Aleppo : Victory Tribute

capturechahba

A side you will never see from the pro-AlQaeda mainstream media. They want to tell you that Aleppo has « fallen ». Aleppo doesn’t fall, she rises like a pheonix! A victory as historical as stalingrad. This is thanks to all those who supported us and to the heros who resisted.

Selon le ministère russe de la Défense, l’attaque de l’hôpital militaire à Alep a été perpétrée par des combattants de l’opposition.

Une femme médecin militaire russe a été tuée et deux autres blessés dans une attaque contre un hôpital militaire à Alep, rapporte le porte-parole du ministère de la Défense Igor Konachenkov. Selon Igor Konachenkov, la responsabilité de l’attaque contre l’hôpital militaire par les combattants de l’opposition incombe à leurs sponsors américains, anglais et français.

« La femme médecin grièvement blessée lors des tirs d’artillerie de l’opposition qui visaient l’hôpital du ministère russe de la Défense à Alep, a succombé à ses blessures », indiqué M.Konachenkov. Selon lui, les médecins avaient tout fait pour sauver la vie à la femme, mais ses blessures étaient trop graves. Cela porte à deux le nombre des victimes de l’attaque contre l’hôpital mobile russe effectuée par l’opposition syrienne à Alep. L’autre médecin russe grièvement blessé pendant le bombardement est toujours aux soins intensifs.

[Vidéo] Pierre Le Corf sur Alep-Est: beaucoup de médias vont se retrouver «en panne d’arguments»

Ce que Le Monde, Libération, la télévision suisse romande (RTS), radio France Culture, n’ont pas dit au public jusqu’ici, censuré…

A aucun moment leurs journalistes n’ont permis au public de comprendre que « l’armée de Bachar » – c’est par son prénom qu’ils parlent du président Assad – est entrée dans les quartiers d’Alep-Est, occupés par les terroristes, libérant la population qu’ils avaient prise en otage depuis 2012. Les journalistes de cette presse qui faut-il le rappeler, a menti depuis mars 2011 au sujet des tenants et aboutissants de cette guerre atroce, n’ont à aucun moment parlé de  » la libération Alep », de la « joie des habitants » qui ont pu fuir la terreur des prétendus « opposants », leur échapper, fuir du côté gouvernemental…[Silvia Cattori]

Sputniknews| 29.11.2016

Enfin, une partie d’Alep-Est a été complètement libérée des djihadistes! Selon Pierre Le Corf, fondateur de l’ONG WeAreSuperheroes, contacté par Sputnik, les médias mainstream se retrouveront bientôt «en panne d’arguments» face à cette nouvelle. Découvrez le témoignage de M. Le Corf dans la vidéo ci-dessous.

Après de longs mois sous le contrôle des djihadistes, une zone peuplée de plus de 90 000 habitants s’est vue complètement libérée à Alep-Est. Pierre Le Corf, fondateur de l’ONG humanitaire WeAreSuperheroes créée pour aider les civils en proie à la guerre, est le seul Français vivant à Alep-Ouest depuis des mois, le seul à observer la guerre dans toute son horreur. D’après lui, la libération de ces quartiers atteste du fait que la guerre est en train de s’accélérer, mais la paix également : « Une très grande partie d’Alep-Est a été libérée, ce qui signifie que la guerre est en train de s’accélérer et la paix également, beaucoup de gens ont pu s’enfuir, et ont où se réfugier ici et n’ont pas à être déplacés. Ces gens ont bravé les combats, les balles, les zones minées, pour venir jusque-là », raconte-t-il.

Pierre Le Corf sur la libération d’une partie d’Alep-Est : “Une vraie bonne nouvelle !”

Ce qui compte pour lui particulièrement, ce sont les humains et les gens qui sont vraiment heureux de pouvoir s’échapper de la partie est.

« Ils ont commencé à témoigner déjà de ce qui se passait là-bas. Ils ont commencé à témoigner de la situation à l’est : le rationnement, les tortures, l’emprisonnement. Je suis vraiment heureux de voir que la situation aujourd’hui se démêle du fait que l’armée aujourd’hui permette vraiment cette avancée des choses d’un point de vue humanitaire. Évidemment, il y a des pertes humaines, c’est une réalité, c’est une guerre. Mais beaucoup de gens ont été sauvés ces derniers jours », ajoute-t-il.

  1. Le Corf a rencontré entre 50 et 60 familles qui ont vécu à l’est ces derniers mois. Ces gens sont parvenus à s’en échapper et ont pu lui raconter leurs histoires, partager à quel point la vie à l’est était difficile sous le contrôle des terroristes. Et les personnes qu’il a rencontrées dernièrement ont partagé avec lui leur immense bonheur.

