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.

    Here is another good one.

    The US is allied with the Saud family (and with their friends, the royal families of Qatar, Kuwait, UAE, Bahrain, and Oman). Russia is allied with the leaders of Syria – as Russia had earlier been allied with Mossadegh in Iran, Arbenz in Guatemala, Allende in Chile, Hussein in Iraq, Gaddafi in Libya, and Yanukovych in Ukraine (all of whom except Syria’s Ba’ath Party, the US has successfully overthrown).

    I am going to have to stop quoting before I exceed the bounds of fair use of the article. You just have to go online to read the article yourself.

    The more I read this article, the more startling information comes out.

    the CIA’s first coup had been not just planned but was carried out in 1949 in Syria, overthrowing there a democratically elected leader, in order to enable a pipeline for the Sauds’ oil to become built through Syria into the largest oil market, Europe; and, construction of the pipeline started the following year.
