Intelligence and Military Sources Who Warned About WMD Lies Before Iraq War Now Say that Assad Did NOT Use Chemical Weapons

George Washington's picture

Former U.N weapons inspector Scott Ritter warned before the start of the Iraq war that claims that Saddam Hussein possessed weapons of mass destruction were false.

Sunday, Ritter wrote that current claims that the leader of Syria launched a chemical weapons attack was false:

Some sort of chemical event took place in Khan Sheikhoun; what is very much in question is who is responsible for the release of the chemicals that caused the deaths of so many civilians.

No one disputes the fact that a Syrian air force SU-22 fighter-bomber conducted a bombing mission against a target in Khan Sheikhoun on the morning of April 4, 2017. The anti-regime activists in Khan Sheikhoun, however, have painted a narrative that has the Syrian air force dropping chemical bombs on a sleeping civilian population.

A critical piece of information that has largely escaped the reporting in the mainstream media is that Khan Sheikhoun is ground zero for the Islamic jihadists who have been at the center of the anti-Assad movement in Syria since 2011. Up until February 2017, Khan Sheikhoun was occupied by a pro-ISIS group known as Liwa al-Aqsa that was engaged in an oftentimes-violent struggle with its competitor organization, Al Nusra Front (which later morphed into Tahrir al-Sham, but under any name functioning as Al Qaeda’s arm in Syria) for resources and political influence among the local population.


Al Nusra has a long history of manufacturing and employing crude chemical weapons; the 2013 chemical attack on Ghouta made use of low-grade Sarin nerve agent locally synthesized, while attacks in and around Aleppo in 2016 made use of a chlorine/white phosphorous blend.


Early on, the anti-Assad opposition media outlets were labeling the Khan Sheikhoun incident as a “Sarin nerve agent” attack; one doctor affiliated with Al Qaeda sent out images and commentary via social media that documented symptoms, such as dilated pupils, that he diagnosed as stemming from exposure to Sarin nerve agent. Sarin, however, is an odorless, colorless material, dispersed as either a liquid or vapor; eyewitnesses speak of a “pungent odor” and “blue-yellow” clouds, more indicative of chlorine gas.


There are no images taken of victims at the scene of the attack.


The lack of viable protective clothing worn by the “White Helmet” personnel while handling victims is another indication that the chemical in question was not military grade Sarin; if it were, the rescuers would themselves have become victims (some accounts speak of just this phenomena, but this occurred at the site of the attack, where the rescuers were overcome by a “pungent smelling” chemical – again, Sarin is odorless.)


The World Health Organization has indicated that the symptoms of the Khan Sheikhoun victims are consistent with both Sarin and Chlorine exposure. American media outlets have latched onto the Turkish and WHO statements as “proof” of Syrian government involvement; however, any exposure to the chlorine/white phosphorous blend associated with Al Nusra chemical weapons would produce similar symptoms.

Similarly, Hans Blix – the former head of the U.N. Monitoring, Verification and Inspection Commission –  warned before the Iraq war that the Bush administration was greatly exaggerating the threat from Iraq’s weapons.

Blix says of the chemical incident in Syria:

Merely pictures of victims that were held up, that the whole world can see with horror, such pictures are not necessarily evidence of who did it.

Two dozen senior U.S. intelligence and military officers – who tried to warn George W. Bush before the Iraq war that those pushing war were lying – write:

Our U.S. Army contacts in the area have told us this is not what happened. There was no Syrian “chemical weapons attack.” Instead, a Syrian aircraft bombed an al-Qaeda-in-Syria ammunition depot that turned out to be full of noxious chemicals and a strong wind blew the chemical-laden cloud over a nearby village where many consequently died.

