Obama Administration Caught In Another False Flag

The Obama administration accused the Syrian government of using chemical weapons on its own people ala Saddam Hussein, a so-called red line that President Obama said would warrant the United States entering yet another war in a country in which there is no plausible reason for committing U.S. troops. The UN now claims that it was the American-backed rebels, also known as Al Qaeda, which used chemical weapons. From The Hill:
United Nations human rights investigators said Sunday they have gathered testimony from outside Syria suggesting rebels, not Bashar Assad's regime, may have used chemical weapons.
“Our investigators have been in neighboring countries interviewing victims, doctors and field hospitals and, according to their report of last week which I have seen, there are strong, concrete suspicions but not yet incontrovertible proof of the use of sarin gas, from the way the victims were treated,” Carla Del Ponte, a member of the independent commission of inquiry on Syria, told Swiss-Italian television. “This was use on the part of the opposition, the rebels, not by the government authorities.” 
The allegations will likely make it harder for the Obama administration to justify taking a more active role in the two-year-old civil war on the side of the opposition. The administration has said in recent days that chemical weapons appeared to have been used in Syria, which would violate the “red line” Obama set for Assad's forces.

So much for Obama's self-government meme.
