Knowing the current puppet occupying the White House is willing to use America’s military might to destroy evidence of US war crimes which will knowingly lead to WWIII is well, nothing short of pure diabolical evil.

The T-Room dot us
What if the WMD’s aka chemical weapons reportedly never found in Iraq exist? What if those chemicals were safely ensconced in Syria, then an ally in America’s War on Terror? What if the heated US government “attack” on Syria rhetoric coming out of DC has absolutely nothing to do with O’Bushies “red line” and everything to do with blowing up “evidence” of the Bush Cabal’s “Coalition of the Willing” war crimes?
When the alleged chemical attack on Damascus was reported on August 21, 2013, I asked then “Why would the Syrian government use chemical weapons on it’s own people a few miles from the capitol’s footsteps?”
In the same article I used the letter from General Dempsey to Rep Engel (D) NY, a dual Israeli-American citizen, dated August 19, 2013 to argue the fact Syria wouldn’t use, much less never needed to use chemicals of any kind on its own people let alone the terrorists and mercenaries. You see, up until the 21st, the Syrian Army was kicking ass and routing the thugs out of their country through conventional warfare.
Naturally, I along with the awakened world community was asking – if Syria had no logical motive to inflict such a despicable heinous act of cowardice, then it must have been the Qatari/Saudi Arabia/Turkey/Israel paid for terrorists and mercenaries. But then as the events began to unfold what became extremely curious was, why in the world would the US government, a government that has starved the domestic front for 10 years to fight a nebulous war on terror, all of a sudden flip their support from fighting Al Queda terrorists to using Al Queda’s manufactured information accusing the Assad government as the perpetrator to substantiate an US attack on Syria?
What in the world is going on? It makes no sense. Totally illogical and well, just plain stupid.
Cobbling together the last week’s curious news reports
(Note: all links to articles are posted below by date)
General Dempsey in a response to a letter from Rep Engel dated August 19 stated an attack on Syria “… would not be militarily decisive, but it would commit us decisively to the conflict.”
Then, out of the blue, an alleged chemical attack was being reported on August 21 out of Damascus placing the blame on the Assad government.
If that wasn’t enough to make your head spin, on the morning of August 26, five days after the chemical attack in Syria, a rather queer report was published detailing Holder’s DOJ requesting the court to give immunity for war crimes to Bush Jr., Cheney, Rumsfeld, Wolfowitz, Powell, and Rice. Why all of a sudden would Holder, of all people, file such a request now?
If that wasn’t odd enough, on the morning of August 27 another queer report pops up out of nowhere. This one is from the esteemed Foreign Policy news service titled “CIA files show America Helped Saddam Hussein as He Gassed Iran” and his own people . We learn –
It has been previously reported that the United States provided tactical intelligence to Iraq at the same time that officials suspected Saddam would use chemical weapons. But the CIA documents, which sat almost entirely unnoticed in a trove of declassified material at the National Archives in College Park, Md., combined with exclusive interviews with former intelligence officials, reveal new details about the depth of the United States’ knowledge of how and when Iraq employed the deadly agents. They show that senior U.S. officials were being regularly informed about the scale of the nerve gas attacks. They are tantamount to an official American admission of complicity in some of the most gruesome chemical weapons attacks ever launched.
Top CIA officials, including the Director of Central Intelligence William Casey, a close friend of President Ronald Reagan, were told about the location of Iraqi chemical weapons assembly plants; that Iraq was desperately trying to make enough mustard agent to keep up with frontline demand from its forces; that Iraq was about to buy equipment from Italy to help speed up production of chemical-packed artillery rounds and bombs; and that Iraq could also use nerve agents on Iranian troops and possibly civilians.
Officials were also warned that Iran might launch retaliatory attacks against U.S. interests in the Middle East, including terrorist strikes, if it believed the United States was complicit in Iraq’s chemical warfare campaign. (emphasis added throughout)
Sadly, the US government was complicit in not only supplying illegal chemicals of mass destruction to Saddam, but the US government provided strategic coordinates of where Iranian soldiers were located on the battlefield using American satellite imagery.
There are no words.
Timeline re cap:
August 8, former Military Intelligence Agent Frank Gregory Ford sends out a press release titled “Evidence of American War Crimes Likely Target in Syria
August 19, General Dempsey responds to Rep Engel’s letter making it clear that any strike against Syria “… would not be militarily decisive, but it would commit us decisively to the conflict.”
August 21, an alleged chemical attack was being reported out of Damascus, the capitol of Syria, for which the corporate media, nearly in unison, began to blame the Assad government
August 26, Holder requests immunity for Bush Jr, Cheney, Rumsfeld, Wolfowitz, Powell and Rice for war crimes
August 27, the esteemed Foreign Policy news service reports the CIA helped Saddam Hussein gas the Iranian’s and his own people during the Iraq/Iran war by providing strategic “on the ground” coordinates detailing the location of Iran’s military units on the battlefield using American satellite imagery
August 30, Secretary of State John Kerry uses the Syrian terrorists and mercenaries manufactured imagery to justify to the American people an imminent US strike on Syria
Throughout the week of August 24 – 30, O’Bush took to the airwaves and sold the need to strike Syria by stating as justification the need to protect American national security interests. He assures any who are listening that the strikes will be strategic, the assault will be a day or two, the goal is not to change government and that there will be no boots on the ground.
