Fake news: the Elephant in the Room

April 11, 2017

When commenting on the “new” phenomenon of “fake news” with presumably a multiplier effect with the Internet, there is an elephant in the room getting ignored by most of the traditionally respected actors in the sphere of news and commentary. They have formed a kind of “mutual admiration society” with a circularly reinforcing view of events that excludes outlying and dissenting views.

The ones who are most troubled about fake news and looking for ways to limit its effect are the ones often most guilty, in other words.

Tabloids have peppered newsstands in stores and supermarkets for decades, including testimonials of women who gave birth to two-headed aliens.

This “new” theme of “fake news” was tossed out first in the 2016 presidential campaign, pushed by both Obama himself and the Clinton campaign.

In a typical use of the term, the Washington Post was so aghast at the fake news scare that it published a list of fake news sites, throwing in serious right-leaning sites questioning official ruling party views, like Breitbart.com, in with actual blatant and overtly “fake news” sites like “The Onion”.

And of all the accused “fake news” sites getting fingered by “authoritative” sources in this discussion, is a simple news link aggregator, www.drudgereport.com,  that does not even pretend to offer its own content, and does not even have original commentary, and includes links that are even helping drive people to traditional newspaper sites like the Washington Post itself!

That list was made by an apparently “fake front” for some group that demanded anonymity from The W. P. to protect itself from blow-back purportedly, and then quickly disappeared into the cyber ether.

But let us look at a mere handful of items from the history of “fake news”.

The sinking of the Battleship Maine was immediately blamed on Spain by the Respectable Establishment Press in the United States. To this day the cause of the explosion that sunk it, deep in the bowels of the ship, is a mystery.

The sinking of the Lusitania was used as a pretext to involve the U. S. in World War One, the “Great War”. We now know, a fact hidden then, that the Lusitania was loaded with all kinds of bellicose material. Instead of reminding both Woodrow Wilson and the public of his guarantee that he would not involve the country in that war, it cheered the battle and helped cover up the military nature of that ship’s cargo, using civilian passengers as “human shields”.

More recently, the chemical attack in Syria in 2013 proved to be a “false flag” attack by the rebels supported by the USA in funding and equipment, as reported in several European newspapers and by respected award-winning journalist Seymour Hirsch: https://www.lrb.co.uk/v36/n08/seymour-m-hersh/the-red-line-and-the-rat-line
Those rebels were actively developing these weapons. The version of the recent 2017 attack that a standard Syrian bomb hit a rebel depot storing such weapons is a much more credible version.

And yet, most, though not all, the Elephant in the Room swallowed up the story without questioning why the winning side of the war, now not having to worry about Trump’s administration removing him (“Regime change is off the table”), would want to risk it all by using chemicals.

There is much ado about nothing. The winners of any crackdown on “fake news” are in a Truth is Lies ministry, as in Orwellian worlds. “War is the health of the state”, the saying goes, justifying attacks on civil liberties.

There is another good example of the “wild west” Internet doing more good than bad. ACM Communications recently published an article about the posting of what purported to be a solution to the “P versus not P” problem. It was refuted quickly, in about one day. One day! That used to take submission to peer review, with months required for review then publishing, and do it again for a refutation if it got past the months of peer review.

The Internet is Peer Review on Steroids.

In computing and science, there is not much to fear there either, except from the self-appointed “opinion leaders”. America still has a great many people thinking for themselves.

Fake Syria story is an insult to our intelligence

April 10, 2017

ISIS and U. S. backed jihadists have used chemicals before. The 2013 attack was proven to be a false flag staged by McCain’s “decent” rebels.

Plus, new intelligence says ISIS and Associates had stockpiles of the stuff there.

Assad is winning against his foreign enemies in Syria.

Assad is sitting in the cat bird seat. Trump was just last week saying regime change is off the table, and killing off ISIS is the top priority.

So in that geopolitical context, what kind of crazy contortions of suspension of disbelief has Assad playing chicken with Trump and daring him to destroy his air base??

Americans should roar in disgust at this insult to our intelligence!

Mockingbird Media promoted architects of Libyan racist genocide

November 24, 2016

Big Liars Media accused Trump of getting support from people who say “What about us?” which of course includes the groups who defend whites from discrimination.

Ron Paul handled it quite well. They “accused” him of having support from racist groups and asked him if he would disavow them.

