IT IS CLEAR TO SEE HOW THE PEOPLE IN THE US FEEL ABOUT THE WAR ON SYRIA PRESIDENT MCCAIN, SECRETARY KERRY, AND JOHN MCCAIN AND TRYING TO PUSH ON THE AMERICAN PEOPLE. IT WONT WORK WITH THE PEOPLE…
REPUBLICAN CONGRESSMAN WITHDRAWS SUPPORT FOR SYRIA STRIKE
Rep. Michael Grimm (R-N.Y.), who on Saturday said he supported President Obama’s decision to launch military action in Syria, has changed his mind.
In a statement Thursday, Grimm says the window for action has now passed and that the feedback from his constituents has made him re-think his previous position.
“Thus, after much thought, deliberation and prayer, I am no longer convinced that a U.S. strike on Syria will yield a benefit to the United States that will not be greatly outweighed by the extreme cost of war,” Grimm said.
THE NEW YORK TIMES
FINALLY, AND OUNCE OF TRUTH IS COMING TO THE UNITED STATES WHERE ALL CAN SEE. THIS CONFLICT HAS BROUGHT THE TRUTH TO LIGHT.
MAJOR PRESS SUCCESS.
An error in a front page article published by The New York Times has elicited strong condemnation from supporters of the Syrian opposition on Friday for what they see as a misrepresentation of moderate rebels in the Syrian conflict.
On Thursday, the Times piece…
“Brutality of Syrian Rebels Posing Dilemma in West” went viral with the help of a gruesome execution video showing Syrian rebels reciting a macabre poem before executing seven unarmed regime soldiers. The video dominated cable news broadcasts and proliferated on social media websites and the Drudge Report.
It also elicited a response from the State Department and Secretary of State John Kerry.
It was a newsworthy in part because it appeared to chip away at claims by the Obama administration that the Syrian opposition is largely made up of moderate forces. As The Times reported, the rebel commander who oversaw the executions in the video, Abdul Samad Issa, received weapons from the Western-backed Supreme Military Council (SMC), according to its source.
But the Syrian Support Group, a Washington-based advocate for more aggressive U.S. intervention in Syria, said Issa and his group, Jund al-Sham, has no connection to the Supreme Military Council and never did, in a statement to The Cable:
“The article claims that the group has received supplies from the SMC command under General Idris, and that its relationship with national or international extremist groups is unknown. SSG has spoken to several of General Idris’s deputy commanders, including Ltc. Musa’ab Saad Eldeen, as well as information-gathering contacts in Aleppo and Idlib for more information on the group.
According to all sources, the SMC has no previous or current relationship with Jund al-Sham and, contrary to the New York Times article, the group is not shown within the SMC’s or SSG’s delivery records as having received supplies from the SMC command. Jund al-Sham is independent of the SMC and of extremist groups, operates primarily in rural Idlib, and has relied heavily on fuel smuggling to Turkey for its funds.”
Sometime after the SSG issued this statement to The Cable, the Times posted a correction to its article noting that the execution video was not from this year. In fact, it was “made in the spring of 2012,” according to a correction at the bottom of the article. In a statement to The Cable, the SSG’s media director Dan Layman said the correction further vindicated the group’s point. “The Times just corrected their article to show the time stamp on the video was the spring of 2012. Before the SMC even existed,” said Layman.
Although it’s true that the SMC wasn’t founded until December 2012, the latest version of the Timesstory says the rebel group received arms from the SMC sometime this year, which the Times notes does not contradict its story.
“The date of the video has been corrected. The other facts in the article and video are not in dispute,” Danielle Rhoades Ha, director of communication at The Times, told The Cable.
In any event, Layman and other members of the opposition lobby say presenting the year-old video in the middle of the Congressoinal debate over authorizing war was tendentious. “It really suggests how they’re willing to sacrifice truth for their own anti-war sentiments,” he said, referring to the newspaper.
But regardless of when the execution video was made, it still happened, and offers a window into how some rebel groups operate or at least operated at one point in time. It’s also just one of many gruesome web videos with unconfirmed origins that have been used by both sides of the war for propaganda purposes. You can bet it won’t be the last.
I SUGGEST ANYONE WHO IS SLOW IN BELIEVING THE “MODERATE OPPOSITION” IS ANYTHING LESS THAN A BUNCH OF WORTHLESS MINDLESS BRAINWASHED MURDERING NUTCASES RUNNING AROUND SYRIA INVADING TOWNS AS FAST AS POSSIBLE WHILE SLAUGHTERING ALL RELIGIOUS FACTIONS, INCLUDING SUNNI, BETTER GET TO YOUTUBE AS FAST AS YOU CAN. THEIR FRESH KILLS ARE POSTED DAILY.
JUST TYPE IN “SYRIAN TERRORISTS (OR REBELS MURDER), AND YOU WILL HAVE AN ENDLESS SUPPLY OF PROUD KILLS. HEY EVEN HAVE A FEW THEY CLAIM ARE SYRIAN ARMY COMMITTING A SPECIFIC ACT, BUT DONT PLAY INTO THE MEDIA GAME. IT IS VERY EASY TO KNOW THE SAA FROM THE FSA/AL NUSRA/AL QAEDA. THE SAA IS TRYING TO SAVE ALL HER CITIZENS.
MEANWHILE, JOHN MCCAIN IS GOING FROM TOWN TO TOWN HOLDING PUBLIC MEETINGS IN AN ATTEMPT TO GAIN PUBLIC SUPPORT FOR THIS “STRIKE” ON SYRIA. NUMBERS FROM THE AMERICAN PUBLIC ARE GROWING TO ABOUT 99% TO 1% AGAINST! IT COULD NOT BE MORE CLEAR TO THE US GOVERNMENT THAT THE PEOPLE OF AMERICA SAY A BIG FAT NO NO NO NO!
THIS VIDEO IS OF A MAN WHO REALLY SPOKE THE VOICE OF THE AMERICAN PEOPLE. HE TELLS JOHN MCCAIN, TO HIS FACE, HE SHOULD BE ARRESTED FOR TREASON ALONG WITH PRESIDENT OBAMA AND SECRETARY OF STATE KERRY!
I COULDNT AGREE MORE!
