Following up on yesterdays post- The “resignation” of the alleged Deputy Minister of Oil.
Are you familiar with the saying “The devil is in the details”?
Which is sometimes said as “God is in the details”
Though, I prefer the devil version ;)
That saying refers to something that one can get caught up on or can be found by paying attention to the details. In paying attention to the details of lack there of, I am more of the mind that this resignation was promoted in the way it was -to create a specific perception and promote an agenda.
The resignation was interesting for the details and the lack of details. Some I touched on in the previous post-
-The fact that there is no Ministry of Oil
-Or that the video was released by Aljizahnews a clear play on Al Jazeera
-That the video appeared on You Tube and was placed there by the “opposition”
-In another article the man identifies himself as an “assistant” but does not indicate to whom?
All these details...they are like little tiny clues just waiting to be uncovered. If someone is paying attention.
Let’s expand on these curious details and see where the devil it takes us.
As I mentioned yesterday Syria does not have an “Oil Ministry” They have a Minister of Petroleum and Mineral Resources. This alleged Deputy, one would think, would have used the correct terminology to name his place of employment. But since it wasn't, he didn’t.
The man who “resigned” yesterday was quite likely not the Deputy Minister of anything.
By all information on hand he was an engineer, probably did run a refinery and given that Syria has a state run Oil business, as opposed to the western private sector type business, the man who resigned yesterday may have been appointed, when appropriate, to conduct business on behalf of the government. You can read up on him here
But does that make him a member of the Syrian government? I am going to say, NO.
It appears to me the Deputy Minister of Petroleum and Mineral Resources might really be a man named- Abdo Hossam El Din. We can read about him here
“Abdo Hossam El Din, Deputy Minister of Petroleum and Mineral Resources opened English training course set up by the firm Trowers & Hamlins on the transfer agreements with natural gas, service contracts and contracts for BOOT / BOT in the oil and gas, and at the headquarters of the General Organization for Petroleum within 23-24/3/2011.
Specialists and technicians from the Ministry of Oil and Mineral Resources Participated in the training as well as from the General Petroleum Corporation and its subsidiaries and the General Organization for refining and General Establishment of Geology.”Different name then the fellow from yesterday!
Therefore it would seem quite possible we are looking at two different people.
There is also this bit of info left by another commenter, I thank you also!
When putting this through the translate, we get a very different picture of just who this defector was and what he was up to prior to his conveniently timed defection
Translate has definite shortcomings but, I think you’ll get the gist of it?
“Engineer Hussam Abdo of religion in a video and put it on the Internet yesterday that he declares, "bolting" of the system and his resignation from the party of power and his intention not to attend the conference atheist th party. It was interesting that the engineer Husamettin "posing" in the sense that the adjective "Deputy Minister of Oil" in an attempt apparently to raise the price of the "National Council" the Syrian president, who rushed to Glion proof "welcome!" The media was quick turn of the acclaim for this "cracking the largest of its kind in the system" since the beginning of the intifada Syrian!?
But is it really, Deputy Minister of Oil, and if so, in what sense?
Sources of "truth" in the oil ministry revealed that the central body of control and inspection was about to issue a warrant for throwing custody on the movable and immovable property on the background of the discovery of receiving millions of dollars illegally through the exploitation of his posts career, especially his job as president of the Administrative Committee for the distribution of gas in the Ministry of Oil, and accepted by the General Establishment of Geology. Through the first function, and via the Mafia in the length of the country, enabling Husamettin also confirms the staff of the ministry of "management of the monopoly of a major gas distribution, especially after the eruption of the crisis in Syria, which enabled him to put millions in his own pocket."
"sold secrets huge geological map Syrian foreign companies excavating for oil and gas, which is considered a state secret like the secrets of military "
The long and short of it is- The defector is not the Deputy Minister as in a member of the Syrian Government. It appears this claim was promoted to create the perception of a high profile defection.
That defection was of course promptly “recognized” with joy by the illegitimate Syrian National Council in Turkey.
- Syrian opposition leader Burhan Ghalioun on Thursday welcomed the defection of the deputy oil minister and told AFP he expects more government officials and politicians to follow suit.
- “I hail the deputy (oil) minister who defected and I call on all government members and public servants ... to abandon this regime and join the ranks of the revolution for freedom and dignity,” said Ghalioun, head of the Syrian National Council, the main opposition group.
- “I expect for sure that there are other government officials and politicians who will follow suit,” he added.
It appears that another criminal has joined the ranks of the NATO Syrian National Council in Turkey.
One who was probably going to be imprisoned for what appears to be profiting off of insider knowledge.
Putting millions in his own pocket.
Selling State secrets including the geological where about of oil, gas and perhaps other commodities.
He is a perfect fit for the rest of the criminals NATO has organized.
Keep in mind the perception created by this alleged high level defection and todays news, out of Turkey of course.... that two generals and a colonel defected from the Syrian Army.
Which means the Syrian National Council is spreading the manure generously
Ankara Turkish officials Friday said that two Syrian generals, a colonel and two sergeants have defected from the Syrian army and crossed into Turkey, a day after Syria's deputy oil minister also deserted President Bashar Al Assad's regime.See, Ghoulian told you all yesterday, he "expected" more defections for sure.
When you wish upon a star......
I am taking all this to mean that some sort of assault on Syria is impending.
But, I’ll spare you all and save that for another post....... Until then?!
We have had a debate on just who is the much touted defector and what is his importance or non importance in the Syrian government structure?
So I am going to add another picture to this post.
To confuse issues :0
Or clarify :)
You decide ?
The minister was accompanied with Eng Abdo Hossam El Din, Deputy Minister of Oil and Ali Abbas, Director of GPC and Khalid Madiha Deputy Director-General of SPC and the heads of boards of directors and general managers of companies, Awda,Kawkab and Dijla .The man, third from the right is the Minister of Petroleum and Resources Sufian Allaw
Continuing to his left we see Abdo Hossam El Din- Deputy Minister of Oil
To his left Ali Abbas and the furthest left individual is identified as Khalid Madiha
The Deputy Minister shown here is not the same person who has been promoted as a high level Syrian government defector. (Refresh your memory in the previous post linked at the beginning of this one)
Thanks to b @ Moon of Alabama for bringing this picture to my attention
