Col. Pat Lang Urges President To Stop Listening to British and MI6 Lies about Syria

April 8, 2018 (EIRNS)—U.S. military intelligence veteran Col. Pat Lang (ret.) named the British and their media-minions today as the perpetrators of the attempt to gin up another U.S. attack on Syrian President Bashar Assad. This one is based, Lang writes, on yet another British hoax—that Assad used chemical weapons in the Douma district of Eastern Ghouta, where the Syrian army has already nearly won the battle.

President Trump attacked “Animal Assad,” in a tweet this morning, indicating that the President had bought into another British hoax. The militants’ defense has collapsed, Colonel Lang reports, to the degree that they lack even a theoretical chance to win the battle for Douma against government forces.

Colonel Lang cites President Trump’s tweet about “Animal Assad,” writing,

“Our beloved president has once again been watching a bit too much TV news. Does it ever occur to him to pick up the secure phone and call the watch officer at CIA, NSA, or wherever, and ask if they think the news reports are correct? All of these information feeds to the MSM (mainstream media) and thence to [the President’s] DJT’s ears are news feeds from the propaganda apparatus of the rebels, much of it supported financially by the British government’s foreign ministry, and delivered through MI6. What on Earth motivates the U.K. in this devilment? And then, of course, there is the extreme group-think on the part of the U.S. and European MSM in parroting these objectively unproven claims.”

Lang then examines how Pinocchio’s nose grew, with first reports from rebel group Jaish al-Islam media stating only 15 people were affected by the attack. By April 8, Lang writes, “the story had reached the MSM and the death toll had grown to ‘at least 70.’ ” He continues, “The notorious al-Qaeda-linked propaganda organization White Helmets, as always, played a key role in spreading the story,” stating that the

“White Helmets closely cooperated with the Syrian al-Qaeda branch—Jaish al-Islam, and continued to cooperate with the group after it was re-branded to Jabhat Fatah al-Sham and then Hayat Tahrir al-Sham.”

Lang titled his piece: “Animal Assad Strikes Again!—This Time To Celebrate Victory?”
