"There was nothing to destroy." Ex-CIA official commented on the attack on Syria

27
The latest data on the attack by the US and its allies on Syria show that the strike was based on "inaccurate intelligence", and no chemical centers weapons were not destroyed, passes RIA News Statement by former CIA operative officer Phil Giraldi.




Recall last Saturday the United States, Britain and France launched rocket attacks on Syrian government facilities, which, in their opinion, are used to produce chemical weapons.

The data now leads to the likelihood that no chemical weapons or their components at these points were hit. Therefore, if the purpose of the strike was to destroy these enterprises, the attacks could be based on poor-quality intelligence or the likelihood that there was nothing to destroy there initially,
said giraldi.

According to him, “the time for the attack was chosen so that the experts of the OPCW do not have time to do their work and, possibly, provide a report stating that there is no evidence of the use of gas, which would complicate the punishment.”

Giraldi believes that in the near future there will be no new attacks, “given the ridicule that followed the strike.”

He also noted that Donald Trump's desire to withdraw troops from Syria "is facing serious opposition" in Congress, the army and among allies in the region.

US ground forces are likely to be leaving soon if Trump gets his way. However, it is opposed by Israel and most of the congress, which means that everything can turn out differently, and they (the troops) will remain with the aim of undermining Iranian activity,
concluded Giraldi.

Earlier, the US President said he intends to withdraw American troops from Syria as soon as possible.

    This was a blow to Russia! We were checked, we did not answer .. Now the next stage will be!

      And we did not have to answer. The contract clearly states we are helping Assad fight with ISIS but not with the United States. And we will respond with an American only in one case if the missiles fly to where the Russian military is.

        - Senya calls from Odessa to a friend in Israel: - Monya, what is going on there? ..
        Yes, America is fighting a little with Russia ...
        - So what, there are losses?
        YES, there is ... - America released 100 tamahawks for 150 million dollars and wounded one Syrian ...
        - And what did the Russians lose? ..
        Senya, you won’t believe it, but the Russians didn’t even fight with them ...

        hi
        A show to show its toughness. Even members of the Senate state that no chem. Assad’s attack was not. This also proves the last demand of Don Trump to NATO members to reimburse the United States for the costs incurred by a blow to Syria. Business from business.

        And ours even got something in the piggy bank:

      No, it’s just that Russia indicated to the United States where to shoot and set a target so as not to miss. But you can’t hide the awl in a bag. So the wave of shame for the United States went.

          Giraldi betrayed the "God-chosen" with patrons. Israel has done and is doing everything to Anglo-Saxons settled on their borders on an ongoing basis. So it will be more comfortable for them. Therefore, they "cured" the Ishilovites and any rabble opposing Assad. And the world is being hung up with noodles about the "crazy" Iran and Palestine, which "do not give them life." yes hi

      Everything is more complicated here. Nobody needs the third world war. Trump announced the victory over Isil, Assad for the (supposedly) chemical. "punished" the attack. Now he is on horseback, and maybe he will be able to withdraw his forces from Syria.

      Don did not scare Russia. 1. Now he has a lot of problems with China because of the islands, he had to try to ring like steel eggs; 2. To postpone the showdown for the "chemical attack"; 3. Try to steal money for your defense industry from Arabs, Israel and the EU; 4 Please your hawks.

    Something is already being fanned in Armenia ...

    In Armenia, the “opposition” wanted Europe. So let's see how they succeed. Turks with ayzers instantly arrange such a Europe for them that the 1915th will seem to them a “good Christmas fairy tale”.

    Suppose that the States received accurate intelligence about the month, those locations of chemical weapons. And they struck a rocket at this place (s). Doesn’t it bother anyone that chemical weapons will thus be dispersed over a large area and lead to numerous casualties? Where is the logic?

      What is the logic? Prior to this, warehouses with chemical. weapons "destroyed"? There was a contamination of the area? That's right, it wasn’t!

      hi
      Alexander, do not pretend to be naive. Anglo-Saxons are well aware that chem. Assad has no weapons. Russia 2 years ago loaded the last barrel from the HOB onto US vehicles and the Americans reported on its destruction (destroyed or transferred to some of their bases, only the US command knows). The adventure with a blow to Syria did not succeed, but the cunning "cunning Englishwoman" immediately came up with a new legend to cover the previous one:

        The blow was indicative and warning. The Americans have shown that they can hit targets in its capital from three seas on all sides from Syria. The fact that in these objects there is no chemical weapon, the Americans knew.

          For what? Show what they are "warriors-UH"? Thunder maracas to the whole world? The country of the Hollywood show, led by a showman, covering up internal squabbles with rocket launches. But Israel, the main instigator of the United States and its allies in the BV, breaking the "red lines" first, exposes its own.

    Just we answered. Such attacks can be completely countered by Syria's weak air defense. And we won’t even get our hands dirty about it. This ignoring is tantamount to mocking.
