Footage of chemical
attack in Syria is fraud

RT News (Moscow, Russia), by Staff

Original Article

Posted By:NYC RAL, 9/6/2013 9:47:25 PM

There is proof the footage of the alleged chemical attack in Syria was fabricated, Mother Agnes Mariam el-Salib, mother superior of St. James Monastery in Qara, Syria, told RT. She says she is about to submit her findings to the UN. Mother Agnes, a catholic nun, who has been living in Syria for 20 years and has been reporting actively on what has been going on in the war-ravaged country, says she carefully studied the video featuring allegedly victims of the chemical weapons attack in the Syrian village of Guta in August and now questions its authenticity. In her interview

Americans are about the most manipulated people On Earth. 51% of us are so dumbed down that The MSM and the other "powers that be" can lead them where they want like a lamb.

The other 49% Of us don´t know what to do about it. The RINOS and faKe conservatives have sold us down the river.

It´s been a while since I studied CBR, but I seem to remember that nerve gas causes, among other things, urination and defecation. Strange, but I don´t remember seeing such in the pictures of the gassed victims. Oh well, I´m sure that John Kerry can explain this.

I hope this site is allowed...I´d like to see confirmation from others but after reading the entire article I fall on the side of Mother Agnes.

What she says makes sense and is consistent with other reports of mass murders of civilians by rebels.

Her comments on the timing of the attack and the rapid response of video along with the lack of identification of specific victims is interesting.

Bottom line..."Trust but verify."

McCain says he can understand the cynicism and war weariness ~ but can he understand that it´s not that so much as the fact that he and Obama and Kerry, and the rest of that crowd, actually want to ally the USA to a bunch of people who the world can do without ~ that´s AlQaida and a host of other criminal conspiracies.

After this regime ends we´ll probably have to round these guys up and put them on trial for warcrimes.

Sad to say that the Russian press is more believable than the MSM. Is this story true? Good question. On a scale of 1-100 I´d give it maybe a 30. As for the reports coming out categorically blaming Assad for the gas attack maybe a 15. How come no reports of the atrocities committed by the rebels? Why no reports of the killing of Christians by the rebels. I´m with Palin on this one, let Allah sort things out. Or is the whole thing about natural gas and who gets to build (or not build) a pipeline through Syria. Russia and Iran don´t want it, Saudi Arabia and Qatar do - hmmmm.

None of this is relevant. We are not the world´s policemen. Syria is simply not our business. Let Mr. Putin deal with his client state.

Now Iran is quite another matter that we must somehow deal with. Hopefully we can avoid war but still apply military pressure to stop their nuclear program.

Who to believe? One would like to think our "leaders" know much more than we do and we should trust them. But since John Kerry is getting his intel from a 26 year old´s op-ed I figure I know about as much as he does. So I´ll just go with the nun until further notice. Now if a priest comes out for the other side, I´ll have to rethink it.

All gun-ho to bomb Syria--------what was his response about FOUR (4) dead Americans at the hands of islamic jihadist terrorists?????
Benghazi was blamed on a video as well.

McCain has admitted O´Brady, the 26 yr old advocate for Syrian aggression made the trip to Syria with him when he met with the terrorists. Remember that photo-shoot????

Why are nukes being transferred from Dyess AFB in Abilene, Tx. with NO WRITTEN AUTHORIZATION, being sent to the Carolinas and onto Florida on the same day Lindsay Graham tells his constituents in a speech about a possible nuke attack for his area from Syria could happen? False Flag, anyone?????

The most recent Doomsday clock from the overview of last years events at the website http://thebulletin.org/ reads: "IT IS 5 MINUTES TO MIDNIGHT" I think with all of this we may be looking at a second hand and not the one used to track the minutes. God help us if our politicians start to press the buttons and begin to lob missiles back and forth. Write/call/email the Prez and company. Our future looks very dark if they begin.

