John Kerry Gets His Information About Syria From . . . YouTube Videos

In his public statement on Syria yesterday, Secretary of State John Kerry cited online videos as evidence for his version of events in Syria.

Is he watching the same videos that we are? The ones that show fanatics and lunatics in the FSA eating human organs, and Al-Qaeda terrorists executing Syrian teenagers?

Why does America even need an intelligence agency if its head of state and secretary of state make military decisions based on YouTube videos and social media accounts? Are they serious?

It is clear that Washington has renounced intelligence and embraced irrationality and emotionalism. Instead of military and intelligence analysts, psychological experts and priests are running the place.

We are seeing a breakdown of intelligence in Washington, from the nervous system in the machinery of government right up to the brain. The mouth of the state is blathering nonsense and lies. The pulse in the heart is not registering.

The entire body politic in Washington is disconnected from reality, from truth, from the opinions of its own citizens, from God, from justice, from everything good and wholesome in this universe.

Washington has fully embraced its role as the villain of the universe. It has not only went over to the dark side, but it has went beyond it, to the point where the dark side is saying, "whoa, slow down there young America, don't hurt yourself, come back to reality, come back to sanity, come back to logic, come back to truth."

It's like America has a disease and there is nothing one can do but to let the disease run its course and hope it doesn't completely kill the patient. At the end of the day, this isn't all about Syria or Iran or Israel. The U.S. political elite needs a giant distraction in the form of a third world war because the U.S. economy is not recovering. War is the only answer. Any excuse will do. And Assad won't be the only victim.

Below is an excerpt from, "John Kerry's statement on Syria – full transcript" (The Guardian, August 26):
Last night after speaking with foreign ministers from around the world about the gravity of this situation, I went back and I watched the videos, the videos that anybody can watch in the social media, and I watched them one more gut-wrenching time. It is really hard to express in words the human suffering that they lay out before us. As a father, I can't get the image out of my head of a man who held up his dead child, wailing while chaos swirled around him; the images of entire families dead in their beds without a drop of blood or even a visible wound; bodies contorting in spasms; human suffering that we can never ignore or forget. Anyone who can claim that an attack of this staggering scale could be contrived or fabricated needs to check their conscience and their own moral compass.

What is before us today is real, and it is compelling. So I also want to underscore that while investigators are gathering additional evidence on the ground, our understanding of what has already happened in Syria is grounded in facts informed by conscience and guided by common sense. The reported number of victims, the reported symptoms of those who were killed or injured, the firsthand accounts from humanitarian organizations on the ground like Doctors Without Borders and the Syria Human Rights Commission – these all strongly indicate that everything these images are already screaming at us is real, that chemical weapons were used in Syria.
