War is deceit, said Muhammad. "These Two Men Allegedly Overheard Incredibly Explosive Skype Conversation While Being Held Hostage in Syria," by Jason Howerton for The Blaze, September 11:
Two Europeans who were allegedly abducted and held hostage for several months in Syria claim they overheard a conversation between their captors suggesting the Syrian rebels were behind the deadly chemical attack in Damascus. The men were released on Sunday.
Belgian teacher Pierre Piccinin and Italian journalist Domenico Quiric both say they were able to eavesdrop on an English-language Skype session between their abductors in which they allegedly revealed that it was the Syrian rebels who perpetrated the attack so that the West would intervene.
In this conversation, they said that the gas attack on two neighborhoods of Damascus was launched by the rebels as a provocation to lead the West to intervene militarily, Quirico told the Italian daily newspaper La Stampa. We were unaware of everything that was going on during our detention in Syria, and therefore also with the gas attack in Damascus.
Piccinin said he has a moral duty to share what he heard. He also stressed that he and his fellow hostage were completely cut-off from the outside world and didnt even know chemical weapons had been used in the first place.
The government of Bashar al-Assad did not use sarin gas or other types of gas in the outskirts of Damascus, Piccinin reportedly told Belgiums RTL radio station.
Quirico, a journalist, correctly acknowledged that there is no proof that the conversation he overheard was based on irrefutable facts. He was sure to point out that he cannot say for sure that it is true because I have no means of confirming the truth of what was said. However, he also revealed that one of the three people he overheard in the alleged conversation identified himself as a Free Syrian Army general, according to the La Stampa report....
By accident or design. I find this credible, and reason enough to not rush to our enemies' aid.
...not to mention that they are our sworn enemies. (duh!)
Pretty shaky when we don’t even know if they were prisoners in the first place.
“Two Europeans who were allegedly abducted and held hostage for several months in Syria “
BLACK HEART obama LIED.
One was an Italian reporter who is now free. There was an article on FR about him yesterday.
One would think the reporter would forgo the use of the word allegedly in that case. Reporting standards are non existent.
Similar MO to that used to involve us in Libya. 0bama can’t wait to turn the entire middle east over to his comrades in arms, the Muslim brotherhood. Se also V Jarrett, Huma Abbadien, et all.
You are 100% correct. They certainly have perfected the art of propaganda today!
Either he’s really stupid or he’s smart as a fox.

If it was on Skype the NSA has it!
