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.
