The Syrian Government May Not Be The Culprit In The Sarin Attacks

The Alternet has an interview Exclusive Interview: Seymour Hersh Dishes on Saudi Oil Money Bribes and the Killing of Osama Bin Laden.

A wide-ranging interview tied to his new book, “The Killing of Osama Bin Laden.”

At the end of the interview there is a discussion about our doing the destruction of the SYrian Government’s arsenal of sarin weapons under the agreement reached between Syria, Russia, and the USA.

Guess what else we know from the forensic analysis we have (we had all the missiles in their arsenal). Nothing in their arsenal had anything close to what was on the ground in Ghouta. A lot of people I know, nobody’s going to go on the record, but the people I know said we couldn’t make a connection, there was no connection between what was given to us by Bashar and what was used in Ghouta. That to me is interesting. That doesn’t prove anything, but it opens up a door to further investigation and further questioning.


Seymour Hersh Says Hillary Approved Sending Libya’s Sarin to Syrian Rebels 2

Strategic Culture has the article Seymour Hersh Says Hillary Approved Sending Libya’s Sarin to Syrian Rebels. This is a compilation of some old articles and some new ones. I’ll excerpt the first paragraph whose links I checked that refer to the previous sarin gas incident.

The great investigative journalist Seymour Hersh, in two previous articles in the London Review of Books («Whose Sarin?» and «The Red Line and the Rat Line») has reported that the Obama Administration falsely blamed the government of Syria’s Bashar al-Assad for the sarin gas attack that Obama was trying to use as an excuse to invade Syria; and Hersh pointed to a report from British intelligence saying that the sarin that was used didn’t come from Assad’s stockpiles.

I am going to post as a sepaarate post the artcle linked to in this later excerpt.

As I went back to the Strategic Culture article, I realized that I had been sidetracked in reading the Alternet article. There may even be worse stuff later on in the article. I am going to post the Alternet article, and then go back to look at the rest of the Strategic Culture article.

There is so much more in the original article and the links that I just don’t have the time to track it all down. I’ll have to pass the relay baton to someone else.