His quick answer was “There’s nothing I can do about that”, a true answer that also was not insulting to supporters of any stripe.

The racism accusations against Ron Paul blew back up into their faces when he mentioned his plan to pardon all non-violent drug offenders on his FIRST DAY as president, and the mixed-race couple that could not find a doctor for the wife’s pregnancy until Ron Paul enthusiastically treated them.

Anyway, people should not get their hopes up too much. Trump should remember who elected him IN SPITE of the slurs and lies from those cretins.

Remember also, that these Big Corporate Media agit-prop organizations are organs of DEEP STATE, and they ALL have embedded CIA operatives (see Operation Mockingbird), and they are now officially another branch of government.

Trump is not the government, and ever since JFK’s assassination, some who studied that killing think it amounted to a coup d’etat executed by the CIA and they would not give it up. The attempted assassination of Ronald Reagan by a Hinckley –a family with close ties to the Bush family, with George H. W. Bush being former CIA head– slowed down the Reagan attack on the federal bureaucracy.

The CIA’s cheerleaders had motive to kill JFK certainly, but so did many others who probably pull the strings inside the CIA behind the curtain, the same ones who arranged for the central banks to take over national currencies and central banks everywhere in the world. These are members of the same Oligarch shadow government Oliver North talked about once, the “secret societies” much mentioned outside Mockingbird Media.

So spread the word. You can’t trust MOCKINGBIRD MEDIA. Forget calling it “Mainstream”, it’s not “mainstream” anymore. After Brexit, after the way markets reacted to the Trump victory, after the rise of resistance in Europe to the Globalist Oligarchs, they are not so mainstream anymore.

Even in Latin America, signaled by the wildly popular Uribe’s election THREE times, and jump-started into international attention in Latin America especially by the defiance of Honduras against the entire world in 2009 in its defense of its own sovereignty against the Chavista subversion, surely engineered by Worldwide Public Enemy Number One George Soros (keynote speaker in November 2008 at a Caribbean-Central American conference in the Dominican Republic.

Latin America followed Honduras’ example. El Salvador’s leftist president forthwith nixed plans to join the Chavez oil club, a former president of Guatemala suggested uniting foreign policy with Honduras, the most honest elections and most scrutinized in the hemisphere that year brought recognition to Lobos’ government quickly, the mayor of Caracas pined for the kind of male organs Honduras had shown. Paraguay impeached its runaway renegade leftist president. A multitude marched in protest in Brazil, organized by an unknown libertarian. Later, Brazil has removed its Chavez-supported leftist president from office and her replacement in constitutional succession is a free-market believer. Buenos Aires has elected Macri its mayor in an upset for the Kirchner presidential couple.

Remember the scandal when Chavista Venezuelan operatives were busted smuggling in suitcases full of cash meant to help elect the Kirchner’s?

The Globalist Cabal has trillions of dollars of wealth at stake, and power over the masses. In keeping with the deepest of World Government Deep State agents, they are not going to go quietly into the night. These are people who are responsible for not just targeted political assassinations, a long series of false flags that got a lot of people hurt and killed, but mass murders on giant scales.

One recent example of their sociopathy is the support by the Hillary Clinton State Department of al Qaeda in Honduras and their overthrow of Gaddafi and their massacre that obliterated the entire town of black-skinned Libyans in Towargah. That was a true racist genocide that nobody of the Obama-Clinton administration has answered for and there should be some very loud outrage.

Instead, we have Mockingbird Media hyperventilating over the color of some clowns who can’t get more than a few dozen idiots together and who allegedly want to return to whiteness? Really? Can they get any more outrageous than that?

WHERE IS THE OUTRAGE OVER THE RACIST OBAMA-CLINTON INSTALLED REGIMES IN LIBYA? Where is the religious freedom advocacy so protective of Muslims in the United States when it comes to the bands of murderers in Syria that take pleasure in beheading Christians?

And where is Mockingbird Media’s over the Obama-Clinton support for these murderous gangs?

“Be not deceived; God is not mocked: for whatsoever a man soweth, that shall he also reap.” Galatians 6:7

“Come now, and let us reason together, saith the LORD: though your sins be as scarlet, they shall be as white as snow; though they be red like crimson, they shall be as wool.” – Isaiah 1:18

Obama actions contradict what he says

November 5, 2016

Obama invokes the Constitution against Trump: He’s the most over-ruled president in history on constitutional grounds.

