U.S. needs to know more before deciding whether to strike Syria

The casualties were the result of an accident caused when al-Nusra used some ordinary rebels to carry and operate these weapons and they mishandled the material.

Dennis Lamb, from Chelsea, Iowa, and now residing out of the state, retired from the CIA in 2002 after serving 30 years in its Directorate of Operations as a case officer and intelligence analyst.

Excerpts:

On May 14, a Turkish opposition party MP, Mehmet Ali Ediboglu, alleged that al-Nusra rebels had planted twin car bombs in Turkey’s frontier area that killed 46 people in a bid to draw Turkey into Syria’s civil war.

This, he asserted, was because the rebels realized that they need help to overthrow Bashar al Assad’s Syrian regime.

If this plot with sarin had not been foiled, it is quite likely that the Turkish government, as it has in the past, would have blamed Syria for the attack, obliging a military response.

If these reports are true, then al-Nusra has sarin gas.

And if it has enough to expend on false flag operations in Turkey, then it has plenty in Syria.

And if al-Nusra was trying to lure the Turkish government into attacking Syria with a sarin gas attack on its territory in May, then it is reasonable to suspect it may also have been trying to do the same thing in Ghouta, Syria, on Aug. 21 to draw America into the conflict.

Mint Press News is a Minneapolis-based independent online news organization.

On Aug. 29, Mint Press News posted an on-the-ground report by Jordanian reporter Yahya Ababneh titled

“Exclusive: Syrians In Ghouta claim Saudi-supplied rebels behind chemical attack.”

In this report, Ababneh, who had spoken directly with the rebels, their family members, victims of the chemical weapons attacks and local residents, alleges that

rebels and local residents in Ghouta complained that Saudi Prince Bandar Bin Sultan had provided chemical weapons to certain rebels (al-Nusra is cautiously referenced) without training them in their use.

They believed the casualties were the result of an accident caused when al-Nusra used some ordinary rebels to carry and operate these weapons and they mishandled the material.
