Now Mattis Admits There Was No Evidence Assad Used Poison Gas on His People

Posted by Martin C. Fox on February 10, 2018

The truth slips out occasionally, especially when the government storyline is so blatantly false.

Don’t count on this happening again anytime soon.

Maybe Maddog was slipped a Seymour Hersh article, maybe one on Hillary.

Lost in the hyper-politicized hullabaloo surrounding the Nunes Memorandum and the Steele Dossier was the striking statement by Secretary of Defense James Mattis that the U.S. has “no evidence” that the Syrian government used the banned nerve agent Sarin against its own people.

This assertion flies in the face of the White House (NSC) Memorandum which was rapidly produced and declassified to justify an American Tomahawk missile strike against the Shayrat airbase in Syria.

Mattis offered no temporal qualifications, which means that both the 2017 event in Khan Sheikhoun and the 2013 tragedy in Ghouta are unsolved cases in the eyes of the Defense Department and Defense Intelligence Agency.