Obama says Trump would shut down the Press. Obama tried to remove Fox News from the WH Press Pool. Obama’s IRS tried to wear down recognition for applicants of the political opposition, not just Tea Party applicants.

Obama says Trump would throw opponents in jail. Obama promised the “most transparent” government in history. The Obama administration has criminally prosecuted more whistleblowers than any other administration in history.

Obama preaches about avoiding discrimination against people of different faiths. But Muslims from Syria are three times as likely to receive asylum from his administration than Christians, Alawites or other faiths. Wikileaks reveals the discrimination in his administration against Arab Christians for jobs.

Obama preaches against hating others based on religion. Yet every time a terrorist invokes Islam in an incident, he directs this warning against everybody else.

Obama reacts to warnings about Islamic radicalism by pointing to the Christian Crusades. He never mentions that the excuse for the Crusades was to reclaim the “Holy Land” after Islamic armies had conquered them by force.

Obama blasted Trump for saying that if he says something, government employees would do it. Of course what he didn’t say was that he has “a pen and a phone”.

Reason: Obama is obviously a warmongering president

November 21, 2015

About Steve Chapman, writer of record of this article at Reason Magazine:
Hillary’s Appetite for War

The author says “The president himself is partly to blame” for getting Democrat Party members and followers and the public “inured” to war. Hey guys, he is to blame for jumping in with both feet. President Truman hung out a sign on his desk: “The buck stops here”. The expression, for you younger guys, means he’s the boss and takes the blame for his underlings.

Obama loves to blame the “top one percent” for everything their companies do, why soft-pedal this thing with him. What, he listens to his Secretary of State and former rival for top dog, and his coterie of adviser women, and he has no blame for anything?

And then this “Reason” author says something that in this real world sounds irrational:

“Obama has also refused to be panicked into reckless military action against Syria”.

BALONEY.

Americans were tired of war, and even when they tried the false flag operation of getting the Syrian “rebels” to use chemical weapons against civilians while blaming it on Syria, in one marvelous demonstration of the importance of an independent free-for-all Internet, it took one lonely unsung European reporter to blow the whistle on them.

(By the way, the U. S. has stockpiles of those weapons, and used a banned chemical warfare weapon against its own civilians at Waco, Texas. That “tear gas” was a chemical used in Vietnam to kill the Vietcong in their tunnels.)

In other words, Obama either approved the operation or post-facto nodded at it.

OBAMA IS ALL IN AGAINST ASSAD AND HELPING SYRIAN REBELS AND ISIS INCLUDED

Everybody who isn’t head-stuck in the sand knows by now that D.C. is pouring aid into Saudi Arabia as back-channel help for the “rebels” in Syria. Almost everybody should know by now –if you’re paying attention– that Saudi Arabia is pouring rivers of financing and arms to ISIS. On occasion the war hawks talk about using the Middle East allies more, but they don’t say too much.

Now we find out that Obama has deliberately ordered the troops to let ISIS sell their oil.

Somebody reading this is rolling their eyes because they believe government media (PBS, NPR, CNN, FNC,FBN, CNBC, CBS, ABC, NYT, Washington Post, etc). He just announced in a big news story that they dropped leaflets warning oil truck drivers to get out of the way, for around 100 of them waiting at the ISIS oil docks.

The Pentagon has been watching they said, over a THOUSAND of these trucks filling up and they have not bombed them.

Obama is waging a PRETEND war against ISIS. Obama is all in for helping al Qaeda and ISIS overthrow Assad in Syria. Obama saw nothing wrong with Hillary Clinton’s helping al Qaeda get rid of Gaddafi.

Gaddafi had become one of the best allies against al Qaeda in the Middle East. He turned over their bad guys and he gave up his nuclear program. That’s why he was confused about the West attacking him so hard.

What about the propaganda against him that claimed he was attacking civilians? My question is, why did the media go along with that propaganda without mentioning that the Libyan “rebels” were doing much worse? Where is the story that exposes the lie that said all the blacks defending Gaddafi were “mercenaries”, when in fact they were the people who were treated well in Gaddafi’s Libya and that knew the Yankee-supported NATO-armed “rebels” were fatally dangerous to them?

Why did nobody ask why the Obama-Clinton regime was supporting rebels that committed much worse atrocities against civilians? If getting rid of monsters is the goal, why aren’t they attacking the worst of them?

