HOT BREAKING: Trump May Be Preparing Another Attack on Syria

The White House has just released this statement:

Office of the Press Secretary
June 26, 2017
Statement from the Press Secretary
The United States has identified potential preparations for another chemical weapons attack by the Assad regime that would likely result in the mass murder of civilians, including innocent children.  The activities are similar to preparations the regime made before its April 4, 2017 chemical weapons attack.
As we have previously stated, the United States is in Syria to eliminate the Islamic State of Iraq and Syria.  If, however, Mr. Assad conducts another mass murder attack using chemical weapons, he and his military will pay a heavy price.

HOT and now this from US Ambassador to the UN Nikki Haley:


Via Axios:

 The statement seemed to come out of nowhere — even to some in the Pentagon. Per Buzzfeed News, "Five defense officials... said they not only did not know where the potential chemical attack would come from, but they were unaware the White House was planning to release the statement."


From AP:

Several State Department officials typically involved in coordinating such announcements said they were caught completely off guard by the warning, which didn't appear to be discussed in advance with other national security agencies. Typically, the State Department, the Pentagon and U.S. intelligence agencies would all be consulted before the White House issued a declaration sure to ricochet across foreign capitals


From AP:

Less than an hour after Spicer issued the statement, Trump was back to tweeting about the 2016 campaign, denouncing investigations into potential collusion between Moscow and his campaign aides as a "Witch Hunt!"


  1. Right before Americans get their patriotic feelz up on Independence Day too.

  2. This story is not even on Infowars.com. Terrible sign.

  3. It's hardly a coincidence that this story is coming out now, because Seymour Hersh's article has come out. Now, Trump is doubling down on the lie used to justify his missile attack against Assad in April to keep the public away from what Seymour wrote. It's just a shiny, sparkly thing to distract us.

    And you'll notice, it's not hard to drive home the new lie with a complicit war mongering media. And that's because... All day long, all I've heard is the mainstream news has playing up that Assad is planning another chemical attack against the Syrian people. And all day long the mainstream news has not uttered one word about what Seymour Hersh wrote.

    It seems to me like... it's mission accomplished. I guess that's why when a politician gets caught in a lie, they just go and tell a bigger one to cover it up.