« Les gens que j’ai découverts ces derniers jours — j’ai pas pu voir autant de familles que j’aurais voulu voir, jusqu’à maintenant — mais j’ai vu des gens extrêmement heureux, apaisés, des familles entières qui étaient émues aux larmes ».

Aujourd’hui, il n’y a pas de partie combattante à venir apporter une quelconque démocratie et les gens fuient l’est, les gens de l’ouest subissent la mort par les combattants de l’est, poursuit M. Le Corf. Alors, il y a un moment où les médias, les gouvernements et toutes les personnes qui ont été partisans de ce conflit ne vont plus pouvoir soutenir ce conflit trop longtemps.

« Parce que ce sont des milliers et des milliers de réfugiés qui sont arrivés de ce côté-là et, croyez-moi, ils ont beaucoup à raconter », explique-t-il. « Petit à petit énormément de gens se rendent compte que finalement tout ce qu’ils ont lu pendant des années n’était pas tant la réalité, mais une communication bien construite. »

Entre-temps, les médias se trouveront prochainement à court d’arguments puisque les habitants se dresseront contre eux.

« Beaucoup de médias vont continuer à s’accrocher à leur business model, c’est-à-dire que le business model aujourd’hui c’est les avions qui viennent bombarder les civils sans aucune raison. Mais il y aura un moment où ils vont se retrouver en panne d’arguments parce que les gens qui vivent ici — la situation va se retourner contre eux », résume l’interlocuteur de Sputnik.

Updated-Al-Jaafari: Trafficking in the Syrian blood by representatives of “al-Golani” and ISIS will not affect Syria to practice its legal duty in combating terrorism

capturedr-jaafari

New York, SANA-Syria’ Permanent Representative to the UN Bashar al-Jaafari said on Wednesday that the continued trafficking in the Syrian blood by representatives of “al-Golani” and ISIS, through the humanitarian file, will not affect Syria, with the support of its allies, to practice its legal duty in combating terrorism and saving the lives of its people in line with principles of the international law and the relevant UNSC resolutions on counterterrorism.

Al-Jaafari added in a speech at UNSC session on the state in the Middle East that liberating more than 80 thousand of children and women in Aleppo was not part of the British and French foreign ministries’ plans or the US Department of State’s which all allege they defend civilians in Aleppo.

He noted that these states’ calls to impose sanctions on Syria and Russia after the liberation of this number of civilians set another evidence on the exploitation of these Syrians by those who sponsor terrorism to protect terrorists and practice the cheap political blackmail.

Al-Jaafari  indicated that that once again, representatives of Jabhat al-Nusra terrorist organization and other groups affiliated to them, call for holding an urgent UNSC session in an attempt to offer political and moral support to these groups following the great achievements of the Syrian army and its allies.

Syria’s permanent representative referred to the dozens of civilians who tried to flee from the eastern parts of Aleppo city to the safe areas in the western neighborhoods and were killed at the hands of “moderate opposition” terrorists who are backed by the US, Britain and France.

Al-Jaafari read quotes from Syria children’s letter to UNICEF resident representative in Syria in protest of terrorist organizations’ attacks with rocket shells on Aleppo schools, “ We want to go to our schools without fear of car bombs.. We want to play without fear of mortar shells or explosive devices.. We want to live in peace, security and joy.. The blood of our friends who were martyred in different Syrian cities will not have been in vain, rather they will be a beacon for close victory on terrorism.

It seems that the UNICEF representative did not hear about this letter and Jabhat al-Nusra representatives inside and outside the UN Security Council did not listen to the tens of thousands of liberated civilians’ suffering stories and terrifying testimonies about the practices of Jabhat al-Nusra and affiliated terrorist groups in Aleppo over the past few years starting from selling humanitarian aid and bread to them, recruiting children, taking women captive and using them as human shields, Al-Jaafari added, noting that these are real stories and have nothing to do with stories from the Thousand and One Nights told by some states in this council.

Addressing the US permanent representative, Al-Jaafari said that ISIS, Jabat al-Nusra and other terrorist groups who have taken women captive, set a price list to sell them at the slave market according to their age.

The UN special envoy for Syria, Staffan de Mistura, and Stephen O’Brien, USG for Humanitarian Affairs at the UNSC did not use the word “terrorists” and used the expression “Non-state armed groups” when they talked about preventing civilians from leaving Aleppo eastern neighborhoods , stressing that this shows clearly that these terrorist groups take civilians as human shields, noted Al-Jaafari.

