On Tuesday, it was reported that some of the Syrian rebel movement have admitted that they were behind the chemical weapons attack on August 22nd near Damascus, which has been blamed on the Assad regime with no evidence, despite Obama saying there is.
Despite the evidence, or better yet the lack of evidence, and admission from these rebels, the Obama administration persistently claims that the Assad regime was behind the attack.
Secretary of State John Kerry claimed that the U.S. government knows that Assad was behind the attack, and Obama did an even more convincing, bold-faced lying speech saying much of the same.
“We know that for three days before the attack, the Syrian regime’s chemical weapons personnel were on the ground in the area, making preparations,” Kerry said.
Kerry continued, “we know that the Syrian regime elements were told to prepare for the attack by putting on gas masks and taking precautions associated with chemical weapons. We know that these were specific instructions.”
“We know where the rockets were launched from, and at what time. We know where they landed, and when. We know rockets came only from regime-controlled areas and went only to opposition-controlled or contested neighborhoods.”
However, U.S. intelligence community members have stated that they don’t know for sure who was behind the attack.
