Skip to comments.Rep. Alan Grayson: Syria Intelligence Manipulated
Posted on 09/05/2013 5:37:12 PM PDT by don-o
Rep. Alan Grayson, D-Fla., who is aggressively lobbying against a military strike on Syria, says the Obama administration has manipulated intelligence to push its case for U.S. involvement in the country's two-year civil war.
Grayson made the accusation in an interview published Wednesday by The Atlantic and offered more detail in a Thursday discussion with U.S. News. He says members of Congress are being given intelligence briefings without any evidence to support administration claims that Syrian leader Bashar Assad ordered the use of chemical weapons.
He points to an article published by The Daily Caller that alleges the communications actually showed Syrian officers were surprised by the alleged chemical weapon attack. The communications, according to unnamed sources paraphrased in article, were intercepted by Israeli intelligence and "doctored so that it leads a reader to just the opposite conclusion."
"What they say in The Daily Caller is that [intercepted communications] would lead one to the opposite conclusion," Grayson said. "I don't know if it's right or wrong, [but] there's a very simple way to find out, that's for the administration to show me and other members of Congress" translated transcripts of the intercepts, he said.

I could kick Obama’s ass for making me agree with Alan Grayson.
Even disgusting moonbats are sometimes correct.
Lots of that going around.
Even Ed Schultz was grinding Obama on Syria yesterday.When Obama loses a guy like Ed,it’s time for him to pack it up.
This is what we are talking about!! Not only is there a lie on who did this but there are reports that we KNEW that this would happen and did nothing!! That we had meeting in Turkey with the terrorists and gave them “TONS “ of arms to use after a “game changing event. THESE MEETINGS WERE IN AUGUST BEFORE THE GASSING !! Did we know that the Al Qaeda was going to drop the gas?? Did we know that?
Hell must be freezing over when Alan Grayson makes sense..the electro shock therapy the looney bin is giving him must be working
He wants that pension bad
Bullshit. Like the Israelis woild want to depose Assad and install a radical Muslim
This issue may gain ground within the Senate. The House is going to tell the Kenyan to take a hike as it now stands.
I’m saying the intel was doctored but not by israel
whooda thunk obama could get me to side wirh grayson, code pink and kucinich. the world is truly upside down.
He ought to know. Grayson would be an expert on intelligence manipulation.
If Greyson is freaking out, I can only imagine what is going on in the Senate Cloak Room. I sense these morons for this nonsense will be running for the tall grass, squealing like pigs very soon.
I bet every moron Senator for this nonsense is praying a filibuster happens.
“I could kick Obamas ass for making me agree with Alan Grayson”
Very good, I agree, lol
I’ll add to the LOLZ
The birth certificate, the shady past... the chickens really are coming home to roost, but perhaps not quite the way the Reverend Wright meant.
I’m more and more convinced this entire Syrian affair is pre-planned.
It is an effort to strengthen the jihadists.
-——I could kick Obamas ass for making me agree with Alan Grayson.——
Think of it in terms of Alan Grayson agreeing with you....!
Obama did say he’d unite the nation
Blind squirrel, stopped clock, etc., etc....
Damn, I hate that I’m actually agreeing with this raving moonbat on something!
I would not argue against that, there's too much evidence that supports it.
Sure is beginning to look that way. Conspiracy to commit treason at the highest levels of government. Obama, Hillary, Kerry, and their plants in all national intelligence/security agencies, et al, are all in it to their ear bones. Benghazi was no accident. Praying our professional military brass is not playing along.
Post of the day. I feel dirty these days, thanks to the girly man..
I agree with him in not backing this disaster but his way of getting there is a little questionable.
“He who exalts himself will be humbled.” Our current President and his enablers did everything in their power to wheedle and put him forward as a Messiah. They are about to experience a serious humbling.
If this is what I think it is, it is Tonkin Gulf II. No less than.
This is what gives me the most trouble getting my head around. Some say that any who rise to the heights had to sell their souls, and they will somehow rationalize violating the oath.
I'm not quite that cynical (yet).
I'll pray for courage to refuse to obey illegal orders, which are pretty likely to be issued.
Rep. Alan Grayson, D-Fla., who is aggressively lobbying against a military strike on Syria, says the Obama administration has manipulated intelligence to push its case for U.S. involvement in the country's two-year civil war... He says members of Congress are being given intelligence briefings without any evidence to support administration claims that Syrian leader Bashar Assad ordered the use of chemical weapons.And what's *his* FR nick?
“I could kick Obamas ass for making me agree with Alan Grayson.”
I was thinking the same thing. there has been so many scandals lately I can’t even remember what lie it was he was involved in but I remember having a real hard time just looking at a picture of his face.
God help me, I was actually impressed with his questions yesterday.
Sad that the libs have more sense than Bohner on this.
The combination of tech possessed by NRO/NSA could make it easy to send false radio data from anywhere.
Here is what I would do if I had the resources...
It would be no problem to drop a tiny software-defined-radio somewhere in Damascus and have a language expert in Langley send down any conversation they wanted the Israeli monitors on Mt Hermon to hear. (The Israelis must be monitoring from Mt Hermon as it’s the logical choice)
The signal would go out locally on normal frequencies used by Syrian officials. The SDR could be planted in Damascus by a method as simple as placing it inside some common object and simply mailing it to someone. This is a technique also useful for monitoring radio traffic in an area that cannot be picked up by an NRO sat directly because the frequency is too noisy from other sources. The SDR picks up the traffic and relays to the sat.
It reads like a cheap spy novel I know but this stuff is actually possible.
I share your sentiment. However, you and I both have more reasons than this to kick O’s ass.
BRITAIN allowed firms to sell chemicals to Syria...the UK Government has been allowing the sale of these ingredients to Syria...The chemical export licences...were only revoked six months later, when the European Union imposed tough sanctions on Assads regime...The Government...granting licences to companies to export to regimes such as Syria.
I think the still active duty “brass” have already abdicated their leadership roles, given the past few years of evidence.
But I am exactly that level of cynical, probably more than you can imagine.
Scouts Out! Cavalry Ho!
Grayson? That guy in Florida who’s nuts?
Wow. This can’t be the same Grayson. This Grayson sounds honest and intelligent.
pentagon = pentagram
no coinky dink
Did you know that the groundbreaking for the pentagon was September 11th 1940something?
Who would have ever thought that Grayson could be talking sense.
What’s the temperature in Hell?
I feel extremely ill! Agreeing with that Pr!ck on anything is very disturbing.
