Saudis Ordered Jihadis to Attack Damascus International Airport with Obama’s Go-Ahead
A new report from the Intercept revolves around a newly released top-secret NSA document found in the files leaked by Edward Snowden that reveals, without a shadow of a doubt, that the “armed opposition in Syria was under the direct command of foreign governments from the early years of the war,” according to Zero Hedge.
The top-secret memo gives us internal confirmation of the direct role played by the US and Saudi governments relative to the fueling of an armed insurgency, which has now claimed close to half a million lives. This includes coordinated attacks of civilians, infrastructure, along with military targets in the quest for a regime change.
The NSA report is sourced from the agency’s PRISM program, a highly controversial setup that gives the NSA the ability to collect all communications and data exchanged through US internet service providers, like Google.
Below are two images from the report:
According to the document, the Free Syrian Army (FSA) was ordered to “light up Damascus” and “flatten” the Syrian capital’s international airport by Prince Salman bin Sultan – a prominent member of the Saudi royal family tasked with overseeing operations in Syria as a top Saudi intelligence officer. The document further reveals that the “Saudis sent 120 tons of explosives/weapons to opposition forces” – presumably in the lead up to the operation.
The report not only confirms that the assault happened, but that the Saudi government was “very pleased” with the outcome: “Attacks against airport, Presidential palace and other locations occurred on 18 March,” the memo reads. Also significant is that the memo confirms US intelligence foreknowledge of the attack on a major civilian airport:”Reports gave U.S. three days warning about 18 March 2013 attacks (2 year anniversary of revolution).”
