Just in time for the ‘Syrian Peace Conference’ in Montreux, Switzerland this week…
The timing of this incredible “55,000 digital images smuggled out of Syria implicate Assad regime” media report, seemed highly uncanny and even more suspicious when you take a good look at it (see full exposé by Land Destroyer blog below). We can’t say we are surprised though…
William Hague’s reaction sounded more like a film review in Empire magazine:
‘Foreign Secretary said the images are ‘compelling and horrific!’
It gets better. This latest ‘breathtaking’ report of ‘Assad’s systematic torture operation’, hand-delivered by the new Curveball, named ‘Caesar’, was prepared and put on lay-away in order to influence opinions in favour of regime change in Syria. Even if it were true, blowing the international whistle on institutional torture is just a bit rich – coming from the United States and Great Britain. Indeed, after 12 years Guantanamo Bay is still open for business.
But it gets worse – we discover that the ‘report’ was commissioned by the Qataris and authored by Carter Ruck law firm in London, solicitors who just happen to also represent Saudi clients accused of, wait for it… funneling money to al Qaida terrorists. Yes, like those same terrorists who happen to have flooded into Syria over the last two and a half years.
Here’s where the super-spin cycle begins. In order to try and conceal the fact that the Saudis and Qataris have been bank-rolling some of the most savage Jihadi mercenary fighters the world has ever seen in Syria, spin doctors have come up with this latest bit of counter-propaganda:
“Rebels and defectors said the regime also deliberately released militant prisoners to strengthen jihadist ranks at the expense of moderate rebel forces. The aim was to persuade the West that the uprising was sponsored by Islamist militants including al-Qaeda as a way of stopping Western support for it, the intelligence report claims.”
Tidying up loose ends? You might laugh, but this bit of spin is making the rounds in the western media and political circles.
The didn’t get their war back in September – even despite the embarrassing western effort to lie and fabricate WMD chemical weapons ‘evidence’ and other follies over social media. But the Axis of Washington-London-Paris haven’t given up on their primary goal.
VEXED: Assad knew that this latest ‘peace summit’ was just a ruse to nudge western regime change plans down the road.
So we can just as well ignore all the phony talk of humanitarianism, nonviolent democratic protests and “the international community”. For them, it was, is, and always will be about… regime change.
US State Department head janitor and loyal Bonesman, John Kerry, was tasked to do what he has always done best as far back as his BCCI cover-up days – to divert attention away from any of the many US screw-ups over Syria, and of course, to keep the western media on-message. Kerry came right out of the gates this morning with the ambush everyone was expecting, along the lines of:
‘Assad is a brutal murderer and should not be included in the OUR new government in Syria’.

Being a good janitor, Kerry is very careful to deflect away from any mention of his fraudulent ‘intelligence’ 3 months ago, and also all the CIA trafficking of weapons, cash, equipment, mercenary contractors and US special forces training and prepping ‘rebel fighters’ just over the border in Jordan and Turkey (this has been taking place over the last 2 years).
The other bit which Kerry is tasked with covering up is the fact that, aside from NATO-allied al Qaida fighters moving from Libya over to Syria, US agents had organised shipments of arms from Benghazi, Libya to Syria – a clandestine operation which Chris Stevens and others paid the ultimate price for. Kerry his predecessor Hillary Clinton, along with Susan Rice, still play dumb about it all, laughably maintaining that the Benghazi slaughter was all down to that doctored Cointel You Tube sensation entitled, “The Innocence of Muslims”. And they still expect people to take them seriously as politicians and diplomats.
Welcome to that bizarre parallel universe known as, Obama’s Washington…
US Feigns “Horror” Over Cooked-Up Report on Syrian War They Engineered
Qatar – chief financier of Al Qaeda in Syria – commissions “report” on atrocities published just ahead of Geneva conference.
Update: Further details have emerged regarding the authors of the report. It was produced by British law firm Carter-Ruck on behalf of Qatar who funded it (CNN). Carter-Ruck had in the past defended Saudis suspected of funding Al Qaeda.
