On November 14, 2016, Georgetown’s Foreign Service School, its Center for Contemporary Arab Studies (CCAS), and its Middle East-North Africa (MENA) Forum showed the Netflix propaganda film “The White Helmets”.  Following the film (which the Helmets had shot), there was an extremely biased  panel discussion about current Syrian events.

The motion picture, well-received by the audience, offered a carefully-edited account of the White Helmets, an alleged civil defense and rescue group. No member had any kind of background involving rescue work.  Indeed, they all seemed to be either butchers, bakers, or candlestick makers.  One alleged he had been a terrorist but had reformed and now wanted to help his fellow countrymen.  The film depicted the White Helmets rescuing infants at great risk while under fire from the Syrian government and Russia.  The only training they received was in Turkey, coming from classes and drills which the Anatolian government provided.

After the picture, the CCAS Director, Osama Abi-Mershed, praising the White Helmets’ work…

Two Kurdish Members of KurdISIS Killed in Coalition Airstrikes

(A few of us have been saying for a while that the Kurds were serving as the “ISIS” destabilization campaign in Iraq and Syria in an effort to secure for themselves a Greater Kurdistan payday. That’s why “ISIS” always leaves a city they terrorize just in time for the Kurds to move in and occupy it. Penny saw an article that seems to lend more credence to our conclusions.)

UPDATE:Yup, ISIS just walked away from 8 Syrian villages. US backed ISIS hands 8 Syrian villages over to US backed Kurdish militias PKK/YPG.

from Base News (H/T Penny)

Two Kurdish members of Islamic State have been killed in southwestern Kirkuk, said the Kirkuk police directorate in a statement on Wednesday.

The statement revealed that Abu Ayoub al-Kurdi and Smo Pshtiwan Talabani were eliminated by the US-led coalition warplanes in Hawija, where at least six IS positions were targeted.

Abu Bara al-Mosuli, the IS commander in charge of the weapons cache in Hawija, was also killed in the airstrikes.

US Proxies in Syria Violated Ceasefire ‘to Prolong War Until Clinton Presidency’

from Sputnik International

… Almassian said that recent attacks in Syria demonstrate a lack of political will in Washington for a ceasefire, and splits in the US administration on the matter.

“After the latest attack in Deir-Ez-Zor and also the recent developments in Aleppo, by attacking the humanitarian convoy, it becomes clear that there are parties who are able to damage this ceasefire, and these people are within the American administration itself. These are people who support Hillary Clinton and they are not interested in a peaceful solution now,” Almassian said. While Us Secretary of State John Kerry wants to end Barack Obama’s presidency with a peace deal in Syria, the White House is being thwarted by the US defense department and its allies in the region, who “want to prolong this war in Syria until Hillary Clinton comes to power.”

“One of the preconditions (for a ceasefire) is that the American administration should be united behind this ceasefire, not that the Pentagon is against and the White House is with the ceasefire. So obviously, there is no consensus within the American administration itself.”

About That UN Aid Convoy that was Attacked in Syria and the Video of the FSA “Barrel Bomb” Launcher Driving by the Convoy

by Scott Creighton

On Monday, in between endless reports about the terrorist distraction attacks in Jersey and New York, CNN, MSNBC, Fox “News” and the other corporate media speckled in a few stories about how Russia and Syria were now the responsible parties for the collapse of the Syrian cease-fire agreement because one of the two of them used airstrikes to attack a UN humanitarian aid convoy after it crossed the conflict line in the Big Orem area of the Syrian city of Aleppo.

Nothing was said all day Monday about the US “accidentally” attacking Syrian troops on Saturday, killing 63 of them, in support of “ISIS”

No. By then, the story was all about how it “must have been” the Syrians or the Russians because it was “definitely” an air attack from war planes and the US says they didn’t have any in the area. Ergo… it “must have been them”

Today the story is hardly mentioned at all except for the occasional moment of outrage about Syria dropping “barrel bombs” on the convoy. The air raid with bombers has now turned into Syrian helicopters dropping “barrel bombs”

Well, funny thing is, the Russians and the Syrians absolutely deny attacking the convoy and it would seem that the trucks were attacked via mortars, not military grade missiles. Large mortars. Kinda like these perhaps.

This is a member of the Free Syrian Army, from the Tawhid Brigade to be more specific. He is working on a homemade mortar. This is what is called a “barrel bomb” in our main stream media, only they never show the Free Syrian Army guys making them. Here’s another group prepping the “barrel bombs”

US Bombing of Syrian Soldiers Killed Cease-fire Deal

Reuters

A Syrian ceasefire brokered by the United States and Russia was in deep trouble on Monday as a rebel official said it had practically failed and signaled insurgents were preparing for a full resumption of fighting.

Already widely violated since it took effect a week ago, the ceasefire came under added strain at the weekend when Russia said jets from the U.S.-led coalition against Islamic State killed more than 60 Syrian soldiers in eastern Syria.

US “Moderate” Opposition and al Qaeda-linked Jabhat al-Nusra Merge In Preparation for Major Offensive Says Russian Military Official

Tass News Agency

The US and the Syrian opposition groups backed by Washington have not met any commitments under the Geneva deal on Syria, senior Russian military official Sergey Rudskoy told reporters on Monday.

“The United States and the groups of the so-called healthy opposition controlled by it have not met any of the commitments undertaken as part of the Geneva agreements. No separation of the moderate opposition and Jabhat al-Nusra has taken place,” said Rudskoy, who heads the main operations department of Russia’s General Staff.

“Moreover, we see not separation but the merge of units of moderate opposition and Jabhat al-Nusra and their preparation for joint offensive,” Rudskoy said.

All Hell Breaks Loose Last Night in New York and Syria So Obama Goes Ahead with Race-baiting Campaign Event for Hillary

by Scott Creighton

priority-1

With bombs going off and being found in New York (8:30pm EST) and an emergency UN Security Council meeting (7:30 pm EST) called to discuss the Pentagon openly attacking the Syrian military yesterday (which killed 63 Syrian soldiers and allowed “ISIS” to surge after the attack) President Obama went forward with his scheduled speech at the Congressional Black Caucus Foundation conference in which he angrily instructed black people to get out the vote for Hillary. He told them he would be “insulted” if they didn’t come out for the corrupt war-monger this year like they did for him in 2008 and 2012 when Obama represented the idea of “CHANGE” and supposedly opposed interventionism across the world.

After the initial explosion a second device, a pressure cooker with a phone taped to it, was found. The validity of that device remains in question as it was not detonated at the site but rather taken back to be investigated and it supposedly had a note written on a piece of paper found with it.

Bombs going off in New York city, a possible war unfolding in the Middle East… and Obama’s primary objective is to go out and angrily instruct black people that they need to vote for one of the most disliked war-mongering candidates in the history of American politics? The same candidate who’s previous campaign produced the Birther movement?

Is this a joke?

Nope. No joke.
