CNN-Sandy was created by Iranian/Syrian technology

Hours after Superstorm Sandy howled its way through the East Coast this week, unleashing a fatal trail of destruction, global reactions included outpouring of sympathy and support.

But not in Syria, where pro-government supporters welcomed the superstorm when it hit Monday, claiming the natural disaster is the result of high-tech secret engineering.
"Sources confirmed to us that Hurricane Sandy that is slamming the U.S. was set off by highly advanced technologies developed by the heroic Iranian regime that supports the resistance, with coordination of our resistive Syrian regime," pro-government group News Network of the Syrian Armed Forces said in a Facebook posting.


"This is the punishment for whoever dares to attack Syria's (Bashar) al-Assad and threaten peace and stability."

Despite the self-applause, some were not buying it.

House Republicans will be holding a hearing on this this week headed by their top scientists.

2. I can reveal what the Iranian and Syrian technology was that created the storm.

 

The extraction of oil. At least that might be what they are referring to.

3. You mean this ISN'T from The Onion...?

Nonetheless, I'll bet some wingnuts will now claim that Obama is in cahoots with Iran and Syria, allowing them to attack our country in exchange for assuring his re-election...and will point to CNN carrying the story as "proving" that the plot is real.

5. I don't think the Syrian Govt. is laughi

Its rather desperate there and the pro government forces will do anything to maintain control while hundreds are dying.


I also think that CNN placed this story for a reason to fuel weird
Obama plots on the far right aka Alex Jones. I always question timing on stories .

9. Doubtfully, but what a creative way to mess with the already messed up minds of those on

the right who want instability in the Middle East, who will foment war, and who generally will vote here for the guy on the white horse. These people are so easily manipulated.
