White House “Intelligence Assessment” Is No-Such-Thing – Shows Support for Al-Qaeda

from Moon of Alabama

The Trump White House published three and a half pages of accusations against the governments of Syria and Russia. These are simple white pages with no header or footer, no date, no classification or declassification marks, no issuing agency and no signatures. It is indiscernible who has written them.

U.S. media call this a Declassified U.S. Report on Chemical Weapons Attack. It is no such thing.

It starts with “The United States is confident that the Syrian government conducted a chemical weapon attack, …”

The U.S. “is confident”, it does not “know”, it does not have “proof” – it is just “confident”.

The whole paper contains only seven paragraphs that are allegedly a “Summary of the U.S. intelligence community assessment” on the issue. The seven paragraphs are followed by eight(!) paragraphs that try to refute the Russian and Syrian statements on the issue. Some political fluff makes up the sorry rest…

  1. The more belligerent the Empire becomes, the sloppier it becomes. Even children can fabricate more plausible lies than the Empire can. However I suppose that what matters is not plausibility, but repetition. The more people echo the “gas attacks” lie, the less proof it needs.

    • Incidentally the M.O.A. blog mentions M.I.T. science professor Theodore A. Postol, who agrees with me that ballistic missile “defense” systems like “Iron Dome” don’t work, and never have. (I said ballistic missiles, not cruise missiles, which are easily shot down.) Their purpose is to serve as propaganda, and to lavish government dollars on military contractors, and on things like the “Missile Defense Agency,” which gets paid for doing nothing. This bullshit continues because most people cling to a childish belief that the best way to stop a bullet in flight is to shoot at it with another bullet. As a result, the MDA parasites collect billions, while society mocks single parents on Food Stamps, for example.

      In any society, the richer you are, the more parasitical you are. The more you are a “taker,” rather than a “maker.”

      • In the rigged tests (they knew where and when the incoming missile would be) US anti-missile were less than 50% successful.

        • I have studied this topic for years, and I contend that the success rate was, is, and will remain zero. Anything above zero has been fabricated. The scam continues because it’s lucrative. Countless billions go to companies that make the useless “defense” missiles, and to agencies like the MDA. This scam is one reason why we constantly hear about the (non-existent) “threat” from Iranian and North Korean missiles. The General Accountability Office knows that the “defense” missiles don’t work, but the boondoggle continues because some of the loot is kicked back to politicians, and because average people want to believe that it’s not a scam. (continued)

          • For example, the “Iron Dome” bullshit is a point of pride for Israelis. If you tell them the truth, they scream “holocaust!” and call you an anti-Semite. No one outside Israel will buy the “Iron Dome” trash, since it’s obviously a lie. I have studied this topic because [1] ballistic missile “defense” is a case of the emperor’s new clothes, and [2] I hate parasites who get billions of federal dollars, while society condemns average people who get only a few pennies in government benefits.

            See for yourself. Google the words “missile defense boondoggle.”