Ex-CIA officer Philip Giraldi insists that the intelligence community and military personnel know that the intel shows that this was not an Assad attack.  Specifically, Giraldi says his sources on the ground in Middle East – active duty U.S. military and intelligence stationed in the Middle East, intimately familiar with facts – say that the chemical weapons claim is a sham.  Giraldi says that his sources are 100% certain the the Syrian air force hit a warehouse of rebels connected with Al Qaeda which were storing chemicals. He says that people in the American military and intelligence are “freaking out” about this, because Trump has completely misrepresented the facts regarding what happened.

Captain Doug Rokke – former Director of the U.S. Army’s Depleted Uranium Project and an expert on chemical weapons – wrote to Washington’s Blog and others:

This was not a sarin attack at all.  Looks like either anhydrous ammonia or chlorine from infrastructure destruction.




Sarin does not work as shown on tv video photos reports. I think … someone blew up anhydrous ammonia plant or supply or  chlorine supply.




Just nonsense if anyone knows how sarin works.”

Robert Parry, the investigative reporter who many of the Iran-Contra stories for  Associated Press and Newsweek in the 1980s, notes:

One intelligence source told me that the most likely scenario was a staged event by the rebels intended to force Trump to reverse a policy, announced only days earlier, that the U.S. government would no longer seek “regime change” in Syria and would focus on attacking the common enemy, Islamic terror groups that represent the core of the rebel forces.




Trump went along with the idea of embracing the initial rush to judgment blaming Assad for the Idlib poison-gas event. The source added that Trump saw Thursday night’s missile assault as a way to change the conversation in Washington, where his administration has been under fierce attack from Democrats claiming that his election resulted from a Russian covert operation.

Colonel Lawrence Wilkerson – chief of staff to Colin Powell – says:

Most of my sources are telling me, including members of the team that monitors global chemical weapons, including people in Syria, including people in the U.S. intelligence community, that what most likely happened … that they hit a warehouse that they had intended to hit. And had told both sides, Russia and the United states, that they were going to hit. This is the Syrian air force, of course. And this warehouse was alleged to have ISIS supplies in it, and, indeed, it probably did, and some of those supplies were precursors for chemicals. Or, possibly an alternative, they were phosphates for the cotton growing, fertilizing the cotton-growing region that’s adjacent to this area. And the bombs hit, conventional bombs, hit the warehouse, and because of a very strong wind, and because of the explosive power of the bombs, they dispersed these ingredients and killed some people.

Colonel W. Patrick Lang alleges:

Here is what happened:


1. The Russians briefed the United States on the proposed target. This is a process that started more than two months ago. There is a dedicated phone line that is being used to coordinate and deconflict (i.e., prevent US and Russian air assets from shooting at each other) the upcoming operation.


2. The United States was fully briefed on the fact that there was a target in Idlib that the Russians believes was a weapons/explosives depot for Islamic rebels.


3. The Syrian Air Force hit the target with conventional weapons. All involved expected to see a massive secondary explosion. That did not happen. Instead, smoke, chemical smoke, began billowing from the site. It turns out that the Islamic rebels used that site to store chemicals, not sarin, that were deadly. The chemicals included organic phosphates and chlorine and they followed the wind and killed civilians.


4. There was a strong wind blowing that day and the cloud was driven to a nearby village and caused casualties.


5. We know it was not sarin. How? Very simple. The so-called “first responders” handled the victims without gloves. If this had been sarin they would have died. Sarin on the skin will kill you. How do I know? I went through “Live Agent” training at Fort McClellan in Alabama.

And the former UK Ambassador to Syria told the BBC there was “no proof” of a chemical weapons attack, and that it would make no sense for Assad to have done so.

Postscript:  The guy who supplied “evidence” on the supposed gas attack is a “committed jihadist” according to the MI6.