He referred to the absurdity of some parties in the UNSC through their misleading statements which go in line with the stances of their governments and their destructive schemes, noting that it will not delude the reality that the people of some eastern neighborhoods in Aleppo restored hope in life after they were liberated by the Syrian army and its allies who provided them with food, safe residence and good living conditions after four years of suffering and pain.

Al-Jaafari said that the “absurd theater” and its heroes of Jabhat al-Nusra representatives inside the UNSC failed to distort the military achievement in liberating the civilians of Aleppo from terrorists, not to mention their failure in defaming the image of the relief and humanitarian performance of the Syrian government, in cooperation with its allies and friends, in order to provide them with their basic needs.

Al-Jaafari said that “In this regard, the Syrian government submitted a request to the office of the UN Resident Representative in Damascus asking for taking part in relief efforts exerted by the government in order to alleviate the suffering of tens of thousands of Aleppo people, in addition to informing the UN resident representative in Aleppo to use the reserves at the UN warehouses in the city to meet the citizens’ basic needs,” noting that the UN resident representative will go to Aleppo on Thursday as the Syrian authorities approved it.

He hailed Russia’s efforts and support to Syria in its war on terrorism which extended to include the relief and humanitarian work, the latest of which is the Russian President Vladimir Putin’s order to the Ministries of Defense and Emergency Situations to send mobile hospitals to provide medical assistance to residents of Aleppo and residential areas near it, noting that these field  hospitals are real and not studios to fabricate heroic deeds such as of the so-called “White Helmets” terrorists founded by the British security consultant James Le Mesurier .

It is time that this “absurd theater” stop its practices which caused the unprecedented spread of  terrorism and terrified the international public opinion as it extended to almost all parts of the world, said Al-Jaafari, pointing out that these states have to realize that they cannot use terrorism to turn Aleppo in another Kandahar.

He slammed the stances of some countries that abandoned their responsibilities towards the implementation of  the UN Security Council’s relevant resolutions, particularly No. 2253, turning a blind eye to behaviors of some countries represented by extending unlimited financial and media support to the terrorists.

He criticized the Qatari Foreign Minister’s statements last Monday on his Sheikhdom’s  continued support to the terrorists and arming them in Syria even if the upcoming American administration stopped this support.

He lashed out at the destructive role of Israel through supporting the terrorist organizations at the disengagement area in the occupied Syrian Golan and in the surroundings of Daraa city, mainly Jabhat al-Nusra terrorist organization.

The late Israeli aggression on al-Sabourah area in the western countryside of Damascus is “a desperate attempt” by Israel to raise the collapsed morals of Takfiri terrorist organizations upon which heavy losses were inflicted in many areas, particularly in the western countryside of Damascus.

Al-Jaafari reiterated the call upon the Council’s member states who sympathize with the “genetically modified moderate terrorists” to bring back their brutal garbage which they have exported to Syria over the past five years and to take care of them if they want through establishing self-governing zones for them in their own cities in Europe, the US and other areas.

He reiterated the Syrian Government’s adherence to its policies which are built on balancing between the priority of combating terrorism as the main threat to security and stability in Syria, and seeking to find a political solution to the crisis based on the Syrian-Syrian dialogue under a Syrian leadership and without any foreign interference or any preconditions.

He indicated that the Syrian Government is still waiting the invitation of the UN Special Envoy to Syria to resume the Syrian dialogue which stopped since May 2016.

Al-Jaafari added that those who are invited today to the Security Council to estimate what is taking place in Aleppo have been hosted by each of London, Geneva and Amman while there has been no representative or deputy of the UN from Syria, indicating that this is a very dangerous gab as the UN representatives working in Damascus have been excluded from proposing their briefings to the Council.

UNCLOAKED: White Helmets Rescue Crisis Actor in ‘Mannequin Challenge’ Fakery

capture1

 

Just when you thought they were slowing down following their failure to win a Nobel Peace Prize in October, the US-UK backed ‘NGO’ dubbed the White Helmets, continue to produce an unprecedented amount of western-oriented war propaganda.

CNN’s latest White Helmet-supplied report seems to be more of the same – the appearance of staged rescue scenes, designed to discredit both the Syrian Government and the Russian governments for daring to try and flush out any US Coaltion-backed foreign Salafist insurgency, hell bent (literally) on ‘regime change’ in Syria.

Watch CNN ‘journalist,’ Will Ripley, conducting what’s meant to look like a ‘hard-hitting’ report, not from Syria though, but from his laptop in a quaint hotel somewhere in cosmopolitan Istanbul. His report features video footage which is heavily edited to look like real ‘search and rescue’ events in Aleppo, and which is supplied to CNN by US-UK and EU-funded pseudo ‘NGO’ organizations in Syria, Aleppo Media Centre and the White Helmets.

