U.S. Intelligence Source: Syria Chemical Weapons Attack Launched From Joint Saudi-Israeli Base

Award winning journalist Robert Parry says incident was likely a false flag

Award-winning Iran-Contra journalist Robert Parry says the chemical weapons attack in Syria was launched from a joint Saudi-Israeli special operations base in Jordan, according to his intelligence sources.

U.S. intelligence analysts determined that a drone was responsible for the attack and “eventually came to believe that the flight was launched in Jordan from a Saudi-Israeli special operations base for supporting Syrian rebels,” according to the source.

“The suspected reason for the poison gas was to create an incident that would reverse the Trump administration’s announcement in late March that it was no longer seeking the removal of President Bashar al-Assad,” writes Parry.

As we highlighted back in 2013 after another chemical weapons attack in Ghouta that was blamed on Assad, rebels freely admitted to Associated Press correspondent Dale Gavlak that they had been given the weapons by Saudi Arabia but had “handled the weapons improperly and set off the explosions.”

Parry’s background lends the information credibility. He covered the Iran-Contra scandal for the Associated Press and Newsweek and was later given a George Polk award for his work on intelligence matters.

The contention that the incident was a “false flag” to create a justification for air strikes has also been voiced by former Congressman Ron Paul as well as numerous other prominent voices, including Vladimir Putin himself, who went on to warn that rebels could now stage a similar incident in Damascus to goad the U.S. into toppling Assad.

Whoever was responsible for the attack does not take away from the horror of the event and the fact that innocent people and children died.

Parry dismissed the four page report released by President Trump’s National Security Council that blames the Syrian government for the chemical attack as being heavy on assertions but lacking actual evidence.

The white paper states, “we cannot publicly release all available intelligence on this attack due to the need to protect sources and methods,” although as Parry points out, “In similarly tense situations in the past, U.S. Presidents have released sensitive intelligence to buttress U.S. government assertions, including John F. Kennedy’s disclosure of U-2 spy flights in the 1962 Cuban Missile Crisis and Ronald Reagan revealing electronic intercepts after the Soviet shoot-down of Korean Airlines Flight 007 in 1983.”

Parry challenged the Trump administration to make its evidence publicly available, while also questioning why both CIA Director Mike Pompeo and Director of National Intelligence Dan Coats were not show in a photo released by the White House which shows the President and a dozen of his senior advisers monitoring the April 6 missile strike from a room at his Mar-a-Lago estate in Florida.

“Given President Trump’s spotty record for getting facts straight – he and his administration should go the extra mile in presenting irrefutable evidence to support its assessments, not simply insisting that the world must “trust us,” concludes Parry.

    I understand the merits of secrecy, therefore, if the Saudi’s and the Israeli’s were
    complicit in dropping chemical weapons on innocent inhabitants in Syria, where did
    Israel and the Saudi’s obtain the chemical weapons? Therefore, there is a requirement for substanial proof that the Saudi’s and the Israeli’s were involved. This scenario reeks in the same vein as how the Israeli’s have been accused of being responsible for the implosion of the twin Towers and Building 7, as no aircraft penetrated any of these building, nor, the Penegon, and where are all of the remaining parts from these 2 aircraft, and the aircraft that crashed in the field in Pennsylvania, does not match the parts of the nomenclature of the original aircraft. My money is place on Assad and Putin. As far as I can discover, Putin was responsible for removing Assad’s chemical weapons. Has anyone viewed the proof that this was accomplished by Putin? Putin and Assad, are renegades, similar to the worthless Black turd of a POS of token Tar-Baby of an ex-44th POTUS, whom, in Benghazi, in 2012, permitted our 4 Americans to perish, while he and Hillary Rotten Clinton, the then Secretary of State, created a false flag in gun-running to the Syrian rebels and the plan to kidnap Chris Stevens, our then American Ambassador to Libya, and trade him for the blind, Muslim Sheik whom was incarcerated in the United States. What is required, is these bands of renegades, undergo a series of “TRUTH
    SERUM INJECTIONS,” to finally learn the truth, otherwise, as always, these political scenarios will ONLY be classified as heresay. Where is the proof that Putin eliminated
    Assad’s chemical weapons? What international organization is responsible to prove
    that all of Assad’s chemical weapons had been removed from Syria, and further, if
    they had been removed, where were they destroyed, and where is the proof?
    What am I missing here? It is possible that the Saudi’s and the Israeli’s were compli-
    cit in this latest chemical use against innocent people, but my money is placed upon
    Putin and Assad as the guilty party. Then, there is the scenario that Assad is too
    paranoid, and therefore, he believes that Putin and the United States have plotted
    to over-throw him and his presidency, and therefore, in order to indicate that he is
    still in power, he created this current chemical weapons scenario.
