12 U.S. Intelligence Officials Tell Obama It Wasn’t Assad

Editor Note: Despite the Obama administration’s supposedly “high confidence” regarding Syrian government guilt over the Aug. 21 chemical attack near Damascus, a dozen former U.S. military and intelligence officials are telling President Obama that they are picking up information that undercuts the Official Story.

MEMORANDUM FOR: The President

FROM: Veteran Intelligence Professionals for Sanity (VIPS)

SUBJECT: Is Syria a Trap?

Precedence: IMMEDIATE

We regret to inform you that some of our former co-workers are telling us, categorically, that contrary to the claims of your administration, the most reliable intelligence shows that Bashar al-Assad was NOT responsible for the chemical incident that killed and injured Syrian civilians on August 21, and that British intelligence officials also know this. In writing this brief report, we choose to assume that you have not been fully informed because your advisers decided to afford you the opportunity for what is commonly known as “plausible denial.”

We have been down this road before – with President George W. Bush, to whom we addressed our first VIPS memorandum immediately after Colin Powell’s Feb. 5, 2003 U.N. speech, in which he peddled fraudulent “intelligence” to support attacking Iraq. Then, also, we chose to give President Bush the benefit of the doubt, thinking he was being misled – or, at the least, very poorly advised.

Secretary of State John Kerry departs for a Sept. 6 trip to Europe where he plans to meet with officials to discuss the Syrian crisis and other issues. (State Department photo)

The fraudulent nature of Powell’s speech was a no-brainer. And so, that very afternoon we strongly urged your predecessor to “widen the discussion beyond …  the circle of those advisers clearly bent on a war for which we see no compelling reason and from which we believe the unintended consequences are likely to be catastrophic.” We offer you the same advice today.

Our sources confirm that a chemical incident of some sort did cause fatalities and injuries on August 21 in a suburb of Damascus. They insist, however, that the incident was not the result of an attack by the Syrian Army using military-grade chemical weapons from its arsenal. That is the most salient fact, according to CIA officers working on the Syria issue. They tell us that CIA Director John Brennan is perpetrating a pre-Iraq-War-type fraud on members of Congress, the media, the public – and perhaps even you.

We have observed John Brennan closely over recent years and, sadly, we find what our former colleagues are now telling us easy to believe. Sadder still, this goes in spades for those of us who have worked with him personally; we give him zero credence. And that goes, as well, for his titular boss, Director of National Intelligence James Clapper, who has admitted he gave “clearly erroneous” sworn testimony to Congress denying NSA eavesdropping on Americans.

Intelligence Summary or Political Ploy?

That Secretary of State John Kerry would invoke Clapper’s name this week in Congressional testimony, in an apparent attempt to enhance the credibility of the four-page “Government Assessment” strikes us as odd. The more so, since it was, for some unexplained reason, not Clapper but the White House that released the “assessment.”

This is not a fine point. We know how these things are done. Although the “Government Assessment” is being sold to the media as an “intelligence summary,” it is a political, not an intelligence document. The drafters, massagers, and fixers avoided presenting essential detail. Moreover, they conceded upfront that, though they pinned “high confidence” on the assessment, it still fell “short of confirmation.”

Déjà Fraud: This brings a flashback to the famous Downing Street Minutes of July 23, 2002, on Iraq, The minutes record the Richard Dearlove, then head of British intelligence, reporting to Prime Minister Tony Blair and other senior officials that President Bush had decided to remove Saddam Hussein through military action that would be “justified by the conjunction of terrorism and WMD.” Dearlove had gotten the word from then-CIA Director George Tenet whom he visited at CIA headquarters on July 20.

The discussion that followed centered on the ephemeral nature of the evidence, prompting Dearlove to explain: “But the intelligence and facts were being fixed around the policy.” We are concerned that this is precisely what has happened with the “intelligence” on Syria.

The Intelligence

There is a growing body of evidence from numerous sources in the Middle East — mostly affiliated with the Syrian opposition and its supporters — providing a strong circumstantial case that the August 21 chemical incident was a pre-planned provocation by the Syrian opposition and its Saudi and Turkish supporters. The aim is reported to have been to create the kind of incident that would bring the United States into the war.

