As a member of the Senate Intelligence Committee, Sen. Dan Coats (R) has been more familiar with the CIA's covert training, arming and funding of extremist rebels for the past two years to wage a civil war in Syria that has claimed more than 100,000 lives and led to two million refugees than most members of Congress. As Americans and Hoosiers have strongly voiced their opposition to the U.S. starting yet another war in the Middle East over the past week, Sen. Coats has started changing his tune a little bit. He says that he is convinced that the chemical weapons false flag attack contrived by our own CIA to force direct U.S. military involvement in the country was really carried out by Assad, tipping his hand as to how disingenuous he really is on the issue, but he stopped short of saying he will vote to give Obama authority to take military action. Here's how the Gannett-owned disinformation newspaper reports his position:
Coats said he won’t announce how he’ll vote on giving Obama authority to respond until the president addresses the nation today. The Senate could hold a test vote as early as Wednesday.
“To refuse the commander in chief war-making authorities when he has asked for them is not a decision any of us can make lightly,” said Coats, a member of the Senate intelligence committee . . .
But Coats said Monday that the main purpose for an attack seems to be to defend Obama’s credibility for originally saying that the use of chemical weapons by Syria was a “red line” that Assad must not cross.
And if a military response doesn’t deter Assad, Coats asked, couldn’t that embolden Iran to pursue its own weapons of mass destruction?Last night, I wasted time watching a panel discussion on CNN led by the Vanderbilt trust fund baby, Anderson Cooper, who was hired by the New World Order to read fake news reports on the network. Naturally, everyone on this "expert" panel believed that Assad had used chemical weapons on his own people, except for the only journalist on the panel who had first-hand experience with the rebels. Jonathan Alpeyrie was held hostage by the terrorist rebels our CIA is directing for more than 80 days. Anderson forgot to do his homework or he would have known what Alpeyrie thought on the subject. As soon as Alpeyrie said that he believed that a faction of the rebels had carried out the chemical weapons attack because it made no sense that Assad would use them when he was winning the civil war by all accounts and cause international outrage to give President Obama an excuse for launching a war. Days earlier during an appearance on Fox News, Alpeyrie confirmed his belief that it was a false flag attack. After hearing Alpeyrie's opinion, the panel of "expert" journalists on CNN ignored him for the balance of their discussion.
UPDATE: Coats has finally come out against the Syrian resolution after Russia's Vladimir Putin struck a deal to avoid war. Coats still clings to the false notion that Assad used chemical weapons on his own people though. Here's the statement his office released late today:
UPDATE II: Now Rep. Susan Brooks has joined other members of the Republican delegation from Indiana in opposing the Syrian War resolution. It looks like Rep. Luke Messer is the lone member itching for another war.