But again, why is America’s puppet government up in arms about all of this now? Why Syria? Why suddenly request immunity for the Bush Cabal war crimes? Why the out of the blue report detailing the ‘CIA/DOD’ culpability in gassing Iranian’s and Iraqian’s back in the 80’s?
Well, I’m thinking I have found a critical part of the answer thanks to the intrepid investigative journalist, Wayne Madsen. Not all of it but certainly a critical key fact.
Iraq’s 223rd M.I. Battalion
Let me introduce you to former Military Intelligence Agent, Frank Gregory Ford, who was profiled in a Salon article titled “Whitewashing Torture?” on December 8, 2004 –
The 223rd M.I. Battalion was one of the first divisions to enter Iraq after the U.S. “Shock and Awe” aerial bombardment ended, in mid-April 2003. (I also served in that unit in-country from April through October 2003. I met Ford in February 2003, at Fort Bragg, N.C., and continued to stay in contact with him until he was shipped out of the country. I have also since left the military.) The battalion’s mission was to collect counterintelligence. Its agents, highly trained soldiers responsible for force protection and for investigating national security crimes committed against the Army, were divided into small units called Tactical Human Intelligence Teams, or THTs. Every day, these teams went out from their forward operating bases in Iraq and interacted with the local people in an effort to gather critical intelligence on such matters as the location of conventional and unconventional weapons and the whereabouts of the fugitives depicted on the Pentagon’s 55-most-wanted playing cards. It was arguably one of the most sensitive and important jobs in the entire Iraqi theater of operations. As the team sergeant of his THT, Ford was second in command of his four-person team and responsible for training, discipline, logistics and supervision of day-to-day operations. He was also the team’s designated combat life saver, or medic.
Ford spent his first weeks in Iraq at Balad Air Base, also known as Camp Anaconda, about 50 kilometers north of Baghdad along the Tigris. In early May, he was assigned to a THT that was headed for Samarra, another 20 kilometers to the northeast. An ancient trading center that dates to the Mesopotamian era, Samarra was known as a hotbed of Sunni Arab loyalists, ex-Baath Party officials, and Islamist extremists…
Obviously, this fellow Ford might know some things. He and his team(s) may have seen some things that provide answers to some of the questions raised above. Being true to his oath, his conscience and his integrity former Military Intelligence Agent Frank Gregory Ford released the below press release on August 8, 2013. His release was sent out to his press list a full 11 days before Dempsey responded to Rep Engel, 13 days before the alleged chemical attack, 18 days before Holder asked for immunity and 19 days before the Foreign Policy report. Yet when I google, yahoo, bing or duckduck the only news outlet that has reported on Mr. Ford’s release is the Wayne Madsen Report –
FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE
August 8, 2013
Frank Gregory Ford
Evidence of American War Crimes Likely Target in Syria
While Obama’s Department of Justice seeks to shield the Bush Administration by declaring their war crimes “business as usual,” his Department of Defense prepares to eliminate hard evidence of those crimes by destroying Syria’s stockpile of weapons of mass destruction. Those WMDs came from us.
I saw canisters, “bombs,” of VX/GF in storage in Iraq. They were tagged showing they were shipped there from Ft. Rucker, Alabama by the Carlyle Group, the giant blue-ribbon finance-and-weapons conglomerate, home to former-President George H.W. Bush and other prominent war profiteers.
The nerve agent VX is the deadliest chemical weapon ever made. It is useful only for the indiscriminate destruction of human and animal life. It has been outlawed internationally, most recently by the Chemical Weapons Convention of 1993, by the Biological and Toxic Weapons Convention of 1972 and the Geneva Protocol of 1925.
We supplied VX to Iraq’s leader, Saddam Hussein, before we named him an enemy. He used it in his war against Iran and against civilian Iraqi Kurds. I learned from an Iraqi official that just before our 2003 invasion Saddam shipped great quantities of gold and nerve gas to Syria. I reported this “actionable intelligence” to my superiors, but no action followed.
The stockpile I saw was never shipped out of Iraq. It was hidden from weapons inspectors until I and others saw it in 2003, just days after we invaded. It was soon removed from its concealment by British specialists and destroyed.
It is virtually certain that this weapons cache is targeted in our run-up to an attack on Syria—as before, with Iraq—for using U.S.-made weapons. The attack is also virtually certain to eliminate evidence of complicity by the Bush presidents, father and son, who, through their positions as American presidents and as associates of the Carlyle Group and myriad other military contractors, provided them to the warring nations of the Middle East.
