Are Obama’s sarin videos released to CNN propaganda?
Canada Free Press ^ | September 8, 2013 | Judi McLeod

Posted on 09/08/2013 8:56:32 AM PDT by Sheapdog

At least celebrated investigative journalist Jake Tapper admits that the Obama videos depicting sarin attacks in Syria, released by CNN 8 p.m, last night could not be verified for authenticity.

“CNN cannot independently verify the authenticity of these videos but we’re reporting on them because we have verified the Obama administration is showing them to members of congress as they hope to build a case to support military strikes against the Assad regime.” (CNN, Sept. 7, 2013).

If CNN cannot independently verify the authenticity of these videos, then why are they showing them?

Some 13 videos graphically depicting the gruesome Sarin attack in Syria make up the White House compilation video turned over to CNN, even though many of them had been previously posted on YouTube. But Tapper points out that the CNN collection of footage is “significant” because the Intelligence Community has given it a stamp of authenticity.

More significantly, the video images CNN described as “hard-to-stomach” were already shown by the Obama administration to a select group of senators in closed-door briefings to make the case that a limited military attack on Syria is justified.

In other words, a “select group of senators” were shown the videos on Thursday, but the television and Internet world got to release them two days later on Saturday.

The 13 different videos shown to Congress show the Syrian victims of sarin gas on August 21. Senators were told that their authenticity was verified by the intelligence community.

Make that the same intelligence community that has admitted wholesale spying on American citizens through the NSA database.

When I search for all the different pictures I found some what seemed to be inconsistencies. There were a few with people seeming to be getting into position and just fine. One had a child covering up her face to conceal a laugh.
And as this article points out sarin is so deadly that people would be defecating and things would be a lot more graphic. A lot of questions just like Sandy Hook.

We’ve seen this political theater over there time and time again even aided by European Press.

We were shown similar films when I went through NBC School. They make congresspeople wet their pants because none of them have a clue about what warfare is really about. How about when Syria and Russia fire on our ships after Obama calls for a strike against Syria?

These people don’t look dead, to much skin color. I have seen a lot of dead people in VN and they looked dead, lack of blood flow, pasty, even Black people.

I have not seen a single female body in any of the videos. I guess they aren’t worth removing and wrapping up in a white shroud.

"Are Obama’s sarin videos released to CNN propaganda?"

Is the Pope Catholic?

The State-Run-Media merely parrots the White Hut Talking Points, and promotional "news" is how the 47% are "informed voters".

Didn’t the Obama admin just rule that propaganda is okay?

Seems something that happened not too long ago.

If anyone remembers, help refresh my memory.

I know that with this admin, keeping track is a job, at least for me. LOL

When I first saw the videos my immediate reaction was that they were faked. They weren’t even good fakes. Get a bunch of people to lay down on the floor and be still then blur the footage. Then have people otherwise healthy, unharmed people cry while dousing them with water, c’mon man. How stupid do they think we are? Nothing gruesome or graphic at all.

Who green lights this nonsense and do they really think rational people will buy it?

.
Authenticity not verified, but ORIGIN IS?

Has anyone thought of the possibility that we are backing the wrong horse?

I wish someone would explain how only ‘some’ in the area gas attack died and some were quite alive and filming the whole event. Wouldn’t everyone be dead?

Smells fishy

And why would you enter an area that had been subject to a chemical attack? Could be persistent agents. Did these guys do a chemical assay to determine what they were dealing with?

It wasn't shown to rational people. It was shown to our politicians.

It is my understanding that death by Sarin, VX or Tabun are quite agonizing ways to die if I remember my training in NBC warfare correctly.
Where are the twisted up postures, where is the facial rictus?
Didn’t see any of that in the rebels home movies.

Obama will not protect any American that goes to Syria. After his behavior during the Benghazi debacle (where was he?) and all the outright lies that followed, why would anyone think he is going to be forthright in what’s going on in Syria. He does not have America’s back and can’t be trusted. Benghazi showed him to be a horrific CIC intentionally letting Americans die- not someone to lead a war.

I didn't watch any of the videos, but that Syrian nun is asking the question about all the dead kids....WHERE ARE THE PARENTS???

Another freeper mention that ALL the men had TROUSERS on, and this was supposed to have happed between 3:00 and 5:00 A.M.....Question..."Do they SLEEP in their TROUSERS"????

Very, very strange. I did see some pictures of Kurds that were gassed and they were somewhat contorted, not laying like these are supposed to be.
