Classic Pentagon Cockup: US Confirms ISIS Both Is and Is NOT using Mustard Gas

The photograph above comes from the Syrian Human Rights Observatory, supposedly proving Syria is using poison gas.  The photo actually came from al Nusra, the al Qaeda group that supplied it “sight unseen” and totally unverified to the CIA’s London affiliate, financed by black budget “reptile funds” from Radio Liberty.  Radio Liberty and Radio Free Europe cash was used by the CIA to bribe and blackmail around the world to support “free market capitalism” against the evils of communism.

Now the same black cash buys photos of imaginary Russian tank columns invading Ukraine and, of course, phony poison gas photos.  Now the Pentagon itself has added a new paradigm to screwing up, competing with the CIA’s “toad and troll” brigade.

The Pentagon is caught again, working hand in hand with the CIA’s Syrian Human Rights Observatory, trying to deny the use of chemical weapons supplied to terrorists by Turkey, Israel and Georgia.

In 2012, the CIA and Pentagon tried to push President Obama into setting up a no-fly-zone over Syria and initiating a bombing campaign based on baseless tales of Syrian sarin gas, chlorine gas “barrel bombs” and other horrors.

Now, within 72 hours, the Pentagon has both proven and denied ISIS use of poison gas.  The Pentagon denial as reported or rather misreported by Reuters was more than hasty, it has turned out to be downright humiliating.
