Chemical Attack in Syria: Leaks might confirm a staged attack.
The turmoil and situation in and around Syria are still very tense and every side involved in the Syrian conflict is blaming each other for incidents and attacks in the Arab country. However, the most important questions are currently such questions as who was really behind the recent chemical attacks in suburbs of the Syrian capital Damascus and whether the U.S. administration of President Obama will launch an US-led military strike on Syria or not.
While several Western intelligence information suggests that the Syrian government and the Syrian Army were behind the chemical attacks in suburbs of Damascus, the Russian administration has called the presented evidence “not convincing” and urged Washington to share detailed information and even more evidence with them.
Further, Russia’s President Putin has called the US accusations by e.g. US Secretary of State John Kerry against the Syrian government and President Bashar al-Assad in terms of the alleged use of chemical weapons against Syrian civilians an “utter nonsense“. In addition, Vladimir Putin also said that he wants to see real evidence and not just rumours because it`s a very serious topic and there has to be convincing evidence for such claims.
So or so – the issues around the alleged chemical attack in Syria have taken a new direction now. On the one hand, there are some new videos on YouTube and Facebook and these videos seem to confirm that terrorists of the so-called “Free Syrian Army” (FSA) have used chemical agents (e.g. Sarin nerve gas?) in an attack on a Syrian village.
On the other hand, there is the leak of an US intelligence correspondence and some private emails of Col. Anthony J. Macdonald. Col. Anthony J. Macdonald is the General Staff Director, Operations and Plans Office of the Deputy Chief of Staff for Intelligence the US Army Staff, and thus, the private emails of Anthony J. MacDonald are not only very interesting but also very important.
The new evidence seem to confirm that the U.S. military intelligence was involved in the recent chemical attack in suburbs of the Syrian capital, Damascus (August 21).
According to the report, a hacker has managed it to get access to the U.S. intelligence correspondence as well as to private emails of the General Staff Director, Operations and Plans Office of the Deputy Chief of Staff for Intelligence the US Army Staff, Col. Anthony J. MacDonald. The leak was published and it seems that Houston the US military intelligence has a problem now.
For example, in an email conversation on August 22, 2013 about the chemical attack in Syria between Col. Anthony J. MacDonald and US Army civilian analyst Eugene P. Furst, a successful operation was mentioned and it was referred to a publication by the Washington Post about the chemical attack on August 21 in suburbs of Damascus.
US Army civilian analyst Eugene P. Furst wrote to Col. Anthony J. MacDonald on August 22 that he saw his latest success, afterwards he congratulated the General Staff Director, Operations and Plans Office of the Deputy Chief of Staff for Intelligence the US Army Staff for the successful operation. Col. Anthony J. MacDonald answered that he is far “from this now” but that he knows that “our guys did their best” – in this operation in Damascus? False-Flag?
Further published emails between Jennifer MacDonald, the wife of Col. Anthony J. MacDonald, and Mary Shapiro seem to confirm that the high-ranking member of the US military intelligence did not keep his mouth shut at home.
Mary Shapiro wrote to the wife of Col. Anthony J. MacDonald that she can’t stop thinking about the terrible gas attack in Syria now and asked if Jennifer MacDonald has seen those (dead) kids in the videos.
The wife of the General Staff Director, Operations and Plans Office of the Deputy Chief of Staff for Intelligence the US Army Staff for the successful operation. Col. Anthony J. MacDonald, answered to the questions by Mary Shapiro that she also saw the videos but her husband comforted her because Col. Anthony J. MacDonald told her that the “kids weren’t hurt” and “it was done for the cameras” so his wife Jennifer has not to worry.
