While President Obama has intentions of launching air-strikes in Syria against the Syrian government and army, with or without Congress’s approval, questions are being raised about who Obama is supporting.
On Saturday, Frank Aquila, author of the book, “Sarah Palin Out of Nowhere,” wrote a brief editorial that Obama is putting America on the side of the Muslim Brotherhood and Al-Qaeda in Syria, without regards to the truth, just as he did in Egypt and Libya.
“Obama is pushing for military action against Syria due to the use of Weapons of Mass Destruction (WMD) on the Syrian people, “said Aquila. “How ironic that during the Iraq war, President Bush received congressional approval for war after Saddam Hussein used WMD on the Iraqi people… Democrats and the media blamed Bush after no WMD was found, despite Iraqi General Georges Sada admitting that the WMD was secretly brought to Syria.”
“So the WMD is found in Syria just as Sada had said, making those who said that “Bush lied” looking like fools.”
“On one side, you have President Assad, Hezbollah, and Iran. On the other side is the Muslim Brotherhood who is aligned with Al Qaeda. Both sides are sworn enemies of America… why would Obama want to engage in this conflict? It is because Obama supports the Muslim Brotherhood, “Aquila said.
General Georges Sada was a top official in Saddam Hussein’s Iraqi air force who told the New York based news outlet, The Sun, in 2006, that Iraq moved weapons of mass destruction into Syria before the war by loading the weapons into civilian aircraft in which the passenger seats were removed.
“There are weapons of mass destruction gone out from Iraq to Syria, and they must be found and returned to safe hands,” Mr. Sada said. “I am confident they were taken over.”
In recent days, new reports have surfaced that the Syrian government did not use chemical weapons in the war torn region but that Al-Qaeda backed rebels used the weapons, allegedly now backed by the Saudi government.
In that report, Mint Press News revealed that in a recent article for Business Insider, reporter Geoffrey Ingersoll highlighted the Saudi Prince Bandar’s role in the two-and-a-half year Syrian civil war. He said that many observers believe Bandar, with his close ties to Washington, has been at the very heart of the push for war by the U.S. against Assad.
According to Ingersoll, Bandar is advancing Saudi Arabia’s top foreign policy goal of toppling the Assad and that Bandar also has been working with Washington to back a program to arm and train rebels out of a planned military base in Jordan.
