Are the intelligence sources who proclaimed Assad responsible for the gas attack the same ones who have provided all that fake news in the past?
Remember Saddam's weapons of mass destruction? Remember the Gulf of Tonkin? Remember how Putin conspired with Trump to win him the election?
It's hard to know who to believe these days. After all, there's at least the possibility ISIS could have planted some sarin containers on the ground hoping Syria would bomb them and release the gas.
Is it too much to ask for the source of the information placing blame?
They may be 100% correct. But these days it's difficult for the average news consumer to give credibility to everything we are told.
Addendum: I began reading Annie Jacobsen's "Phenomena" during lunch Friday. And in the first few pages she described how a famous astrologist named Louis de Wohl wrote columns for American newspapers in the early 40s. Remarkably, he made some predictions that proved true. But they weren't true, they were fake news stories planted by the British. For you see, the astrologist was actually working for British intelligence assigned to help "organize American public opinion in favor to aid Britain." Once the U.S. entered the war, he went back home to England where he directed his propaganda work at the Nazis.
