US Finally Admits What Ron Paul Said: “Nobody Knows Who Launched The Chemical Attack”
by Tyler Durden
The AP reports that US intelligence officials are admitting that linking Syrian President Bashar Assad or his inner circle to an alleged chemical weapons attack is no “slam dunk,” as opposed to Obama (and Kerry) who are ‘unequivocal’ of the fact. This would appear to confirm Ron Paul’s comments this morning on Fox News that “We’re not positive who set off the gas,” and indeed – who is set to benefit most from any Assad-regime-smackdown? Al-Qaeda. “Assad is not an idiot,” Paul adds, “it’s unlikely he would do this on purpose... look how many lies were told to us about Saddam Hussein prior to that build-up.” A lot of uncomrtable truths in this brief clip for an administration that has crossed its own red line (as we noted here) on actions against Syria now… “I think it’s a false flag…” Paul adds, there is a big risk that “we are getting sucked in” and the American people are against this war.