According to some reports, canisters containing chemical agent were brought into a suburb of Damascus, where they were then opened. Some people in the immediate vicinity died; others were injured.

We are unaware of any reliable evidence that a Syrian military rocket capable of carrying a chemical agent was fired into the area. In fact, we are aware of no reliable physical evidence to support the claim that this was a result of a strike by a Syrian military unit with expertise in chemical weapons.

In addition, we have learned that on August 13-14, 2013, Western-sponsored opposition forces in Turkey started advance preparations for a major, irregular military surge. Initial meetings between senior opposition military commanders and Qatari, Turkish and U.S. intelligence officials took place at the converted Turkish military garrison in Antakya, Hatay Province, now used as the command center and headquarters of the Free Syrian Army (FSA) and their foreign sponsors.

Senior opposition commanders who came from Istanbul pre-briefed the regional commanders on an imminent escalation in the fighting due to “a war-changing development,” which, in turn, would lead to a U.S.-led bombing of Syria.

At operations coordinating meetings at Antakya, attended by senior Turkish, Qatari and U.S. intelligence officials as well as senior commanders of the Syrian opposition, the Syrians were told that the bombing would start in a few days. Opposition leaders were ordered to prepare their forces quickly to exploit the U.S. bombing, march into Damascus, and remove the Bashar al-Assad government

The Qatari and Turkish intelligence officials assured the Syrian regional commanders that they would be provided with plenty of weapons for the coming offensive. And they were. A weapons distribution operation unprecedented in scope began in all opposition camps on August 21-23. The weapons were distributed from storehouses controlled by Qatari and Turkish intelligence under the tight supervision of U.S. intelligence officers.

Cui bono?

That the various groups trying to overthrow Syrian President Bashar al-Assad have ample incentive to get the U.S. more deeply involved in support of that effort is clear. Until now, it has not been quite as clear that the Netanyahu government in Israel has equally powerful incentive to get Washington more deeply engaged in yet another war in the area. But with outspoken urging coming from Israel and those Americans who lobby for Israeli interests, this priority Israeli objective is becoming crystal clear.

Reporter Judi Rudoren, writing from Jerusalem in an important article in Friday’s New York Times addresses Israeli motivation in an uncommonly candid way. Her article, titled “Israel Backs Limited Strike Against Syria,” notes that the Israelis have argued, quietly, that the best outcome for Syria’s two-and-a-half-year-old civil war, at least for the moment, is no outcome. Rudoren continues:

“For Jerusalem, the status quo, horrific as it may be from a humanitarian perspective, seems preferable to either a victory by Mr. Assad’s government and his Iranian backers or a strengthening of rebel groups, increasingly dominated by Sunni jihadis.

“‘This is a playoff situation in which you need both teams to lose, but at least you don’t want one to win — we’ll settle for a tie,’ said Alon Pinkas, a former Israeli consul general in New York. ‘Let them both bleed, hemorrhage to death: that’s the strategic thinking here. As long as this lingers, there’s no real threat from Syria.’”

We think this is the way Israel’s current leaders look at the situation in Syria, and that deeper U.S. involvement – albeit, initially, by “limited” military strikes – is likely to ensure that there is no early resolution of the conflict in Syria. The longer Sunni and Shia are at each other’s throats in Syria and in the wider region, the safer Israel calculates that it is.

That Syria’s main ally is Iran, with whom it has a mutual defense treaty, also plays a role in Israeli calculations. Iran’s leaders are not likely to be able to have much military impact in Syria, and Israel can highlight that as an embarrassment for Tehran.

Iran’s Role

Iran can readily be blamed by association and charged with all manner of provocation, real and imagined. Some have seen Israel’s hand in the provenance of the most damaging charges against Assad regarding chemical weapons and our experience suggests to us that such is supremely possible.

Possible also is a false-flag attack by an interested party resulting in the sinking or damaging, say, of one of the five U.S. destroyers now on patrol just west of Syria. Our mainstream media could be counted on to milk that for all it’s worth, and you would find yourself under still more pressure to widen U.S. military involvement in Syria – and perhaps beyond, against Iran.

