The encrypted directive was intercepted by this BLOG using Edward Snowden software "pass-key" and the message concerned a gas attack designed to frame President Assad as the perpetrator of yet another gas attack.
Naturally...Secretary of Defense Jim Mattis was informed of the RUSE...and...such is "why" when asked if SYRIAN PRESIDENT ASSAD had directed the chlorine gas attack in Duoma...he replied, "I cannot say it was Syria...it's not yet been shown." Mattis worded his reply in a fashion intended to say THANK YOU to this BLOG for the effort of its WAR DEPT. to help stop* another
"dirty little war".
