Al-Jazeera Film False Flag Chemical Attack Against Syrian Civilians
Tyler Durden, Zero Hedge, May 4 2017

One month after Trump flip-flopped on his Syrian position, launching cruise missile strikes on a Syrian airfield as “after dinner entertainment” during Trump’s meeting with the Chinese president, just days after declaring he would allow the Syrian people to decide the fate of Assad when another “chemical attack” video emerged at the end of March, a false flag chemical attack against civilians in Syria was filmed recently by al-Jazeera stringers in Syria. Around 30 fire engines and ambulances, as well as 70 local residents with children transported from a refugee camp were used in the filming of the al-Jazeera clip across three locations in Idlib province, including Jisr Shughur.

The “effectiveness” of the White Helmets’ TV spectacle of accusing Syrian authorities of attacking civilians in Khan Shaykhun with sarin inspired terrorists to continue filming the fake series. According to info confirmed via several channels, al-Jazeera television channel stringers have recently filmed a staged, fake scene of an alleged chemical attack against civilians by the Syrian Army. A multiple simultaneous uploading of filmed fake footage with ‘screaming’ social media comments was due to take place in the next few days (by Sunday) at the separate command of a mastermind and sponsor of the film in one of the European countries.

This filming was said to have been ordered from a European country. It wouldn’t be the first time. In Dec 2016, Egyptian police arrested 5 men for making staged “wounded children” photos, which they planned to use to misrepresent on social media as photos of destruction and injured people in Aleppo. On Apr 4, the rebels claimed that 80 people were killed and 200 injured in a suspected chemical attack by the government on Khan Shaykhun. Damascus vehemently rejected the accusations and said the rebels were responsible. That video served as a the basis for Trump to launch 59 Tomahawk missiles at the Syrian military airfiled in ash-Shairat.  Trump said the attack was a response to the alleged chemical weapon use in Syria’s Idlib, which Washington has blamed on the Syrian government. Meanwhile, Russia described the attack as an aggression against a sovereign state, while the Russian Foreign Ministry reminded the Trump administration that all chemical weapons had been taken out of Syria in mid-2014 as Jackass Kerry infamously declared in 2014. Discussing the attack, Assad said in an interview with Sputnik that Western states were blocking attempts to investigate the Idlib chemical incident because in the event of a probe it will be established that the “attack” was a false flag and lie. In Jan 2016 the OPCW announced that Syria’s CW arsenal had been destroyed in accordance with an agreement reached after the 2013 Ghouta attack.

Trump Rages “‘Fake News’ Media Is Officially Out Of Control”
Tyler Durden, Zero Hedge, May 4 2017


While it is unclear what the specific catalyst for this morning’s outburst is (CNN censorship, flip-flopping over spending bill, coverage of Susan Rice?), President Trump has taken to Twitter to express his ongoing dissatisfaction with the mainstream media’s coverage of his presidency…

Although he did have something positive to say…

Turning elsewhere for inspiration:

Rice declines Senate request to testify on Russian hacking
Jim Sciutto, Manu Raju, CNN, May 3 2017

FASCHINGSTEIN – Susan Rice, Pres Obama’s former national security adviser, on Wednesday declined Sen Lindsey Graham’s request to participate in a judiciary subcommittee hearing next week on Russian interference in the election, CNN has learned. A letter obtained exclusively by CNN from Rice’s lawyer Kathryn Ruemmler outlines the grounds for her decision not to appear. It was addressed to Graham, the chairman of the judiciary subcommittee on crime and terrorism, which is holding the hearing, and senior Demagog Sheldon Whitehouse. Ruemmler wrote:

Senator Whitehouse has informed us by letter that he did not agree to Chairman Graham’s invitation to Ambassador Rice, a significant departure from the bipartisan invitations extended to other witnesses. Under these circumstances, Ambassador Rice respectfully declines Senator Graham’s invitation to testify.

A source familiar with Rice’s discussions told CNN that when Graham invited her, Rice believed it was a bipartisan overture and was prepared to accept. However, Whitehouse indicated to her that the invitation was made without his agreement, as he believed her presence was not relevant to the topic of the hearing, according to the source. Rice considered the invitation a “diversionary play” to distract attention from the investigation into Russian election interference, including contacts between Trump allies and Russians during the campaign, the source said. Whitehouse told CNN:

With the exception of that invitation, Senator Graham and I have agreed on all witnesses that have been invited to this hearing. I don’t believe that Dr Rice’s participation is germane to the topic of this hearing, and I believe her presence would be a distraction from the critical issues at hand. I fully support her decision not to testify.

On Wednesday evening, Graham expressed concern that he learned about Rice’s decision from the press, and not from the former Obama adviser herself. Graham suggested that he wasn’t prepared to subpoena her yet, but said he wants to have a hearing on the issue of “unmasking” the identities of Pindostanis caught up in surveillance reports before he votes on reauthorizing a key section of the Foreign Intelligence Surveillance Act, and he said he wants to learn what she did to unmask identities of Pindostanis. He said:

I’m disappointed. I don’t know why she won’t come before the committee to tell us what she did or didn’t do. But we’ll deal with her later. I want to know about unmasking. Apparently the number of unmasking requests tripled last year, versus 2015 … I want to know who can unmask an American citizen’s name whose caught up in surveillance, and what they can do with that information.

Graham first told CNN before the letter was sent that he had invited Rice to address the Senate panel to determine whether the Obama administration “tried to politicize intelligence.” This was part of his broader investigation into Russian meddling in the 2016 elections. Former Deputy Attorney General Sally Yates and former DNI Clapper are set to testify. Rethugs have raised concerns that Rice may have acted improperly while she was national security adviser by seeking to learn the identities of Trump officials discussing matters with foreign officials related to the Trump transition. Those officials were caught up in intelligence surveillance of the foreign officials and had their identities unmasked after at first being referred to anonymously in the intelligence records. Pres Trump at one point alleged Rice broke the law by requesting the unmasking of individuals’ identities. Trump had claimed the matter was a “massive story.” Critturs and aides have so far found no evidence that Obama administration officials did anything unusual or illegal, multiple sources in both parties have told CNN. Despite declining the appearance, Rice’s lawyer assured Graham and Whitehouse:

(Dr Rice is) prepared to assist Congressional inquiries into Russian election interference, because of the important national interests at stake, provided they are conducted in a bipartisan manner, and as appropriate in classified session.
