UN Inspectors Gas Attack Report: A Manipulated Fraud

UN Inspectors Gas Attack Report: A Manipulated Fraud by Stephen Lendman A separate article explained. Crime scene evidence was manipulated. Doing so made it worthless.

Obama’s War Plans on Syria Unchanged

Obama's War Plans on Syria Unchanged by Stephen Lendman Longstanding US regime change plans remain firm. Previous articles explained.  Washington targets all independent governments.
