This assertion flies in the face of the White House (NSC) Memorandum which was rapidly produced and declassified to justify an American Tomahawk missile strike against the Shayrat airbase in Syria.
Mattis offered no temporal qualifications, which means that both the 2017 event in Khan Sheikhoun and the 2013 tragedy in Ghouta are unsolved cases in the eyes of the Defense Department and Defense Intelligence Agency. …
Serious, experienced chemical weapons experts and investigators such as Hans Blix, Scott Ritter, Gareth Porter and Theodore Postol have all cast doubt on “official” American narratives regarding President Assad employing Sarin.
These analysts have all focused on the technical aspects of the two attacks and found them not to be consistent with the use of nation-state quality Sarin munitions.
The 2013 Ghouta event, for example, employed home-made rockets of the type favored by insurgents [rebels]. The White House Memorandum on Khan Sheikhoun seemed to rely heavily on testimony from the Syrian White Helmets who were filmed at the scene having contact with supposed Sarin-tainted casualties and not suffering any ill effects.
Likewise, these same actors were filmed wearing chemical weapons training suits around the supposed “point of impact” in Khan Sheikhoun, something which makes their testimony (and samples) highly suspect. A training suit offers no protection at all, and these people would all be dead if they had come into contact with real military-grade Sarin.
…it is time for America to stop shooting first and asking questions later.

Report: One service leads all others in number of sex partners
A recently released report by the RAND Corporation shined a light on one service’s propensity for sexual promiscuity.
The Health Related Behaviors Survey, which collected data over parts of 2015 and 2016, found that Marines are significantly more likely to engage in risky sexual behavior than members of any other branch. Additional topics like binge drinking, tobacco use, physical well-being and mental health were also explored in the report.
Of the nearly 17,000 responses received from service members in the Army, Air Force, Marine Corps, Navy and Coast Guard, Marines led nearly every category of sexual risk behaviors and outcomes over the past year.
More than 24 percent of Marines reported having sex with more than one partner over the course of the data collection process, compared to 16.6 percent in the Army, 18.8 percent in the Air Force and 22.1 percent in the Navy.
Devil dogs were also tops when it came to having sex with a new partner without using a condom, with more than 40 percent of Marine respondents reporting having done so. …
Close to one-third of service members were found to have met binge-drinking criteria in the month before completing the survey. The 30 percent who reported engaging in such behavior was actually an improvement from previous reports.
Marines, however, engaged in binge drinking at a rate of 42.6 percent, a concerning contrast to the rest of the field.
U.S. Ambassador to the U.N. Nikki Haley addressed the group Christians United for Israel (CUFI) first annual summit, which coincides with the 70th anniversary of Israel’s independence. Ambassador Haley. was introduced and presented with an award by Pastor John Hagee, CUFI founder and national chair.
“..Sheldon Adelson, Paul Singer and Brendon Marcus — it’s three rich Jews control the foreign policy of the United States of America, and we’re in a situation where we can’t even say the word ‘Jew.’ … We’re hoping to achieve something here when we can’t even name the people who are doing what we are objecting to” [without being labelled ‘anti-Semitic’].

Jesus said the PEACEMAKERS will be BLESSED — not ‘Christian’ Zionist warmongers, who are “blessing Israel to get blessed,” a mistranslation of Genesis 12:3, which is about blessing Abraham, not modern day, Talmudic, currently-anti-Christ Israel where most of the ‘Jews’ aren’t even Semitic!