ABC’s “U.S.: Saudis Still Filling Al Qaeda’s Coffers,” would report that Yasin al Qadi was being represented by Carter-Ruck against US charges filed just after 9/11 claiming he was financing Al Qaeda. It should also be noted that Yasin al Qadi is a close ally of US’ partner in the Syrian conflict, Recep Tayyip Erdogan of Turkey. The suspicious report, conveniently released just a day before the Geneva conference, emerging from a tangled web of state-sponsored terrorism and dubious Western law firms only further taints the West’s image as they go into “peace talks” regarding Syria.
January 22, 2014 (LD) – As with every Western-backed conference assembled regarding Syria, dramtic fabrications revealed just ahead of proceedings are intended to give them and their predetermined outcomes both gravity and “urgency.” Upcoming “peace talks” to be held in Switzerland are no exception. A report cooked up by the unelected dictatorship in Qatar is based on an anonymous source, codename “Caesar,” and remains admittedly unverified.
The BBC’s report, “US and UN express horror at Syria torture report,” claims:
The report, by three former war crimes prosecutors, is based on the evidence of a defected military police photographer, referred to only as Caesar, who along with others reportedly smuggled about 55,000 digital images of some 11,000 dead detainees out of Syria.
The BBC then reveals the propaganda value the report is intended to serve in upcoming talks by stating:
US state department spokeswoman Marie Harf said it “underscores that it makes it even more important that we make progress [at Geneva II]. The situation on the ground is so horrific that we need to get a political transition in place, and we need to get the Assad regime out of power.”
Of course, spokesman for UN Human Rights Chief Navi Pillay would admit the report remains unverified (emphasis added):
Rupert Colville, spokesman for UN human rights chief Navi Pillay, told AFP: “This report is extremely alarming, and the alleged scale of the deaths in detention, if verified, is truly horrifying.
Codename Caesar, Codename Curveball
Image: From Independent’s “Man whose WMD lies led to 100,000 deaths confesses all: Defector tells how US officials ‘sexed up’ his fictions to make the case for 2003 invasion.” In retrospect, the corporate-media has no problem admitting the insidious lies that were told to justify the invasion and occupation of Iraq – the lead up to the war was another story. A verbatim repeat of these admitted lies are being directed at Syria amidst the West’s failure to overthrow the government with terrorist proxies.
Readers must recall another codename, that of Iraqi informant “Curveball” whose lies would lay the rhetorical foundation for the invasion and occupation of Iraq. The UK Independent’s article, “Man whose WMD lies led to 100,000 deaths confesses all,” would recall:
A man whose lies helped to make the case for invading Iraq – starting a nine-year war costing more than 100,000 lives and hundreds of billions of pounds – will come clean in his first British television interview tomorrow.
“Curveball”, the Iraqi defector who fabricated claims about Iraq’s weapons of mass destruction, smiles as he confirms how he made the whole thing up. It was a confidence trick that changed the course of history, with Rafid Ahmed Alwan al-Janabi’s lies used to justify the Iraq war.
And once again, a disingenuous West along with a complicit UN is going into a so-called “Peace Conference” with unverified allegations designed to manipulate public perception on the most visceral levels, circumventing facts, logic, and reason, to bolster their position in a conflict they themselves engineered and are still purposefully perpetrating with the hopes of achieving long-desired “regime change.”
The ongoing conflict in Syria was engineered by the West and its regional allies as far back as 2007, revealed by Pulitzer Prize-winning journalist Seymour Hersh in his article, “The Redirection: Is the Administration’s new policy benefiting our enemies in the war on terrorism?” which prophetically stated (emphasis added):
“To undermine Iran, which is predominantly Shiite, the Bush Administration has decided, in effect, to reconfigure its priorities in the Middle East. In Lebanon, the Administration has coöperated with Saudi Arabia’s government, which is Sunni, in clandestine operations that are intended to weaken Hezbollah, the Shiite organization that is backed by Iran. The U.S. has also taken part in clandestine operations aimed at Iran and its ally Syria. A by-product of these activities has been the bolstering of Sunni extremist groups that espouse a militant vision of Islam and are hostile to America and sympathetic to Al Qaeda.”
It is now admitted that Al Qaeda comprises almost entirely all of the militants fighting the Syrian government, many of whom are foreigners crossing into Syrian territory with NATO’s aid.
