Seymour Hersh: US Lied About Syrian Chemical Attack Then Bombed Them Anyway


The Antimedia has the article Seymour Hersh: US Lied About Syrian Chemical Attack Then Bombed Them Anyway.

Those commentators who can review these startling revelations but still condone Trump’s actions with a lazy ‘Assad is still a bad guy and must be overthrown’ mindset argument are being intellectually dishonest, with themselves and others. As was the case in 2013, there is still very little evidence that Assad has ever used chemical weapons — particularly in the attacks that the U.S. has tried to pin on him — yet this is the standard by which the corporate media and our respective governments have instructed us to judge Assad. Even without this conclusive evidence, shortly after the April events, U.S. ambassador to the U.N. Nikki Haley stated Assad will fall from power.

People who don’t read stories like this would have no reason to doubt the lies published in the corporate media. I do read these stories, and tend to believe what Seymour Hersh writes. It is very frustrating to have this “knowledge” while reading commentary from people who don’t know or refuse to entertain the possibility of what Seymour Hersh writes.