I saw one film purportedly taken right after the attack. Some adults are running round with cloths over their mouths, screaming and yelling. Their children are doing no such thing, but they are very frightened and crying. Something about that video bothers me. My family has asthmatics in it. When the asthma hits, except for wheezing, no one has any energy for yelling and screaming, you are just trying so hard to breath. I´m assuming a gas attack would have similar reactions and that is not what I was seeing. Perhaps I´m wrong.

What #20 said. IMO, the "media" in the middle east along with the "msm" here, has been faking videos and pictures of innocents being slaughtered by others for years, including accusing the U.S. of the same atrocities. There is NOTHING obama would not go along with in order to look like a true "leader" and a military expert. It has come to the point that a former kgb member is more believable than the "president" of these United States.

Palestinian muslims have been faking deaths at the hands of Israelis for decades. In some cases, the bodies of dead Palestinians rise up, laugh, walk away, when the cameras remained running. In other episodes, the children shown, change positions for reshooting of scenes.
I don´t know what is going on in Syria, and I don´t know who is telling the truth. But the last people I would believe about anything are Barack the Incompetent, Biden the Brain damaged, and Kerry the Creep.

The nun in Syria is not the only one that says this is a lie. She´s just another person on the growing list of people that agree. Apparently BHO is not satisfied with fundamentally changing us he has to be out there annoying the rest of the world, the Muslim World. The rest of the world can´t believe we are allowing him to be our President. I can´t either. We have lost our collective mind.

Some have said that other footage of the victims looks strangely like footage of victims gassed by Saddam. There have also been reports of Palestinians shooting footage of a child or a man shot by Israelis only to have the person get up and walk away when the camera is turned off. And, this civil war affects us how? So many other atrocities in the world and we pick this one to be outraged about? Very suspicious.

Nuns might have political motives but breaking the 9th commandment "thou shall not bear false witness" to accomplish that is probably right out. I have to judge her a credible and honest witness. More and more evidence piling up indicates Assad was framed. That doesn´t make him a good guy, just better than the rebels who massacre innocents in order to blame Assad.

I noticed in some of the "mortuary" still shots that many of the victims´s heads were not wrapped up and others were. I think those whose heads were unwrapped might have simply been acting for the camera. Who knows if there were really bodies in the bags whose heads were covered up.

All I know is that there´s a lot more going on here than a chemical attack. Rather than looking at the attack, look at what the battlefield would look like after a devastating blow from us. Would Syria be able to attack Israel from Golan? Would Hezbollah from Lebanon without Syrian support? Israel has said the time to strike Iran is nearly on us. Could this be the first salvo? Just a thought.

My very first thought was how clean and neat they all were; all the visible faces calm and composed - no half-open eyes, no slack mouths, no discolored skin.

Speaking about fake videos and pictures, one thing that caught my eye was seeing all those people in those videos and picture wearing cloth masks. Now, as a former military person, I´ve undergone numerous CBR (chemical, biological, and radiological) warfare training, including being in a room full of tear gas just to see how it acts, but more importantly, to teach how effective your gas mask is. And one point to make here is that a cloth mask will NOT stop or filter out gasses that have been developed for mass warfare. It just isn´t going to do so. These gasses are VERY powerful and are designed to penetrate just about any material except a mask who´s filter is specifically designed to filter said gasses. And a lot of them can be absorbed through the skin as well. That´s why we have special suits. So, right now I´m willing to give some credence to the nun´s story. Remember, al-Qaeda is part of the make-up of the "rebels". And I don´t put anything against them.

#19 - yes, and wouldn´t it be beautifully ironic if the use of this video begins the unraveling of the whole coverup of Benghazi as Benghazi is revisited in depth -

and even IF the video is authentic and Assad is responsible, why is Obama going to do something now in response to 1,429 people being killed compared to the 100,000 already killed?

The invasion advocates are using WWII and pre-WWII tragedies to evoke fear and to push buttons in the public mind -

Why the push now to invade - to somehow help the Muslim Brotherhood in Egypt to turn this all around in their favor?

If they could get weapons to them - sort of like Iran Contra - but without it becoming any kind of scandal because no one in the press is going to ask about MB influence - even with the article written by the MB lobbyist. Where are the reporters and politicians that investigated Iran Contra?

