In his press conference yesterday, President Barack Obama said that there was ´overwhelming evidence´ Syrian President Bashar al-Assad carried out a chemical weapons attack against rebels in the suburbs of Damascus on August 21. What he didn´t mention was that his administration knew about the alleged nerve-gas attack three days before it happened. At a U.S. intelligence briefing Friday afternoon, senior administration officials disclosed that there were indications three days prior that an attack was coming. ´In the three days prior to the attack, we collected streams of human, signals and

Sort it out for yourself. Laymen can´t be sure and the professionals have agendas.

In war Truth is the first casualty. Then it is killed again each day and night. And usually for years afterward.

Another "stand down" order? One would expect that having the knowledge that a chemical attack was going to happen, someone in the intelligence arena would have sent the question up the chain of command: "What do we do?" How high did the information go? Who in the Obama administration made the decision to do nothing? Who in the Obama administration ordered people to NOT warn the Syrian opposition? Who gave the order to "stand down"?

French "intelligence report" "leaked" to John Kerry.

Oh, really?

The French intelligence summary - confirmed by Paris as accurate - was leaked as US Secretary of State John Kerry insisted Washington had independent evidence that Assad´s henchmen used sarin against civilians during the August 21 bombardment.

He said samples of hair and blood provided to the US by people on the ground in Damascus had ´tested positive´ for the nerve agent. The case for a military attack was getting ´stronger by the day,´ he added.

Why "leaked"? This whole thing smells so fishy.

We´ve seen Hollywood-produced movies that had scenes of mass death. This one doesn´t feel right.

No big fan of the UN, I am nonetheless interested in hearing what their evidence-gathering comes up with. I have a hunch that Obie wants to know, too.

Then the most disturbing question: Did the Obama administration deliberately allow a chemical attack to go forward in order to use it as an excuse to attack Syria and tip the balance in favor of the opposition? And they have the brass to come out now and moan over "the children." The ones they abandoned to their fate. Turns your stomach. Monsters.

And don´t anyone dare cite Churchill. England was in an existential war with the Nazis and could not let them know they had cracked the German code. Here, everyone and their maiden aunt knows that the NSA scoops up every phone call in the world. NOT a state secret.

I inferred from the various speechifyings on the matter that there was real-time intel about the attacks, where they originated, who was coordinating them, where they were targeted, comms, etc.

So some real-time knowledge of the goings-on, now advance knowledge of the goings-on, and Barry (Peace Prize be Upon Him) does nothing, says nothing, advises no one? This guy is a fool.

#1, my hat is off to you. At NCO school many years ago they asked what the 1st casualty in a war was. I gave your answer, "The truth".
After being severaly dressed down, I was informed that the proper answer is "the plan".
I liked my answer better.

If it came out of Kerry´s mouth - I doubt it.

From everything I read, if it was a Sarin attack then all the rescuers we saw in the pictures would have fallen down dead, too, the stuff is that sticky and that poisonous.

Since those first reports all the evidence has been bent towards trying to look more Sarin-ish. Including how many bald faced lies.

I just read where the Saudis gave tubes of gas to the rebels to transport to a tunnel in Syria and not knowing what they were carrying had spilled some and that´s what killed over 350 people. I think the Saudi gov. and the US is somehow involved in this and just trying to get rid of Assad. Whole thing makes me sick.

I believe the old axiom that if a congenital liar tells you something serious while trying to sell you something, he is only spreading more lies. Now who fits that description... Obama, Kerry, etal. That isn´t an old axiom, it just seemed to apply here.

Has anyone else noticed that the usual suspects are missing in all of this propaganda going on.. the Clintons, Huma, Reid, etc. This isn´t going to turn out well for the American people when that Lot is in hiding.

An alignment of Communists with IslamoCommunists...

The Obama administration in alignment with the Muslim Brotherhood....whose own rebels used the saarin...

Obama´s stupid move could very well start WWIIII, but then again, that is his plan.

Others say the WMD came from the rebels who are AlQaeda, a faction of the Muslim Brotherhood...France and its president Hollande, who is a communist, is no surprize...People will know you Barack by the company you keep...So far, all we see are COMMUNISTS

Well if Kerry knew that a gas attack was coming in the near future, he could have easily picked up his telephone and called his old dinner partner Assad and warned Assad not to do it. Someone in Congress, during the upcoming debate, should ask why the administration did not do that.

