Senator Bob Casey says he has 'no doubt' on Assad's guilt in Syria

Written by The Associated Press | Aug 30, 2013 3:49 PM

(Harrisburg) -- U.S. Senator Bob Casey says he has no doubt that Syrian President Bashar Assad's government carried out a chemical weapons attack last week and that it's in the nation's security interest to respond.

In a statement today, Casey cites an intelligence briefing he received earlier in the day, as well as public remarks by President Obama and Secretary of State John Kerry.

Casey didn't say in the statement what he believes the United States' response should be.

But Casey has previously called for action in Syria to unseat Syrian President Bashar Assad's regime, notably in June after a chemical weapons attack against opposition forces.

Obama says he hasn't made a final decision about a military strike against Syria. But he says he's considering a limited and narrow action.

    Obama has been put against the wall by the Zionists to act and respond to a vile attack even though now he knows the responsible are the opposition rebels. No one would speak about it at this point and all the rest is propaganda. From here is Obama's hesitations and the reason why the UK pulled out of this War. An Anglo-Judaic group, at the head of the Secret Services in Israel, UK and USA, is single-handedly responsible for the most heinous acts of terror all over the World and will continue to use any mean to subvert the system of government in all Countries and to instigate a World War of Religion. For the most part, the circle of violence goes from the 3 Secret Services to the local secret service of the Country being targeted which will then use criminals, fanatics and extremists to execute their orders.
    Human Respect is opposite to the concept of the “chosen people” and in the name of that Machiavellian Belief all is allowed, even a surprise like 9/11.
    Welcome to the Zionist Plan for a Greater State of Israel.
    …. unless …
    from hell a young devil will put on a pair of wings and take a flight.
    From those sinister alcoves one of the secret service will have to expose the Zionists in a way even more detailed than Snowden did and tell the World what is really happening behind the farce of the media. And the World would have to learn to distinguish Jewish, American and English populations from their secret services in Israel, USA and UK.
    Then everyone will also know how to distinguish the Zionist from the Jew.

    Time for Awakening.