“Massacre of Blacks in Libya By NATO-backed Rebels Continues as World Watches”:
http://www.globalresearch.ca/massacre-of-blacks-in-libya-by-nato-backed-rebels-continues-as-world-watches/26643

Who in their right mind believes this? Oh, yeah, maybe the same ones that believed the troops would find weapons of mass destruction in Iraq.
https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=GvliUuXjbL4

And quoting a Washington Post propagandist that said Obama shows “an appreciation not just of the limits of U.S. power, but also of the limited need to exercise it.”

We can all see that he pushes U.S. power where he wants it, and that is, AGAINST the United States and its future. Contrary to the “peaceful guy” government propaganda, he is actively supporting operations that will be the country’s ruin, and he knows it. How can he not, unless his IQ is a lot less that his hiding of college records suggests.

You cannot blame Hillary Clinton for Obama’s continued war against Syria, his pretense bombing of ISIS while supporting Saudi Arabia’s support for ISIS in Syria. You can blame Obama for refusing to cooperate with Russia against ISIS, but not as a “weakness” or “peaceful” man. The truth is rather obvious: they don’t want it known that their support for “moderate Syrians” is a bogus smokescreen disinformation cover. Russia asked the U.S. to tell them where to avoid bombing, then asked them where to bomb.

How strange, two months or so after Obama’s own propaganda campaign for bombing Assad’s forces had hit a blowback wall, ISIS bursts onto the news cycle with captured American tanks and captured Iraqi oil wells, complete with a change in American opinion.

Which believers have laid down their lives as a witness for unbelievers?

English: There are apparently as many Christia...

There are apparently as many Christians as Muslims in Lebanon (Photo credit: Wikipedia)

Just the truth in the real world. I met one Coptic Christian lady from Egypt, her brother was killed during the “Arab Spring“.

There have been slaughters of Christians by Muslims and attempts at “ethnic cleansing” in Nigeria and other Muslims countries. But not all Arabs or Muslims are at it, like this article totally ignored, Rand did not say “all” Muslims, just a fraction. —> In fact, in Egypt, most of the people did not like the way that President Morsi (dubiously “elected”) was working to rule as under Sharia law as dictator. He did not rule as a moderate.

In Syria the Christians are terrified, and the Syrian (so-called) “rebels” have sworn to “purify” Nineveh, the place with the oldest Christian community in the world.

Iraq has already lost many of its Christians.

Christians are targeted everywhere, but it’s not necessarily worst where you might expect. The international news organizations have a heavy filter for these incidents.

But are there fringe Christians doing this around the world? No there are not. So the News Spinners Media has to make do with some merry bank of idiots from Kansas who can’t get any more than family and second cousins to join him.

“Die, Christian dog, die!” shouted the United States financed (and armed) Muslim as he gloated over the body. The Syrian rebels are seeking out Christians everywhere they take over.

There is a difference between a religion founded by a man who laid down the lives of unbelievers for his doctrines, and a faith brought to the world by a man who laid down his OWN life for unbelievers, to save them, and then rose from the dead to prove his power to do so on the third day.

There is a difference between the religious faith that grew by conquest by the sword its first few centuries, convert or die, and one that grew by believers laying down their OWN lives as testimony to the power of love.

This is the love of the Son of Hamas, a son of a Muslim Brotherhood founder, who saw the brutal treatment of Muslims by other Muslims in prison, and was shocked by the fact that Jesus said “Love thine enemies“.

Putin and Obama: One hypocrite does not purify the other

DAVOS/SWITZERLAND, 27JAN10 - George Soros, Cha...

DAVOS/SWITZERLAND, 27JAN10 – George Soros, Chairman, plutocrat. (Photo credit: Wikipedia)

Putin lectured the US from his Kremlin. There are plenty of massacres on his hands too, so the neo-cons and the neo-libs handed him a deal he could not refuse, to look to be the peacemaker and the reasonable one in this whole Syria.

The neo-cons are trying to take the conversation back from the libertarians, eyes-open Christians, and the Tea Party, and save it for the Republican-Democrat plutocrat cartel. Beware. Lots of the talking stupid heads on Fox (and for sure many of the rest of them) are singing just like George Soros wants them to. Soros wants very badly for the USA to attack everybody around the world? I smell his stink on a lot of money going around, talking points in hushed emails on secret journalist chat rooms (this was exposed a few years ago, remember?)