IMPORTANT: WIKILEAKS MAY TIE EVERYTHING TOGETHER - Hillary/Obama, the Benghazi Consulate, Saudi Arabia, Clinton Foundation, (Obama), Russia, the Refugees, and Comey/FBI reaction to the emails!
"Saudi Arabia, Clinton Foundation and Obama
The Saudi's want a Trans-Arabic pipeline reaching into Europe.
The CIA had a coup 1949 in Syria, overthrowing a democratically elected leader, in order to enable a pipeline for the Sauds’ oil to become built through Syria into the largest oil market, Europe; and, construction of the pipeline started the following year.
Obama is the first US President to have seriously tried to carry out their long-desired “regime change” in Syria, so as to enable not only the Sauds’ Trans-Arabian Pipeline to be built, but also to build through Syria the Qatar-Turkey Gas Pipeline
The Thani royal family (friends of the Sauds) who own Qatar want it also to be built there.
The Saudi royal family, who own the world’s largest oil company, Aramco, don’t want to wait any longer.
A secret agreement in 2012 was reached between the Obama Administration and the leaders of Turkey, Saudi Arabia, and Qatar, to set up a sarin gas attack and blame it on Assad so that the US could invade and overthrow Assad.
Hillary supplied chemical weapons to rebels to frame Assad and begin a 'fake' war to overtake Qaddafi in Libya (by giving rebels sarin gas).
Hillary used the US Consulate in Benghazi Libya to operate a “rat line” for Gaddafi’s captured weapons into Syria through Turkey.
Gen. Petraeus, Ambassador Stevens were working with the CIA to pipeline weapons through Libya.
2nd Cold War= Russia is allied with Syria and the US is allied with Saudi Arabia
Refugees were part of the agreement with the Saudi's so following the war, the states of Europe and the US would take in displaced people caused by Europe and the US involvement in order to receive the oil pipeline from the Saudi's.
Clinton Foundation
The importance of Saudi Arabia’s role in funding Clinton is tremendous, as the Syria/Saudi relationship over the last half century is what this civil war is all about.
Hillary has ties to these international criminal cartels who’ve been funding her and her husband for decades.
FBI/Comey and the email scandal After the attacks, an evidence trail found to lead back to the Chairman of the Joint Chiefs of Staff Martin Dempsey, CIA Director John Brennan, Saudi Intelligence Chief Prince Bandar, and Saudi Arabia´s Interior Ministry.

There are serious problems with this article and the credibility of COL W. Patrick Lang's assertion that he did "live agent" training at "Fort McClellan, Alabama."  That's nothing short of amazing since the US Army and DoD have only one facility where live agents are allowed "by treaty" and used for training, and its not "Fort McClellan, Alabama." Whoever W. Patrick Lang is, he's spinning lies in this article or at the very least providing false credentials to give his assertions credibility. I was a Chemical Bn Commander in the US Army and my Bn trained annually at the Live Agent Facility which is not located where this imposter says he took his live agent training. The US and other signatories to a treaty which limits such facilities has only one facility where this kind of training takes, and only one. Fakes news strikes Zero Hedge again!!!

A better long-term solution would be to tell Jared and Ivanka that America thanks them for their service to MAGA, but they've now (((done enough))) and it's time to go back to their everyday jobs.

They'll learn to adjust to the absence of the heady trappings of power. Maybe not. Too bad. Tough shit.

Blame the media.  They get us to believe anything they want us to believe.  I'm sure they made a lot of money on advertisements by getting more people to tune in.  War and B.S. make people money.  The truth doesn't sell too well.  Bush blamed Sadaam for 9/11.  After he finally admitted Sadaam wasn't involved, a survey was taken.  59% of Americans still believed Sadaam was involved in 9/11 even after Bush admitted he wasn't.  Even after the truth comes out about who really was responsible for this chemical issue, most people will still believe Assad did it.  Just like 3 Muslims who never flew a jumbo jet, one who couldn't even fly a Cessna,  took down 4 buildings with 3 planes.  Well, I believed it also for a few years until someone mentioned "Building 7".  Then I realized the media was full of it.