Iran has joined those who blame the Syrian rebels for the August 21 chemical incident, and has been quick to warn the U.S. not to get more deeply involved. According to the Iranian English-channel Press TV, Iranian Foreign Minister Mohammad Javid Zarif has claimed: “The Syria crisis is a trap set by Zionist pressure groups for [the United States].”

Actually, he may be not far off the mark. But we think your advisers may be chary of entertaining this notion. Thus, we see as our continuing responsibility to try to get word to you so as to ensure that you and other decision makers are given the full picture.

Inevitable Retaliation

We hope your advisers have warned you that retaliation for attacks on Syrian are not a matter of IF, but rather WHERE and WHEN. Retaliation is inevitable. For example, terrorist strikes on U.S. embassies and other installations are likely to make what happened to the U.S. “Mission” in Benghazi on Sept. 11, 2012, look like a minor dust-up by comparison. One of us addressed this key consideration directly a week ago in an article titled “Possible Consequences of a U.S. Military Attack on Syria – Remembering the U.S. Marine Barracks Destruction in Beirut, 1983.”

    Wow If this is true…
    “At operations coordinating meetings at Antakya, attended by senior Turkish, Qatari and U.S. intelligence officials as well as senior commanders of the Syrian opposition, the Syrians were told that the bombing would start in a few days. Opposition leaders were ordered to prepare their forces quickly to exploit the U.S. bombing, march into Damascus, and remove the Bashar al-Assad government”

    So – not only are “US Intelligence officials” aware of the truth, but they are actively involved in the operations.

    If so, that makes Oblama and Kerry exactly what they have been claiming Assad to be – flat out criminals. Not only have they committed wanton international crimes against humanity by planning and carrying out a terrorist attack on innocents inside a sovereign nation, but they have committed treason on the United States of America by lying to congress, the American people, and the rest of the world about war acts.

    Not only are they true criminals, but they have also trampled the US Constitution that they have sworn to uphold.

    These people need to be removed from power immediately and placed in a prison cell.

    If this can be proved it is a smoking gun of the highest order – and evidence of an entirely new and despicable level of international tyranny that anyone who loves our country should/would abhor.

    I urge any citizen of the US – whether military, intelligence, congress, or just Joe or Jane on the street – to internalize what is being laid out above.

    This country needs to be taken back from this level of dangerous treason, criminality and lies, and it starts with you.

    The truth doesn’t matter. There is only what Israel wants. With the NSA/Israeli blackmail machine (through IDF linked companies, Narus & Verint, Gen. Alexander should be arrested as a foreign agent) Obama (& others) will do as told.

    All NSA blackmail victims should resign.

    • Alan D Smith

      It doesn’t matter what Israel (the Jews) wants. Only the fake-Jewish Zionist banksters’ opinions matter. Their demockery serves only the will of their .001%. The Zionists (the “zi” in Nazi) ran Hitler’s concentration camps, hijacked our currencies and governments, instituted all ten planks of the Communist Manifesto in all their countries in their “free” world and enslaved the Jews just like they’ve enslaved Us all. They intend to transfer all Our wealth to them.
      After raiding their own banks to prove they were broke, as “their” corporate governments were bailing them out with trillions of dollars for engineering the financial virus that took down the global economy, their banks were continuously foreclosing on our properties in which they had absolutely nothing invested, because all bank loans are frauds including the national debts. They fund their so-called “loans” from thin air with book keeping entries alone. They risk no “VALUABLE CONSIDERATION” as required by law for a legally binding contract. Quite a racket.

      They also wage a perpetual, secret War On All Humanity utilizing every conceivable covert weapon to dumb-down, confuse, deceive, sicken, poison, disenfranchise, un-empower, fraudulently indebt and foreclose, dispossess, un-employ, impoverish, divide, conquer, enslave and exterminate us. They’re Humanity’s only real threat and only true enemy. Life without them will be like paradise.

      • ghilmeini

        Blame the Jews. Very nice of you to include the ancient lie of poisoning. How original.

