TEHRAN (Tasnim) - A US counter-terrorism analyst said the American Deep State and UK's MI6 spy agency should be blamed for the recent US-led strike against Syria, stressing that President Donald Trump is "under siege and surrounded by liars giving him false intelligence to fit their war agenda".
"First of all President Trump seems to be surrounded by liars who are providing him with false intelligence, manipulating data, and essentially deceiving him to advance a political agenda that includes the continued deconstruction of the Middle East regimes targeted by the Israeli-Zionist and Neoconservative war-mongers...," Scott Bennett, from San Francisco, told the Tasnim News Agency.
He added, "...due to the fact that there are constant attacks from the US Bureaucracy, Military-Industrial complex, and DEEP STATE against Trump as being a "Russian sympathizer" and insinuations of Trump "colluding with Russia" to influence the election of the American Presidency in 2016, Trump may be feeling compelled to distract America's attention by launching this attack against Syria, and ignoring all of the common sense, scientific facts and testimony which contradict the claim of a chemical attack happening in Syria at all...".
"There is additional evidence showing that 1) the chemical action was staged by British Special Ops; 2) the action was funded by Open Society; 3) the gas was supplied by Merck and delivered by an MI6 op. This was kept from Trump.'

The following is the full text of the interview.
Tasnim: Multiple places in Syria came under attack by US, British and French military forces after President Donald Trump ordered a military strike against the war-torn country early on Saturday. What is your take on the attack?
Bennet: There are two critical aspects behind this attack that need to be understood to explain why it happened, and what may come next.
First of all President Trump seems to be surrounded by liars who are providing him with false intelligence, manipulating data, and essentially deceiving him to advance a political agenda that includes the continued deconstruction of the Middle East regimes targeted by the Israeli-Zionist and Neoconservative war-mongers. These fanatical liars include John Bolton, the National Security Advisor who was a key figure in the invasion of Iraq and 18 years of continual war and who has an obsession with full-spectrum dominance and unchallenged US control over the entire world; Nikki Haley, the US representative at the United Nations, who has been constantly slandering Russia with false claims of chemical warfare in the United Kingdom and now Syria, and threatening to "slap" Russia, and whose husband is an Air Force General and committed to war as a means to a paycheck; and numerous people in the media like Sean Hannity and Sebastian Gorka who are viciously anti-Russian orthodox Christian due to their Zionist and Catholic prejudices. This is important to understand since it explains all of the "noise" that may be smothering any voices of peace, reason, reflection, or honest analysis of the Syria-Russian-Iran situation.
Secondly, due to the fact that there are constant attacks from the US Bureaucracy, Military-Industrial complex, and DEEP STATE against Trump as being a "Russian sympathizer" and insinuations of Trump "colluding with Russia" to influence the election of the American Presidency in 2016, Trump may be feeling compelled to distract America's attention by launching this attack against Syria, and ignoring all of the common sense, scientific facts and testimony which contradict the claim of a chemical attack happening in Syria at all. Another reason for why Trump may have launched this attack to distract attention away from his domestic policy is because this week Trump's personal attorney Michael Cohen had his office raided by Special Counsel Robert Mueller who is investigating Trump and has already criminally charged Trump's associates Paul Manaforte and former National Security Advisor Michael Flynn. The reason why Michael Cohen had his office raided was because he had received materials disclosing the financing of terrorism involving Saudi Arabia, Union Bank of Switzerland, defense contractor Booz Allen Hamilton, the Clinton Foundation, the US State Department, and the Department of Justice during the Obama Administration, and that this financing was used to fund operations in Syria and Libya. Videos of the recordings of Michael Cohen's involvement in this, was the reason for his targeting and investigation. This will be emerging in the coming weeks. I know this because I was personally involved in these operations involving Michael Cohen, and spoke with him personally in 2015 and 2016-and have the videos to prove it. More of this will follow in another article.
Tasnim: "It is Congress, not the president, which has the constitutional responsibility for making war. The international community must uphold the prohibition against the use of chemical weapons, but it is unclear how Trump's illegal and unauthorized strikes on Syria achieve that goal," Bernie Sanders Retweeted the New York Times. What is your perspective on this?
