In the West, it’s an amusing meme people will repeat whether they think it’s true or not. Bashar al-Assad is obviously taking it very seriously.
Speaking of — can someone please explain to the humorless slobs in the media how memes and jokes are supposed to work? They’re taking things WAY too seriously. (Even though we do concede thare there are a helluva lot of weird, unanswered questions clouding Epstein’s death.)
So it looks like the Epstein Didn’t Kill Himself meme has gone global and now the guy who gassed his own people has something to say about what ‘connects’ the deaths of Epstein, Osama Bin Laden and Al-Baghdadi.
Speaking to Russia’s state-run Rossiya-24 station Thursday, Assad commented on the death of Syria Civil Defense co-founder James Le Mesurier, who died Monday after an apparent fall from his Istanbul apartment. Assad and his supporters have repeatedly alleged that Le Mesurier’s organization, commonly known as the White Helmets, were not a rescue group but militant operatives working on behalf of his foes, including the United States and the United Kingdom, which he speculated—without providing evidence—may have been behind a spat of apparent assassinations.
“American billionaire Jeffrey Epstein was killed several weeks ago, they said he had committed suicide in jail. However, he was killed because he knew a lot of vital secrets connected with very important people in the British and American regimes, and possibly in other countries as well,” Assad told the outlet, as translated by the state-run Tass Russian News Agency.
“And now the main founder of the White Helmets has been killed, he was an officer and he had worked his whole life with NATO in Afghanistan, Kosovo, Iraq and Lebanon,” he added. “Both of us know that they [representatives of the White Helmets] are naturally part of Al-Qaeda. I believe that these people, as well as the previously liquidated [Osama] bin Laden and [ISIS leader Abu Bakr] al-Baghdadi had been killed chiefly because they knew major secrets. They turned into a burden once they had played out their roles. A dire need to do away with them surfaced after they had fulfilled their roles.”
American forces killed OBL and they killed al-Baghdadi.
Are we seriously to believe Americans KNEW where they were hiding and were content to leave them alone … ‘fulfilling their roles’ … until we were afraid their ‘secrets’ would become a treat?
OBL bragged about his role in changing the skyline in New York and killing thousands of Americans. Al-Baghdadi killed and raped his way across the middle east, destroying lives wherever he went. One of the few things that Left and Right can still agree on is that he was a rabid dog that needed to be dragged behind the barn and put down.
But it was ‘their secrets’ that ‘powerful people’ were afraid of.
You’ve gassed your own people, Assad.
Sit this one out.
