MATTIS: No Evidence Yet That Assad Responsible For Attack

But he still wants war with Syria.



In response to a reported chemical weapons attack earlier this week in Syria, President Donald Trump has pledged to attack the country based on his belief that Syrian President Bashar Al-Assad was behind the attack. But, during a Congressional Hearing, Secretary of Defense James Mattis admitted that there was no evidence that the attack occurred, but he did state that he “believes there was a chemical attack in Syria.”



Mattis stated that he was trying to get investigators with the Organisation for the Prohibition of Chemical Weapons (OPCW) into the country to confirm that the attack occurred.

But Mattis admits that even if the investigators can confirm that the attack occurred, they will not be able to confirm who committed the attack.

The popular narrative is that the attacks were committed by Syrian President Bashar Al-Assad. President Donald Trump has been mirroring that all week in threatening Tweets directed at Syria and Russia.

But as pointed out by Tucker Carlson, not only is there no proof that Assad was behind the attacks, but it makes no sense for Assad to commit the attack. Carlson pointed out that Assad’s forces were winning the civil war in Syria, and how committing a chemical attack is one of the few things he could do to change that.

Both sides of the aisle in Washington are demanding war with Syria. Maybe everyone should step back and wait for some actual evidence before sending our brave men and women in the military to war.