Bennet: The Congress of the United States is the only body of the American government empowered to declare war, not the President or any military commander. The reason for this is to protect the people of the United States from a bloodthirsty President or madmen in the military who see war as a "money-making, career-building" exercise and profession, instead of a last resort to defend one's country, family, and life. Unfortunately the United States, after the false flag attack of September 11, 2001, created the "Patriot Act" and the "Authorization for Military Force", which was a way to get around this Constitutional law requiring Congress to declare war-and the world has been suffering ever since. If President Trump doesn't immediately change his course and stop this illegal war, he very well could find himself impeached, prosecuted as a war criminal, and end up as another failed one-term President with a legacy of a failed war that resulted in the greatest fall from grace America has ever suffered.
Tasnim: How do you see the role of Saudi Crown Prince Mohammad bin Salman in the attack?
Bennet: The Saudi Crown Prince Mohammad bin Salman will applaud this missile attack and seek to exploit the event by sending in more Wahhabi mercenaries and money and weapons to try and topple the Assad regime, and stop the victories of Russia and Iran and Syria. We will most likely see the Israeli-Saudi alliance unifying under the banner of this US-UK-France coalition, which will embolden attacks against Lebanon and Syria by Israel and Saudi Arabia. It will also result in increases in violence against Yemen by Saudi Arabia, in order to use this Syria attack as "cover".
Tasnim: Certainly, the attack was a flagrant violation of international law. How much respect do you think Trump and his allies have for the international law?
Bennet: The legal reality is, this act of war declaration by a President is illegal, unconstitutional, and an international war crime. Russian-Iran-China should introduce a Security Council resolution to accomplish the following: 1) file a war crimes violation act against the United States, Britain, France for initiating this action, with specific request for the US to be held to account for leading this attack. 2) Immediately set out to create an alternative to the UN for nations seeking 'stability, peace, and prosperity' in the world, rather than US Full-Spectrum Dominance; 3) Demand a summit between the leaders of China, Russia, Iran, and Syria, with the US in Reykjavik , Iceland, and use the historical significance of the Reagan-Gorbechev meeting to end the "Cold War" and achieve peace, to achieve the same now and stop the globalist interventionist war-mongering policies infecting the West.
Trump said the purpose of his actions was to stop the production, spread, and use of chemical weapons, and "atrocities". He said, military, economic, and diplomatic elements of national power will be used against Syria-Russia-Iran, which means a dramatic increase in propaganda will be following this attack in the media, in financial sanctions, at the United Nations, and in the use of secret black operations and false-flag attacks. Most likely you will see Israel's Mossad engage in attacks in Europe and blame it on Muslims, claiming Muslims are outraged and standing up against the US attacks against Syria. This will prompt the European and US police and military to further crack-down on the civilian population and restrict information.
The truth is as follows: 1) no chemical attack was executed by Syrian President Assad, but most likely was performed by DAESH/ISIS Israeli-Saudi mercenaries as a 'false flag' against Syria. This is apparent from the earlier intelligence of 40 tons of chlorine being found in Gouta a few weeks ago, which indicated the rebels/terrorists were planning such an attack; 2) the Israeli air strike would have been coordinated with US intelligence; 3) the air strike was a declaration of War upon Syria by Israel, and legally is a war crime and should be prosecuted as such; 4) the goading of President Trump to bomb Syria by the Israelis is an attempt to manipulate Americans using 'Christian Zionism impulses' into committing to fight another Iraq war using American lives, in an illegal war Congress has not declared, and could also be used to create a political trap to impeach Trump; 5) Democrats are pushing Trump to continue 'regime change' in Syria, along with Lindsay 'man-boy love' Graham, in order to abandon the 'border wall' focus--which frees up democrats to continue their invasion and attempt to redefine the American voter population through illegal laws in CA; 6) War in Syria will result in Russia-Iran countering using military means, which will open the door for America to expand a larger conflict in Ukraine and Iran; 7) Russian countermeasures will trigger more sanctions and attempt to unify NATO into a larger posture of hostility against Russia.
What the major miscalculation will be is that when the needle goes from 'yellow to red', and DefCon 2 goes to 1, at that moment Russia will follow its instincts developed from hundreds of years of enduring Napoleon, the Kaiser, Hitler, and the West, and 'pull the visor down' and lunge forward with a ferocity Americans have never experienced, using weaponry American defenses cannot defeat. This, of course, will result in devastating military losses (Navy ships, aircraft), and mobilize China and Iran to liberate Syria and contain Israel, and hopefully capture Netanyahu and prosecute him for starting a war....ending him like Hitler, ironically enough. If Trump is not careful, the very same may apply to him. Time will tell.
There is additional evidence showing that 1) the chemical action was staged by British Special Ops; 2) the action was funded by Open Society; 3) the gas was supplied by Merck and delivered by an MI6 op. This was kept from Trump.'