Why is he doing that? Remember he’s the guy who says the USA is the most dangerous country in the world. He hates what the country used to be, he hates that so many of us still think for ourselves, that so many of us love Jesus Christ. Remember he knows we’re bankrupt, and all these wars are making us more broke. So therefore the US has a “duty to protect” everybody in the world.

Except the innocent, of course, he does not say, but his actions speak louder than words. He is only one of a group in the shadows, there is no doubt, how could all this stupidity happen so big so fast otherwise?

So forget about these voices from the past, who say the problem is that Obama should have thrown the missiles anyway, consequences be damned.

All over a false flag operation that killed a lot of innocent lives. This thing is going to blow back in their faces.

The Obama-Kerry duet have spoken their own judgment. They are responsible for chemical attacks with weapons banned by treaty on peaceful civilians in a community near Waco, and apparently for the same thing with worse substances in a land that used to be far away.

Like the devil, they are showing us their own crimes and blaming it on the victims. The Pharisees did this to the true Messiah, now this fake poser wants to do it to them.

Christians in the US are not blameless. Our fathers were complicit in letting the Devil get the run of the house, and backed off when they were told not to mess with their tax deduction –as if it were a gift of the ungodly. We won’t steal a piece of your tithe if you just do as you’re told…

Mother Agnes Mariam: ‘Footage of Syria Chemical Attack is a Fraud’

Daniel McAdamsat 02:30 am EDT on September 10, 2013

http://www.lewrockwell.com/lrc-blog/mother-agnes-mariam-footage-of-syria-chemical-attack-is-a-fraud/

Mother Agnes Mariam el-Salib, mother superior of St. James Monastery in Qara, Syria, told RT today that she has evidence that the video footage currently being shopped around by Sen. Feinstein and the Obama administration as proof that the Syrian president used gas on his own people is a fraud. Part of the problem with the videos is that they were all taken nearly at the same time as the alleged attack itself. How to gather all the bodies in one place and begin videotaping in some cases before the attack had even taken place?

Mother Agnes Mariam is a Catholic nun who has lived and worked in Syria for the past 20 years. She has been particularly outspoken about the atrocities committed by the US-backed Syrian rebels against Christians and other minorities. Her reputation is impeccable, though she is routinely slandered in Western media.

Said Mother Agnes Mariam of the events on the morning of August 21:

I am not saying that no chemical agent was used in the area – it certainly was. But I insist that the footage that is now being peddled as evidence had been fabricated in advance. I have studied it meticulously, and I will submit my report to the UN Human Rights Commission based in Geneva.

Also new today, Belgian teacher and former Free Syrian Army supporter Pierre Piccinin, who was kidnapped by the Syrian insurgents and just released, vehemently denied that the Syrian government was behind the chemical attack.

Piccinin stated to RTL as he landed back in Belgium after his release:

It is a moral duty to say this. It is not the government of Bashar Al-Assad which used sarin gas or another combat gas in the suburbs of Damascus. We are certain of this following a conversation that we had. It hurts me to say this because I have been a fervent supporter of the Free Syrian Army since May 2012 in its just struggle for democracy.

He promised to submit the proof of his assertions to the authorities. But will anyone listen?

Mother Agnes Mariam also pointed out the double standards among Western governments and the Western media. On August 5, US-backed insurgents went on a murderous rampage in several Alawite villages, killing more than 500 innocent civilians. Western governments pretended it did not happen. Western media obliged their governments in a conspiracy of silence.

Said Mother Agnes Mariam to RT today:

[H]ow [can] the international community can ignore the brutal killing spree in Latakia on Laylat al-Qadr early in the morning of August 5, an attack that affected more than 500 people, including children, women and the elderly. They were all slaughtered. The atrocities committed exceed any scale. But there was close to nothing about it in the international mass media. There was only one small article in “The Independent”, I believe.

We sent our delegation to these villages, and our people had a look at the situation on-site, talked to the locals, and most importantly – talked to the survivors of the massacre.

I don’t understand why the Western media apply double standards in this case – they talk about mass murder that the use of chemical weapons resulted in non-stop, but they keep quiet about the Latakia massacre….

A total of twelve Alawite villages were subjected to this horrendous attack. That was a true slaughterhouse. People were mutilated and beheaded. There is even a video that shows a girl being dismembered alive – alive! – by a frame saw. The final death toll exceeded 400, with 150 to 200 people taken hostage. Later some of the hostages were killed, their deaths filmed.

