Posted on 08/30/2013 2:43:11 PM PDT by redreno
American intelligence agencies had indications three days beforehand that the Syrian regime was poised to launch a lethal chemical attack that killed more than a thousand people and has set the stage for a possible U.S. military strike on Syria.
The disclosure -- part of a larger U.S. intelligence briefing on Syria's chemical attacks -- raises all sorts of uncomfortable questions for the American government. First and foremost: What, if anything, did it do to notify the Syrian opposition of the pending attack?

Intel = in on the planing loop?
I’d be willing to bet that the Israelis provided this intel.
Ping, more interesting reporting.
Why should I believe a word of this war drum propaganda??? Slam dunk again?
All part of Wag the Dog.
Of course they had evidence. But not the evidence they are shoveling out to the public right now.
Hmmm...thanks for ping. I don’t really buy anything this administration is selling. And this is a hard sell offensive they are engaged in.
Not just American lives but also means and methods. Screw ‘em. Let them figger it out for themselves and then even if it’s not a bluff. But if the info is real does Colin Colonel Powell know about it?
My guess is, if they told the Russians that Chechins would hold off attacks on the Winter Games if they ‘played ball’, I kinda suspet the Putin turned it around and said, “If you do NOT control the Chechins during the Olympics, Riyad will become a smoking crater. I am not Obama, I DO NOT fool around!”
This confirms the reporter on John Batcherlor’s show. He said US and Turk intelligence met with the Syrian Free Army a few days before this, and told them to hold off because something big was going to happen.
Obama knew and allowed all those innocents to die.

Pretty good psyops.
Bet that even the Syrian gov did not know they were going to use chemical weapons three days ahead of time.
Syrian officials are going to start a circular firing squad to eliminate the leakage, all the while fearing that there are yet other traitors in their ranks.
And nobody is going to pay attention to the contradictory statements coming out of Washington (for example, the claim that the evidence of Syrian army involvement was a tapped phone call after the attack, when now they are claiming to have had evidence before the attack).