The “theatre” that is mainstream media reporting in Syria continues…

 

capture1

Since their inception in late 2013, the White Helmets have been financed to the tune of over $100 million from the UK, US and EU nations alone, along with millions more from various other NATO and GCC member states like Qatar – all nations who are deeply invested in arming and backing rebel-terrorists vying for regime change in Syria.

capture2

capturefack

The video in the Tweet above (see also video below) appears to be another White Helmets staged rescue operation, complete with a “crisis actor,” in what some have dubbed a poor attempt at the “Mannequin Challenge” type of video. The #TheMannequinChallenge social engineering phenomena first went viral in late October featuring, students from a Jacksonville high school, who were “pretending to be stuck motionless, mid-pose, as if they were modeling slacks at Macy’s.”

This latest desperate ‘ice bucket challenge’ farce seems to have backfired badly on the White Helmets – now everyone is asking what 21stCenturyWire.com has been asking for over a year now – how many staged, faked rescue videos and photos has this pseudo NGO produced since its inception in late 2013…?

During the course of 2016, the group appeared to be caught reusing alleged victims as character subjects in its numerous staged rescue photo opportunities.

The White Helmets have been cranking out iconic war images and rescue videos at an unprecedented rate, leading many to question what this group is really doing, and why. Independent critics and analysts such as the website Moon of Alabama have noted that much of the White Helmets imagery is riddled with deceptive anomalies. Here’s one such passage from a Moon report last June, 2016 which revealed the staged nature present in so many of the White Helmets alleged ‘rescue’ operations:

“Isn’t it an amazing fortune that so many kids get rescued ALIVE by the “White Helmets”, without any serious wounds visible, just moments after bomb impacts? This week after week? With all the same attributes in each picture? No photo editor at any of the big media ever wondered about that?

 

Some of these photos may show real scenes. But most are definitely staged. These staged photos are part of the war propaganda against the Syrian people and their government.

 

The “White Helmets” take and distribute these photos. They also distribute lots of “kids rescued from rubble” videos.”

 

Below is a infographic from Hands Off Syria, who also contend the White Helmets have repurposed apparent victims.

Watch and listen to the video clip below, as a fake rescue scene is brought to life by the so-called ‘first responder’ group the White Helmets…

Below is another look at an RT interview featuring 21WIRE contributor Vanessa Beeley this past October. Watch as Beeley dissects the controversy over the White Helmets nomination for the Nobel Peace Prize this year.

The White Helmets were nominated for the ‘Peace Prize’ but perhaps due to public scrutiny over many of the NGO’s false claims and staged imagery, the award was given to Colombian President Juan Manuel Santos last month:

Nusra On The Run – Trump Induces First Major Policy Change On Syria

 

capturen1

November 11, 2016

The people loyal to the Syrian government are happy with Donald Trump winning the U.S. election:

At the passport counter, a Syrian officer’s face lit up when he saw an American traveler.

“Congratulations on your new president!” he exclaimed, giving an energetic thumbs up. Mr. Trump, he said, would be “good for Syria.”

The first significant step of the new administration comes while Trump is not even in offices. Obama, selfishly concerned with his historic legacy, suddenly makes a 180 degree turn and starts to implement Trump polices. Lets consider the initial position:

Asked about Aleppo in an October debate with Clinton, Trump said it was a humanitarian disaster but the city had « basically » fallen. Clinton, he said, was talking in favor of rebels without knowing who they were.

The rebels fighting Assad in western Syria include nationalists fighting under the Free Syrian Army banner, some of them trained in a CIA-backed program, and jihadists such as the group formerly known as the al Qaeda-linked Nusra Front.

The Obama administration, through the CIA led by Saudi asset John Brennan, fed weapons, training and billions of dollars to « moderate rebels ». These then turned around (vid) and either gave the CIA gifts to al-Qaeda in Syria (aka Jabhat al Nusra) or joined it themselves. The scheme was no secret at all and Russia as well as Syria pointed this out several times. The Russian foreign Minister Lavrov negotiated with the U.S. Secretary of State Kerry who promised to separate the « moderate rebels » from al-Qaeda. But Kerry never delivered. Instead he falsely accuse Russia of committing atrocities that never happened. The CIA kept the upper hand within the Obama administration and continued its nefarious plans.

That changed the day the president-elect Trump set foot into the White House. While Obama met Trump in the oval office, new policies, prepared beforehand, were launched. The policies were held back until after the election and would likely not have been revealed or implemented if Clinton had won.

