Maria: The Obama/Clinton narrative was debunked, EVEN by Western journalists (4 points): __#1) Seymour Hersh (Pulitzer Prize winner) reveals that it was al-Nusra (al-Queda's branch in Syria) who committed the infamous 2013 sarin attack on Syrian civilians, AND that the chemicals were supplied by the Government of Turkey. Hersh also explains that the Obama administration was always aware that US & British inspectors working for the UN implicated al-Nusra (NOT the Syrian government), but ignores the inconvenient facts, because the US would like to see the Syrian government toppled, [source #1]. __#2) According to the article "NATO data: Assad winning the war for Syrians’ hearts and minds" by World Tribune (An American newspaper), (copy & paste from article): "The data, relayed to NATO over the last month, asserted that 70 percent of Syrians support the Assad regime. Another 20 percent were deemed neutral and the remaining 10 percent expressed support for the rebels.", and THAT assessment is from humanitarian-relief organizations ON THE GROUND in Syria, working with the Syrian people [source #2]. __#3) According to The Guardian (British newspaper) al-Assad won re-election (summer, 2014), even as there were multiple candidates on the ballot (and even though the US & Turkey were supporting the terrorists & violence) [source #3]. __#4) Asia Times exposes the truth of the "moderate" terrorists (by Dr. Christina Lin, and Turkey's genocide upon Syrians): (cut & paste in brackets): [These “moderate rebels” are in fact conducting ethno-religious cleansing by killing or expelling Christians, Druze, and other minorities while establishing Sharia Law.]. article title: "A buffer zone for Erdogan’s Turkic settlements in Syria?"
