A former British ambassador to Uzbekistan says the U.S. government has been deceived by the Israeli regime through fabricated evidence into believing that the Syrian government forces used chemical weapons in an attack on the suburbs of Damascus on August 21.
Craig John Murray, now a political activist, has written in his official website that U.S. Secretary of State John Kerry™s claims about having access to communication intercepts of Syrian military and officials organizing chemical weapons attacks are sheer lies.
Murray says the British intelligence has no idea of such radio and communication intercepts between the Syrians despite having the most modern and advanced electronic tapping post on the Mountainous Troodos region of Cyprus. The tapping post monitors all radio, satellite and microwave traffic across the Middle East, he says.
According to Murray, œThe GCHQ listening post on Mount Troodos in Cyprus is arguably the most valued asset which the UK contributes to UK/US intelligence cooperation. The communications intercept agencies, GCHQ in the UK and NSA in the US, share all their intelligence reports (as do the CIA and MI6). Troodos is valued enormously by the NSA. It monitors all radio, satellite and microwave traffic across the Middle East, ranging from Egypt and Eastern Libya right through to the Caucasus. Even almost all landline telephone communication in this region is routed through microwave links at some stage, picked up on Troodos”.
This is while that, as Murray states, the U.S. does not have its own comparable facility for the Middle East.
œTroodos is highly effective – the jewel in the crown of British intelligence. Its capacity and efficiency, as well as its reach, is staggering. I should state that I have actually been inside all of this facility and been fully briefed on its operations and capabilities, while I was head of the FCO Cyprus Section in the early 1990s. This is fact, not speculation”, wrote Murray in a web post.
Murray disputes John Kerry™s allegations saying that œIt is therefore very strange, to say the least, that John Kerry claims to have access to communications intercepts of Syrian military and officials organising chemical weapons attacks, which intercepts were not available to the British Joint Intelligence Committee”.
The intercept evidence provided to the U.S. government has been prepared by the Israeli regime™s spying apparatus Mossad, Murray explains, adding that Mossad have nothing comparable to the UK™s Troodos facility in Cyprus.
Now the question is: œHow can Troodos have missed this (communication intercepts between the Syrians) if Mossad got it?”
The Israeli regime has been responsible for several illegal bombings and missile strikes in Syria, which have killed hundreds if not thousands of civilians, including women and children. The regime™s direct involvement in the Syrian civil war has not received just one case of condemnation from the West. Subsequent to its involvement, it has also fabricated œintelligence” and provided the U.S. with the fabrications to spark the U.S. military™s invasion of the Arab country.
œThe answer to the Troodos Conundrum is simple. Troodos did not pick up the intercepts because they do not exist. Mossad fabricated them. John Kerry™s œevidence” is the shabbiest of tricks”, Murray concludes.
Meanwhile, the Nobel Peace Prize laureate Mairead Maguire in a video interview posted on the web spoke of her personal visit to Syria, where she says people organized and supported by Washington are violent groups, which have no mercy for the innocents and are not after peace in Syria.
Mairead Maguire believes that Syria is being used as a proxy war by Britain, the U.S. and their regional allies both totalitarian dictatorships of Saudi Arabia and Qatar.
œBoth Arab regimes in Qatar and Saudi Arabia will pay for a possible US-led military invasion of Syria with their petrodollars. The two do not only meddle in the internal affairs of Syria and in the conflict in the Arab country, but they are also responsible for a lot of violence and bloodshed that has taken place and is still happening in Syria since [more than] two years”, Mairead states.