The U.S. declared that from now on it will fight against al-Qaeda in Syria:

President Obama has ordered the Pentagon to find and kill the leaders of an al-Qaeda-linked group in Syria that the administration had largely ignored until now and that has been at the vanguard of the fight against the Syrian government, U.S. officials said.

That shift is likely to accelerate once President-elect Donald Trump takes office. … possibly in direct cooperation with Moscow.

U.S. officials who opposed the decision to go after al-Nusra’s wider leadership warned that the United States would effectively be doing the Assad government’s bidding by weakening a group on the front line of the counter-Assad fight.

Defense Secretary Ashton B. Carter and other Pentagon leaders initially resisted the idea of devoting more Pentagon surveillance aircraft and armed drones against al-Nusra.

capturen1

al-Qaeda hears of Clinton’s defeat,  haz a sad (illustrative pic)

Ash Carter is, together with John Brennan, the major anti-Russian force in the Obama administration. He is a U.S. weapon industry promoter and the anti-Russia campaign, which helps to sell U.S. weapons to NATO allies in Europe, is largely of his doing. He saw al-Qaeda in Syria as a welcome proxy force against Russia.

But Obama has now shut down that policy. We are not yet sure that this is for good but the above Washington Post account is not the only signal:

The U.S. Department of the Treasury’s Office of Foreign Assets Control (OFAC) took action today to disrupt al-Nusrah Front’s military, recruitment, and financing operations. Specifically, OFAC designated four key al-Nusrah Front leaders – Abdallah Muhammad Bin-Sulayman al-Muhaysini, Jamal Husayn Zayniyah, Abdul Jashari, and Ashraf Ahmad Fari al-Allak – pursuant to Executive Order (E.O.) 13224, which targets terrorists and those providing support to terrorists or acts of terrorism.

These designations were taken in coordination with the U.S. Department of State, which today named Jabhat Fath al Sham as an alias of al-Nusrah Front – al-Qa’ida’s affiliate in Syria.

Abdallah Muhammad Bin-Sulayman al-Muhaysini was designated for acting for or on behalf of, and providing support and services to or in support of, al-Nusrah Front.

This is a major change in U.S. policy. Nusra will from now on be on the run not only from Russian and Syrian attacks but also from the intelligence and military capabilities of the United States.

The newly designated Al-Muhaysini, a Saudi cleric, is Nusra’s chief ideologue in Syria. Some considered him the new Osama Bin-Laden. Here he is, on the left, arm in arm with chief al-Qaeda in Syria propagandist and « journalist » Hadi Abdullah.

capturebig2

Hadi Abdullah, friend of the designated al-Qaeda terrorist Muhaysini, just received the 2016 Press Freedom Price from the CIA/Soros financed « regime change » influence operation Reporters Without Borders. Might this mean that Hadi Abdullah is himself a CIA assets? He would not be the first such « journalist » in Syria.

Obama, obviously as a direct consequence of the Trump election, now ordered the Pentagon to wage war on al-Qaeda in Syria just as the Russians do. This after five years of nearly unlimited U.S. support for al-Qaeda and its « moderate » Syrian affiliates. It is not yet know what new orders, if any, Obama gave to the CIA. Will the CIA follow these policies or will it (again) try to counter the Pentagon policies in Syria? It is unusual that the WaPo report above about this new direction includes no commenting voice from the CIA. Why is such missing?

Russia and Syria will welcome the new Obama policies should they come to fruit on the ground. Hillary Clinton had planned and announced to widen the conflict in Syria and with Russia and Iran. Obama would surely not have acted against such policies if she had been elected. But with Trump winning and thereby a new policy on the horizon he now changed course to a direction that will provide « continuity » when Trump takes over.

Not only is Trump kicking a black family out of its longtime limewashed home, he also ends U.S. government support for the disenfranchised Jihadis in Syria and elsewhere. This even months before taking office. He really is the menace we have all been warned about.

capturebig3

UPDATE:

This interview in today’s WSJ confirms that Trump is still in the pro-Syrian/anti-Jihadist camp that is opposed to Obama’s original policy:

Donald Trump, in Exclusive Interview, Tells WSJ He Is Willing to Keep Parts of Obama Health Law

He said he got a “beautiful” letter from Russian President Vladimir Putin, adding that a phone call between them is scheduled shortly.

Although he wasn’t specific, Mr. Trump suggested a shift away from what he said was the current Obama administration policy of attempting to find moderate Syrian opposition groups to support in the civil war there. “I’ve had an opposite view of many people regarding Syria,” he said.

He suggested a sharper focus on fighting Islamic State, or ISIS, in Syria, rather than on ousting Syrian President Bashar al-Assad. “My attitude was you’re fighting Syria, Syria is fighting ISIS, and you have to get rid of ISIS. Russia is now totally aligned with Syria, and now you have Iran, which is becoming powerful, because of us, is aligned with Syria. … Now we’re backing rebels against Syria, and we have no idea who these people are.”

