HOW MANY LIES NOW?

(Dec.8, 2013) — In September, Barack Hussein Obama and putative Secretary of State John Kerry stated that they possessed evidence that Syrian president Bashar al-Assad had released chemical weapons against his own people on August 21, 2013.
Obama had insisted that a U.S. military attack against Bashar’s government forces was necessary in response, but Congress opposed it along with a majority of the American people.
An unexpected diplomatic solution was later reached as a result of an offhanded remark made by Kerry.
Yahoo! News, which is normally left-leaning, reported on Sunday that a “Pulitzer Prize-winning journalist” contends that the Obama regime lied about the perpetrators of the attack.
The journalist, Seymour Hersh, has written for The New York Times, UPI, and the Associated Press and in 2004 broke the story of alleged prisoner abuses by U.S. soldiers at the Abu Ghraib detention center in Iraq.
Hersh’s coverage of the Vietnam War led to his exposure of the My Lai Massacre for which he was awarded the Pulitzer Prize in 1970. He earned his reputation as an investigative journalist by “walking out of regimented press briefings at the Pentagon and seeking out one-on-one interviews with high-ranking officers.”
Hersh currently writes for The New Yorker. His claim regarding Syria appears in the December 8, 2013 edition of the London Review of Books, in which he states that interviews he conducted with “intelligence and military officers” on the Syrian chemical attack revealed what the officers characterized as “the deliberate manipulation of intelligence” on the part of the Obama regime.
Since June, Obama has been providing material aid to the Syrian rebels, which consist of groups with Al Qaeda and other terrorist members,but several reports suggest that the aid began up to a year prior.
Ten days after the alleged August chemical attack, Walid Shoebat and others reported that the rebels were likely responsible, not the Syrian government. However, on August 28, the Obama regime had “ruled out” any chance of the rebels’ having been responsible for the gas attack.
On September 27, 2013, The Guardian quoted Hersh as having said that most mainstream news companies should be “closed down,” including The New York Times, for “carrying water for Obama”[Warning: explicit language used]. Hersh also claimed that the reported killing of terrorist mastermind Osama bin Laden in May 2011 was “one big lie.”
The Obama regime has lied about the health care bill known as “Obamacare;” the cause of the attack in Benghazi, Libya which killed four Americans on September 11 of last year; Obama’s fraudulent documentation showing that he was born in Hawaii when “he has no Hawaiian birth certificate,” according to a law enforcement investigation; his relationship with former domestic terrorist Bill Ayers; his life story; and has fomented racial strife and class warfare in America.
Hersh stated that a “political assessment” lacking “specifics” was used to justify the Obama regime’s case for striking Syria rather than “an assessment by the intelligence community.”
It has been stated that the Obama regime has manipulated information on the internet in an attempt to present a favorable impression. In 2009, former White House Communications Director Anita Dunn stated that the Obama campaign had “controlled the media.”
Obama continues to promise “an unprecedented level of openness in government.”
