Was the Syrian rebellion instigated by NATO/USA/ Council on Foreign Relations?
The rebellion started in 2011
from CFR website in 2005
“In 2005 and 2006, the U.S./Middle East Project joined in consultations among leading policy institutions in the Arab world in the formation of an international consortium that focuses on issues associated with democratization and regional reform. The purpose of this network is to mobilize Arab research capacity in support of reform in the Arab world that is realistic and home grown. In September 2005, the Arab founding members of the initiative jointly chose Dr. Bassma Kodmani to be the full-time director for the program. From October 24-25, 2005, the Secretariat of the Arab Reform Initiative convened in Cairo to discuss the organization’s work plan for 2006. The Arab Reform Initiative’s website is accessible to the public (in both English and Arabic) at http://www.arab-reform.net.”
“The presence of Syrian National Transitional Council head Bassma Kodmani at the 2012 Bilderberg conference clearly indicates that power brokers at the elite confab will be discussing the effort to topple President Bashar Al-Assad and install a NATO-friendly administration in the violence-stricken country.
Syria Regime Change On Bilderberg Agenda
Kodmani is the Head of Foreign Affairs with the SNC, a coalition of Syrian opposition groups based in Istanbul, Turkey. While at the Bilderberg meeting she will be in the company of the likes of former Secretary of State and accused war criminal Henry Kissinger, warhawk Richard Perle, and Thomas E. Donilon, National Security Advisor for the Obama White House.”

“Attending Bilderberg 2012 as an ‘international’ participant was Bassma Kodmani.
So who is Bassma Kodmani? The answer to that question is also the answer to the question: what the hell is happening in Syria? This is where it gets interesting (and worrying) for Bilderberg followers.
Kodmani was at Bilderberg in 2008, the last time it was here in Chantilly. She is a member of the European Council on foreign relations – its parent group, the council on foreign relations, is a sort of über lobby group, a couple of rungs down from Bilderberg, but still hugely powerful.
There’s a lot of CFR/Bilderberg crossover. Honorary chairman of both is David Rockefeller; co-chairman of the CFR is Robert Rubin (he was here); and on the CFR’s board of directors are Fouad Ajami and Henry Kravis, both at Bilderberg 2012.
Bassma Kodmani is also the executive director of the Arab Reform Initiative. This body, set up in 2004 by the CFR, is helping to steer “a comprehensive process” of “democratic reform” in the region. In 2005, the Syrian National Council came into being. Bassma Kodmani was a founding member, and is on the executive committee. Kodmani is one of the SNC’s two spokespeople, alongside Radwan Ziadeh (who has a flawless Washington pedigree – look him up). According to its website, the SNC is a non profit public policy research organization register in the District of Colombia and headquartered in Washington DC. Just up the road.
I asked Tarpley about Kodmani. He doesn’t mince words. “She’s a Nato agent, a destabilizer, a colour revolution queen. The fact that Kodmani was there is a scary one for Syria”, says Tarpley.
To those gathered outside, at least, it looks increasingly like, at this year’s Bilderberg, the war of regime change got signed off. In the airport lobby, on the way home from Bilderberg, I looked up at a TV monitor to see Bilderberg attendee and CFR board member Fouad Ajami talking about how Syria is about to become another Libya. That sound you can hear? It’s all those juicy defence contracts being scratched out around Chantilly. Fuel the jets and open the champagne, boys. We’re going in.

Syrian National Council (SNC)
Since the beginning of the Syrian Revolution, the opposition has worked to unite its
efforts to create an all-inclusive representative body for the nation. The goal of this
body is to support the Syrian people’s revolution and their struggle for freedom, dignity,
and democracy. Over the course of six months, the concept of a political umbrella
organization, which encompasses the youth of the revolution, the nation’s political
forces, and national figures emerged. This organization would deliver the message of
the Syrian people in the field of international diplomacy, with the aim to overthrow the
regime, its figureheads, and the pillars on which it stands in order to establish a
democratic, multi-party, and civil state.