Asked about the persecution of Christians in Syria, Mother Agnes Mariam was quick to point out that not only Christians, but also many Muslims are being murdered by the Western-supported insurgents in Syria. She said that the insurgents are emboldened to commit even more gruesome atrocities because they feel they have the backing of Western powers:

I would like to say that if these butchers didn’t have international support, no one would have dared to cross the line. But today, unfortunately, the violation of human rights and genocide in Syria is covered up on the international level. I demand the international community stops assessing the situation in Syria in accordance with the interests of a certain group of great powers. The Syrian people are being killed. They fall victim to contractors, who are provided with weapons and sent to Syria to kill as many people as possible. The truth is, everywhere in Syria people are being kidnapped, tortured, raped and robbed.

So while the Obama administration is obsessed with a few suspiciously timed YouTube videos that purport to show a few hundred killed in some sort of chemical attack — but even they have no proof the government was responsible — they remain criminally silent about the thousands of atrocities committed by their allies, the insurgents. Even as indisputable evidence of the insurgents’ Nazi-like violence continues to surface, the US and its tiny group of supporters (Saudi Arabia, Turkey, Israel) continues to stand by their men. Never again? Well it is happening again and no one in power seems to give a damn.

Syrian Christian woman wipes the floor with Senator John McCain at a Townhall meeting

MUST SEE! Syrian Christian woman wipes the floor with Senator John McCain at a Townhall meeting | BARE NAKED ISLAM…
http://www.barenakedislam.com/2013/09/06/must-see-syrian-christian-woman-wipes-the-floor-with-senator-john-mccain-at-a-townhall-meeting/

Okay, now the truth is out. They were beating the drums of war in our faces, in spite of the entire world being against it, and now, a Syrian-American woman who is also a Christian, has put it back in the face of the war mongers, with John McCain as their stand-in.

American interventions in the Middle East, like the lady said, has been disastrous most of all for the Christians in the region. Why is it that Christians get the worst of all the American interventions. Even Hiroshima and Nagasaki had the highest concentration of Christians in Japan at the time…

Some of the oldest continuous Christian populations in Iraq and Syria are now being ethnically cleansed.. And by the way, Muslims are being slaughtered too, not just Alawites…

The United States – Hypocrisy on Chemical Weapons

September 1, 2013
Waco: The Rules of Engagement

Waco: The Rules of Engagement (Photo credit: Wikipedia)

 

Mike Holmes remembers a time when the United States itself did what they are now condemning Syria for, in an attack that caused a great many . And the president at the time was the husband of the presumed 2016 presidential candidate Hillary Clinton.

 

The US uses gas to kill civilians:
http://www.lewrockwell.com/2013/08/mike-holmes/the-us-uses-gas-to-kill-civilians/

 

One point that needs to be made, but rarely if ever mentioned, is that in the supposed rationale for US attack on Syria to avenge/prevent claimed civilian deaths by government gas attacks, the US government itself has used similar weapons openly as recently as the FBI/ATF attack on the Branch Davidian compound near Waco Texas in the spring of 1993.

76 men, women and children died in this senseless military style assault which used highly lethal military CS gas as a primary weapon. CS is not a nerve agent and it doesn’t in normal concentrations cause immediate death. But it is highly flammable, persistent and designed to incapacitate targets by causing massive biological reactions including inability to breathe, massive tearing in the eyes, nose bleeds, etc.

The Davidians were totally surrounded, posed no threat to others, and responded with weapons fire only after the ATF/FBI attacked with military style firearms. After the initial government assault was repelled, and after a long standoff, an impatient President Clinton and his Attorney General Janet Reno ordered an all-out military assault on the compound, despite the fact that the only legal justification was a single warrant for David Koresh on unproven charges. The presence of innocent group members was ignored, nor was there any planning for medical aid or fire suppression.

The rest is history. Special military tanks were used to puncture compound walls and insert large quantities of CS gas. CS gas grenades were used from military stores along with 2 metal CS pyrotechnic M651E1 shells. Other pyrotechnic devices and flammable rounds were also fired into the buildings despite known dangers of CS gas ignition and chemical changes to the CS in fires making it even more deadly.

Wikipedia has more details. The video “Rules of Engagement” makes it clear that this was a deliberate effort to kill those inside.

Read the rest of it, and it’s worth reading:
