Flashback To May: Turkey Finds Sarin Gas In Homes Of Syrian Al-Qaeda Linked Jihadists

The re-blogged article tries to challenge the well-known wisdom of Hanoi John Secretary Kerry that, since sarin gas was used during gas attacks in Syria last month, women, children and innocent Syrian freedom fighters could not have been responsible for them. It is based on a May 31, 2013 Russian language article at RT.com claiming that Turkish security forces captured Syrian militants affiliated with Al-Nusra, and hence with Al-Qaeda, in possession of sarin gas, which they intended to use in Turkey.

There is an obvious answer to the RT.com claims, and Secretary Kerry will probably offer an explanation soon:

Some misguided Turks caught a few missionary-minded Japanese tourists, who had sarin for their Tokyo-style religious ceremonies, and mistakenly labeled them Al-Nusra Front Syrian terrorists. It was a silly but understandable mistake and does nothing to challenge President Obama’s consistently decisive foreign policy determinations — based on flawless and obviously correct analyses by the best and brightest in our intelligence community — that the Assad Regime did the foul deed.

We are confident that an outrageous request by the Assad regime that the United Nations mock the President of the United States — the most important force for peace, truth and justice in the entire world — by telling him not to intervene in a militarily humane way to prevent further deaths of innocents at the hands of the Assad regime in Syria will be denied, promptly!

Socialism is not the Answer

Weasel Zippers

Kerry has claimed the chemical attack on August 21 was a sarin attack. Yet the Obama administration seems light so far on producing actual evidence that the regime in fact did it. The administration has pushed the narrative that only the regime could have sarin. As we show here, wrong again.

Also in May, a UN Commission Of Inquiry found strong evidence that the “rebels” had used sarin gas.

Via RT:

Turkish security forces found a 2kg cylinder with sarin gas after searching the homes of Syrian militants from the Al-Qaeda linked Al-Nusra Front who were previously detained, Turkish media reports. The gas was reportedly going to be used in a bomb.

The sarin gas was found in the homes of suspected Syrian Islamists detained in the southern provinces of Adana and Mersia following a search by Turkish police on Wednesday, reports say. The gas was allegedly going…

    Hanoi John, the consummate political hack.
    Remember when Hanoi John was telling POWs to sign confessions so that things would go easier on them by their North Vietnamese captors? Very surprised that McCain never went “Nam” on him.
    In essence, Hanoi John, now implies that America should, side with al-Qaeda cannibal jihadists, so things will go easier on America.
    Only a fool, would trust Kerry. Remember my words: Never, follow a fool, into battle.

    • Only a fool, would trust Kerry.

      Ditto President Obama who, if for no reason beyond that He has been the President for what seems like an eternity, has lied to us at every opportunity. I have no reason to assume, or even to hope, that He is being truthful now about Syria or that He will be truthful in the future.
