        In this era in which we have had hearings in Congress and investigations by the GAO about corruption on the part of U.S. contractors and occupied government officials, the likelihood is strong that persons we have inside governments like Syria's are acting on behalf of the military industrial complex, not on behalf of the American people.

        The fact that Syria has chemical weapons and that we have done nothing to prevent or to destroy that capability tells us that whatever sources we have in Syria are only there to describe what's going on, not to prevent the catastrophe that is erupting as a result of the infusion of weapons, missiles, explosives, and toxins into an already volatile social crisis.
