LAURA KNIGHT-JADCZYK AND JOE QUINN
Since the 9/11 attacks, no book has provided a satisfactory answer as to WHY the attacks occurred and who was ultimately responsible for carrying them out - until now.
Syrian President Bashar al-Assad has most certainly not asked for U.S. 'help' bombing Syria. Any U.S. actions there will not only be unwanted, they'll be blatantly illegal, like the vast majority of 'help' the U.S. offers countries, i.e. bombs, murder and chaos. Speaking of which, who invaded Saddam's Iraq? Were Iraqis begging to be bombed back to the Stone Age when the U.S. 'shocked and awed' the people of Iraq, leading to hundreds of thousands of deaths? Recall that other classic idiotic remark from Kerry in an interview with NBC's Meet the Press on March 2nd of this year: "You just don't invade another country on phony pretext in order to assert your interests." Right. Look in the mirror.U.S. Puppet Masters ask new Iraqi PM to ask the U.S. to bomb Iraq so the U.S. can bomb Syria
Senator John McCain was one of the earliest advocates of American military action against the Islamic State in Iraq and Syria. So it has been vexing for Mr. McCain to be battling persistent - and false - Internet rumors that he not only helped invent the group but also knows its leader, Abu Bakr al-Baghdadi, the self-proclaimed caliph of the Muslim world and America's latest Public Enemy No. 1.
The rumors are based partly on images of a Syrian fighter who resembles Mr. Baghdadi, seen in photographs with Mr. McCain - some originally posted on Twitter by the senator - during his visit in May 2013 to northern Syria. He met members of the Free Syrian Army, an insurgent group that opposes ISIS and that President Obama, in a speech Wednesday on his new strategy for battling ISIS, has vowed to strengthen.
Nurtured by conspiracy blogposts, social media and photo-altering tricks, the false rumors of Mr. McCain's relationship with ISIS have taken on a life of their own.
