Minister Louis Farrakhan, the national leader of the Nation of Islam, addressed “America’s Errant Foreign Policy” in the 34th installment of his weekly YouTube address, “The Time and What Must Be Done,” specifically challenging the Obama administration’s call for military intervention in Syria.
“Based on America’s history of false flag operations, great doubt exists as to the truth of whether the Syrian government is in fact responsible for the use of chemical weapons or is America responsible through the use of her proxies,” the fiery NOI leader questioned.
“What would Syria have to gain by using chemical weapons to cause America to intervene militarily in her country as she is experiencing this terrible civil war? I think it is America and Europe that are tired of the civil war going on so long without definitive results in the favor of the West and Israel.”

As previously reported by NewsOne, during a brief statement from the White House Rose Garden on Saturday, President Barack Obama said “the country will be stronger” if we strike Syria in response to Syrian President Bashar al-Assad’s alleged use of chemical weapons on his own people.
Obama said previously that such an attack was the “red line” that would prompt the United States to act and Congress is prepared to take up an authorization measure when they return from August recess.
Despite public concern that he would circumvent Congress, the POTUS is going through the proper channels and claims that the strike is not “time sensitive.”
The White House released an intelligence assessment Friday which concluded that the Syrian government used nerve gas to kill more than 1,400 people, including at least 426 children, far more than previous estimates of approximately 1,300 Syrians.
President Obama called the heinous attack an “assault on human dignity.”
Assad maintains that the Syrian government is not responsible for the attack and promises that the country “will defend itself” against US aggression.
