The reason they can't find the smoking gun is because of what's not being said about the real game plan in Libya and Syria. Namely, most of the smoking guns are ours.
It is we who are using our supposed terrorist enemies to undermine one of Iran's few allies while using our allies, the Saudis and Qataris, who have become filthy rich supplying us energy, with Israel--gang up-- on Syria before taking on Tehran. Yes, Syria is a human rights abuser but is not Al Qaeda? Why is it that the UN has only found chemical weapons in the ranks of the "rebels?"
That's the game, and yes, it is rotten, but like so much else in the shadow wars we are fighting, they can get away with it because we the people for the most part don't know about it.
And why is that?
Media "rot"--but that's another story.
