The great investigative journalist Seymour Hersh, has written extensively about the U.S. governments involvement in Syria and has sought to expose the corruption perpetrated by the Obama administration.
Hersh alleges that the U.S. government, including Hillary Clinton, helped approve and get Sarin nerve gas from Libya to the Syrian “rebels.”
Zero Hedge reported:
“By the terms of the agreement, funding came from Turkey, as well as Saudi Arabia and Qatar; the CIA, with the support of MI6, was responsible for getting arms from Gaddafi’s arsenals into Syria.”
However, now, for the first time, Hersh has implicated Hillary Clinton directly in this ‘rat line’. In an interview with Alternet.org, Hersh was asked about the then-US-Secretary-of-State’s role in the Benghazi Libya US consulate’s operation to collect weapons from Libyan stockpiles and send them through Turkey into Syria for a set-up sarin-gas attack, to be blamed on Assad in order to ‘justify’ the US invading Syria, as the US had invaded Libya to eliminate Gaddafi. Hersh said:
“That ambassador who was killed, he was known as a guy, from what I understand, as somebody, who would not get in the way of the CIA. As I wrote, on the day of the mission he was meeting with the CIA base chief and the shipping company. He was certainly involved, aware and witting of everything that was going on. And there’s no way somebody in that sensitive of a position is not talking to the boss, by some channel”.
Whether or not this is true has yet to be proven, but when a story like this comes from someone like Hersh, it should at least at the very minimum command the attention of the American public who should demand a thorough investigation.
