Hillary Clinton backed Obama’s call for military strikes (i.e., war) against Syria. She was sure, based on the U.S. intelligence and interpretations, that Assad had ordered chemical weapons attacks several weeks earlier on August 21, 2013. To this day, that assertion has not been established or proven. In fact, “New analysis of rocket used in Syria chemical attack undercuts U.S. claims.”
A co-author of the new analysis is Prof. Theodore Postol of MIT. He says “I honestly have no idea what happened. My view when I started this process was that it couldn’t be anything but the Syrian government behind the attack. But now I’m not sure of anything. The administration narrative was not even close to reality. Our intelligence cannot possibly be correct.”
