He said that CIA and MI6 “special forces” are present in Syria, abetting rebel armed groups, Press TV reported.
“They go after pro-Assad loyalists,” Lendman told the channel in an interview. “There is no question this is a Washington-orchestrated war.”
He said: “It is a low-level war to the extent that NATO has not gotten directly involved. But it is exactly what happened in Libya last year. An insurgency began. Washington orchestrated it. Insurgents were recruited. They were funded. They were armed.”
Lendman, writer and radio host from Chicago, stated that Syria has been “targeted for regime change for years, at least a decade.”
About Kofi Annan’s peace plan, he said: “His so-called peace plan puts the onus on a side. He barely mentions these insurgents, these death squads, these killers.
“I have written about Kofi Annan. I have written several times about him. During his tenure as UN secretary general, a decade, a solid decade, he never did a thing to stop imperial wars.”
