Escobar: Obama Wants to Take Credit for Syria Chem Weapons Plan


Officials from countries on the UN Security Council are meeting for consultations, ahead of the main debate in New York. World leaders have applauded the Syrian chemical disarmament deal, agreed on by Russia and the US. But investigative journalist Pepe Escobar says Washington's now trying to twist the narrative in its favour.



Escobar sums up the political situation in Syria and warns about further false falg attacks during the period of chemical weapons inspections. This 'peace process' is likely to hit a number of very steep speed humps.

As things stand the US-backed rebels with their al Qaeda allies should NOT be supported. It would be better overall if Assad's Government prevailed.