If the U.S. attacks Mr. Assad, Mr. Trump said, “we end up fighting Russia, fighting Syria.”

Obama directs Pentagon to target al-Qaeda affiliate in Syria, one of the most formidable forces fighting Assad

capture-the-washington-post

President Obama has ordered the Pentagon to find and kill the leaders of an al-Qaeda-linked group in Syria that the administration had largely ignored until now and that has been at the vanguard of the fight against the Syrian government, U.S. officials said.

The decision to deploy more drones and intelligence assets against the militant group formerly known as Jabhat al-Nusra reflects Obama’s concern that it is turning parts of Syria into a new base of operations for al-Qaeda on Europe’s southern doorstep, the officials said.

The move underlines the extent to which Obama has come to prioritize the counter­terrorism mission in Syria over efforts to pressure President Bashar al-Assad to step aside, as al-Nusra is among the most effective forces­­ battling the Syrian government.

That shift is likely to accelerate once President-elect Donald Trump takes office. Trump has said he will be even more aggressive in going after militants than Obama, a stance that could lead to the expansion of the campaign against al-Nusra, possibly in direct cooperation with Moscow. The group now calls itself Jabhat Fatah al-Sham — or Front for the Conquest of Syria — and says it has broken with al-Qaeda, an assertion discounted by U.S. officials.

The United States has conducted sporadic strikes in the past against veteran al-Qaeda members who migrated to northwestern Syria from Afghanistan and Pakistan to join al-Nusra and whom U.S. officials suspected of plotting against the United States and its allies.

Obama’s new order gives the U.S. military’s Joint Special ­Operations Command, or JSOC, wider authority and additional intelligence-collection re­sources to go after al-Nusra’s broader leadership, not just al-Qaeda veterans or those directly involved in external plotting.

The White House and State Department led the charge within the Obama administration for prioritizing action against the group. Pentagon leaders were reluctant at first to pull resources away from the fight against the Islamic State.

But aides say Obama grew frustrated that more wasn’t being done by the Pentagon and the intelligence community to kill al-Nusra leaders given the warnings he had received from top counter­terrorism officials about the gathering threat they posed.

In the president’s Daily Brief, the most highly classified intelligence report produced by U.S. spy agencies, Obama was repeatedly told over the summer that the group was allowing al-Qaeda leaders in Pakistan and Afghanistan to create in northwest Syria the largest haven for the network since it was scattered after the Sept. 11, 2001, attacks. Officials also warned Obama that al-Nusra could try to fill the void as its rival, the Islamic State, lost ground.

Lisa Monaco, Obama’s White House homeland security and counter­terrorism adviser, said Obama’s decision “prioritized our fight against al-Qaeda in Syria, including through targeting their leaders and operatives, some of whom are legacy al-Qaeda members.”

“We have made clear to all parties in Syria that we will not allow al-Qaeda to grow its capacity to attack the U.S., our allies, and our interests,” she said in a statement. “We will continue to take action to deny these terrorists any safe haven in Syria.”

To support the expanded push against al-Nusra, the White House pressed the Pentagon to deploy additional armed drones and intelligence-collection assets in the airspace over northwestern Syria, an area that had been sparsely covered by the United States until now because of its proximity to advanced Russian air-defense systems and aircraft.

A bitterly divided Obama administration had tried over the summer to cut a deal with Moscow on a joint U.S.-Russian air campaign against al-Nusra, in exchange for a Russian commitment to ground Syrian government warplanes and to allow more humanitarian supplies into besieged areas. But the negotiations broke down in acrimony, with Moscow accusing the United States of failing to separate al-Nusra from more moderate rebel groups and Washington accusing the Russians of war crimes in Aleppo.

Armed drones controlled by JSOC stepped up operations in September, according to military officials.

Drone strikes by the U.S. military under the program began in October and have so far killed at least four high-value targets, including al-Nusra’s senior external planner. The Pentagon has disclosed two of the strikes so far. One of the most significant strikes — targeting a gathering of al-Nusra leaders on Nov. 2 — has yet to be disclosed, officials said, speaking on the condition of anonymity to discuss operations.

So far, Russian air-defense systems and aircraft haven’t interfered with stepped-up U.S. operations against al-Nusra. Officials attributed Moscow’s acquiescence to the limited number of U.S. aircraft involved in the missions and to Russia’s interest in letting Washington combat one of the Assad regime’s most potent enemies within the insurgency. U.S. officials said they provided notifications to the Russians before the al-Nusra strikes to avoid misunderstandings.

