Associated Press: Assad may not have launched Weapons

Yesterday, Barack Obama told a couple of adoring sycophants in Judy Woodruff and Gwen Ifill the following about the use of chemical weapons in Syria:

“We have concluded that the Syrian government in fact, carried these (chemical weapons attack) out.”

Assad: Obama makes him laugh

Assad: Obama makes him laugh

One day later, The Associated Press (h/t WZ) reported something a bit different:

The intelligence linking Syrian President Bashar Assad or his inner circle to an alleged chemical weapons attack is no “slam dunk,” with questions remaining about who actually controls some of Syria’s chemical weapons stores and doubts about whether Assad himself ordered the strike, U.S. intelligence officials say.

President Barack Obama declared unequivocally Wednesday that the Syrian government was responsible, while laying the groundwork for an expected U.S. military strike.

Of course, evidence we’ve produced indicates that it was the Muslim Brotherhood rebels who used chemical weapons.

Two nights ago, Fox News Channel’s Bill O’Reilly again proved his ignorance about who the Muslim Brotherhood is while also expressing confidence in what the Obama administration is putting out. For example, on his August 27th show, O’Reilly asserted as a matter of fact that the delivery system for chemical weapons that were used couldn’t have been used by the rebels.

Uh, Bill. Look at this.

Retired Colonel’s Ralph Peters and David Hunt destroy O’Reilly in this exchange:

    Rupert Murdoch proved his ignorance by selling out stock and basically selling out FOX News credibility to the Saudi prince as indicated in the following report:

    “At the annual meeting of News Corporation, parent of Fox News, chairman Rupert Murdoch confirmed that a call from a Saudi Prince had resulted in a change in how the Fox News Channel covered the Muslim riots in France in 2005. Prince Alwaleed Bin Talal, a significant investor in News Corporation, told Murdoch he objected to highlighting the Muslim role in the riots.”

    Fox News is no longer trustworthy in my opinion and that network has joined the minions of leftist media while trying to pass as a legitimate “fair and balanced” operation. Saudi control of American media at its best.

    The video has been taken down from YouTube. Bill O’Reilly disgusts me (I can’t even last 1 minute), so it’s probably just as well.

    People always accuse me of “watching too much faux news” but I NEVER watch it – canceled cable years ago. I’m WAY to the right of Fox, and with a certain prince owning stock, they can never be honest about the real agenda of the Islamists.

      I see you found another copy.

      Sorry I watched – O’Reilly makes my blood boil for the same reason that my senator (Corker) makes my blood boil. They both are idiots who think they are smarter than everyone else. Both Bill and Bob actually think they can trust anything that comes out of Kerry’s mouth. Fools and tools.

    O’Reilly’s opinion of himself is a bit too high and it shows.
