Kerry Refuses Israeli Intel on Assad’s Use of Chemical Weapons

Obama has said he would use force in Syria if it used chemical weapons. No wonder Kerry denies Israeli intel that Assad used nerve gas. And didn’t the US once reject Israel’s info on Iran’s nuke work?

After a non-committal answer, another journalist asked Ventrell is he thought “Israelis are making it up with respect to the chemicals since you didn’t concur with the report?”

And another asked,  “How come it’s taking you so much longer than some of your allies to make this determination? Because three of your allies now, three of your closest, have gone on and said that they believe, in fact, chemical weapons are being used. What is – do they have greater technical know-how than the United States now?

And guess what Ventrell said? Right, nothing much, to wit:

“I’m not going to get into intelligence assessments here from this podium, but at this time we are continuing to monitor and we’re continuing to look at all available evidence….

“I think we’ve done what we can on this one. Do we have other topics?”

WARNING: The video below, released by Syrian rebels in December and showing chemical wounds, contains graphic images that may be offensive.

    Just another case of obama lying and hiding FACTS about terrorism and jihad: Benghazi; bin Laden; al Qaeda; Boston; Fort Hood; and assad's gas.

    Another day another obama obfuscation. He would rather see Americans, Jews and Christians massacred then anger his overlords in jihad.

    Arie's Pragmatic Politics · With all due respect, our Dept. of State has been practicing the art of deceit decades before baby Obama took his first look at the Kenyan Savanna…

  4. I noticed how familiar the situation in the middle east looks compared to what the Bible states will happen in Isaiah 17. Did you know that Damascus Syria has historically remained inhabited from the time of it’s founding until today? Despite military losses it has always been populated. Yet Isaiah 17 states that God will take it away from being a city. That has not happened as of yet. If God chooses to use mans weapons of mass destruction as one of the tools to bring that about then today’s news concerning Assad should get you interested enough to take a longer look at that short chapter. In addition Iran continues determined in it’s march in the development of nuclear weapons. Current intelligence seems uncertain of when Iran will get the bomb and Israel cannot afford to gamble with this. Yet here we are with the clock ticking. In July of 2012 I wrote a small book that lists some of what the Bible says will happen in the end times as well as what will happen during the period known as the seven (360 day) year tribulation and other soon to take place events. I don’t accept donations and it’s free. It’s about 6 or 7 pages, so it’s a short read. I encourage you to have a look: http://www.booksie.com/religion_and_spirituality/book/richard_b_barnes/after-the-rapture-whats-next.

  5. Myriam Obadia says:

    As usual, The US Pollyanna poo-poos the warning from Israel Cassandra. When will the rest of the world remember that Cassandra was right?
    With all due respect Arie, Perry is the one shooting down the warning: Obama hasn't said a word so far. Yori, Obama didn't get to see the Kenyan Savannah until he was an adult. Please, no matter how much of a wuss Obama is in International Politics, do not vehicle lies. We, in Israel, know too well what it feels like to be on the receiving end of lies and propaganda to be doing it to others.
