MIT analysis says misplaced blame 'could have led to unjustified U.S. military action'

A just-published report from the Massachusetts Institute of Technology confirms earlier reports by WND that the Syrian government could not have launched the sarin poison-gas-laden rocket last Aug. 21 into a Syrian suburb of Damascus that killed hundreds of civilians, many of whom were children.

At the same time, the report disputes continued U.S. insistence that the Syrian government was at fault, a position that almost prompted the United States to launch military attacks on Syrian chemical depots.

The chemical attack, in which some estimates of deaths from the attack approached 1,800 people, occurred in the Ghouta area then under Syrian opposition control in the midst of the Syrian civil war.

The report concluded that the range of the rocket that delivered the sarin was too short to have been fired from Syrian government locations, even though the Obama administration, based on what it says was technical intelligence, said – and still insists – the gas attack was from the government forces of Syrian President Bashar al-Assad.

The report said a large canister to hold the chemicals was placed on top of the rocket, limiting the capability of the rocket.

Furthermore, the report said the design’s two-foot long, tin can-like canister to hold the chemicals as a warhead on the end of four-foot, 350mm rocket was nothing like what was in the inventory of the Syrian military.

The report added that the rocket could have been constructed by anyone with “access to a machine shop with modest capabilities,” implying that the crudely constructed rocket with its tin can warhead could have been devised by the Syrian opposition, a prospect reinforced by separate information given to the United Nations for investigation.

The 46-page MIT report, titled “Possible Implications of Faulty U.S. Technical Intelligence in the Damascus Nerve Agent Attack of August 21, 2013,” was written by Richard Lloyd, former U.N. weapons inspector from Tesla Laboratories Inc., of Arlington, Va., and Theorore A. Postol, professor of science, technology and national security policy of MIT. It was put out by the MIT Science, Technology, and Global Security Working Group.

they're inventing events so he can use his POISON PEN more often and with harsher impact. The FOOL MUST GO !!!! He knows NOTHING about ANYTHING ! hmmmm is that a double negative ? Let's put it simply... He's an IDIOT !

RIGHT ON POINT

HE IS A BIG IDIOT FRAUD WHO DOES NOT

BELONG IN THE OVAL OFFICE.

Most informed thinking people believe the chemical attack was executed by the rebels and not the Syrian government but that Barry insists it was the government so he can gain support in toppling Assad and allowing the Muslim brotherhood to take over as they have in many of the Mid East counties under Barry's watch. Barry is on the site of evil and Islam, which are one and the same. Islam needs to go, and Barry along with it.

YES SIR TOTALLY RIGHT

We need to take action against this maniac. We need to rally to protect our troops. O is doing this because he's jealous of Puton.the world thinks we're a joke for allowing this Muslim nut run our country into hell

One day we will know more but first we must get this country back on track so the good guys can come out in the open .......now they fight from dark corners !

Folks, his lips were moving, that was a given sign that he was not telling the truth.

When i read about Benghazi ,Syria and other problems involving the Obama administration , the insanity makes my brain hurt! The double standard is blatant. The Obama admin blamed the president of of Syria based on "It happened on his watch." hence he is responsible. They use the same front when it comes to Gov. Cris Cristy, "Bridge gate happened on his watch." Yet Obama has the IRS, NSA, Bengali, NSA and never hold Obama responsibly for these actions being preformed by Obama and his administration; no accountability!

Obama and Biden are as useful as tits on a mule!

LOVE YOUR COMMENT  I AM STILL LAUGHING.

He probably watched the CNN between basketball games.

OF COURSE HE DID AND HE WILL TRY IT AGAIN FOR SURE .THE NOBEL PEACE PRIZE NEEDS TO GO BACK TO OSLO .

Florida Sheriff — “I Will Not Enforce Assault Weapons Ban, Neither Will Most Sheriffs”

Dennis Lemma, who is the Sheriff in Central Florida’s Seminole County, told a group of 2nd Amendment activists recently that he would not enforce an assault weapons ban that could soon become Florida law if the “Ban Assault Weapons Now” amendment passes in the Sunshine State.

According to News965, the ban has the following specifications.

The amendment proposed in the state legislature would ban possession of assault weapons, which are defined as “semiautomatic rifles and shotguns capable of holding more than 10 rounds of ammunition at once, either in fixed or detachable magazine, or any other ammunition feeding device.”

Lemma, an ardent supporter of the 2nd Amendment and a first term sheriff who is running for re-election, said this about whether or not he would enforce such a law.

“It’s not only that I wouldn’t, the majority of sheriffs across the state would not do it,” Lemma said in the video. It’s up to the sheriffs what they are willing to enforce.”
