MATTIS: No Evidence Yet That Assad Responsible For Attack

But he still wants war with Syria.

Published

on

In response to a reported chemical weapons attack earlier this week in Syria, President Donald Trump has pledged to attack the country based on his belief that Syrian President Bashar Al-Assad was behind the attack. But, during a Congressional Hearing, Secretary of Defense James Mattis admitted that there was no evidence that the attack occurred, but he did state that he “believes there was a chemical attack in Syria.”

Mattis stated that he was trying to get investigators with the Organisation for the Prohibition of Chemical Weapons (OPCW) into the country to confirm that the attack occurred.

But Mattis admits that even if the investigators can confirm that the attack occurred, they will not be able to confirm who committed the attack.

The popular narrative is that the attacks were committed by Syrian President Bashar Al-Assad. President Donald Trump has been mirroring that all week in threatening Tweets directed at Syria and Russia.

But as pointed out by Tucker Carlson, not only is there no proof that Assad was behind the attacks, but it makes no sense for Assad to commit the attack. Carlson pointed out that Assad’s forces were winning the civil war in Syria, and how committing a chemical attack is one of the few things he could do to change that.

Both sides of the aisle in Washington are demanding war with Syria. Maybe everyone should step back and wait for some actual evidence before sending our brave men and women in the military to war.

Two Men Arrested for Planning Terrorist Attack on Trump Tower in Support of ISIS

They’re from South Carolina and Texas.

Published

on

The FBI has arrested two men and charged them with planning terrorist attacks on locations such as New York’s Trump Tower in support of the Islamic State of Iraq and Syria.

Kristopher Sean Matthews of South Carolina and Jaylyn Christopher Molina of Texas have been charged with conspiring to provide material support or resources to a designated foreign terrorist organization.

Matthews adopted the pseudonym Ali Jibreel, and Molina the name Abdur Rahim.

The pair allegedly plotted to attack government facilities and New York’s Trump Tower, discussing their plans in jihadist chatrooms. They were busted by federal informants within these honeypots.

We need to stick together, we need to defeat them, we need to take a lot of casualties,” said Molina of the pair’s plotting. Molina spoke of his allegiance to ISIS in the server. “You are my enemy (America) and never will I wear your flag … but I will raise the black flag of Allah.

They also spoke of the proposition of traveling to Syria in order to fight for ISIS, an idea that would’ve almost certainly resulted in their quick capture or death. American citizens caught fighting for ISIS on foreign battlefields have proven to be a legal nightmare for American military and civil law to manage.

Both were arrested on Monday. They face a maximum penalty of twenty years in prison, with a lifetime of supervised release.

These clowns didn’t get very far in actually planning acts of violence in support of ISIS, and they seem to have somewhat missed the boat- ISIS has largely been defeated by American-backed Kurdish militias and the Iraqi and Syrian governments. But they deserve punishment nonetheless.
