We all know that Barack Insane Obama has made some fatally bad decisions, like Arming Mexican drug cartels and trying to arrange the kidnapping of a US Ambassador and providing Stinger missiles to Al Qaeda. Seems like Barack Insane Obama isn’t the only world leader capable of making Obama grade decisions failures though. Now it seems just about everybody wants to get in on the act.
A minister in Benjamin Netanyahu’s Cabinet publicly asserted that Bashar al-Assad and his forces used chemical weapons, and not the rebels in the Damascus suburb, and used them on a mass scale. International Relations Minister Yuval Steintz said it was “crystal clear” that the Syrian army used chemical weapons in the attack last week, arguing that this demonstrates why it is important to stop Iran from getting nuclear weapons:
It is “crystal clear” that Syrian President Bashar Assad used chemical weapons five days ago in an attack that killed hundreds of people, International Relations Minister Yuval Steintz said Monday.
Although it is true that this is not the first time Assad has used chemical weapons, Steinitz said, saying he has used them two or three times in the past, this is the first time he has used them on a mass scale.
Steinitz, speaking at a press conference sponsored by the Jerusalem Press Club, said that this was the first time chemical weapons were used on a mass scale against civilians since Saddam Hussein used them two decades ago.
Picking up on a theme Prime Minister Binyamin Netanyahu first spoke of publicly on Sunday, Steinitz said that “what happened in Syria should remind us how dangerous it is if Iran is able to complete its military nuclear project and produce atomic bombs.”
Steinitz said that just as the Syrians used chemical weapons against their own people, the Iranians are capable of using nuclear weapons because, like the Syrians, they have “no moral compunctions.”
Why is Steintz so convinced it was Assad and not the al-Qaeda affiliates who deployed the chemical weapons? According to the German news magazine Focus, the IDF intercepted high-level communications in the Syrian government at the time, and has the record of orders to use the weapons:
“According to the findings of Israeli intelligence community, Syrian President Bashar al-Assad is responsible for the gas attack in Damascus,” reports the publication.
According to FOCUS, the Israel Defense Forces Unit 8200, the IDF’s signals intelligence unit, had intercepted communications of the Syrian army during the attack.
“A former Mossad officer told FOCUS the analysis has clearly shown that the bombardment with poison gas missiles was made by Syrian government forces,” reports the publication.
A professor at the Naval War College noted on Twitter that the findings were quickly shared with the US and other Western allies, and took a parting dig at Glenn Greenwald:
Clear inference is Unit 8200 SIGINT findings re: Assad regime & chem attack were quickly shared with USG & close allies, incl Germany.

Or, in Greenwaldese: Israeli SIGINT violation of Assad’s “private communication” was illegally shared with rogue intel partners.

That won’t leave the US and the UN with too many options — and it won’t leave the Syrians with too many, either. Bloomberg notes that Assad is hoping Russia can bail Syria out of this jam:
The French have been suicidally ecstatic over the possibility of attacking Syria for quite some time now, and the British war-hawks likewise have been nosing around for a fight to interject themselves into. What comes more of a surprise is the Israeli shift in policy. Now I won’t go into Bashar Assad much, kind of a redundant thing to do, he is a man with very limited options and none of them good. For him to make a Obama grade decision failure is not a surprise, it was inevitable.
No, the real surprise was like I said that of the Israeli’s. They of all people know who it is that Bashar Assad is fighting against, Bashar is up against the Muslim Brotherhood and Al Qaeda. While Bashar Assad is no one in the western worlds idea of a good guy or hero, when realistically compared to the Muslim Brotherhood and Al Qaeda that is exactly how he comes out looking.
So, Barack Insane Obama,having already overthrown the Governments of Egypt and Libya on behalf of the Muslim Brotherhood and Al Qaeda is all set to follow up with doing the same thing in Syria. Hell, Insane in the Brain Obama already provided the Muslim Brotherhood and Al Qaeda with should fired Stinger missiles to use against Assad. (What in the hell did you think Benghazi was really all about?)
The problem here is, that Assad was winning. His decision to use chemical weapons, (if indeed he did and the Israeli claims are not a disinformation campaign) was a true Obama grade decision failure on his part. At my age (having lived through a very significant portion of the cold war), it is a bit stunning and humbling to hear the Russian diplomats speaking as the voice of reason and sanity in that particular region of the world.
To hear that the average Egyptian believes that Barack Insane Obama is providing material support to the Muslim Brotherhood really isn’t much of a surprise, as the American Fifth Column Treasonous Media has been extraordinarily faithful to report the craziest and most insane conspiracy theories that have originated throughout the Arab Muslim communities over the years. What is disturbing is hearing how many American’s hold the same beliefs.
There seems to be something of a disconnect between who Egyptians think America is supporting, and who America actually is supporting in Cairo. In the U.S., story after story has been written about how the Obama Administration has bent over backwards not to call this latest change in government a “coup” and has been relatively muted in its reaction to the deaths of so many civilians – upwards of 1,000 in the last week alone.
Yet Egyptians remain convinced that President Obama is backing the Muslim Brotherhood and deposed President Mohamed Morsi. At a lunch at the Egyptian Ambassador’s residence on Thursday, Dr. Mohamed Abou El-Ghar, head of the Egyptian Social Democratic Party, bluntly warned a small gathering of journalists and policy wonks that he fears, “America is losing Egypt…There is a very strong perception that they are supporting the Muslim Brotherhood and they are against other parties,” he said.
The perception began even before the Egyptians elected Morsi, Abou el-Ghar said, when Senator John McCain, an Arizona Republican and 2008 GOP presidential nominee, met with members of the Muslin Brotherhood in February 2012 but not representatives from competing parties. The headlines were: U.S. Warms to the Muslim Brotherhood. It was furthered when U.S. Ambassador to Egypt Anne Patterson criticized Egypt’s military for interfering in July when opponents deposed Morsi. That view has become more widespread since, with the Pentagon’s decision to defer delivery of F-16 fighter jets to Egypt and the Administration’s review of aid to Cairo.
The latest evidence of Obama’s purported proclivity towards the Brotherhood came in Thursday’s State Department briefing, which has made headlines in Egypt. In it, spokesman Jen Psaki says that the choice to detain of former Egyptian President Hosni Mubarak is an “internal Egyptian legal matter,” but in the next breath calls for the release of Morsi, who is accused of many serious crimes. Egyptians took this as further evidence that America is intervening on behalf of the Brotherhood still:
Regardless of whether Bashar Assad made the Obama grade bad decision to employe chemical weapons or not, what does seem evident is that various powerful government officials in France, Britain, the US and now even Israel have decided that Bashar Assad absolutely must be removed from power at any cost. So if and when this coalition of useless imbeciles and fools does attack Syria, you can be absolutely certain that the consequences will be catastrophically bad, for a) the Syrians (especially the Syrian Christians) b) for Israel (Helloieeee Al Qaeda/Muslim Brotherhood run government on their border) and everyone who foolishly participates in the attack.
Let me make this 100 percent perfectly crystal clear, their are absolutely no positive consequences or benefits to helping Al Qaeda/Muslim Brotherhood take over Syria. Getting involved in Syria, other than to provide Bashar Assad with weapons to fight Al Qaeda/Muslim Brotherhood has all the positive outcome possibilities of playing Russian Roulette with a fully loaded Colt Model 1911. It is in the truest sense a perfect example of what a Obama grade decision failure is.
