U.S. warns Syria not to use chemical weapons ( Today's Warning )

(CNN) -- The United States warned Syria again on Monday not to use chemical weapons amid intelligence reports indicating President Bashar al-Assad's regime could be preparing to take that step as it escalates its fight against rebel forces.

"I'm not going to telegraph in any specifics what we would do in the event of credible evidence that the Assad regime has resorted to using chemical weapons against their own people," Secretary of State Hillary Clinton said Monday. "But suffice it to say, we are certainly planning to take action if that eventuality were to occur."

U.S. officials are concerned that with fighting closing in on Damascus, forcing the temporary closure of the airport there, the regime may be feeling desperate and toying with the idea that chemical weapons could finally crush the persistent rebellion.

——I smell a false flag operation in the making. Can’t prove it, of course, but how about a scenario where some of Qadaffi’s chemical weapons were shipped to the Islamist resistance in Syria via Turkey as part of the Behghazi operation before it was attacked?——

Bingo...and they will use them , then blame Assad to gave Obama a reason to involve US troops to support the rebel MB to overthrow Assad....

Syria is not Libya... They have superior well trained forces, much better weapons via the Russians, air power, artillery power .... The MB rebels well NEVER take Assad out without US help and support in a much larger way...

Obama is setting us up to help support the “rebels” (MB) to overthrow Assad to surround Israel on all three sides to get them to capitulate to a 1967 border agreement...

His legacy ....

RE: "What was that about?"
I don't have any info other then what one reads at the
hyperlinked site (Northeast Intelligence Network). I was not aware
such an organization even existed until you brought it up in your question and I went back to read the end of Doug's article more closely. I missed it the first time around.

Doug Hagmann at Canada Free Press, “Benghazi Behind the Scenes”, Friday, 30 November 2012. The CFP has had two articles on this within the last two weeks. Here is Part 2 (contains a link to Part 1). Here: http://www.canadafreepress.com/index.php/article/51400

Both of these articles have appeared on FR. This version of events makes a lot of sense to me — especially the use of a “false flag” deception to get the EU and NATO involved in toppling Assad. Remember that a Turkish minister met with the U.S. ambassador to Libya at the Benghazi site just before the attack started. The Turkish connection hasn't received a lot of attention. That is, WHY was the Turk meeting the U.S. ambassador in Benghazi instead of the more secure Tripoli Embassy?

This is also my belief. My theory is that the attack on the consulate in Bengahzi was probably Al Quds, Iranian special Forces. The Russians knew we were processing weapons there. They openly complained about it to the UN.
