When international media broke the news about a chemical weapons attack in Khan Sheikhoun, Nikki Haley was U.S. Ambassador to the United Nations.
Her immediate reaction was simultaneous fury at President Bashar Assad and the Russian delegation at the U.N.
She “knew” Assad was guilty and the Russians were protecting him by laughably blaming rebels. Nobody questioned the veracity of the gruesome images. Al Qaeda “rebels ” got the response they hoped for. Haley and President Trump were emotionally affected as they looked at the pictures together. Haley waved the images around at the emergency National Security meeting the next day while glaring at Russia’s ambassador.
Less than 48 hours after his first glimpse of the images, Trump launched 59 cruise missiles at the Syrian airbase. That same month, the U.S. held the first U.N. Security Council meeting ever devoted exclusively to human rights. Syria was the special focus. Haley brought members of the Security Council to the U.S. Holocaust Memorial Museum in Washington, DC to view an “exhibit on Assad’s systematic human rights atrocities” and his “victims. ” It is called ” Syria: please don’t forget us.” It was a message Haley wanted them to hear.
She writes that the U.S. took the initiative at the UN to fulfill America’s role as the voice of the oppressed and the persecuted.
As if the Western public hasn’t been propagandized enough, the exhibit is the epitome of the worst of the dirty lies in the dirty war against Syria.