Officials said the expanded al-Nusra campaign was similar to those that Obama has directed against al-Qaeda affiliates in Yemen, Somalia and Pakistan.

While al-Qaeda’s central leadership in Pakistan has been decimated, the United States now faces more threats involving more extremists from more places than at any time since 9/11, Nicholas J. Rasmussen, director of the National Counterterrorism Center, told a Senate committee in September.

The push into the province of Idlib and other parts of northwestern Syria coincides with ­Pentagon-backed offensives in and around Islamic State strongholds in eastern Syria and in Iraq, which have attracted the majority of U.S. military resources and public attention.

White House officials had considered launching a more systematic campaign to destroy al-Nusra from top to bottom, much like the Pentagon’s approach to the Islamic State. But that option was rejected as too resource-intensive. Many of al-Nusra’s fighters are Syrians who joined the group because of its ample supply of weapons and cash, and its commitment to defeating Assad, not to plot against the West.

Officials said the strikes on leadership targets were meant to send a message to more-moderate rebel units, including those backed by the CIA, to distance themselves from the al-Qaeda affiliate. At critical moments during the five-year-old civil war, moderate rebel units have fought alongside al-Nusra in ground operations against Assad’s forces. In fact, U.S. officials credit those rebel campaigns in the spring of 2015 with putting so much pressure on the Syrian government that Russia and Iran decided to double down militarily in support of Assad.

U.S. officials who opposed the decision to go after al-Nusra’s wider leadership warned that the United States would effectively be doing the Assad government’s bidding by weakening a group on the front line of the counter-
Assad fight. The strikes, these officials warned, could backfire on the United States by bolstering the group’s standing, helping it attract more recruits and resources.

Officials who supported the shift said the Obama administration could no longer tolerate what one of them described as “a deal with the devil,” whereby the United States largely held its fire against al-Nusra because the group was popular with Syrians in rebel-controlled areas and furthered the U.S. goal of putting military pressure on Assad. Russia had accused the United States of sheltering al-Nusra, a charge repeated Thursday in Moscow by Russian Foreign Minister Sergei Lavrov.

“The president doesn’t want this group to be what inherits the country if Assad ever does fall,” a senior U.S. official said. “This cannot be the viable Syrian opposition. It’s al-Qaeda.”

Officials said the administration’s hope is that more-moderate rebel factions will be able to gain ground as both the Islamic State and al-Nusra come under increased military pressure.

A growing number of White House and State Department officials, however, have privately voiced doubts about the wisdom of applying U.S. military power, even covertly, to pressure Assad to step aside, particularly since Russia’s military intervention in Syria last year.

U.S. intelligence officials say they aren’t sure what Trump’s approach to U.S.-backed rebel units will be once he gets briefed on the extent of the covert CIA program. Trump has voiced strong skepticism about arming Syrian rebels in the past, suggesting that U.S. intelligence agencies don’t have enough knowledge about rebel intentions to pick reliable allies.

Defense Secretary Ashton B. Carter and other Pentagon leaders initially resisted the idea of devoting more Pentagon surveillance aircraft and armed drones against al-Nusra. In White House Situation Room meetings, Carter and other top Pentagon officials argued that the military’s resources were needed to combat the Islamic State and that it would be difficult to operate in the airspace given Russia’s military presence, officials said.

While Obama, White House national security adviser Susan E. Rice, Secretary of State John F. Kerry and special presidential envoy Brett McGurk agreed with Carter on the need to keep the focus on the Islamic State, they favored shifting resources to try to prevent al-Nusra from becoming a bigger threat down the road.

A senior defense official said additional drone assets were assigned to the JSOC mission. Carter also made clear that the Pentagon’s goal would be to hit al-Nusra leadership targets, not take strikes to try to separate the moderate rebels from al-Nusra, officials said.

“If we wake up in five years from now, and Islamic State is dead but al-Qaeda in Syria has the equivalent of [the tribal areas of Pakistan] in northwest Syria, then we’ve got a problem,” a second senior U.S. official said.

Assad Says The « Boy In The Ambulance » Is Fake – This Proves It

CaptureAya.PNG

October 21, 2016

From an interview with the Syrian President Bashar Assad by the Swiss SRF 1 TV Channel published October 19 2016:

Journalist: This young boy has become the symbol of the war. I think that you know this picture.President Assad: Of course I saw it.

Journalist: His name is Omran. Five years old.

President Assad: Yeah.

Journalist: Covered with blood, scared, traumatized. Is there anything you would like to say to Omran and his family?

