Renewed journalist, Robert Perry is claiming that the recent chemical weapons attack originated in Saudi Arabia NOT Syria. He says his U.S. intelligence sources have been telling him the attack actually originated from a Saudi Arabian special operations base designed to aid Syrian rebel forces.
Perry suggests that President Trump might have been using the chemical weapons attack in Syria to advance his own administration.
“The suspected reason for the poison gas was to create an incident that would reverse the Trump administration’s announcement in late March that it was no longer seeking the removal of President Bashar al-Assad,”
Furthermore, Perry asserts that he is not alone in sharing this viewpoint.
“The contention that the incident was a “false flag” to create a justification for air strikes has also been voiced by former Congressman Ron Paul as well as numerous other prominent voices, including Vladimir Putin himself, who went on to warn that rebels could now stage a similar incident in Damascus to goad the U.S. into toppling Assad.”
Putin supports Assad's government. Regardless, of the recent chemical weapons attack, Assad's government has undisputable committed numerous crimes against its citizens and humanity. It would stand to reason than that Putin would show international support for Syria despite receiving new intelligence that Syria had committed another war crime. In this particular context, it seems more likely than not, that one or two journalist agreeing with Putin and Assad is more reflective of a few outlying puppets than a credible attack on the Trump administration.
