Mohsen Abdelmoumen: Syrian troops with the Russians are gaining ground and are winning the war. What is your reaction to this so-called chemical attack in Syria? How do you think this chemical attack occurs when the US says Assad’s departure is no longer a priority?
Robert D. Steele: The attack was a false flag attack intended to deceive President Donald Trump and his closest advisors.
You gave me information about the involvement of the General McMaster, the former CIA chief John Brennan and the Senator John McCain. What was their role in this chemical attack in Syria? Do you think that these individuals must be brought before a court for high treason? Was the current CIA director Mike Pompeo aware of this chemical attack?
There are conflicting stories about the actual chemical attack — the Russians and Syrians are saying that a rebel stock was hit and that unleashed a cloud of chemicals. In the US our inside source are saying the White Helmets were paid to create a false flag chemical attack. I absolutely believe that Senator McCain should be impeached; John Brennan should be indicted, and General McMaster should be court-martialed.
About the US strike, how did it come about 24 hours after Hillary Clinton said she wanted an intervention in Syria? What is your analysis of this strike?
The Russian battle damage assessment video is online and documents 23 out of 59 missiles hitting the air base. That is a 39% combat effectiveness ratio, so I think the US Government should pay Raytheon 39% of list price in the future. The strike may have been high theater — certainly the Russians and Syrians were told in advance, and they also turned off their anti-missile defense systems. The strike was unconstitutional and a mistake by our president based on bad information.
Some of our sources have told us that Daesh, after the blows it has suffered in Syria and Iraq, will redeploy in Africa and Europe. Do you have any information on that?
I have no information on this but I believe that Angela Merkel among others wants Europe threatened by refugees and if she cannot attract enough terrorists with war on the Middle East she and the remnants of the Gestapo that still work for her will create more false flag attacks across Europe.
In your opinion, isn’t President Donald Trump hostage of the Deep State, the neocons and the military-industrial complex?
Yes in general terms, because he is not challenging them where they are weakest. Our president is gifted at mobilizing the public, he has failed to heed the advice of Cynthia McKinney and myself, among others, to sponsor the Electoral Reform Act and mobilize the larger public against the Deep State. He has to beat the Deep State, but only if he creates a diversified base. He is also in the process of losing the Alt-Right, we are all furious about this attack which is a direct violation of his promise to put America First and not be further engaged in foreign conflicts.
Why did President Trump choose when he received Chinese President Xi Jinping to order the strike?
Some clever person thought it would be cool. Childish games, as with the air craft carrier going toward North Korea. North Korea is not our problem; it should be the common problem of China, Viet-Nam, and Japan. We should close our bases in South Korea and withdraw all our forces from South Korea and Japan.
You are a former of CIA and you are very well informed, how do you explain that the American aircraft-carrier Carl Vinson accompanied with a fleet goes to the Korean peninsula? Don’t you think the next target is North Korea?
Our President is suffering from a massive overload of bad information and bad influence. He has no grand strategy. He has no one working for him capable of devising a grand strategy.
What is the role of Israel and the Zionist lobby in what is currently being developed?
The Zionists are absolutely behind this, along with their close partners in Saudi Arabia and Qatar. It is important to note that there are only nine million Jews in the USA, all generally loyal to the USA. The influence of Israel in the USA is based on bribery and blackmail (such as developed by Mossad agents Jeffrey Epstein and Ghislaine Maxwell, with their pedophilia networks and video-taping of everyone they can entice to Lolita Island in the Caribbean and to their no-name hotel in New York City.
It was hoped to avoid a total war between the US, Russia and China with Clinton’s defeat in the presidential elections. Do you think we will avoid this war with President Trump?
I do think we will avoid war, in part because the leaders of Russia and Iran will show restraint. They understand full well that our president is surrounded by traitors. There may be a Wednesday night massacre this week, if Preibus and McMaster are fired and if Jared Kushner and Ivanka Trump are removed from the White House, I will hope for the best. If not, there is already a strong mood within the Trump base toward abandoning him and establishing a new political movement (not a party) that seeks to achieve electoral reform for 2018 and the election of a true Independent in 2020.
President Trump has accomplished many important things in his first 100 days, including the cancellation of the Transpacific Partnership (a fascist treaty), job creation, business outreach, and the confirmation of a Supreme Court judge. What he has not done is established a unification of all Americans — he has continued to ignore people of color, Latinos, single mothers, students in debt, and the elderly going bankrupt from medical charges that are predatory.