I'm putting on my tin-foil-hat. Sadam was taken out when he threatened dollar hegemony. Sadam did lots of things that got him hand slaps but him and Quadaffi playing games with the Euro and gold seem to be what got them killed. Russia and China and to a lesser extent Iran and Turkey have started to do this also according to this web site (Zerohedge). Specifically building up gold reserves. Dangerous games.

Why would the war hawks revert to such an obvious, pathetic excuse for attacking Assad. The reality of the situation must come out very soon, and they must have known that. So Trump bombed a parking lot in the middle of the desert, killed a few innocent Syrians and kept the American public on a war footing. This had nothing to do with Syria, a pipe line, or anyone else. This is all about keeping the confused American sheep running in the direction they want them to go. You have been had; again! Their target is not some camel humper in the middle of the dessert: it is you!

I am sure we can depend on the mainstream media to splash this news all over the headlines today, just as they have done so many times in the past.  Isn't it great we live in a society with free speech protected by a diligent press corps?  Surely government now will apologize for the mistake they made and offer compensation to the victims of the attack.  Never again will they ever make an attack based on such flimsy evidence.

Also in other news, there is at least one Austrlian politician that doesn't believe US intelligence on the Syria gas attack.


Independent MP Andrew Wilkie has questioned whether Syrian President Bashar al-Assad's regime was responsible for last week's chemical weapons attack on civilians that prompted US missile strikes.


Mr Wilkie, a former senior intelligence analyst, said there was no doubt the attack occurred but Australia should not blindly accept assurances from US authorities.

His comments come after US Defence Secretary James Mattis said "there is no doubt" the Assad regime was responsible for planning and orchestrating the deadly attack.

"Frankly, I just don't trust the Trump administration," Mr Wilkie told Sky News.

"It would make a lot of sense for them to beat the drums of war again when they are under so much pressure domestically."

Money_for_Nothing's picture

Wilkie should say he trusted Hillary as US S of S. That would be even funnier. No one trusts Trump. Every time Trump does something it works out well for Trump. I trust Wilkie to say stupid stuff so that he keeps getting elected. If his province turns pro Trump Wilkie will be saying what a good person Trump is or Wilkie gets his ass kicked out of office.

But it doesn't even matter what happened in Syria, does it, because the decision to wage war on Syria had already been taken weeks ahead of this event by McMaster , Mattis and the renegade family members of Trump.

And these are the same terrorists (trained by the Pentagon) who are the alleged target of Washington’s counterterrorism bombing campaign initiated by Obama in August 2014:

“The Pentagon scheme established in 2012 consisted in equipping and training Al Qaeda rebels in the use of chemical weapons, with the support of military contractors hired by the Pentagon, and then holding the Syrian government responsible for using the WMD against the Syrian people.

What is unfolding is a diabolical scenario –which is an integral part of military planning– namely a situation where opposition terrorists advised by Western defense contractors are actually in possession of chemical weapons.

This is not a rebel training exercise in non-proliferation. While president Obama states that “you will be held accountable” if “you” (meaning the Syrian government) use chemical weapons, what is contemplated as part of this covert operation is the possession of chemical weapons by the US-NATO sponsored terrorists, namely “by our” Al Qaeda affiliated operatives, including the Al Nusra Front which constitutes the most effective Western financed and trained fighting group, largely integrated by foreign mercenaries. In a bitter twist, Jabhat al-Nusra, a US sponsored “intelligence asset”, was recently put on the State Department’s list of terrorist organizations.

The West claims that it is coming to the rescue of the Syrian people, whose lives are allegedly threatened by Bashar Al Assad. The truth of the matter is that the Western military alliance is not only supporting the terrorists, including the Al Nusra Front, it is also making chemical weapons available to its proxy “opposition” rebel forces.

The next phase of this diabolical scenario is that the chemical weapons in the hands of Al Qaeda operatives will be used against civilians, which could potentially lead an entire nation into a humanitarian disaster.

