Quote:Bild am Sonntag cites high-level German surveillance source suggesting Syrian president was not personally behind attacks.Read more: http://www.theguardian.com/world/2013/se...assad-bild
President Bashar al-Assad did not personally order last month's chemical weapons attack near Damascus that has triggered calls for US military intervention, and blocked numerous requests from his military commanders to use chemical weapons against regime opponents in recent months, a German newspaper has reported , citing unidentified, high-level national security sources.
The intelligence findings were based on phone calls intercepted by a German surveillance ship operated by the BND, the German intelligence service, and deployed off the Syrian coast, Bild am Sonntag said. The intercepted communications suggested Assad, who is accused of war crimes by the west, including foreign secretary William Hague, was not himself involved in last month's attack or in other instances when government forces have allegedly used chemical weapons.
The evidence just keeps mounting for an Al-Qaeda operation that the west is seizing upon as a reason for more unnecessary war for resources.
Once again, this is all about the petrol dollar. As is clearly evidenced by the ability to detain indefinitely without a trial and the billions spent on snooping on innocent people - this has NOTHING to do with human rights.
This schtick is getting so old and stale it's pathetic. America does not need to eat another shït sandwich.
