“The first U.S. official told CNN the intelligence assessment shows the attack was ordered at the “highest levels” of the regime. That official declined to specifically say whether al-Assad ordered the attack but did not rule it out. ‘We are not saying Assad himself had his finger on the button. But he is responsible for the stockpile and any attack like this would have to have been approved at the highest levels,’ he said. He rejected the notion the evidence of regime involvement was circumstantial.” Now, Syria must disprove it.
The ultimate evil of a Stasi, a NSA, or a CIA spying and listening to all communications, is that they can put words in your mouth, which you might deny, but with which the State will incriminate and destroy you. That the government or its agencies lie should be no surprise. http://www.truthinjustice.org/FBI-crime-lab.htm With the “evidence” presented by Kerry or Obama, there is no chance “to confront the witnesses.” You must trust what a US government agency generates.
False evidence presented to a gullible public is the M.O. of most governments. A famous example was in Stalin’s show trials, where ardent true believer communists were convicted of plotting against communism. “In the Indictment of the trial of the Old Bolsheviks Pyatakov, Radek, Sokolnikov, Serebriakov, Muralov and others, it states: ‘The investigation has established that LD Trotsky entered into negotiations with one of the leaders of the German National Socialist Party with a view to waging a joint struggle against the Soviet Union…The principles of this agreement, as Trotsky related, were finally elaborated and adopted during Trotsky’s meeting with Hitler’s deputy, Hess…” “Khrushchev finally reveal[ed] that the Trials were in fact f[r]ame-ups.”
Right now, we get US government confirmations by unidentified and unquestionable government hacks that the Syrian army used the poison gas, not the rebels. “Last Wednesday, in the hours after a horrific chemical attack east of Damascus, an official at the Syrian Ministry of Defense exchanged panicked phone calls with a leader of a chemical weapons unit, demanding answers for a nerve agent strike that killed more than 1,000 people. Those conversations were overheard by U.S. intelligence services, The Cable has learned.” Were those the same intelligence agencies and their hacks which confirmed WMD in Iraq? Did those agencies tell Susan Rice that the video incited the mob to attack in Benghazi?
Those poor dumb Syrians weren’t aware that electronic communications were being monitored world-wide and foolishly allowed their plans to be intercepted. How come those rebels keep losing to the Syrian army, when their enablers have complete intelligence about all planned Syrian army acts?
The Stalin Show trials have been replaced with the Obama Trials, where the defendants, here Syria, are found guilty by Obama and punished summarily by Obama. (Summary judgement is used by US judges to dispense with a trial, because the judge has determined, without any witnesses or defense presented, that the facts are irrefutable and a trial unnecessary for his final decreed judgement.) Why is the word of NSA or the CIA of what was communicated deemed fact, when it is easily manipulated or a total lie. Why did the framers with the sixth amendment demand the ability to confront witnesses and a public trial? At least, Stalin held a public trial where the false evidence was presented. Did framers envision a President as a secret judge and jury, and the executioner with drones of American citizens? Does absolute power always corrupt?
Who is next? Obama’s government has revealed: “Not only was it implied that Evangelical Christianity is as dangerous as a terrorist organization, but it was at the top of the list of threats,” which included: Evangelical Christianity, Ultra-Orthodox Jews, Christian Identity, Catholicism, Fundamentalist Church of Jesus Christ of Latter Day Saints, and with“Islamophobia” was also listed as a form of religious extremism.
Once, Obama came for the Syrians, and pronounced his summary judgement after a secret trial held among his advisers. The basic lie is that the government is better qualified to run your life. Another lie you must tell yourself, is that you ought trust your government with its data, what it says others said and what it will say you said. Stalin is dead, but his spirit goes marching on in government.