The broader issue is: who is a threat to the Syrian people? The Syrian government of Bashar al Assad or the US-NATO-Israel military alliance which is recruiting “opposition” terrorist forces, which are now being trained in the use of chemical weapons.” (Michel Chossudovsky, May 8, 2013, minor edit)

More from the article:

The Pentagon’s Training of “Rebels” (aka Al Qaeda Terrorists) in the Use of Chemical Weapons

CNN accuses Bashar Al Assad of killing his own people while also acknowledging that the “rebels” are not only in possession of chemical weapons, but that these “moderate terrorists” affiliated with Al Nusra are trained in the use of chemical weapons by specialists on contract to the Pentagon.

In a twisted logic, the Pentagon’s mandate was to ensure that the rebels aligned with Al Qaeda would not acquire or use WMD, by actually training them in the use of chemical weapons (sounds contradictory):

“The training [in chemical weapons], which is taking place in Jordan and Turkey, involves how to monitor and secure stockpiles and handle weapons sites and materials, according to the sources. Some of the contractors are on the ground in Syria working with the rebels to monitor some of the sites, according to one of the officials.

The nationality of the trainers was not disclosed, though the officials cautioned against assuming all are American. (CNN, December 09, 2012, emphasis added)

The above report by CNN’s award winning journalist Elise Labott (relegated to the status a CNN blog), refutes CNN’s numerous accusations directed against Bashar Al Assad.

Unluckily, there never was Sarin or VX, else the first responders without any protective gear would have died. And as it hasn't rained the Sarin would have been hanging around for quite a while. So why was it not possible to get some samples? Because there never was any Sarin... But OMG, pictures of dead children, killed by the fuxxing terrorists directly or whatever chemicals the terrorists were using in the bombed facility.

Or maybe even worse: The terrorists knew the facility would be bombed (how? CIA/McCain, whatever) and planted the chemicals or some dead civilians. False flag or accident, my bet is false flag...

Stinkytofu's picture

oh, there coulda been sarin.  and of the syrian government type too!


syria gave up its chemical weapons....remember?

they were all delivered forces for destruction aboard a us vessel.


wanna lay odds no samples were kept.....for just in case?

they could easily have been degraded/mixed with other substances to

reduce the effectiveness, but keep the chemical markers.




LOL123's picture

In any scenario that all these "intel" proposals, there was "advanced notice of harm to civilians" even the theory that McCain spoke to rebels. So the immediate question is why were these innocent children and adults allowed to suffer or die?  If it was a false flag then moralisticaly ( which never plays a role in war) this silence and inaction makes more sense. If an actual attack then there is blood on both sides of this conflict which tells me a lot of what can and will happen if it escalates, so a total war of psychological attack and physical attack is quite nasty all the way around and only the innocent suffer as usual.... But hey there are gas fields and pipelines to be had....

This puts all the threads together that I have seen from various sources, and they are all internally consistant. No wonder nobody wants to believe it. If it leads to wider conflict it is 21st century Gulf of Tonkin. If not, it's one more attempt to push an agenda. Personally I think dick45 is in on it, with massive orchestration of russian 'anger', neutered military response, etc.  If this is supposed to divert attention so he can be manly in korea it is pretty damn weak...and if that orange fucker causes a nuke exchange in korea, even limited, we are going to have jumped into the fire...

That is where the original stockpiles in Iraq, Libya, Syria and Turkey came from and now the CIA is handing it out to the various ISIS or Muslim Brotherhood 'rebel' groups.

Assad has never poison gassed anyone.

The problem is that ego-challenged asshats like Trump and all the rest of the neocons and neo-liberals (and the sycophantic press) are petrified to admit making a mistake. Even saying it wasn't a mistake, merely new information from more credible sources. They think the only way to save face is to keep telling the same lie until the topic runs out of steam. Dangerous, dangerous people. Threaten peace, threaten liberty.

Stubbornly insisting the grass is red and the sky is green is statesmanlike. Backing up that insistence with violence is "presidential."