President Assad: There’s something I would like to say to you first of all, because I want you to go back after my interview, and go to the internet to see the same picture of the same child, with his sister, both were rescued by what they call them in the West “White Helmets” which is a facelift of al-Nusra in Aleppo. They were rescued twice, each one in a different incident, and just as part of the publicity of those White Helmets. None of these incidents were true.You can have it manipulated, and it is manipulated. I’m going to send you those two pictures, and they are on the internet, just to see that this is a forged picture, not a real one. We have real pictures of children being harmed, but this one in specific is a forged one.

Assad was half wrong. The picture, printed on page 1 of newspapers all over the « western » world, was not « forged ». It is a real picture from a White Helmet « rescue » video distributed by the Aleppo Media Center (AMC) (which is funded by the French French Ministry of Foreign Affairs). But the scene was carefully staged and we immediately recognized it as staged when it appeared. It was staged like many other « rescue » scenes with « kids saved » by the U.S./UK/D/J/NL financed White Helmets and their associated media.

Look for yourself, trust your eyes.

The « boy in an ambulance » scene features two identifiable kids. Omran and his sister.

Below are pictures of what we believe are the same kids in different scenes.

Here is the girl at another occasion. We will call this scene 1:


bigger

The Houston Chronicle reported about this scene and the picture carries this caption:

An 8-year-old girl named Aya calls out for her father after an airstrike in Syrian on Monday, Oct. 10, 2016.

Another picture from the same Chronicle spread:


bigger

This combined one is captioned:

Left: 8-year-old Aya in her everyday life in Syria. Right: 8-year-old Aya after an airstrike in Syria.

Notice the age as well as the girl’s favorite colors – light turquoise and pink. Compared to the left picture the hair on the right looks powdered and artificially teased. While there is trickle of « blood » on her face and on her dress no wound is visible.

The Chronicle story is sourced to CNN which includes a short (staged) video and adds:

The video and images were posted online by a pro-opposition activist group, Talbiseh Media Center.It shows an 8-year-old girl in a medical facility, her hair and body covered with dust. There’s blood tricking down her forehead, her nose. She looks confused and scared and keeps calling out for her father.

Aya was pulled from under rubble along with her family members when an airstrike hit their home in Talbiseh on Monday. Talbiseh, a large town in northwestern Syria, is about 10 kilometers north of Homs.

A screenshot detail from the video:

The « blood » looks remarkably glossy, unlike natural blood which dries and looks dull pretty fast. The uni-color shirt the girl wears has no arms.

Now the same girl in a different « rescue » scene. We will call this scene 2.


bigger

The truck in the background has a « White Helmets » logo on the door.

A detail of the above picture. It is the same girl as in scene 1. The hair again seems powdered and teased:

Notice: Same habitus, same appearance, same wild hair as in scene 1; no visible wounds; turquoise shirt but with short arms; jeans with glitter

Here is the girl at scene 2 in an ambulance:


bigger

Same shirt and pants as above, no wounds, no pain and not attended to by anybody. Compare this with the video capture of scene 1 the Chronicle and CNN reported on. We strongly believe it is the same girl.

Now what seems to be a different take of scene 2. A « White Helmet » carries the girl and a boy. Notice the same clothing as in the other scene 2 pics above. The pic as well as some of the above from scene 2 was running in the Daily Mail on August 27. The incident is claimed to be the aftermath of a « barrel bombing » in the Bab al-Nairab neighborhood in east-Aleppo.


bigger

Why would two different men carry and « rescue » the girl. She, like the boy, looks fine – same cloth as above, no wounds, no damage to the extremities, no crying – just curiosity.

A detail of the faces in that picture:

A detail of the boy’s face:

Now to the « boy in an ambulance » scene. The boy and the reportedly 8-year old girl on August 17 in the Qaterji neighborhood in east Aleppo introduced as « Omran Daqneesh and his sister. » (pic source):


bigger

The just « rescued » kids sit quietly but completely unattended to in a brand-new €100,000 ambulance. No shock therapy was initiated, no Trendelberg position or at least laying down flat. No one talks to them despite half a dozen photographers being around them.

Details of the kids – here the boy has the powdered and teased « wild hair » look.

Are these the same kids as in scene 2 above?

President Assad believes they are.

We agree. We also believe that all three scenes above are staged. The girl is the same in all three scenes. Her younger brother appears in scene 2 and 3. The White Helmets apparently « rescued » the girl in three different incidents on or about August 17, August 27 and October 10 in three different locations.

Isn’t that a remarkably elysian miracle?

Or is it all part of the serial production of elaborately staged anti-Syrian propaganda? Delivered by a marketing organization (vid) funded by « western » governments and various similar financed opposition « media organizations ».

Trust your eyes.