Just now heard on CNN (Don Lemon talking to Nic Robertson) that because there were not separate facilities available for the women, many more women (and possible children - if I heard correctly - girl children)?

So, even as their people are being attacked supposedly, they aren´t going to help their own womenfolk because there weren´t separate facilities available? The disproportionate number of men shown on that floor (in their wet clothes, awaiting further treatment) is because the women didn´t make it at all?

Something is wrong with that -

if this was truly an attack by the regime, why didn´t the rebels help their own loved ones, regardless of their sex - is their religion so inculcated that even in the midst of suffering, love for loved ones does not prevail?

Or indeed, it is all faked -

I wonder if they will be offended that our soldiers and sailors and airmen being sent in are women and men, mixed in together.

For years, both Robert Spencer and Pamela Geller, have consistently reported on rebel caused al kaeda deaths, brutalities and burnings against millions of victims in Syria, Egypt, everwhere. Our corrupted U.S. Diane Sawyer TV news media knows and covers nothing about this epidemic of inhuman political crimes. Suddenly, we are to believe that Assad committed some act already practiced daily by all Islamic supremacist rebels, to provide a fake war for a failed imposter/impersonator occupant of the White House? Is it WAG THE DOG? To hide Benghazi, Obamacide, IRS NSA alien organizing, to hide these failed dishonest events by creating a war out of thin air, in the same manner that our government prints money (QE2) out of thin air? The only believable government element is the RINO DEMO War Machine, silently on the alert to support the imposter.

In a new study, researchers found an increased risk of multiple sclerosis (MS) among women who have taken oral contraceptives. However, the findings do not mean women should stop using birth control, the researchers say. Utilizing membership data from Kaiser Permanente Southern California, researchers analyzed the health records of 305 women aged 14 to 48 who were diagnosed with MS or its precursor, clinically isolated syndrome (CIS), between 2008 and 2011. They looked at the women’s birth control use up to three years prior to the onset of MS symptoms. Overall, researchers found a 30 percent increased risk of developing

A man who essentially came back to life after his heart stopped for nearly 45 minutes is now telling the story of his astounding near-death experience. According to FOX 4’s sister station, FOX 8 in Cleveland, Brian Miller suffered a massive heart attack and seemed fine until the next day when he began experiencing Ventricular Fibrillation, which is a usually deadly fluttering pattern of the heart where blood is no longer being pumped through the body. Without treatment, the condition can kill a person in just a few minutes. After about 45 minutes of Miller being without a heart-rate, pulse,

As hundreds of tourists and art lovers enjoyed the Guggenheim´s evening of free admission last night, scores of activists briefly took control of the museum, blaring a bugle, dropping banners from the spiral balconies, and raining leaflets on visitors. The activists, affiliates of the Gulf Labor group, were calling attention to the construction of a new Guggenheim branch on the artificial Saadiyat Island in Abu Dhabi. The emirate is pouring money into a massive project to bring western cultural institutions to the island, including the Louvre, and the controversial New York University branch.

After President Barack Obama bowed to critics in November and allowed people with canceled health insurance policies to keep their coverage for another year, the White House quickly hit the spin cycle. In a telephone briefing with reporters that same day, senior administration officials said their “enforcement discretion” allowed them to tweak the Affordable Care Act to ensure that it would be implemented with minimal disruption. Previous administrations had done the same thing with complicated new laws, they said, and the slow-motion rollout of the sprawling health care law was sure to encounter more problems

Abortion proponents push for easy access to abortion, deemphasizing its after-affects to the point they absolutely refuse to acknowledge post-abortion depression, which further incapacitates those actually living through it. This is such a tragedy. Charlotte Dawson, RIP, was born in New Zealand but achieved fame in Australia as a model and a judge on Australia’s Next Top Model. From The Telegraph, February 23: In the end it seemed like the final, inevitable episode of a tragic soap opera: Charlotte Dawson -- the model, TV star and social crusader who spent many of her adult years battling depression -- ended her

