Welcome to The Daily Wrap Up, a concise show dedicated to bringing you the most relevant independent news, as we see it, from the last 24 hours (4/19/18).
Many outlets over the last couple days have been reporting supposed bombshell admissions by the US, saying that, ‘US intelligence agencies have admitted that they were not certain the Assad regime had used the nerve agent sarin against civilians—but launched the massive attack anyway,‘ and that a lack of complete info was why more strikes were not carried out.
First, from the beginning, this has been about chlorine gas being used, the addition of sarin in the conversation only came from western media sources and was never verified, making the claim that ‘sarin was never confirmed’ in and of itself nothing new. So it being presented as if the US is saying, in general, that it had no evidence to carry out these attacks is, in my opinion, disingenuous and deceptive. That being said, I also believe — and I would say it is very clear — that they did not and do not have evidence, as I have said many times. Yet we should not be misrepresenting the story even if it is to get the right point across. We do not need that, they have failed to produce anything other than videos and comments from the White Helmets, which are easily found online, and that is actually what both the UK and France released as their “evidence.” Mattis originally stated that there was no evidence to begin with, yet after the US-led attacks, the US has maintained it has some secret proof it refuses to disclose
Now it may have just been a lack of due diligence and not manipulation per se, as all the past cases have indeed been centered around sarin gas, but nonetheless, this is nothing new and it is misleading to present it as if the US were outright saying that it had no evidence for the attack, which it has already done about the previous attacks — and again, even though I agree that they currently have none.
Now for the second part — that this was why they stopped short in their bombing campaign — I do find that very revealing, and it is now coming out that Mattis was explicitly trying to wait for more evidence, and wanted to go through Congress as the law requires, yet he was overruled. So in this way, these stories buried the lead as I see it.
I also find it very interesting that apparently there was a two-week long military NATO exercise that led right up to the US, UK and France launched its attack on Syria. How many times must we see these exercises or drills right before some sort of staged event before we see that for what it is? From 9/11 all they up until the recent Parkland shooting, the possibility that it is just a coincidence, that a drill was taking place in the same location just before an event, this many times in a row, basically every single time, is a mathematical impossibility as far as I’m concerned.
It shows us that these events are likely planned and or staged entirely. It also aligns with exactly what I was suggesting with the clearly orchestrated smear campaigns by Snopes and Newsbud on Eva bartlett, Vanessa Beeley and James Corbett, all voices of truth and reason challenging the irrational anti-Assad narrative, leading up to the US-led attacks on Syria. It suggests that these attacks were not only planned in advance, but planned even before the staged chemical attack. Think about that.
Now this is just my deductive logic here, but anyone willing to ignore the coordinated smear campaign on leading voices that challenge the very info they needed to justify the US-led attack, the NATO drills leading right up until that attack, and the now floundering Syria chemical attack deception, is simply ignoring the truth in front of them. I truly feel this exposes the reality that the intention was to attack Syria, for a multitude of reason, and everything else was simply to justify it. The next question we should be asking is whether Trump was aware of this, or manipulated himself. I will leave that for you to decide.
As we reported yesterday, there has been a request for an investigation into Clinton, Comey, Lynch, McCabe, Peter Struck and Lisa Page, which is great to see. However, it may lead nowhere, there are many more who need to be held accountable on both sides of the aisle. As well as many more, and much more serious crimes, which those listed are guilty of. I very much like seeing these good steps, and hope that Trump becomes the man so many still believe him to be, but if history is any indication, this is all just a mirage meant to hold off an outright revolt, one more measure of control meant to keep us thinking change is just around the corner, all while we head full steam in the other direction. And quite possible to pull attention away from the collapsing Syria narrative.
As I always say, it falls to us, the people, to hold them accountable, especially when the media groups, organizations and institutions whose very job it is to check the power structure, have long ago become just another arm of its control. So the real question is, what are you going to do about it.
Please take the information discussed in the video below and research for yourself, and come to your own conclusions. As anyone telling you what the truth is, or claiming they have the answer, is likely leading you astray, for one reason or another. Stay Vigilant.
