As President Obama continues to push for a military strike against the Syrian government of Bashar al-Assad, based on his insistence that Syrian forces has used chemical weapons on "women and children," evidence to the contrary continues to mount.
Though this nation's mainstream press will not cover any incident which makes Obama appear foolish and dishonest, the foreign press does not operate under any such restrictions.
The rebels were caught with a "2kg cylinder" of sarin nerve gas.
The paper went on to quote Russian Foreign Minister Sergei Lavrov, as saying:
"I do not rule out that some force may want to use it to say that the "red line" has been crossed and a foreign intervention is needed," the minister said.
Also, in August, a story appeared in Britain's Telegraph describing how one of the groups fighting against the Syrian government, known as 'the Islamic State of Iraq,' (another al-Qaeda-affiliated militia), raided a coastal Alawite village and slaughtered an untold number of civilians.
The Telegraph reported:
"We are still finding people who were killed in their homes, and bodies left in bushes," said Sheikh Mohammed Reda Hatem, an Alawite religious leader in Latakia. "Until now 150 Alawites from the villages have been kidnapped. There are women and children among them. We have lost all contact with them."
Remember, this is who Obama wants our military to support with air strikes, and possibly even ground troops.
Of course, this news does not fit into the 'truth as declared by Obama,' therefore, you will not see it on CNN, MSNBC or even Fox News.