There’s a new exorcist in town. Four decades after the profession gained popular prominence in the gory horror flick “The Exorcist,” the Catholic Church is training a new legion of demon-fighting priests. The Rev. David Fleming of St. Pius X Catholic Church in Urbandale is one of 50 U.S. priests recently chosen to train in the rite of exorcism. Fleming was named the official exorcist of the Diocese of Des Moines. It is the church’s first effort in the United States to coordinate a “comprehensive and systematic formation process for this particular ministry,” Fleming told the Catholic Mirror, Des Moines’

Austin, Texas, is supposed to be weird. It is not supposed to be a police state. But take a look at this video, taken downtown near the University of Texas campus and posted Thursday. In the video, a pair of police officers can be seen standing over a woman who is sitting on the sidewalk. She speaks to the videographer across the street, telling him that she hasn’t done anything wrong. The officers cuff her and lead her to their squad car to take her to the police station. At that point, she begins to scream at full volume that

“Let us give each other a spiritual hug.” The leader of the Catholic Church recorded a special message about Christian unity. This unusual and unofficial video of Pope Francis discussing Christian unity (and speaking English) was recorded on an iPhone for the Kenneth Copeland Ministries, a group of Pentecostals meeting in the United States. In the video, which was posted on YouTube and not officially released by the Vatican, Pope Francis discusses the historical divisions between Christians and expresses hope that all men and women of faith would be able to move forward.

NEW YORK – New York City Mayor Bill de Blasio´s official vehicles were spotted breaking several traffic laws on Thursday, just two days after he laid out a sweeping traffic safety plan that included harsh restrictions on reckless drivers. De Blasio was in the front passenger seat of the lead SUV of a two-vehicle caravan that was captured on video speeding, running through a pair of stop signs and not signaling when changing lanes. The footage, which aired on WCBS-TV, was taken as de Blasio returned to City Hall after a news conference in Queens. The mayor´s press office deferred

FT LAUDERDALE - A Davie woman plans to sue the Broward Sheriff’s Office after she was forced to spend the night in jail for using her cellphone to record a deputy during a traffic stop. Last March, 33-year old Brandy Berning was pulled over by Lt. William O’Brien after she reportedly drove in the HOV lane at the wrong time, according to The Sun-Sentinel. As O’Brien approached her vehicle, Berning hit the record button on her phone. She recorded about 15 seconds of the conversation before telling O’Brien that he was being recorded. That’s when the deputy told her she

For Hillary Clinton, having her own baby grandchild to kiss on the campaign trail, could be one of the biggest boosts to her possible presidential election campaign. Although the former Secretary of State and First Lady has not said if she will run in 2016, the arrival of her first grandchild will soften her image, analysts have said. While Chelsea only revealed her pregnancy on Thursday, supporters of her mother have already started cooing over a possible baby in the White House. With the Clintons having a near-royal status in the U.S., the announcement of a new arrival due this fall has sent

That was quite a victory dance President Obama did Thursday while claiming Obamacare is “working” because eight million people have now supposedly signed up for the health care program. He even indulged in some less-than-subtle mockery of Republicans - and by extension the majority of Americans who have disapproved of Obamacare since before it became law. "The repeal debate is and should be over,” Obama said, taking a dig at Republicans who are “going through, you know, the stages of grief … anger and denial and all that stuff …” But a president who is viewed by most Americans as less

GREENSBORO, Ga. — Golf holes the size of pizzas. Soccer balls on the back nine. A mulligan on every hole. These are some of the measures — some would say gimmicks — that golf courses across the country have experimented with to stop people from quitting the game. Golf has always reveled in its standards and rich tradition. But increasingly a victim of its own image and hidebound ways, golf has lost five million players in the last decade, according to the National Golf Foundation, with 20 percent of the existing 25 million golfers apt to quit in the next few years. People under 35 have especially spurned the game, saying it takes too

