Intercept interview with Chomsky shows that neither can be trusted as genuine left opinion guides

P. GREANVILLE—n Intercept podcast by Jeremy Scahill (published Sept. 26) had an interesting and mighty revealing segment with Noam Chomsky, showing that neither Scahill nor his august guest—despite a respectable amount of cogent analysis—can be trusted to illumine left opinion on the great issues of the day, especially when it comes to US foreign policy, supposedly the forte of both discussants. This may sound harsh, unfair and even shocking to many on the left, as Scahill is often on target, spot on, until he goes off the rails. And then the glaring contradictions crop up.

In the Aftermath of Israeli Attack

But, while Turkey fiddles, her NATO allies are still not happy. They seek an excuse to intevene and escalate the war in Syria.

MOA—The demonstrations are similar to those staged in 2011-2013. Green-white-black French-colonial Syria flags and a few Turkish ones get waved -all new it seems- and a few dozens men and young boys, no women or girls in sight, chant some slogans. No black and white HTS/al-Qaeda flags visible and no weapons are in sight. The video shots are tightly controlled and concentrate on the civilian clothed men and children. Where a wider frame is shown one can see fighters in camouflage at the edge of the crowds. The intended message of these stunts: “Do you see us? There are only peaceful civilians in Idelb. No fighters are here. We are not terrorist. We only want freedom!”
