Clinton Lies About Syria During Democrat Debate
During the Democrat debate on Saturday Hillary Clinton blamed Bashar al-Assad for the situation in Syria.
“I think it’s fair to say, Assad has killed, by last count, about 250,000 Syrians. The reason we are in the mess we’re in, that ISIS has the territory it has, is because of Assad,” said Clinton.
She said the rule of al-Assad “creates more terrorists, more extremists by the minute.”
Clinton’s remarks are completely at odds with reality. The terrorists and extremists in Syria are a creation of the United States, the Gulf Emirates and Turkey. The “civil war” in Syria was engineered prior to the so-called Arab Spring.
“Preparations for the ‘Arab Spring’ began not as unrest had already begun, but years before the first ‘fist’ was raised, and within seminar rooms in D.C. and New York, US-funded training facilities in Serbia, and camps held in neighboring countries, not within the Arab World itself,” writes Tony Cartalucci.
Direct evidence of these preparations surfaced in April, 2011 when the AFP ran an article detailing how State Department under Hillary Clinton sponsored “efforts to help activists in Arab and other countries gain access to technology that circumvents government firewalls, secures telephone text and voice messages, and prevents attacks on websites.”
Michael Posner, the assistant Secretary of State for human rights and labor, told reporters the United States would “basically provide both technology, training, and diplomatic support to allow people to freely express their views.”
