The Obama administration confirms Israeli intox


The US Defence Minister Chuck Hagel, the Secretary of State John Kerry, the National Security counsellor Susan Rice and the National Intelligence director James Clapper, held a closed meeting regarding Syria with leaders of Congres, on Thursday August 2013.

According to representative Elliot Engel, who is the Democratic minority leader on the Foreign Affairs Commission, the Obama administration confirmed the interception of a Syrian government communication attesting to it’s responsibility in the chemical attack of August 21st, as revealed by Foreign Policy.

Yet, these ’’interceptions’’ are in fact of Israeli origin [1].

Elliot Engel is a militant Zionist. Member of the US Committee for a Free Lebanon, which organized the ’’Cedar Revolution’’ [2], he drafted, in 2002, the Syria Accountability and Lebanese Sovereignty Restoration Act, authorizing the US president to go to war against Syria without having to pass before Congress. This text, adopted by the Congress itself and signed by George W. Bush, is still in force.