Wasn´t in Hague in England that recently said that the subsequent bombing wiped out any trace of the WMD? How he would know this is anyone´s guess.

And I don´t suppose that this "intel" includes some fact-finding about how the Syrians came to possess their supply of sarin? Of course not - that might vindicate POTUS 43, and we know THAT just can´t be allowed. /s off/

With all that has happened over the past 5yrs it´s no wonder that reasonable people really don´t know who or what to believe when it comes to our government. We are simply fed a steady diet of spin, lies, etc. that the truth is obscured to the point that it´s invisible. However, there are some of us that posses reasonable intelligence and are able piece together bits and pieces and come to see at least some of the truth. Problem is that not enough of us can do that and even more don´t really care. They just want more free "stuff" courtesy of the govmint.

The first vid shown depicted men in Plaid shirts, different patterns, yet al were ironed or pressed. Looked new. the shoes were similar (on the men) No one wore any Muslim garb. their were some women and none wore a hijab.All the bodies were in white shroud and were the same size.
Plus the gassed people were being treated
with what-looked-like water out of a bottle. It was poured over their eyes. and oxygen. At that time for the video it was called a neurotoxin, no name yet.
An agent causing yr nerves to be scrambled I bet is no treated with water or O-2.that treatment is for pepper spray.
I thought that part was phony, andreminded me of the photo-shopping during the intifada by the Pals and the staged vids.

HIs after the accack statement , says that the First Responders supplied hair aND BLOOD SAMPLES THAT CONFIRMED ITS USE. iF SARIN GAS IS USED, ACCORDING TO EVERY TAG ON EVERY NEWS ITEM: (ONE DROP IS DEADLY TO THE PERSON WHO IS IN CONTACT WITH IT.) Would that not make Jonboy an accessory to mas murder?

Deep in the flat and featureless landscape of eastern Ukraine, it is all too ­possible that the outline of World War III is taking shape. Whipped up by the Kremlin ­propaganda machine and led by Russian ­military intelligence, armed men are erecting road blocks, storming police stations and ripping down the country’s flag. They are demolishing not just their own country — bankrupt, ill-run and beleaguered — but also the post-war order that has kept most of Europe and us, here in Britain, safe and free for decades. Vladimir Putin is striking at the heart of the West.

President Obama addressed the White House press corps today, announcing that with the final numbers in, Obamacare´s exchanges have attracted eight million sign-ups -- 35 percent of whom are "under the age of 35," he said. Several elements of his comments were misleading: (1) At first blush, the 35 percent stat is both significant and impressive. As recently as last month, the share of "young invincibles" signing up for plans was struggling in the 25 percent range, far short of the actuarial target of nearly 40 percent. A leap into the mid-30´s, while still shy of the goal, would constitute a major step, and would bode well for the risk pools'

Second, the Obama administration, clearly embarrassed by these lavish and frequent family vacations, stonewalls the release of records at every turn.

Plenty of time though to round up the dough to build it somewhere. Figure they need Solyndra-style money, at least $500 million. The last two presidents – Bill Clinton and George W. Bush -- built their legacy edifices totally with private money. [Snip] However, Obama supporters have a different take. They think taxpayers should put up $100 million in public money for Obama´s library.

Less than 16 hours after Chelsea Clinton announced she was pregnant, a lot of major news outlets started staring into the crystal ball of Chelsea’s womb, wondering what this currently floating zygotic multicellular being meant for the prospects of Hillary Clinton’s 2016 campaign, which is also a floating, zygotic, multicellular being. Their answer: The immaculately conceived Clinton child could mean everything. And no, it’s not just the fact that having a grandchild could be personally fulfilling to Hillary and Bill (mazel tov, by the way), or that a cute baby would be a sweet cherry on top of Hillary’s already

The first step is admitting… It was a simple question to someone accustomed to much tougher ones: What was her proudest achievement as secretary of state? But for a moment, Hillary Rodham Clinton, appearing recently before a friendly audience at a women’s forum in Manhattan, seemed flustered.(Snip)So…no definitive successes and some clear-cut failures. And that’s the generous New York Times assessment. The Democrat fantasy story about Mrs. Clinton paints her as strong and accomplished on her own. In reality, this is a woman who is professionally defined almost entirely by two men in her life, both of whom happen to have

We know something else, too. These investigations
