“They had intel 3 days before in Syria, but the intel agencies KNOWS NOTHING about Benghazi?

Does not pass the smell test.
Show the American people this evidence.”

From the US govt declassified brief [NO PROOF]-— the rest of the 3 pages is fluff:


We have intelligence that leads us to assess that Syrian chemical weapons personnel – including personnel assessed to be associated with the SSRC – were preparing chemical munitions prior to the attack. In the three days prior to the attack, we collected streams of human, signals and geospatial intelligence that reveal regime activities that we assess were associated with preparations for a chemical weapons attack.

Syrian chemical weapons personnel were operating in the Damascus suburb of ‘Adra from Sunday, August 18 until early in the morning on Wednesday, August 21 near an area that the regime uses to mix chemical weapons, including sarin. On August 21, a Syrian regime element prepared for a chemical weapons attack in the Damascus area, including through the utilization of gas masks. Our intelligence sources in the Damascus area did not detect any indications in the days prior to the attack that opposition affiliates were planning to use chemical weapons.

The Attack:

Multiple streams of intelligence indicate that the regime executed a rocket and artillery attack against the Damascus suburbs in the early hours of August 21. Satellite detections corroborate that attacks from a regime-controlled area struck neighborhoods where the chemical attacks reportedly occurred – including Kafr Batna, Jawbar, ‘Ayn Tarma, Darayya, and Mu’addamiyah. This includes the detection of rocket launches from regime controlled territory early in the morning, approximately 90 minutes before the first report of a chemical attack appeared in social media. The lack of flight activity or missile launches also leads us to conclude that the regime used rockets in the attack.

Local social media reports of a chemical attack in the Damascus suburbs began at 2:30 a.m. local time on August 21. Within the next four hours there were thousands of social media reports on this attack from at least 12 different locations in the Damascus area. Multiple accounts described chemical-filled rockets impacting opposition-controlled areas.


FROM Kerry’s presser today:

“That’s why this mornings’ release unclassified estimate of what took place in Syria is so important. It’s findings are as clear as they are compelling. I’m not asking you to take my word for it. Read for yourself! everyone...the evidence from THOUSANDS of sources, evidence that is already publicly available [???] and read for yourselves the verdict reached by our intelligence community about the chem weapons attack the Assad regime inflicted on the opposition and on opposition-controlled or contested neighborhoods on the Damascus suburbs on the early morning of Aug 21....”

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.
