 at 10:22 am

      And hey Mr Pompeo: If you need proof you boss is a bully, liar and cheater in New York for over 30 years, read the many articles by top investigative journalist the late Wayne Barrett who began as a young man. First Adolf Trump sought to silence him with bribes, followed by threats and intimidation. Among many things you can read how Adolf Trump refused to rent to blacks in housing and lied about it in federal court. If you look up Trump Tower in Wikipedia you can read how your boss deliberately lied about and destroyed priceless artifacts from the former building his ugly tower replace in NY. By the way how about releasing the secret CIA files proving that Israel did 9/11 with the aid of Bush, Cheney and the traitorous four star generals. Secrecy is the enemy of the truth. How about a little truth for a change from our outlaw government? Do you mean to tell us you were taught to lie but are a top Mechanical Engineering Student from West Point? Winfield J.

      My late Father majored in Mechanical Engineering at the University of Minnesota in 1936 a top school then and now, likely way above West Point. He worked his way through school without any loans or scholarships. He would not be pleased, but not surprised, to learn that a top student in Mechanical Engineering at West Point, one of the most difficult majors except possibly for physics, had accepted a job of the secret criminal organization of our government conducting horrible crimes, in secret, all over the world. I say you evidently have no conscience and are a shameful disgrace to your alma mater and the Founders of this once great country which has turned into a Gestapo or worse today.

    Whenever an American official talks about a regime change, Assad should publicly announce that he is in full agreement, but do they have any suitable candidates to take the Donald’s place ?

    • Dr. Abu-Bakr Susta  July 13, 2017 at 12:00 am

      PB: No. 😉 .

    Perhaps a regime change that removed Netanyahu and his hard line cronies from power in Israel would do more for peace in the Middle East than any other action.

    • Dr. Abu-Bakr Susta  July 13, 2017 at 12:04 am

      EA: Bibi is just the latest incarnation of an RKM/Rotten-Child boy.

      Unfortunately, most if not all possible PMs in Israel would not be good — or just as bad.
