“What I can say for sure herein is that what the country is now being told by the White House cannot be true and the fact that this information has been provided in this format raises the most serious questions about the handling of our national security.”

The Khan Shaykhun chemical attack took place on April 4 2017 in the town of Khan Shaykhun, Idlib Governorate of Syria. At the time of the attack, the town was under the control of Tahrir al-Sham, previously known as the al-Nusra Front. The OPCW-UN Joint Investigative Mechanism — as well as the governments of the United States, United Kingdom, and France — have attributed the attack to the forces of Syrian President Bashar al-Assad.

White House claims on Syria chemical attack ‘obviously false’
Published on Apr 12, 2017 — Earlier the US released a declassified intelligence brief accusing Syrian President Assad of ordering and organizing the chemical attack on civilians in the rebel-held town in the Idlib province.
At the same time, the report ‘contains absolutely no evidence’ to prove this, says Theodore Postol, Professor in Massachusetts Institute of Technology (MIT) and leading CW expert.
