After publicly declaring that it would be “unacceptable” if Syria used chemical weapons against its own people, did the US authorize chemical weapons in Syria? Hacked and leaked emails suggest that this is the case and that the plan was to covertly supply the Syrians with chemical weapons and pin their use on Syrian President Assad.
According to Infowars.com a hacker in Germany obtained alleged emails from a defense contractor, Britam. In the emails between Britam Defence’s Business Development Director David Goulding and the company’s founder Philip Doughty, Britam reveals a plan “approved by Washington” and funded by Qatar to stage a a chemical weapons attack in Syria and blame it on the Assad regime. Here is a portion of those emails (emphasis added).
We’ve got a new offer. It’s about Syria again. Qataris propose an attractive deal and swear that the idea is approved by Washington.
We’ll have to deliver a CW to Homs, a Soviet origin g-shell from Libya similar to those that Assad should have. They want us to deploy our Ukrainian personnel that should speak Russian and make a video record.
Frankly, I don’t think it’s a good idea but the sums proposed are enormous. Your opinion?
CW stands for Chemical Weapon. Saying that the CW should be from Libya and similar to those that Assad should have clearly suggests that the intent was to stage the use of the chemical weapons and pin it on Syrian president Assad. Being able to accuse Assad of using chemical weapons on his own people, especially after Obama stated that the use of chemical weapons would be “totally unacceptable” and there would be “consequences” would clearly pave the way for military intervention.
President Francois Hollande has also warned Syrian President Assad that any use of the country’s chemical weapons would be a legitimate justification for military intervention.
A screenshot of the Britam executives’ email exchange can be viewed here and has already been subjected to quite a bit of analysis as readers try to determine if it is authentic or not. According to InfoWars.com
One software systems administrator who analyzed the header from the email in question concluded, “I have to admit that the email does indeed look genuine….all these facts check out. So with Mythbusters objectivity I have to call this one plausible.”
The analysis was originally posted on Reddit and reposted on Pastebin. CyberWarNews also posted their analysis and although there is no unanimous agreement, most seem to feel that if they are not genuine, the emails are at least a very plausible hoax.
PressTV notes in their coverage that while there may be no way to confirm the authenticity of the emails, the Israelis and NATO have been trying to justify a military intervention in Syria based on fears of “chemical weapons” for some time and that a war in Iraq was fought for nearly a decade under the “weapons of mass destruction” pretense. During the Iraq war, PressTV reminds us:
British special forces were caught carrying out false flag attacks, dressed as sectarian extremists in Basra, Iraq, and shooting at Iraqi policemen. After the British soldiers were arrested, the British army attacked the police station they were being held at to free them. The precedence of Western nations using false flag operations, including terrorism, to achieve geopolitical objectives beyond their borders most certainly exists.
So did the US authorize chemical weapons in Syria? At this point, nobody seems to know. But if the claim that such a plot was made and “approved by Washington” is determined to be credible, then Qatar, Britain and the US will certainly have a lot of explaining to do.
