BEIRUT, LEBANON (5:20 P.M.) – The source for the Trump administration’s allegation that the Syrian government is planning to use chemical weapons in Syria is a rebel group, Secretary of Defense James Mattis said on Friday.

According to Mattis, the U.S. has reports from a rebel group that the Syrian government has ‘renewed’ attacks with chemical weapons.

Mattis added that the U.S. wants to corroborate the reports that the Syrian government used Sarin, adding that they don’t have proof yet.

The rebel group making these allegations was not named.

All of the US’s and it’s cronies’ wars and ‘interventions’ are based on bald-faced lies. MSM that don’t expose these obvious lies are aiding and abetting War Crimes.

Since when has an army that is winning a war and doing just fine with the weapons they have and are advancing on fronts have to use chemicals weapons???? There is absolutely no need for the SAA to use them at all it is completely illogical.

Even the most dumb of the US Military privates would not consider the US sources of UN designated Terror Groups as credible, but the US Military perverts with Brass Hats do .

I look forward to reading the long awaited FBI Memo today as Trump has promised 🙂

How does one deal with such a universally deranged population as we see in the USA today ? It is akin to having order in a lunatic asylum.

it’s not the population, although they are incredibly stupid re foreign affairs. No, it’s a small group of elites who have completely taken over the west.

The US own mercenaries throw arguments that their masters want to use. What proof is this? The Anglos are playing this game game since WW I and before. Do they believe their own propaganda?

The headline is backwards. Rebels get their chemical weapons from the U.S.
