Obama and his team of liars pushed the story that Assad’s government had disposed of their chemical weapons.
According to them, ALL of these Nazi designed weapons of war were destroyed.
Clearly, after last weeks chemical attack that is not the case.
Now, we could be understanding of the Obama admin if they were lied to by Russia and Syria. Knowing how these governments operate, it wouldn’t be shocking to find that out.
However, that is simply not what happened.
From Washington Examiner, A former Obama official acknowledged Sunday that the U.S. “always knew” an agreement with Syrian President Bashar Assad did not clear all chemical weapons out of Syria, despite the fact that the administration touted the deal as an unequivocal success at the time.
“We always knew we had not gotten everything, that the Syrians had not been fully forthcoming in their declaration,” Tony Blinken, a former deputy secretary of state and former deputy national security adviser under Barack Obama, told the New York Times.
In 2014 John Kerry stated ALL the weapons were gone AND there were signs prior to Blinken’s statement that the Obama administration knew.
Noting “gaps and inconsistencies in Syria’s declaration,” former Director of National Intelligence James Clapper testified before Congress last year that he believed the Syrian regime still had chemical weapons.
“We assess that Syria has not declared all the elements of its chemical weapons program to the Chemical Weapons Convention,” he explained.
The Department of the Treasury introduced new sanctions on Syria in January, citing the continued use of chemical weapons by the Syrian regime.
So Obama and Susan Rice both knew that not all the chemical weapons were gone, but despite that knowledge they decided to lie to the American public.
Susan Rice stated, “We were able to get the Syrian government to voluntarily and verifiably give up its chemical weapons stockpile.”
While good ol’ Barry said, “What is true is Assad got rid of his chemical weapons.”
Years of Obama’s lies makes you wonder about things. Like, how bad the Iranian deal really is.
One thing is for certain. Trump’s team will dig up the dirt and then fix it!
Thank GOD Hillary wasn’t elected to continue this legacy of lies and bad governing.
