Even if it was, that should have been none of our business. Deploy Sarin in Alabama, we have a problem. Thousands of miles away in an area known for perpetual violence – not so much. Heartbreak, maybe. Strategic interest, no. That’s IF it happened. Dr. Theodore A. Postol, professor at MIT, presented a scientific analysis which suggests it did not happen (at least as we were lead to believe):
This abbreviated summary of the facts has been constructed entirely from basic physics, video evidence, and absolutely solid analytical methods. It demonstrates without doubt that the sarin dispersal site alleged as the source of the April 4, 2017 sarin attack in Khan Sheikhoun was not a nerve agent attack site.
It also shows beyond a shadow of a doubt that the only mass casualty site that could have resulted from this mass attack is not in any way related to the sites that are shown in video following a poisoning event of some kind at Khan Sheikhoun.
This means that the allegedly “high confidence” White House intelligence assessment ssued on April 11 that led to the conclusion that the Syrian government was responsible for the attack is not correct. For such a report to be so egregiously in error, it could not possibly have followed the most simple and proven intelligence methodologies to determine the veracity of its findings.
Since the United States justified attacking a Syrian airfield on April 7, four days before the flawed National Security Council intelligence report was released to the Congress and the public, the conclusion that follows is that the United States took military actions without the intelligence to support its decision.
Furthermore, it is clear that the WHR was not an intelligence report.
No competent intelligence professional would have made so many false claims that are totally inconsistent with the evidence. No competent intelligence professional would have accepted the findings in the WHR analysis after reviewing the data presented herein. No competent intelligence professionals would have evaluated the crater that was tampered with in terms described in the WHR.
Although it is impossible to know from a technical assessment to determine the reasons for such an egregiously amateurish report, it cannot be ruled out that the WHR was fabricated to conceal critical information from the Congress and the public.
It cannot be ruled out? Given the fact that just about everything from D.C. in the past 100+ years has been a big, steaming pile of lies, it seems it would rule it in.
Can solar declination, wind direction, and chemical science overcome the …. Never mind… Postol / Washington’s Blog.
This assessment, if true, would demonstrate not the first deception from Washington. It certainly won’t be the last.
Little, if any, of this will reach the ears and minds of average ‘Muricans of any political persuasion. Did you know Let’s Make a Deal! is back on the TeeVee??