As with Iraq, Afghanistan and so many of America’s recent military engagements, this looming rebuke to Bashar al-Assad for allegedly using internationally outlawed American-made weapons, will fall on a vastly smaller opponent. Syria has a population of fewer than 23 million highly vulnerable men, women and children in a country that would fit in Texas almost four times. The capital, Damascus, the home of the government and location of the WMD stockpile, is the oldest continuously occupied city in the world.
(Emphasis added throughout)
A former Iraqi “Shock and Awe” Military Intelligence Agent saw with his own eyes “…canisters, “bombs,” of VX/GF in storage in Iraq. They were tagged showing they were shipped there from Ft. Rucker, Alabama by the Carlyle Group, the giant blue-ribbon finance-and-weapons conglomerate, home to former-President George H.W. Bush and other prominent war profiteers.
Ft. Rucker, Alabama. Ft. Rucker, Alabama. Ft. Rucker, Alabama. Shipped by the Carlyle Group no less!
Now, take the Foreign Policy report “CIA FILES SHOW AMERICA HELPED SADDAM HUSSEIN AS HE GASSED IRAN”, linked below, and replace all the words related to Iraq’s chemical weapons with — FT. RUCKER, ALABAMA and/or the Carlyle Group.
Also note, while reading the FP report, who the two President’s were during the Iraq/Iran conflict. Hint: Reagan and Bush Sr.
Now ask yourself, who served in those administrations and was the son of one of those Republican Presidents? Why the same crowd the DOJ is suddenly asking the courts to grant immunity to for war crimes – GEORGE W. BUSH, DONALD RUMSFELD, COLIN POWELL, CONDOLEZZA RICE, PAUL WOLFOWITZ and DICK CHENEY.
Made in America
Now, recall the Iraq/Iran conflict happened before Jr. got into the White House. The Carlyle Group, Sr’s home away from home, served then as it does now, as the center for the entirety of the American military industrial complex. This groups leadership are the maestros of America’s war machine.
Now, these geniuses knew they had to get the “Ft. Rucker – Made in America” illegal WMDs the hell out of Iraq before anybody discovered their treasonous cowardly helping hand in the gassing of thousands of Iranians and Iraqis because their very name, the Carlyle Group, were on the labels of Saddam’s WMDs. But Sr. had an election coming up of which they were confident he would win. Thus, gaining four years to cover up their crimes against humanity.
But they weren’t counting on a guy from “Hope” stealing their thunder.
Sidebar: When I was a Democrat, I worked my ass off in Cincinnati to get Clinton elected. I’ll never forget a tailgate party I was invited to the Sunday morning before election day. When Clinton was lead into a tent; his eyes were so puffy I didn’t think the poor guy could see. His handlers were holding him up. I shook his hand and then watched Hillary give his stump speech standing on the bed on the back of a pick-up truck.
I cannot imagine how painful it was for the Carlyle Group and their useful treasonous idiots to have to coddle Saddam for eight long years while Clinton played President. Maybe this was one of the contributing factors to Cheney’s multiple heart attacks during those years…hhhmmmm.
Of course, the Bushie Cabal couldn’t hold Saddam’s hands for another eight years. Who could? Saddam remained a threat. He had the goods. So these evil geniuses put the two most trusted people – Jr. and Cheney – they could into the 2000 race, bankrolled them and no matter the electoral outcome, ripped the election out of the Democrat’s hands.
Looking back, you just know the majority of the Supreme Court Justices who ruled in favor of the Bush/Cheney ticket became instant millionaires. You just know it! I’d love to see their bank statements. Wouldn’t you?
So, what was to be a rather challenging task of getting the “Ft. Rucker – Made in America – WMDs” provided by the Carlyle Group out of Saddam’s hands in 1991-1992 turned into eight years of hell. Pure hell for everyone elected to serve the People. Pure hell for America’s once proud military. Then it took another nine years for pure hell to be unleashed on the American public and worldwide.
In Eisenhower’s last speech at the White House he warned the American people stating –
“In the councils of government, we must guard against the acquisition of unwarranted influence, whether sought or unsought, by the military-industrial complex. The potential for the disastrous rise of misplaced power exists, and will persist.”
Knowing just such a machine exists; knowing the Carlyle Group is THE private hand behind the building of America’s military industrial complex; knowing a former President, Vice President, Secretary of Defense, Secretary of State, the Head of the Joint Chiefs of Staff and a US Deputy Secretary of Defense are all seeking immunity for war crimes; knowing the CIA and the DOD deliberately supplied illegal deadly chemicals to the Iraqi’s who then used said chemicals on Iranian soldiers and their own people; knowing the CIA and the DOD used America’s satellite imagery to provide strategic coordinates to the Iraqi’s who then front loaded missiles with mustard gas and sarin aimed at Iranians on the battlefield; knowing the US chemical weapons, supplied by the Carlyle Group, then made their way to Syria; knowing the Assad government would gain absolutely nothing from using this supply on the thugs unleashed by US Middle East allies to destroy the Syrian people and wreak havoc on their government, and; knowing the current puppet occupying the White House is willing to use America’s military might to destroy evidence of US war crimes which will knowingly lead to WWIII is well, nothing short of pure diabolical evil.
