Former US Official: Israel Used Chemical Weapons in Syria to Implicate Assad
Local Editor

A former senior official in the Bush administration said that the Zionist entity may have used chemical weapons in Syria in a bid to implicate the President Bashar al-Assad.Retired Col. Lawrence Wilkerson

Retired Col. Lawrence Wilkerson, Colin Powell's former chief of staff, said that the use of chemical weapons in Syria might have been a "false flag operation" of Israel, meant to implicate President Assad.

"We don’t know what the chain of custody is. This could’ve been an Israeli false flag operation, it could’ve been an opposition in Syria... or it could’ve been an actual use by Bashar Assad. But we certainly don’t know with the evidence we’ve been given. And what I’m hearing from the intelligence community is that that evidence is really flakey,” Wilkerson told Cenk Uygur in an interview with Current TV.

Given this "flimsy evidence," Wilkerson doesn't believe a red line has been crossed in Syria, and that the US should not base its intervention in the crisis-hit country based on such evidence.

Wilkerson criticized Israeli Prime Minister Binyamin Netanyahu harshly, saying there is a "geostratigically, geopolitical inept regime in Tel Aviv right now."

"We saw really startling evidence of that in the fact that [US] President [Barack] Obama had to tell Bibi Netanyahu, 'pick up the phone, you idiot, and call Ankara and get yourself out of this strategic isolation you're in right now, do a reconciliation with Turkey, the most powerful country in the region,' otherwise Bibi probably wouldn't have done it," he said.

He also said Netanyahu was "clueless" as to the grave security situation Israel is in.
