Syria Says US Behind Attack On Own Embassy
AHN ^ | September 13 2006

Posted on 09/14/2006 10:17:26 PM PDT by jmc1969

Senior Syrian government official have accused the US of being behind Tuesday's assault on its own embassy in downtown Damascus.

A Baath party official, speaking on the condition of anonymity, told WorldNetDaily, "We in the government are 100 percent sure America was behind this attack, which is not the same as other attacks by Islamic groups."

He explained, "Only the Americans can succeed in carrying out an attack just 200 meters from President [Bashar] Assad's residence in the most heavily guarded section of Syria."

The official charged that Washington had orchestrated the attack to "prove Syria is filled with terrorists and to put us in a weak position" in order to extract political concessions. Following the attack, Bush administration officials said they hoped the incident had convinced Damascus of the dangers of Islamic terror and the need to cooperate with the West against the phenomenon.

The US and several of its European allies have repeatedly demanded over the years that Damascus close down the local offices and training camps of several organizations hostile to Israel and the West.

The identities of those who attacked the US embassy Tuesday have not been revealed. Three of the gunmen were killed by Syrian guards during the assault. A fourth was reportedly captured.

Sounds like the left's argument about 9/11: Bush's fault. Cheney's fault. Bush & Cheney's oil buddies fault. Blah, blah, blah.

I guess it was really conveinient for the Syrians to foil an attack on our embassy. Only to announce 2 days later that it was, indeed, America attacking it's own embassy.

Do we look like we fell off a turnip truck, you putz?

Well, if an anonymous Syrian source says it, it must be true.

Dang it! We went all the way to Syria and got the address wrong by 200 meters.

Straight from the Dem talking points -- remember all those idiot leftists professors on TV lately, claiming that 9-11 was an inside job, i.e. that the Bush administration did it?

Syria is just getting on the bandwagon.

Yes, the terrorists are taking a page from the leftists in our own country, the traitors who are blaming America for the 911 attacks and for all terrorism everywhere. Hope the democrats are proud of themselves and their treason.

Exactly, the most heavily guarded section of Syria. Now, is it more likely that foreigners (ie. Americans or their agents) could put together something just down the street... Or that someone with the local Govt. approval would be able to put something together just down the street from the local Govt...???

Who is this guy trying to kid?

Well, there are people dumb enough to believe that 911 was orchestrated by the government of the US.

He must think that there are more out there that are stupid enough to believe that the US would attack it's own embassy.

It's worth a shot for him anyway, he sounds like a total fool, but, if he can just convince those few, he's done his job.

The Syrians make this absurd charge because of the "American's" who keep claiming 9/11 was perpetrated by the Bush Administration.
