Did anyone see the news?
Seymour Hersh published “Hillary Approved Sending Libya’s Sarin to Syrian Rebels”
Did anyone else look at that article and say – “Yeah, big deal.”
Don’t get me wrong, this is important news to break out into the general population, but most of us who track this stuff aren’t surprised. We are hardened to such low level surprises.
We are continually surprised to see how few of these war crimes actually get published.
We are continually surprised to see that the biggest war crimes never get any serious air time in the mainstream. For example, the use of DU, the many lies deliberately fabricated to make the case for war, the millions of innocent dead and counting every day, the trillions of dollars “lost” by the US Pentagram, the trillions of dollars stolen in oil and military contracts by those connected to the ones who made the original fabricated reasons to go to war, and many thousands of specific war crime events that have gone unreported or under-reported.
We are surprised to see that these war criminals get bolder and more criminal and more numerous in the halls of power while at the same time, society has become more accustomed, more acclimated, more tolerant of these increasingly numerous and obvious war crime events.
There has been much talk about having a red line against supposed crimes of supposed dictators that have never even been accused of doing half a percent of what is admittedly being done by the US military. So where is our “red line”? Society and humanity seems to be in a coma. We are surprised by those things. Where is the universal application of right and wrong? The greatest numbers of civilians getting killed are being killed by the greatest beneficiaries of these wars. Why do we fail to stop powerful people for the worst crimes on the planet? This is something humans are going to have to figure out and correct or face possible extinction at the hands of these psychopaths who apparently can do no wrong.

“Seymour Hersh: Hillary Approved Sending Libya’s Sarin to Syrian Rebels
“Pulitzer prize winning journalist, Serymour Hersh, said “Our policy has always been against him [Assad]. Period”. This has actually been the case not only since the Party that Assad leads, the Ba’ath Party, was the subject of a shelved CIA coup-plot in 1957 to overthrow and replace it; but, actually, the CIA’s first coup had been not just planned but was carried out in 1949 in Syria, overthrowing there a democratically elected leader, in order to enable a pipeline for the Sauds’ oil to become built through Syria into the largest oil market, Europe; and, construction of the pipeline started the following year.
“OPINION — In an interview with Alternet.org, the independent investigative reporter Seymour Hersh was asked about Hillary Clinton’s role in the Benghazi Libya consulate’s operation to collect sarin from Libyan stockpiles and send it through Turkey into Syria for a set-up sarin-gas attack, to be blamed on Assad in order to ‘justify’ the US invading Syria, as it had invaded Libya.
“He said: «That ambassador who was killed, he was known as a guy, from what I understand, as somebody, who would not get in the way of the CIA. As I wrote, on the day of the mission he was meeting with the CIA base chief and the shipping company. He was certainly involved, aware and witting of everything that was going on. And there’s no way somebody in that sensitive of a position is not talking to the boss, by some channel».
“This was, in fact, the Syrian part of the State Department’s Libyan operation, Obama’s operation to set up an excuse for the US doing in Syria what they had already done in Libya…”
