There's also never been an explanation of why Assad's regime would have launched this attack just as UN inspectors were unpacking their bags at a Damascus hotel in preparation for checking out an earlier chemical weapons attack that the regime blamed on the rebels. The Aug. 21 incident was sure to divert the UN team and was likely to provoke a U.S. military intervention that the Assad regime wanted to avoid but that the rebels desperately desired.

Yet, the neocon editors of the Washington Post want you to forget all that and simply remember the propaganda barrage that followed the incident. What does it say about a major American newspaper that willfully seeks to mislead its readers?

The Post's neocon editors apparently have put their ideology of seeking "regime change" in "hostile" Muslim countries ahead of telling the truth to the American people. And, if the Post can get President Obama to renew his military threats against Syria, Iran and possibly other countries, eventually -- the hope seems to be -- one of the targets will fail to comply with an ultimatum and Obama can then be badgered into another war.