In a speech earlier this week, Lisa O. Monaco, President Barack Obama’s assistant for homeland security and counterterrorism, insisted that American parents must be vigilant because their “confrontational” children could be on the verge of becoming terrorists. Monaco’s full, prepared text is available here. She presented the speech, entitled “Countering Violent Extremism and the Power of Community,” at Harvard University’s Kennedy School of Government on April 15. Monaco began her remarks by eloquently describing the lives tragically lost last year during the Boston Marathon bombings. Interestingly, the Harvard grad failed to mention the religion or the motive of brothers Dzhokhar and Tamerlan

Hi, everybody. For millions of Americans, this time of year holds great meaning. Earlier this week, we hosted a Passover Seder at the White House, and joined Jewish families around the world in their re-tellings of the story of the Exodus and the victory of faith over oppression. And this Sunday, Michelle, Malia, Sasha, and I will join our fellow Christians around the world in celebrating the Resurrection of Christ, the salvation he offered the world, and the hope that comes with the Easter season. These holy days have their roots in miracles that took place long ago. And yet, they still inspire us, guide us, and strengthen us today. They remind us of our

Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid said Thursday that a family of dissident ranchers and their supporters in his home state of Nevada are ´domestic terrorists,´ citing this week´s standoff with the federal government´s Bureau of Land Management. Cliven Bundy has refused to pay grazing fees for land where his hundreds of cattle roam every day. The land is owned by the federal government, which says he owes more than $1 million. Bundy, however, insists that since his family has been using the land since the 1870s, Uncle Sam can´t collect the grazing fees. A tense standoff developed this week after

WASHINGTON--Rushing to an afternoon vote last month, Sen. Ted Cruz hopped the underground tram to the U.S. Capitol from his office across the street. The Texan planted his black ostrich cowboy boots in the middle of the small subway car without getting so much as a nod from the other senators--Republican or Democrat--amiably chatting or huddled in their seats. Mr. Cruz finds himself standing alone a lot these days. His response to the cold shoulders: "The establishment despised Ronald Reagan" before he became president, "but the people loved him." For the 43-year-old Republican, the Reagan name illuminates his political life´s

If the Rev. John DeBonville could preach a sermon to lift the souls of churchgoers across America, his message would be simple: Stop dressing so tacky for church. DeBonville has heard about the “come as you are” approach to dressing down for Sunday service, but he says the Sabbath is getting too sloppy. When he scans the pews of churches, DeBonville sees rows of people dressed in their Sunday worst. They saunter into church in baggy shorts, flip-flop sandals, tennis shoes and grubby T-shirts. Some even slide into the pews carrying coffee in plastic foam containers as if they’re going to Starbucks. “It’s like

Bill joined “House of Cards” star Kevin Spacey at the Revlon Rainforest Fund Benefit Concert at Carnegie Hall Thursday, joking of Spacey’s Machiavellian character, “When I was president people accused me of murder all the time, made a show of investigating. Spacey’s president for 15 minutes and he gets away with murder.” Spacey, who sang during the event with Sting, Stephen Stills and James Taylor, also showed off his Johnny Carson impression, taking a swipe at the coverage of Flight

President Obama asserts that 8 million people have signed up for Obamacare, as though that were something to be proud of. In fact, Obamacare has always been a fiasco from a fiscal perspective–a black hole of subsidies and expanded Medicaid, with largely fictitious mechanisms in place to pay for it. As the number of subsidized participants grows, the disaster gets worse. Charles Blahous explains: Our national discussion…is missing the truly significant story here; what is unfolding before our eyes is a colossal fiscal disaster, poised to haunt legislators and taxpayers for decades to come. It is quite possible that the ACA is

“On the third day, he rose again.” That line, from the Nicene Creed, is a foundational statement of Christian belief. It declares that three days after Jesus died on the cross, he was resurrected, a glimmer of the eternal life promised to believers. It’s the heart of the Easter story in seven little words. But how that statement is interpreted is the source of some of the deepest rifts in Christianity — and a stumbling block for some Christians, and more than a few skeptics. Did Jesus literally come back from the dead in a bodily resurrection, as many traditionalist