        Just for the record:

        There never was any alliance between Jews and Hitler, ever.
        Karl Marx’ communist ideology was purely atheist with no benefit to Jews, much less Zionism, witness the Soviets siding with all of Israel enemies over the years.
        There is no evidence whatsoever that the concentration camps were ever run by anyone other than Hitler’s SS at his direction with the full cooperation of all organs of the Nazi Party and the German State.
        Explain how a people benefits from losing 1/3 of its population works as a strategy.

        The bottom line is Israel is reparations for 2000 years of this kind of hatred. It has developed a nuclear capability because of the hatred in your heart Alan Smith.

        Left with a choice of elimination or forming a nation, a Jewish state was born. If it causes your head to explode, GREAT!

  • ThePurpleCrab

    Regardless of the will of the ‘We the People’ and the rest of the world, Obama and the zionists intend to forge ahead with a dangerous and provocative plan which has no good outcome.

      You’re absolutely right, let’s ask the intelligence groups that fired several of them for things like Provance’s exposure of Abu Ghraib Prison, Rowley’s whistle-blowing on the mishandling of information in regards to September 11th attacks, or Drake who was charged and after the prosecutions failed attempt at (basically) making their entire case and the court proceedings “classified” from public view, dropped all the charges – Army Intelligence, FBI, and NSA respectively. Those guys are way better sources, historically speaking ;-)

    Am I reading this correctly that the 12 U.S. Intelligence Officials are in fact already retired??

    How can retired personnel be able to shed light on current intelligence that they may not have full or even any access to?? Just makes me very curious.

      Read the article again. You’ll get there.

    • anti_republocrat

      They have friends who are still inside who are apparently scared sh&&less and leaking all over the place. BTW, the rest of us should also be scared sh&&less with both Russian and Chinese naval vessels entering the area.

      All these 12 admittedly have a bias, but they aren’t going to jeapordize their credibility by lying and their integrity is unimpeachable. Let’s hope they can get some of their friends to resign.

  • james

    It seems to me that if anyone – the intelligence community; the Syrian government; the Russians or the blogosphere – can identify solid evidence of the US having pre-meditated knowledge of this chemical weapons attack, then the US citizenry will turn on Oblama, Mcshame and Kerry like an old west vigilante crew.

    It shouldn’t be hard, the following will suffice:

    - proof of the meeting and agenda on the 13-14th in Antakya with the members above present. (Isn’t that where McShame met the “rebel leaders” earlier this year?)

    - proof of US Naval assets relocating or preparing to relocate prior to the chemical attack on the 21st. You cannot ready hundreds of cruise missiles for launch overnight.

    - communications to US allies or assets that a “war changing development” was imminent…

    - proof of which side pulled their friends and family out of the area prior to the chemical attack.

    In my own observation, the described sequence of events in this letter fits perfectly. Oblama was too quick to blame after the “chemical weapon attack” – immediately claiming he knew what was going on, and going for the military option. In reality it takes days or weeks to understand what happened on the ground and who is responsible. Of course the public could see right through the false motives.

    I bet Oblama has realized he’s backed himself completely into a corner on this. He can’t back down, because whoever put him up to it will be angry, and he will lose what little credibility he has left ( he sees himself growing old with W, waiting for somebody to call him to give a speech to their lions club meeting) He can’t go ahead with it, because he now realizes that WWIII is a real possibility. and the American people – who are on to the charade and aren’t buying it, will be livid. It seems like the only thing his handlers can think to do is to pile the lies higher and deeper.

    Of course at this point Congressional leaders are so stupid they don’t realize that they are painting themselves into exactly the same corner, and Oblama is happy to find somebody to share the heat.

    Personally, I think whoever killed thousands of innocents with chemical weapons should burn at the stake – If that’s Assad (which I think is highly unlikely) he should burn. If it’s Oblama – I think we have a nice warm cell in guantanamo for global terrorists. I bet he could make some friends down there -

  • ozlanthos

    This is bull. It assumes that we are not Al Quada… And as Libya has shown, we are Al Quada…They might not be Americans, they may not have any love or respect for this country, but they do like our money, they are being trained by the CIA, they are being armed by us, and they call us for air/artillery strikes. That is as “us” as you can get without being an American serving in the US military and wearing a US military uniform!

