The definition of 'False Flag' operation is as follows: "False flag operations are covert operations designed to deceive the public in such a way that the operations appear as though they are being carried out by other entities."
The following is a short list of people who have voiced their suspicion that the recent chemical weapons attacks in Syria were staged by the opposition forces in order to gain even further US military action against the Syrian Government:
-Archbishop Gregorios III, Archbishop of Damascus and Patriarch of 1.6 million Byzantine Rite Catholics
-Carla del Ponte, a member of the U.N. Independent International Commission of
Inquiry on Syria.
-Rolf Ekeus, former UN weapons inspector and Swedish diplomat
-Col. Lawrence Wilkerson, chief of Staff for Sec. of State Colin Powell (2001-2005)
Yossef Bodansky, former Director of the Congressional Task Force on Terrorism and Unconventional Warfare (1988 to 2004).
-Sen. Rand Paul
-Rep. Alan Grayson
-George Galloway MP, member of the British Parliament
-Former Congressman Dennis Kucinich
-Former Congressman Ron Paul
-Wikileaks founder Julian Assange
-Craig Murray, former UK ambassador to Uzbekistan and a whistleblower regarding UK and US policy of sending prisoners for torture in countries including Uzbekistan.
-Political commentator Pat Buchanan
-Dr. Paul Craig Roberts, former associate editor of The Wall Street Journal and former Assistant Secretary of The Treasury in Reagan Administration
-Even a semi-complete list of professional independent journalists who voice this suspicion would add many pages to this article, but just to name a few more:
--Stephen Lendman, award winning journalist and 'Progressive Radio News Hour' host
-Patrick Cockburn, award winning journalist for Financial Times and The Independent'
-Yahya Ababneh, frequently featured in major Middle Eastern publications
-Jeffrey K. Silverman, Caucasus region specialist, editor Georgian Times
The list above could be expanded but the point is been made, the suspicion of false flag operations in Syria is mainstream opinion.
Really, it seems that very few people outside of the dinosaur mainstream media and the Washington warmonger coalition have any trouble wrapping their minds around the obvious fact that it is the opposition combatants in Syria and their international backers who have total incentive to launch or stage a chemical weapons attack for the purpose blaming the Assad government. After all, as made perfectly clear in multiple 'red line' statements by President Obama, evidence of chemical weapons use is the one thing that would result in direct missile strikes against the Assad government.
