UN Official, Syrian Rebels Used Sarin Nerve Gas, Not Assadís Army (May 2013 story)

Testimony from victims now strongly suggests it was the rebels, not the Syrian government, that used Sarin Nerve Gas during a recent incident in the revolution-wracked nation, a senior UN diplomat said Monday. Carla del Ponte, a member of the UN Independent International Commission of Inquiry on Syria, told Swiss TV there were “strong, concrete suspicions but not yet incontrovertible proof,” that rebels seeking to oust Syrian President Bashar al-Assad had used the nerve agent. But she said her panel had not yet seen any evidence of Syrian government forces using chemical weapons (CW), according to the BBC, she added that more investigation was needed. Damascus is facing growing Western accusations that its forces used such weapons, which US President Obama has described as crossing a Red Line. But Ms. del Ponte’s remarks may serve to shift the focus of international concern.

What a surprise! Not.

But I think the Brits, the French, and the Obamanoid are still determined to bomb the wrong guys. Not the first time.

Whatever is true in matters of this nature, I simply do not trust the current administration to be on the side of truth. It is as if, whatever action they take, a reflex issues forth to say, “the opposite action would benefit civility and peace to a greater degree.”

I continue to pray for all in authority, that they bear the sword in a manner that benefits the most people. There is a sense in which the devil is driven in rage to do things that result in greater good to all and more harm to his cause; witness the lady who called into Rush today and was driven by a hard core lesbian to read her Bible.

It appears the CIA has lied about the source of the Sarin attacts to give Obama and Rino’s an excuse to support the Jihadists. It is going to backfire BigTime!

It’s an ugly choice between siding up against them or siding up against Iran’s nuclear weapons buildup against us, isn’t it. Choose both. Smack Assad, and bomb Iran.

But Mr. Husband of ThereZa Heinz says there is no doubt who used them.

And the court jester, Joe BiteMe, said with a very serious expression that there is no doubt who used them.

Who is anyone to contradict this men of flawless virtue?

WHO ARE THEY TO CONTRADICT!?

It’s sad, but I trust Putin and this UN official more than I trust the US President.

Obama and Assad are both pathological liars. Since a VX gas attack makes absolutely no sense, I even believe Assad over Obama.

Sarin is not that difficult to deliver. The relatively low number of fatalities speaks to a inefficient system.

On further review:

This is OLD NEWS.

It's a repeat of a May 6, 2013 story.

http://www.washingtontimes.com/news/2013/may/6/syrian-rebels-used-sarin-nerve-gas-not-assads-regi/

The most recent nerve gas attack -- the one that is calling out the dogs of war -- was on August 26.

Buried by the MSM here but not the media elsewhere. Some of the British press is still independent. And I am surprised to say, the Russian press is not part of the Obama clique.

Wish I could find my original post when this mass murder was reported. Misdirection by the al-Qaeda/muslim brotherhood supported "freedom fighters," supported also by the affirmative-action (but truly, truly ignorant) president was the only reasonable alternative to the Assad army.

When dealing with muslims, there are no rules of civilized behavior.

“This is old news”

Correct! At the same time was this front page news at the time - nup - I hear crickets!

Given that the rebels have done it once what is the likelihood that it was them again? Pretty high I would say.

If the rebels did it the first time and the Army did it the second time then how do we choose who to support? Or the real question would be - How can we support either?

So old news is telling us a story that Obama/Kerry, England and France may be choosing to ignore for the sake of their own plans/agenda

Cheers

Mel

Only if you believe that the delivery system was actually "sophisticated" missiles.
There are two problems with that assumption, but I'll let the proponents chew on it. Why should someone else do all the thinking?

Exactly what makes the delivery of Sarin gas too difficult for rebel fighters?

If you dont think the FSA or rebel fighters dont have many of the same weapons as Assad troops, you arent paying attention. DIY weapons and delivery systems are being used by both sides in this conflict. Rebels have captured whole towns, including stock piles.

Here’s some interesting analysis.

I sure hope it's proven that the gas attack was mounted by the rebels....if nothing more than to completely debunk O'Reilly's claim to the contrary on tonight's Factor.

O'R was outgunned by both Col. Hunt and Col. Peters who disagreed with O'Reilly's smug assurances that the rebels were clean by citing the left-wing Doctors without Borders organization's unsubstantiated claims as "proof".

It was really fun tonight watching the eyes and eyebrows of the two frustrated and disgusted colonels as they tried to get a word in edgewise to disprove the speculative crap the Bloviator was blowing all over the airwaves tonight.

Because they are officers and gentlemen, the two military men couldn't really tell O'Reilly he was insane in his whole take on Syria, but their quizzical, raised eyebrows interspersed with eyeball-rolling told the whole story in pantomime right up till the end of the segment.

I loved it!

Kiss it Bill O’Reilly!

O’Smiley was just on selling involvement in Syria on the grounds that it was definitely the Syrian government that used that gas.

He accused Col David Hunt of “not trusting his own government” and literally chastised the Col like he was a little kid when he dared to disagree with the jerk.

"The relatively low number of fatalities speaks to a inefficient system."

That's an interesting point. And why would the rebels kill their own neighbors--women, children and all? Such an action would seem to be poor public affairs work.

O'Reilly can be a pompous and hypocritical jerk, sometimes, and he definitely does not know everything.
He himself makes almost daily implications that Obama is either a total ignoramus, or a total incompetent, or a worthy successor to that ultimate political lying criminal, Bill Clinton. But then there's the humorous "fair and balanced" thing, which often is fair and absurd.

...”why would the rebels kill their own neighbors—women, children and all? Such an action would seem to be poor public affairs work”....

For the same reason they were doing so in Egypt...it’s not the rebels (homegrown fighters) it’s the MBS just as happened in Egypt.

Assad’s father had to deal with them (MBS) in his country and so has Asssad now...he made it perfectly clear from the start when they were infilitrating the rebel ranks, that he was fighting terrorists...and so did the rebels.

This has the clear earmarks of the MBS all over it....this is exactly how they operate in every country they send their thugs in.....they pit one side against the other until it gets so hot the International enters the picture....(just like they did in Egypt). They are doing the same in Syria...

If the rebels were the ones who did it, this brings up a few TROUBLING questions:

1) Did they develop the Chemical weapons themselves, or were they GIVEN these WMD’s.

2) If the latter ( i.e., they were given ), WHO/WHERE was the source from?

3) If they can use it in Syria, what’s to stop them from giving it to terrorists who CAN and WILL use it in the West ( and here in the USA )?