  • Grand1

    This sounds more like a manifesto to attack Iran and get deeper into this fiasco than to refute what is clearly superior intelligence. The “evidence” is in the hands of the U.N. inspectors and will be released by them at the time they indicated. This is just more disguied drum beat to a wider war. Have any of them seen the classified briefing that members of congress will view? I have. It is horrific watching children die before your eyes and whoever is responsible for the release of chemical weapons must be held accountable. If you are retired. Stay there like President Bush. If you want to spin conspiracy scenarios, get on Fox News. I will awaite the evidence when it is presented.

  • brianeast

    Before anyone gets upset at the current serving professional (US) intelligence apparatus, you must realize that the professionals actually do know, or assess with a high degree of certainty, the truth. It is a problem as you go to the highest “careerist” (self-serving) functionaries; the interface between true intelligence and political expedience. (I was one [of the pros]). The reasons politicians want to intervene may be compelling to themselves, but might not reflect the will of the people (if they were permitted to know the truth), so that will must be manufactured. Such as for Iraq. Such as for the Merkale Market Square in Sarajevo. Heck, such as “the Maine”. I like this VIPS group for being professionals, putting out a proper intelligence assessment. In this age of information technology, is it possible the masses may be permitted to know the truth and, more importantly, if their elected representatives are doing what the masses (their employers, actually) want?

  • Douglas Jack

    I appreciate VIPS’ assessment by those who have decades experience for intelligence operations in the field for all of their limitations. All intelligence is part of a paradigm of worldviews, perspectives & culture. For those looking for a broad range of intelligence on Syria not covered by mainstream news. As well for those interested in Satyagraha (Hindi ‘truth-search’), Dialectic, Cultural & Dialogue approaches to peace here are some tangible applications.

    US, Canadian, NATO, Israeli, Saudi manufacture, arming, supply, financing of foreign mercenaries (over 50% of supposed Syrian rebel forces), delivery of Sarin Nerve Gas (from Germany & the media’s False-Flag cover-up. We’ve a case of ‘Intellectual-Cowardice’, for western aligned nations whose economies are committed to war, but don’t know how to engage supposed enemies in equal-time, recorded & published formal dialogues.

    Here’s a compilation of international expert sources for those who believe in looking at both-sides & truly want peace. https://sites.google.com/site/indigenecommunity/e-history/8-nuclear-war

    There are Dialectic (‘both-sided’) equal-time, recorded & published dialogue approaches, which must become de rigeur in human relations as all humanity understood during our 100s of 1000s of years of ‘indigenous’ (Latin ‘self-generating’) peace & prosperity. We need to create a culture of dialectic rights in every home, school, company, institution, law & government with processes for every person having the right to challenge events & structures through dialogue. https://sites.google.com/site/indigenecommunity/structure/both-sides-now-equal-time-recorded-dialogues

    Socrates promoted Dialectics in ‘academia’ (‘the garden of Academus in Athens’. Mohandas Gandhi promoted ‘Satyagraha’ (Hindi ‘truth-search’) involving everyone including the recalcitrant & murderous British in open public community dialogues stimulated with the questions, “What are your best intentions & how can we help you fulfill these?”

    So the Mossad took a 30 year old plan to manipulate America’s White House with agents of influence and proved a success yet again. Perhaps the CIA should be dissolved and the Mossad formed in the States. In the meantime, the 3 Iranian boats the CIA built, manned with navy seals are off the radar. Nukes recently repositioned to the Iranian realm. Interesting how the American people do not support a Syrian attack and yet the prez has the joint chiefs staging 75,000 US troops paper plan for occupying Syria. If Assad is secular but modern and all the rest want a sharia state WTF is the White House thinking? Syria’s chemical weapons and 600,000 man army would they be better under Muslim faith rule… If I was a Jew I’d be concerned with the direction the Mossad is going, the retaliation from Iran and Syria will make September 11 look like a pillow fight. Listen to general Clark, he warned America, no one in power cares.
